Claims Delay & Analysis

Our claims works and delay analysis techniques are driven by the Society of Construction Law Delay and Disruption Protocol. We are able to use each of the recognised techniques to determine the extent of delay. Each technique has its merits and disadvantages and their use is generally determined by the information available for the project.

As-Planned v As-Built

This technique compares the duration of an As-planned activity (or the duration of all As-planned activities) on the original programme with the As-built duration for that same activity (or those same activities) on the As-built programme.

Impacted As-Planned

This method adds an identified excusable delay event (or events), either as a separate activity (or activities), or onto the duration of an existing activity (or activities), into the As-planned programme. The duration of the activity is derived (where possible) from the resource allowances on the As-planned programme.

Collapsed As-Built

This involves removing from the As-built programme, identified, excusable delays to show what the Completion Date would have been if those delay events had not occurred.

Time Impact Analysis

Time Impact Analysis is based on the analysis of the effects of delay events over the entire length of a project by looking at the events which have affected progress within ‘snapshots’ of the contract period sequentially. It is best described as bringing progress up to date to the eve of the delay event before entering the delay event and reviewing its impact.
