Washington, DC (PRWEB) January 18, 2012
Early next month, WPL Publishing will sponsor a webinar to help professionals in the construction community decide how to choose a schedule delay analysis method for their projects and claims.
There has been plenty of discussion about construction project delays and delay claims. There has been even more discussion about which method is best to use. However, there has been very little discussion on how these professionals should go about selecting a method. Which practical matters should be considered when selecting a schedule delay analysis method? Professionals attending this webinar will learn what to consider when facing this choice. To register for the 90-minute event, scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 2, 2012, at 1:00 (EST), visit http://tinyurl.com/85xlho9.
Going back to the late 1960s, hundreds of articles have been published on the topic of which delay analysis method is the “best method.” This is still a wide-open issue among schedulers, claim consultants, construction managers, contractors, and attorneys. The level of debate has increased in recent years since AACE International published its Recommended Practice -- Forensic Schedule Analysis. What has not been widely discussed or written about is which factors should be considered when choosing a delay analysis method for a particular project or claim.
During the webinar, answers to the following questions will be provided:
- How do construction professionals go about choosing a delay analysis method?
- Which factors and issues should be addressed before committing to a potentially lengthy and expensive process?
- Is the choice of delay analysis method irrevocable once it is made?
- What is the risk of trying to change methods mid-stream?
Webinar attendees will leave this event with insight into the 11 factors that a scheduler should at least consider when making a choice.
Addressing attendees will be Navigant Construction Forum (NCF) Executive Director James Zack. NCF strives to be the construction industry’s resource for thought leadership and best practices on avoidance and resolution of construction project disputes worldwide. He once served as executive director, Corporate Claims Management, Fluor Corp., one of the world’s largest publicly-owned engineering, procurement, construction, and maintenance contractors working in the areas of energy, chemicals, infrastructure, manufacturing, life sciences, and mining. In the construction claims field, he is a recognized and published expert in mitigation, analysis, and resolution or defense of construction claims and disputes.
After Mr. Zack’s presentation, there will be an interactive 10-to-15 minute question-and-answer session addressing relevant topics.
