How do I calculate loss of efficiency due to out of sequence work?

1 month ago

The project I am working on has had significant delays as a result of the Contractor not holding to the original schedule. As a result I have had increased manpower for a significant time due to bouncing around the project trying to get what work is available at a given time completed. Now the schedule has slightly extended but I need to figure out a way to calculate the costs of the overages.

There are a few different ways to measure the impact disruptions on a construction project, and which method will be appropriate will depend on a number of factors, including the contract type, cause of the disruption, and how work was carried on in light of the disruption – among other factors. This article from Fox Rothschild does a great job of diving into the specific methods of calculating disruption damages: How Do Courts Measure Damages Related to Project Disruption?

Additionally, reaching out to one of these construction finance experts or business consultants might be useful, too. While I don’t have personal experience with calculating disruption damages, they likely will.
