Sample text

Or should the analyst try to put herself in the shoes of the Project Manager at the time the delay occurs? It would be disingenuous to suggest that analysts are united in their answers to these questions. There is, however, an emerging consensus supported not only by many analysts but by case law, as well. First, a little background. Perspectives—Forward Looking and Backward Looking Though rarer now, there was a time when delays were sometimes analyzed by “impacting” the as-planned schedule. The as-planned schedule is usually defined as the earliest complete and Owner-approved Project schedule.

Other forms of excusable delays are compensable, such as differing site conditions, Owner-directed changes, and constructive changes that may cause a delay. No-Damage-for-Delay Clause Some contracts are more restrictive in defining compensable delays. It is not uncommon for a Contract to use exculpatory language concerning delays. Exculpatory language is language that exculpates, or excuses, a party from some liability. The most general approach used in contracts concerning delays is the broad no-damage-for-delay clause.

Identifying the As-Planned Schedule The analyst must carefully choose the schedule that best represents the Project’s as-planned schedule. For example, the Owner may have included a schedule with the bid documents as a guide for the Contractors bidding the work. However, it may be erroneous to use the Owner’s version as the ­as-planned schedule for the Project because the Contractor may plan to construct the Project in a different sequence or manner. Typically, the Contractor’s initial schedule submission serves as the Project as-planned schedule.
