Construction projects frequently suffer from delays. For years construction industry professionals have struggled to unravel the causes and assess periods of delays without the assistance of up-to-date practical advice on the subject - until now.

About Time provides a straightforward reference for everyone working in the building and civil engineering industry who needs to understand delay claims. It contains clear explanations of:

  • various forms of construction programming techniques
  • how to monitor and record progress
  • how to analyse delays
  • strengths and weaknesses of the different techniques
  • requirements of the main standard forms of contract
  • key English case law concerning construction delay claims
  • different means of resolving disputes
This book is written in simple English, free from acronyms and programmers' jargon, and tackles the difficulties of delay analysis head on. As a result About Time strips away the mystique surrounding the subject of delay analysis and reveals the limitations of the various methods of delay analysis commonly used.
