As-Is: just comparison - Split: adding logic check - Modified: create update if not available. Modeled: Representing delay events in schedule. Additive: add to a base - Subtractive: from as-built. Single/Multi base: No. of CPM networks used. Stepped: simulating delays sequentially from start to end or vise versa. @magedkom /in/magedkom ArabPlanners @profplanner Source Data Validation Needed for Various Methods
  12. Measurement of Delay: form the contract completion date to the actual completion date (retrospective), or form the current contract completion date to the projected completion date (prospective). It’s important to agree on the benchmark programme that will be used (BIM can help) to carry out the reviews to resolve questions of culpability for delay or to estimate the likely delay period. 2.2- Methods of Delay Analysis - RICS Methods of delay analysis: -Simple and relatively simple 1. Overview of the facts: It deals with relatively straight forward claims when the cause and delay are apparent. 2. Comparing actual and planned progress: It’s comparing the activities timing using the contemporaneous documents to review the reasons of discrepancies/ delay. -Detailed, forensic and more reliable 3. Critical path analysis (CPA): Based on the logic-link using either planned (prospect. or retrosp.) or as-built programme. 4. Focused methods of analysis: Over shorter periods using an updated programme (prospective: TIA), or particular periods with as-built data (Retrospective: window or time slice). @magedkom /in/magedkom ArabPlanners @profplanner

  15. The parties should attempt so far as possible to deal with the time impact of Employer Risk Events as the work proceeds (both in terms of EOT and compensation). Applications for an EOT should be made and dealt with as close in time as possible to the delay event that gives rise to the application. A 'wait and see' approach to assessing EOT is discouraged. Where the Contractor has complied with its contractual obligations regarding delay events and EOT applications, the Contractor should not be prejudiced in any dispute with the Employer as a result of the CA failing to assess EOT applications. EOT entitlement should be assessed by the CA within a reasonable time (4.1: not later than one month) after submission of an EOT application by the Contractor. The Contractor potentially will be entitled to an EOT only for those events or causes of delay in respect of which the Employer has assumed risk and responsibility (called in the Protocol Employer Risk Events) that impact the critical path.

  18. OTHER TECHNIQUES 11.4e Delay impact is determined in one of two different ways. A prospective delay analysis identifies the likely impact of historical progress or delay events on a completion date. The conclusions of a prospective delay analysis may not match the as-built programme because the Contractor's actual performance may well have been influenced by the effects of attempted acceleration, re-sequencing or redeployment of resources in order to try to avoid liability for liquidated damages or due to other Employer and Contractor Risk Events. A retrospective delay analysis identifies the actual impact of the delay events on the identified actual or as-built critical path. 11. 7 Other methods, which may be reasonably deployed in particular circumstances having considered the criteria in paragraph 11.3 above, include: project wide retrospective as-planned versus as-built analysis (i.e. not in windows), time chainage analysis, line of balance analysis, resource curve analysis, and earned value analysis. 11.8 In order to avoid or at least minimise disputes over methodology, it is recommended that the parties try to agree an appropriate method of delay analysis before each embarks upon significant work on or after the event delay analysis. @magedkom /in/magedkom ArabPlanners @profplanner

  20. WHICH TECHNIQUE TO USE? 11.3 The Choice of technique depends on: (a) the relevant conditions of contract; (b) the nature of the causative events; ( c) the nature of the project; ( d) to ensure a proportionate approach, the value of the project or dispute; ( e) the time available; (f) the nature, extent and quality of the records available; (g) the nature, extent and quality of the programme information available; and (h) the form in which the assessment is being made. 11.2 Irrespective of which method of delay analysis is deployed, this is particularly relevant where there is a significant risk that the remaining duration projections, logic links, calendars and constraints within the baseline programme (preferably the Accepted/Updated Programme) might produce anomalous results. @magedkom /in/magedkom ArabPlanners @profplanner
  21. Common Sense 4.14 Although the Updated Programme should be the primary tool for guiding the CA in its determination of an EOT, it should be used in conjunction with the contemporary evidence to ensure that any resulting EOT is both reasonable and consistent with the factual circumstances. It will also be necessary for the parties to apply common sense and experience to the process to ensure that all relevant factors are taken into account, and that any anomalous results generated by the delay analysis are properly managed. Overarching these considerations, any resulting EOT must be consistent with the contractual requirements regarding entitlement. @magedkom /in/magedkom ArabPlanners @profplanner

Windows/snapshot or update method The use of electronic progress reports to analyse incrementally the changes to the as planned programme with as built assistance. Impact/Update – Time-slices Driven by a delay schedule and subject to time slices within which the anticipated and actual progress is analysed. Strong in addressing mitigation and concurrent delays.

