Assessing concurrent delay in relation to extensions of time and delay damages is often a problematic and complicated issue. Not only is it necessary to identify the causes of delay, but depending on the terms of the contract and/or the jurisdiction, it may also be necessary to apportion liability when there has been a contribution to the delay by both the employer and the contractor.
In this two-part series on concurrent delay, we cover the following:
Part 1 – Gives an introduction to concurrent delay and explores what it is and is not; and
Part 2 – Explores the clauses on concurrent delay in relation to both time and money in standard form contracts in common use across Australia.
