May Meeting Topic: Pacing Delays

Topic Information:

Join us Thursday, November 19th, for our next RMS monthly meeting. This month we will have a special presentation from James Zack, the Executive Director of the Navigant Construction Forum, on Pacing Delays.

This presentation discusses a controversial type of delay in the construction industry -- pacing delay. The presentation will define the term and identify what a pacing delay is. It explores a contractor's right to create a pacing delay. The presentation also addresses the practical impact of a pacing delay, both to the project as well as to a contractor's delay claim. There is not a lot of literature on pacing delays and case law is sparse. Thus, owners and contractors often find themselves at odds with one another over the right to pacing delay and the practical effect of pacing delays in a delay claim situations. This presentation is intended to provide a better understanding of pacing delays and how they ought to be handled.

Attend this information packed presentation to:

  • Discover what a pacing delay is;
  • Learn how both owners and contractors cause pacing delays;
  • Understand the benefits and the risks associated with pacing delays;
  • Learn how pacing delay claims are impacted by concurrent delay and float consumption arguments;
  • Understand how pacing delay may result in less delay recovery for contractors
