Abstract:

This paper focuses on the principles and practices in formulating and assessing claims for extensions of time due to excusable delays. Typical frequency and magnitude profiles of claims for extensions of time are derived from a surveyed sample of 67 civil engineering projects in Hong Kong, and major categories of claims for extensions of time have been identified from the data obtained. Recommendations are made to minimize claims for extensions of time and to achieve more consistent assessments of the unavoidable claims, for example those relating to inclement weather.
