Saipem Australia Pty Ltd’s three valiant attempts to injunct GLNG Operations Pty Ltd from calling on bank guarantees left it with what might be termed a ‘flesh wound’. But its efforts leave us with a better understanding of how the notice provision in section 67J of the Queensland Building and Construction Commission Act 1991 should be interpreted, particularly with respect to the term ‘debt due’. Of wider importance is the approach of the Court in each case to the assessment of the balance of convenience in light of the bargain struck between the parties.

We are pleased to invite you to this seminar which will discuss the practicalities of extension of time and prolongation claims.

Our speakers, with extensive exposure to the complexities of construction project management and managing delay claims, will share their experience and explore the factual and legal basis for making and assessing extension of time claims.

Nick Longley, Partner of HFW, will discuss two recent decisions in Australia and England which provide some clarity of the judicial approach to the prevention principle. He will also discuss some recent practical experiences in setting 'the rules' for delay analysis in dispute proceedings.

Karen Wenham, Director of Diales, will look at a case study of a project which incurred both delay and loss of productivity. She will demonstrate how the time chainage method of project planning can be used to demonstrate and quantify the impact of issues arising from deviations from tender planning assumptions, latent conditions and variation works, on the project schedule and completion milestones.
