Schedule Delay Analysis

TYPES OF CONSTRUCTION DELAY

Basic Distinctions:

  • Excusable and Non- Excusable
  • Compensable and Non-Compensable
  • Concurrent and Non-Concurrent
  • Critical versus Non-Critical

Excusable Delays:

” Excusable delays are caused by conditions that are reasonably unforeseeable and not within the contractor’s control” Note: Always check the particular construction contract documents for valid delay factors and limitations.

  • General labor strikes
  • Fires, floods and other natural disasters
  • Owner directed changes
  • Errors and omissions in the plans and specifications
  • Differing site conditions or concealed conditions
  • Lack of action by government bodies
  • Intervention by outside agencies

Non-Excusable Delays:

  • Late performance of subcontractors
  • Late performance by suppliers
  • Faulty workmanship by the contractor or subcontractors
  • A project specific labor strike caused by either the contractor’s unwillingness to negotiate or by unfair job practices.

Note: Verify the particular contract language  for definitions and limitations.