  26. 3- Forensic Use of Analysis – AACE 29R-03 - CHOOSING A METHOD Legal considerations (3): Contractual requirements, ADR Forum & Legal requirements. Technical considerations (3): Purpose, Data availability and reliability & Complexity of the dispute. Practical considerations (5): Size of the dispute, Budget for analysis, Time allowed, Analyst experience & Past history in the project). If the purpose of the forensic schedule analysis is to demonstrate only excusable, non-compensable delay, numerous methods are available since the forensic schedule analyst will probably not need to deal with concurrent delay. If the purpose is to demonstrate compensable delay, other methods may be more appropriate such as one of the observational dynamic or modeled methods. @magedkom /in/magedkom ArabPlanners @profplanner
  27. 4- Concurrent Delay @magedkom /in/magedkom ArabPlanners @profplanner
  28. Concurrent Delay Definition Definitions The delay events normally happen at different timings, during different periods, affecting different paths of activities and with different effects. Therefore, it is challenging to specify what parameters to be adopted to define the concurrency. In this regard, AACE mentioned numerous definitions as follows: (1) SCL Protocol: The term “concurrent delay” is often used to describe the situation where two or more delay events arise at different times, but the effects of them are felt (in whole or in part) at the same time. To avoid confusion, this is more correctly termed the “concurrent effect” of sequential delay events. (2) Concurrent delay arises when two or more events cause delays that take place or overlap during the same period, either of which occurring alone would have affected the ultimate completion date. (3) Concurrent delay occurs when there are two or more independent causes of delay during the same time where most courts do not require that the period of concurrent delay precisely match. The period of “concurrency” of the delays can be related to circumstances, even though the circumstances may not have occurred during exactly the same time. AACE differentiated between literal concurrency (true concurrency) and functional concurrency (concurrent effect) considering that the functional theory recognizes the real-world limitations of exact measuring of delays and inaccuracy of programmes. Briefly, concurrent delay takes place when two independent events occur, one is an employer risk event and the other is a contractor risk event, and both events have a concurrent effect of delaying the project beyond the contractual completion date. @magedkom /in/magedkom ArabPlanners @profplanner

  32. Causation Causation is a term used in tort and contract. It is a topic that plays a key role when dealing with commercial disputes. Sometimes, one delay event may cause other delay events. In this case, these events are dependent, not concurrent. It is a primary condition to have a concurrent delay which is that the delay events are independent. This is one of the first checks to be done in analyzing the causation of the concurrent delay. Overall, causation is a troublesome issue, particularly when there is a concurrent delay according to Galoo Ltd v Bright Grahame Murray (1994, Court of Appeal). Legal Causation One type of causation is legal causation. It analyzes the breached duty. In such cases, contract provisions define the events that lead to the contractor’s entitlement to an extension of time. Factual Causation Factual causation checks the (proximate cause). The first step in establishing causation, after identification of possible events, is to eliminate irrelevant causes with consideration of common sense. This is the purpose of the “but for” test. Mainly, the courts are concerned with assigning responsibility for the damage by identifying the effective cause of them with consideration of common sense, not to explore all possible causes of a particular incident according to Orient-Express Hotels (2010). @magedkom /in/magedkom ArabPlanners @profplanner
