Making Successful Extension of Time Claims

Tuesday 31 Jul 2018
5:30 pm for 6:00 pm start
McCullough Robertson, Level 11 Central Plaza Two, 66 Eagle Street

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.

Nick advises on construction and construction insurance law, focusing particularly on arbitration relating to major infrastructure and energy-related projects. He advises governments, employers, main contractors, specialist subcontractors, construction professionals and insurers on all aspects of construction law, including procurement, contract production and negotiation, claims preparation and dispute resolution.

Karen is an experienced construction and property sector professional with 25 years’ experience working across the commercial construction, engineering, and infrastructure sectors as a project director, project manager and superintendent on projects valued at more than AUD$1 billion. Karen has worked as expert witness on matters with sums in dispute up to AUD$500,000,000. She has been cross-examined in the Supreme Courts of New South Wales and Western Australia, and in ICC arbitral proceedings in Australia and the United Arab Emirates, including being cross-examined by Queens Counsel. She has given evidence in relation to methods of delay analysis, delay and productivity-related disputes.

Drinks and canapes will be served following our guest speakers
