The impact of delay damages – What to expect when you’re expecting construction litigation
Abstract: Calculating damages in cases of construction delays can prove especially tricky when an owner causes the delay. Why? Because a significant portion of a contractor’s costs will need to be allocated among multiple projects. This article describes two types of overhead costs that require cost segregation or job-specific allocations and discusses several other types of damages a contractor could pursue — while a sidebar looks at remedies for owners who face delays caused by contractors.
