Claiming Time and Money under Construction Contracts

Construction Related Training
Date: 20th November 2019 | Time: 9.30am – 1.00pm


This half day course is designed to focus on what contractors need to do to increase their chance of maximum commercial recovery when making claims for time and money.  This course will go over claims under construction contracts generally, and identify key aspects that will relate to claims generally.  Such topics will include:

  • Knowing your contract;
  • Understanding the mechanisms for claiming;
  • Know what it is you are actually claiming;
  • Distinguishing between delay (prolongation, disruption and acceleration);
  • The routine of record keeping

Alongside this overview, we shall cover the key distinctions in popular forms of contract (NEC3/4, JCT/ ICC), and what specific differences you need to know in terms of claiming.  This course will also give an insight into how best to defend claims from Sub-Contractors. 

There will also be a dedicated Q&A session at the end of this course to focus on any queries on previous, live or upcoming claims.
