Projects Delay Analysis and Claims Preparation

Date: 11 December 2017 - 15 December 2017
Course ID: ADDQ003/2017
Duration: 5 Days
Fee US $ + VAT: 3950 US$
Venue: Istanbul / Turkey

Introduction:

More and more projects are suffering delays and cost overruns leading to effort and time-consuming disputes. Delay analysis, like many other technical fields, is both a science and an art. As such, it relies upon professional judgment and expert opinion and usually requires many subjective decisions. One of the most important of these decisions is what technical approach should be used to measure or quantify delay and identify the effected activities in order to focus on causation. This course is designed to provide you with knowledge and hands-on workshops that will reduce the degree of subjectivity involved in the current state of the art based on two international standards:

• The UK SCL (Society of Construction Law) Protocol

• The US AACE (Association for the Advancement of Cost Engineering) Recommended Practices

The sessions are reinforced with over 30 year experience and knowledge of the trainer in the construction industry in many countries.

Objectives:

After completing this course the attendees will be able to:

1. Understand and review the main concepts of project planning and CPM scheduling.

2. Understand the source of delays in a project and how to reduce them proactively.

3. Understand the differences between the common delay analysis methods and techniques

4. Reduce the time for preparation of EOT claims

5. Understand the contractual and claim-related procedures in FIDIC new red book

6. Develop a personal career path in correspondent areas of Claim management and Delay Analysis

Who should attend:

Owner representatives, Architects, Contract Administrators, Commercial Managers, Planners, Schedulers, Project Managers, Construction Managers, Project Engineers.
