Are concurrent delays TRULY concurrent?
Date: 14 September 2017
When we hear the term ‘concurrent delays’, we automatically get dragged into a grey area of debate and case laws. From my perspective, it all depends on how we interpret the concurrency. For example, two concurrent delays can happen during month three on a project, therefore we can say they were concurrent. But what if one of the delays occurred in the first week of month three and the other delay occurred on the third week, would they still be considered concurrent?
We can take this example even further and narrow it down and find out if the delays occurred in the same week or same day and even at the same time? Only accurate job records will give us the answer or at least lead us to the right answer.
Having just read this article on www.lexology.com, I’d be keen to hear other industry experts point of view on the subject.
