The bulleted items are written primarily from a contractor’s vantage point, but they can easily be reconfigured from the owner’s view, with respect to what the contractor should do in terms of its scheduling practices.

As discussed in post 1, “Concurrent Delay Defined,” the courts have recognized the fact-specific nature in determining concurrent delay. However, the following general guideline has been established in numerous court decisions and published recommended practices where concurrent delay is an issue: For a delay to be concurrent, it must affect the critical path. Delay events that merely consume float, or slack time, on non-critical activities are not concurrent delays.
