The detail in disruption

This seminar will provide an insight into disruption claims and how disruption claims can be resolved into claims for recovery of cost (loss).

Tue 4 Sep 2018
06:30 PM - 08:00 PM
RICS, Office B303, The Design House, Sufouh Gardens, Dubai, UAE
1.5 hours formal CPD


Where construction works slow down there is obviously a loss of productivity, but does that loss of productivity mean a party is incurring a cost. If there is no loss of efficiency, the answer is probably no, but if a party has lost efficiency, he may no longer recover enough money through his contract price to cover his costs. When facing such a loss the party may feel he has grounds to make a claim for Disruption.

This presentation explores the issues specifically around typical contemporary records relating to plant and labour and explores how records can evidence losses of productivity, losses of efficiency and how they may ultimately substantiate a disruption claim. The presentation also looks at common methodologies, such as the Measured Mile Approach.

Learning outcomes

Attendees will gain an understanding of:

  • The difference between loss of productivity and loss of efficiency.
  • The different types of losses on a project and how they may be related to evidence that arises in EOT claims.
  • How contemporary records can inform the calculation of the loss.
  • The principles of the measured mile approach and how it compares to other approaches.
