A construction project can be delayed or disrupted for several reasons. It is crucial to the proposed management of a construction project to understand the relevant events that can trigger a delay or disruption and then implement the correct process to manage the delay or disruption.

This one-day course introduces the common causes, prevention and how to manage pro-actively the consequences of project delays. The course emphasises practical instruction and its real-world application. It is also a rare opportunity to learn about the delay analysis.