  33. Prevention The emergent of the prevention principle goes back to the 1838 case of Holme v Guppy (building contract) where the employer was not able to give possession of the site, so this prevented the commencement of the work in the due time. The Court of Exchequer (appellate court) established what Baron Parke called “clear authorities” stating that: “if the party be prevented, by the refusal of the other contracting party, from completing the contract within the time-limited, he is not liable in law for the default … The plaintiffs were therefore left at large”. However,acts of prevention by an employer did not set time at large if the contract provided for extension of time in respect of those events (Multiplex Constructions (UK) Ltd v Honeywell Control Systems Ltd, 2007). In North Midland Building (2018), Judge Fraser J decided that the prevention principle is not an overriding rule of public or legal policy. This means that the parties can agree to deal with the concurrent delay in any other particular way, and the express terms prevail. Twivy, in a SCL meeting in 2019, criticized the displacement of the prevention principle by express terms relying on that it is an example of a very old principle of English law that a man shall not get benefits of his own fault. Lord Finlay LC in New Zealand Shipping Co Ltd v Societe des Ateliers et Chantiers de France (House of Lords, 1919) ascertained that: “this is regularly true in all cases: If that be a principle of law, that a party shall not take advantage of its own wrong.” @magedkom /in/magedkom ArabPlanners @profplanner
  34. 6- Legal approaches Prospective vs Retrospective Delay Analysis Overall, prospective analysis is helpful for the parties to move with lights on about the potential effect of the delay and the extension of time entitlement. On contrary, it can never be accurate due to blindness about what will be the actual effects and damages. Therefore, logic retrospective analysis is then required to move the assessment from foresight to hindsight. All-or-Nothing Approaches. There are three approaches that lead to an all-or-nothing solution as follows: - Dominant cause approach (e.g., pacing situation). - First-in line approach (sequential delay). @magedkom /in/magedkom ArabPlanners @profplanner The first-in line approach assigns responsibility of the delay to the first event of occurrence especially if the later event did not cause additional delay. The delay caused by employer considered as sequential, not an example of concurrent delay because the project was already delayed by contractor and the employer events did not in fact cause any additional delay to completion (Royal Brompton Hospital, 2000 & Saga Cruises BDF, 2016). This approach of analysis does not reflect the effect of the culpable delay because it does not segregate the effect of each delay event. So, this may lead to unfairness. “Dominant” word can have several meanings such as operative, ruling, prevailing and most influential. However, this is not always correct to assign liability based on a dominant cause because it deprives the contractor of its right. Independent Broadcasting Authority v EMI Electronics Ltd (1980)
  35. Time-Related Approaches The major legal analysis approaches that focus on deciding the entitlement of extension of time are: - Apportionment approach. - Malmaison approach. - Other cases (DeBeers & Walter Lilly). Money-Related Approaches Regarding the money-related approaches, the apportionment approach is similar to the burden of proof approach (Walter Lilly: Global claim & Arcadis UK Ltd v May and Baker, 2013) where both of them examine the parties’ responsibility (causation)/ contribution to the damages but by using different methodologies. @magedkom /in/magedkom ArabPlanners @profplanner Malmaison approach, 1999 (English School as per Walter Lilly, 2012): “if there are two concurrent causes of delay, one of which is relevant, and the other is not, then the contractor is entitled to an extension of time for the (full) period of delay caused by the relevant event notwithstanding the concurrent effect of the other event.” The apportionment approach (Scottish School: City Inn Case, 2007) examines contribution of the parties which is similar in nature to contributory negligence or contribution among the joint wrongdoers. Brodie McAdam asserted that this was wrong because it could make a contractor charged with liquidated damages for a period that acts of prevention by employer were operative during it. De Beers UK Ltd v Atos Origin IT Services UK Ltd (2010): "The general rule in construction and engineering cases is that where there is a concurrent delay to completion, the contractor is entitled to an extension of time, but he cannot recover in respect of the loss caused by the delay." This applies “time but no money” solution so the contractor gets an EOT, but neither contractor nor employer gets compensation.
