Quantification of Delay and Disruption in Construction and Engineering Projects

Quantification of Delay and Disruption in Construction and Engineering ProjectsDelay and disruption often impacts entire projects and is prevalent throughout the entire construction and engineering industries - no project or construction professional is immune to the effects. In this practical guide, FTI Consulting’s Robert Gemmell provides a thorough review and analysis of the methods to quantify financial loss caused by both delay and disruption. Robert also covers the planning and programming of a construction project, and the primary methods of delay analysis.

Quantification of Delay and Disruption in Construction and Engineering Projects is aimed at any construction professional anywhere in the world involved in preparing, assessing, managing and/or deciding issues concerning the:

  • Assessment of additional time to complete the work
  • Additional payment for delay and/or disruption to the progress of a construction or engineering project

"Here we have at last an Australian work of legal scholarship and authority written on the challenging subject: the quantification of delay and disruption on construction and engineering projects. Robert Gemmell’s text book is as comprehensive as it is valuable, providing as it does a practical guide to the critical exercise of quantification of the loss. The subject matter is not only written for application in Australia, but also internationally."

The Hon Justice Peter Vickery, a Judge of the Supreme Court of Victoria and Judge-in-charge of the Technology, Engineering and Construction List.
