From the creation of the schedule to the successful conclusion of the project, Construction Scheduling: Preparation, Liability, and Claims, Fourth Edition provides the most complete and practical resource on the major elements of the construction scheduling life cycle you’ll find anywhere.

The contract negotiation and scheduling techniques described in this indispensable resource show you how to deal with all scheduling contingencies, and how to formulate your documentation accordingly. By integrating “how to” information with legal background, Construction Scheduling strikes home the importance of proper scheduling. Its solid analysis and demonstration techniques strengthen your position at the bargaining table and in court.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Identify your strengths and weaknesses in any scheduling negotiation
  • Quantify damages resulting from delay
  • Choose the right scheduling method
  • Juxtapose “as built” against critical path method schedules
  • Determine compensable delays and your recourse
  • Negotiate delay impacts to a reasonable assessment
  • Factor in owner and contractor expenses with formulas backed by precedents
  • Gain compensation from the impossible including government-involved concurrent delay
  • Navigate the issue of “side switching” to avoid having your expert disqualified to testify

Construction Scheduling: Preparation, Liability, and Claims, Fourth Edition saves you countless hours of research by providing instant access to valuable resources like these:

  • A compendium of federal scheduling specifications that provides clauses developed to combat a variety of software-user abuses
  • A specific ‘cookbook’ on expert’s conduct and the examination of Daubert principles to scheduling experts
  • Actual case histories and model projects, with problems provided for training purposes
