Loading Events

RICS is delighted to invite you to a CPD event run on Concurrent Delays in Construction Projects – The Debate which will be held on 8 April 2020 United Arab Emirates time zone (UTC +4)

Summary of the Topic: What is concurrency? Is there true concurrency? What happen when it is established? And How it affects EOT and compensation entitlement?

Event Overview:

Concurrency is a term that is always referred to in any delayed project by both Employers and Contractors. Quite often the term “Dominant Delay” is accompanied with the term concurrency.

We will cover how to identify a dominant delay and which method of delay analysis helps with the same.

We will also try to establish a basic understanding of the topic and its effect on EOT entitlement and the associated costs

** There will be no legal discussion on the matter.

** Various contracts deal with concurrency differently; this discussion will be generic and will not refer to a specific contract or jurisdiction.

 Learning Outcome:

  • Understanding what concurrency is;
  • Understanding how it affects EOT and cost entitlements;
  • Knowing how to establish a concurrency argument;
  • Understanding the factors affecting the above.
