The seven legal elements necessary for a successful claim for a constructive acceleration

The construction contracting process for a project is extremely complex. As a consequence, the process often results in contractual- related dispute that ultimately affects the design team, owner, general contractor, project manager, subcontractors, and vendors. The most common contractual dispute concerns project claims for a time extension due to delays and/or additional work not included in the original contract. In some instances, the delay results in the need for the project manager to accelerate the construction schedule in order to compensate for the delay so as to meet the completion date specified in the contract documents. Time delays associated with a construction project result in increased variable costs that may be recoverable depending upon the type of project delay.
