Delays can be hard to quantify even when the schedules are good. It’s even more challenging when the schedules are poor. The instructor will share his court-tested methods for evaluating construction project delays when the schedules are either poor or non-existent. The course will include practical, real-world examples of analyses performed when the scheduling information upon which the analysis was based was poor.
