Documenting Construction Delays


Review the importance of contemporaneous documents.

When documenting delays there should be a healthy focus on contemporaneous documentation. The reason why courts rely on contemporaneous project schedules, is the same reason why courts are going to rely on contemporaneous documentation. The documentation is being prepared at the time of what is happening on the project, is being used to manage the project, and is not being prepared in anticipation of litigation. This video reviews the importance of documenting delays and discusses the need for schedule reviews and approvals and daily reports, logs and diaries.