  36. Contractual Mechanisms The Standard Forms Many contract draftsmen prefer to leave the problem of concurrent delay unaddressed. This results in little guidance for any contract administrator in determining an assessment under the contract. Concurrent delay is not obviously handled in the standard forms of construction contract used in the UK such as JCT and NEC. It makes it confusing when a concurrent delay takes place because no standard approach is adopted, and different rules and procedures may apply under different jurisdictions. @magedkom /in/magedkom ArabPlanners @profplanner Therefore, due to the absence of any express provisions addressing concurrent delay, the parties typically find themselves applying the generic terms of the extension of time and using those terms to make their arguments. Unless the parties are able to reach an agreement, a dispute may be referred to adjudication, arbitration, or the courts where a series of common law principles will emerge and evolve.
  37. Extending Project Duration The “Dot On” Principle The Net Method vs The Gross Method The “dot on” principle adds the duration of the extension of time to the current completion date, not to the date of the event (the gross method). Therefore, each time the contractor gets an extension of time, it should be added contiguously according to Balfour Beatty (1993) and Carillion Construction (2017). @magedkom /in/magedkom ArabPlanners @profplanner Excusable Delay (ERE) ERE #1 EOT #1 Contract Completion Date Excusable Delay (ERE) ERE #2 EOT #2
  38. Special Case: ERE after the contract completion date Excusable Delay (ERE) ERE In-Excusable Delay (CRE) Contractor should not be exonerated Excusable Delay (ERE) Extension of Time In-Excusable Delay (LDs) Contract Completion Date ASCE DAS 4.6: This type of delay is referred to as “offsetting delay,” recognizing that an owner-caused delay may result in recognizing a noncompensable time extension to offset all or a portion of any potential liquidated damages. @magedkom /in/magedkom ArabPlanners @profplanner
  39. 10.13 An Employer should be aware that if it instructs a variation after the contract completion date where the failure to complete by the contract completion date has been caused by Contractor Delay, the Employer may lose its entitlement to liquidated damages if the Contractor then accelerates to recover the Contractor Delay to Completion at its own cost and that results in the variation (an Employer Risk Event) becoming the effective cause of Delay to Completion. 10.14 Employer Delay to Completion does not exonerate the Contractor for all its delays prior to that Employer Delay to Completion occurring. The effect of the Employer Delay should be assessed and any EOT determined due should simply be added to the contract completion date.

  40. Concurrency UK Cases of Law Holme v Guppy 1838: Prevention Principle and Authorities' Establishment (Time at Large) Leyland Shipping v Norwich Insurance 1918: Dominant Cause and But-for test (Proximate Cause) Henry Boot Construction v Malmaison Hotel 1999: Malmaison Approach Royal Brompton Hospital v Hammond & Others 2000: First-in line Approach Multiplex Constructions v Honeywell Control Systems 2007: Propositions & Authorities Review City Inn v Shepherd Construction 2010: Apportionment Approach (Scottish School) Walter Lilly v Mackay 2012: English school provides a full extension of time for the concurrent delay North Midland Building v Cyden Homes 2018: Prevention principle is not an overriding rule These cases are the major cases of law used in the assessment of concurrent delay with mentioning the analysis approach adopted by each case:
  41. Concurrent Delay – CMS (Other Jurisdictions) - US: “No harm, no foul” rule applies and neither party may benefit monetarily from the delay. - Australia: The current Australian authorities favour the “first in time” approach considering the sequential delays. - Scotland: City Inn found that it must firstly be considered whether there was a “dominant” cause of delay. - Germany: Concept of concurrent causality as parallel but independent contributions to causation. - Austria: Austrian courts use the so-called “theory of spheres”, through which it can be determined whether any particular cause of a delay falls into the employer’s or the contractors’ sphere of responsibility. @magedkom /in/magedkom ArabPlanners @profplanner
  42. Technical Perspectives Critical Path Analysis vs Legal Analysis Approaches Applying this explanation to the legal analysis approaches can be against the first-in line approach because the second delay affects the programme paths with the same amount of delay as the first event plus an additional delay if any. Also, as the delays overlap, the duration cannot be distributed between the reasons of delay according to the apportionment approach. This endorses analyzing each delay event separately without considering a dominant cause of delay. Therefore, it is only the Malmaison approach (extension of time for the (full) period of delay caused by the relevant event ) that complies with the technical point of view of the critical path analysis. @magedkom /in/magedkom ArabPlanners @profplanner New Critical Path CRE Original Critical Path Contract Completion Date ERE Effect ERE EOT?? New Critical Path ERE Original Critical Path Contract Completion Date CRE Effect CRE EOT??
