This webinar is focused on pacing delay, a controversial delay issue in the construction industry. Currently there is little literature on pacing delay and case law is a bit sparse. Thus, owners and contractors often find themselves at odds with one another over the practical effect of pacing delay in a delay claim situation.The webinar defines the term; identifies what constitutes pacing delay; sets forth the contractor’s legal right to pace an owner caused delay; and addresses the practical impact of a pacing delay, both to the project as well as to a delay claim. This webinar is intended to assist attendees in a better understanding of pacing delay and how the issue may be dealt with by both owners and contractors.
