B2:  You did What? When? An Interactive Construction Delay Analysis Workshop

Saturday - Sunday, June 23-24, 2018 (1.5 DAYS)
1.2 CEUs

KrebsHeadshotInstructor:  James E. Krebs, PE, CCP, FAACE
Mr. Krebs is Senior Vice President of Administrative Controls Management, Inc., a registered Professional Engineer, and a Certified Cost Professional with over 30 years of project management, project controls, and construction experience including scheduling, planning, estimating, cost control, claims analysis, field supervision, and administrative services. Mr. Krebs is a Fellow and past president, vice president, and director of AACE International. He received his Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering and his experience includes refinery, heavy construction, nuclear, industrial, automotive, and light manufacturing. Mr. Krebs has been involved in the development of many of ACM’s training classes as well as presentations, and has worked with clients to develop customized, focused training to address specific client concerns and include industry specific examples and terminology, all while adjusting the training to fit into the clients’ demanding calendars. Each of the customized courses has received outstanding feedback from the attendees.
This interactive course is centered on a comprehensive, demonstrative case study in which the attendees analyze project delay situations from the Owners and Contractors perspectives. An overview of delay claims including contractual responsibilities, effective techniques to analyze and assess a delay claim, delay damages, and methods of resolution and settlement will be presented.

Project delay is an extremely costly problem for a project. In addition, arbitration and/or litigation causes business disruption and increased costs that can be prohibitive. The ability to resolve questions of delay in an orderly and efficient manner can be the difference between success and failure on a project.

The techniques are presented from an after-the-fact analysis perspective; however, the basic principles and techniques prove useful in evaluating time impacts during the execution of a project. Attendees participate in each of the roles to gain an understanding of the claims issues’ excusability, compensability, or non-excusability.
