Changing Trend in Risk Allocation - Differeing Site Conditions
 
Presented by:
Jim Zack, CCM, PMP - Navigant Consulting, Inc.
 
Summary:
The Differing Site Conditions clause is one of the oldest clauses used in construction contracts, having been created by the U.S. Federal government in 1926. It is generally accepted that the object of the clause is to transfer the risk of latent site conditions to the owner, thus enticing contractors to reduce their contingency cost at the time of bid. The promise of the clause is that if the contractor encounters a “materially different” condition during the execution of the work, the owner will compensate the contractor for the resulting cost and/or time. Over the years, the Courts and Boards of Contract Appeals have been slowing changing the interpretation of risk allocation under the clause. A series of Court and Board cases have increased the contractor’s risk concerning differing site conditions.

 
 
     
 
Concurrent Delay - The Owner's Newest Defense
 
Presented by:
N/A
 
Summary:
When owners impose liquidated damages at the end of a delayed project contractors often respond with allegations of concurrent delay. That is, contractors argue that some or all of the project delay was actually caused either by the owner or an external force, concurrent with the contractor’s delays, and therefore liquidated damages should be forgiven or excused. As owners generally do not impose liquidated damages until the end of the project, frequently a contractor’s claim of concurrent delay is not submitted until the project is complete. This paper explores mechanisms, based on recent court rulings that owners employ to defeat a contractor’s “concurrent delay defense”.