  43. Summary of the Approaches @magedkom /in/magedkom ArabPlanners @profplanner Dominant Cause Approach First-in Line Approach Apportionment Approach Time-but-no-money Approach Malmaison & Burden of Proof Approach In conclusion, Malmaison and the burden of proof approaches do not allow a full solution individually in all cases, but each one can solve a part of the entitlement. Malmaison approach looks for the extension of time entitlement, and the burden of proof approach looks for the entitlement of compensation and damages. On the other hand, dominant cause (all-or-nothing) and apportionment approaches provide a full solution individually either assigning the full liability to one party or apportion the liability of delays and decide the extension of time and damages accordingly. However, the “time but no money” approach can be a fair solution as an application of sett off (no harm, no fool).
  44. Logic and Common Sense Logic and Common Sense Unquestionably, critical path analysis is a helpful evidential tool, but it is not always determinative as it has some limitations according to Mirant Asia Pacific and London Underground Ltd v Citylink Telecommunications Ltd. If there are insufficient records to simulate the history, the analyst will be in serious difficulty. Furthermore, the quality of data is crucial, and it may affect the correctness of the analysis. In other words, as critical path analysis can only process the facts and data fed in, if the inputs are unreliable, the outputs will be unreliable too. For example, in Skanska Construction UK Ltd v Egger Ltd, the analysis based on baseline programme was of no evidential use because it included a fundamental error. Also, in Ascon Contracting Ltd v Alfred McAlpine Construction Isle of Man Ltd, the contractor’s delay analysis was rejected because it was wrong. These limitations are clear from the fact that analysts may produce different assessments, whether, or not, they have used the same data and methodology because of the level of subjectivity and amount of assumptions they involve in identifying the sequence and interpreting results. Therefore, as it is subjective in nature, it should consider applying common-sense tests. In John Barker Construction, the judge said that: “the architect, amongst other things, must make a “logical analysis” in a methodical way of the impact which the relevant matters had or were likely to have on the contractor's planned programme." Logical analysis should be based on facts and common sense in order to reach reliable results. @magedkom /in/magedkom ArabPlanners @profplanner
  45. -Contractual entitlement Typically, construction contracts contain provisions entitling the contractor to an extension of time on the occurrence of a particular event provided the progress of the works or time for completion is delayed as a consequence. -Contractual compliance Generally within an extension of time clause, the contractor will be obligated to submit notice(s) and detailed particulars within a specified time frame. -Governing Law FIDIC 2017 for Construction: 1.4 Law .. The Contract shall be governed by the law of the country (or other jurisdiction) stated in the Contract Data (if not stated, the law of the Country), excluding any conflict of law rules. 7- EOT Claims @magedkom /in/magedkom ArabPlanners @profplanner

  47. 8- Recommendations 1. Clarity in contracts and law (definition, CP, TF ownership and consequences). 2. Official pacing notices, to consider the sequence of events and avoid constructive pacing problems. 3. Agreement on LDs for employer delay, SCL recommends that: “20.4 Arguments about proof of loss could be reduced or avoided altogether if the contract contained an agreed amount per day that can be applied to each day of prolongation. This is the reverse of the normal Employer's liquidated damages provision. It may be necessary to have a number of different agreed amounts to be applied depending on the stage in the project.” 4. Due diligence of the mitigation duty by the contractor. 5. Partial taking over option for the sake of both parties. 6. Caring about the soundness of the programme revisions. 7. The EOT entitlements should be reviewed and adjusted with time, until all effects of delay events are revealed (retrospectively) because the predictions using the prospective analysis are not always correct.
