Peckar & Abramson’s New York office will host a Breakfast Seminar titled: “CPM and Non-CPM Delay Analysis” on November 13, 2018 from 8:00am to 10:00am at the NYC Bar Association in New York, New York. Patrick J. Greene, Jr., partner in the firm’s New Jersey office and Howard M. Rosen, partner in the firm’s New York office will lead the discussion on issues encountered in dealing with delay claims including the pros and cons of commonly employed forensic techniques – such as cost/benefit considerations, contractual limitations and legal acceptability of such techniques.
This program will cover, among other critical topics:
• How do, or should, legal considerations influence the drafting of contractual requirements for CPM scheduling
and the implementation of schedule updates during the project?
• Constructive acceleration and delay mitigation in schedule analysis.
• The related concepts of “pacing” and “near critical path.”
• Why is there a debate among the experts over the concept and existence of an “as-built critical path?” What is
the opinion of the courts on this issue?
• What is concurrent delay? Why is it so diffcult and yet important?
• Where does subjectivity and judgment come into play in delay analysis?
• How do the forensic schedule experts overcome the problem of incorrect or useless schedule updates generated
by the parties during the project?
• Who owns or should own the float?
