The most significant unanticipated costs on many construction projects are the financial impacts associated with delay and disruption to the works. Assessing these, and establishing a causal link from each delay event to its effect, contractual liability and the damages experienced as a direct result of each event, can be difficult and complex. This book is a practical guide to the process of delay analysis and includes an in-depth review of the primary methods of delay analysis, together with the assumptions that underlie the precise calculations required in any quantitative delay analysis. The techniques discussed can be used on projects of any size, under all forms of construction contract, both domestic and international. The authors discuss not only delay analysis techniques, but also their appropriateness under given circumstances, demonstrating how combined approaches may be applied where necessary. They also consider problematic issues including 'who owns the float', concurrent delay, early completion programmes, and disruption. The book has been brought fully up to date, including references to the latest publications from the CIOB, AACEI and SCL, as well as current case law. Broad in scope, the book discusses the different delay analysis approaches likely to be encountered on national and international projects, and features practical worked examples and case studies demonstrating the techniques commonly used by experienced practitioners. This is an invaluable resource to programmers and schedulers, delay analysts, contractors, architects, engineers and surveyors. It will also be of interest to clients' professional advisors managing extension of time or delay claims, as well as construction lawyers who require a better understanding of the underlying assumptions on which many quantitative delay analyses are based. Reviews of First Edition "John Keane and Anthony Caletka are pukka analysts in that tricky area of delays, programming and extension of time. I highly recommend their book Delay Analysis in Construction Contracts. Buy the book." (Building Magazine, February 2009) "The book′s stated purpose is to provide a practical guide for those interested in schedule delay analysis. It provides a good in-depth review of the most common delay analysis techniques.... An excellent book, full of practical tips for the reader and very timely in its publication. It is well worth the cost and a good read for anyone involved in schedule delay analysis." (Cost Engineering, February 2009) It achieves in spades its stated aim of being a practical guide for contractors, contract administrators, programmers and delay analysts, as well as construction lawyers who require a better understanding of the underlying assumptions on which many quantitative delay analyses are based.

The book is written in such a way that it can be utilized for an in-depth study into delays or as a quick reference guide for the assessment or formulation of delay claims. Practical examples are utilized to explain the delay concepts.This guide can be helpful in a number of ways to all people who at some stage or another are faced by the challenge a construction delay presents. Firstly, it will simplify the process of analysis of delay claims for those responsible for the arduous and time-consuming task. Secondly, the guide will also be helpful to the contractor to understand how delay claims are evaluated and how to formulate claims. The content is grouped in short chapters to ensure the guide can be utilized without necessarily reading all the chapters.-The basic terms, definitions, and concepts of construction delays are explained in Chapter 2. This forms the foundation the remaining chapters built upon to ultimately unveil the groundbreaking delay analysis method that was developed after several years of intense research. -What are the predominant causes of delays in construction projects? The findings of 21 independent studies on delays conducted in 16 different countries are discussed in Chapter 3. Guidance is also provided on how delay claims on each of the typical causes of delay should be dealt with. This is a very valuable tool in the assessment of delays or for the formulation of delay claims.-Chapter 4 summarizes the delay analysis methods currently utilized in the construction industry. The critique of the methods will come in handy when a choice of the delay method for a claim needs to be made.-Chapter 5 is the heart of the guide and describes the new delay analysis method in detail. This chapter will assist practitioners to navigate this potential minefield of complexities in the process of the assessment of delay claims. It also explains how to write a delay claim in 6 easy to follow steps.-Chapter 6 and 7 applies the new delay analysis method to some of the common form contracts utilized in the construction industry today.The delay analysis method described in the book is unique in that it assists practitioners holistically, incorporating all considerations in the analysis process. Other forms of guidance produce to date are mostly focused on the assessment of the criticality of the delay.
