In mid-June, WPL Publishing will sponsor a webinar to help various types of professionals within the construction community understand and implement a pair of key tools for measuring project delays.

The industry continues to coalesce around a couple of approaches for measuring delay. The time impact analysis (TIA) approach measures delays that have yet to occur. In addition, the industry uses contemporaneous project schedules as a basis for measuring delays that have already happened, an approach that is less dominant. These two approaches are entirely compatible and, when combined, provide a comprehensive, project-schedule-based strategy for quantifying delays. The webinar, scheduled for Thursday, June 13, 2013, at 1:00 p.m. (EDT), will help attendees learn how and when to use each type of delay analysis.

The webinar, which will also cover contract language that supports these approaches, will help attendees do the following:

  • Examine critical path scheduling.
  • Review different types of schedule delay analysis methods and understand why the two methods are considered so powerful.
  • Work through an example and learn how to implement a contemporaneous schedule analysis.
  • Use an example to learn how to implement a time impact analysis.
  • Understand how these two approaches can form a comprehensive strategy for construction delay analysis.
  • Discuss existing legal cases supporting the use of contemporaneous schedule analysis.
  • Review contract language to implement these practices.
  • Know how to avoid disputes and resolve potential delay claims in the future without the need for litigation.

Addressing attendees will be Mark Nagata, a director and shareholder with Trauner Consulting Services Inc. His expertise lies in the areas of critical path method scheduling, construction claim preparation and evaluation, dispute resolution, technical document development, and cost analysis. He has performed virtually all types of analyses, including delay, productivity and efficiency, and cost and the determination of damages on varied projects throughout the United States and abroad.

Following Mr. Nagata’s presentation, there will be an interactive 10-to-15 minute question-and-answer session addressing relevant topics.

Webinar tuition is based on location, not number of participants, so each registration site can have multiple participants for one low price. To register, visit http://tinyurl.com/p5b7nqv.
