PROVING DELAY; SECURING EXTENSIONS OF TIME; AVOIDING LIQUIDATED DAMAGES

Due to the unique nature of construction projects and the accompanying uncertainties and risk allocation, most contracts and subcontracts suffer from delays which cause overruns to the completion date. It is necessary for all those involved to be well prepared to ensure proper contract compliance and the prompt award of the appropriate extensions of time.

At Longworth Consulting, we have been representing contractors and subcontractors for over 5 years and in that time secured extensions of time on literally hundred of projects. The time has come, we feel, to let you into our secret as to the techniques we use and how to achieve proper extensions of time.
