Time might not always be money, but construction delays cost!
A construction project’s success is determined by its completion within time and budget. This importance is amplified in the current fiscal climate, where restricted access to funding means employers and contractors are less able to tolerate costly delays. Delays may also result in litigation if there is a dispute over who was responsible for the project delay – so it is critical to capture, analyse and resolve project delays quickly.
This one-day course introduces the common causes, prevention and, in particular, how to manage pro-actively the consequences of project delays. The course emphasises practical instruction and its real-world application.
It is also a rare opportunity for you to learn about the mysterious world of Delay Analysis.
