Programme Highlights

The first half of this seminar will summarise the talk entitled the ‘Analysis of Construction Delay’ which was presented to the HKIE last year by Mr Clive Holloway of FTI Consulting on 18 September 2019 and he will extend the talk through to its completion. This will conclude the time related aspect of EOT delay and disruption claims, and the analysis thereof. The seminar will then move on to address the associated compensation of costs with respect to prolongation, and other losses, expenses and damages.

The second half of the seminar will be presented by Mr Scott Ramsden of FTI Consulting and will address the Quantum that flows from time related EOT delay claims. He will explain that prolongation costs are divided into direct (non-core) costs and indirect (core costs), and how they relate to critical and non-critical delay. The talk will also cover other general quantum and cost topics, such as; contracts, pricing, cash flow, valuations, loss of profit, variations, site / head office overheads, preliminaries, value engineering, levies, acceleration, damages, retention, finance charges, insurance, interest, escalation, etc.

The overall aim of the seminar is to illustrate how time and money relate, and how they dynamically react with each other, and intrinsically depend on each other.



Free of Charge.
