This was a well attended, Qatar Learned event, held in Doha, October 2016.
Andrew Woodward is a Chartered Civil Engineer with a contracting background drawn from the delivery of complex civil engineering and infrastructure projects. Based in Qatar, Andrew brought his detailed construction experience to the wider GCC region helping parties with matters of dispute surrounding the difficult issues of quantum and delay.
Concurrent delay is the primary weapon used by Employers to avoid liability for prolongation costs. Everyone has an opinion of what is concurrent delay, but there appears to be little agreement as to what it actually is. The presentation provided a simple discussion around the contentious topic of Concurrent Delay – An exploration of what it is, how it can be identified and what it really means.
