Overview

Contracts can be your first line of defense against delays. But they have to be drafted very carefully. Construction Delay Claims gives you an in-depth analysis of all the pertinent clauses and details what they can and can’t do to minimize delays and avoid litigation.

Construction Delay Claims, Fourth Edition, by Barry B. Bramble and Michael T. Callahan is written for everyone involved with delay and impact construction claims—the most common form of disputes in the construction industry. You’ll find that this resource presents the most thorough, detailed review of delay claims liability available, including a complete description of the entire process for filing and pursuing claims along with more than
1,950 cases and analyses.

Construction Delay Claims gives you the information you need to determine your best course of action. The book presents detailed knowledge drawn from the authors’ thirty-five years of experience in the industry.
You’ll learn how to anticipate delays and mitigate damages through the use of advanced planning and immediate responses by the parties involved. You’ll also receive helpful instructions about the best use of construction schedules to avert delays, or to prove their impact if they do occur.

Construction Delay Claims keeps you completely up-to-date with the changes in the construction industry, and the construction litigation process. Coverage includes:

  • Effective ways to challenge a claimant’s use of the Total Cost Method of
    Calculation
  • The effectiveness of “no damages for delay” clauses
  • The use of ADR methods to resolve delay claims
  • The meaning and implication of concurrent delays
  • Cumulative impact effect of multiple change orders
  • The impact and probability of delays in design-build, construction management,
    and multiple prime contracting
  • Latest research into the effect and measurement of lost productivity
  • The most recent assessments of how states are applying the Eichleay
    formula

    Rental policy is terrible

    The book was fine (and required, so not much choice) but the rental policy online was misleading and not a bargain. The B&N store on-campus had a much better rental policy. I will never rent from them online again.
