In many construction projects, time is of the essence.
Failure to complete a project on time can result in claims of delay by either the owner, the construction manager, or the contractor against each other and, in some cases, against the lead design professional. Damages may take the form of liquidated damages, lost revenues, and claims for profit and overhead, among others. These claims focus on issues concerning the critical path of construction, requests for time extensions, response times for change order requests and requests for information (RFIs), substantial completion, punchlist items and final completion. Delay claims are complex and often arise as part of a much larger litigation requiring representation by knowledgeable construction counsel. We have that knowledge and can defend these claims for our clients.
