Drawing on their experience, the authors outline a practical approach to the presentation of delay and disruption claims in construction within a legal, contractual and technical framework. Detailed case studies are used to describe the different problems that can be encountered and explain the more dynamic approachto the settlement of claims, often taken in the international market, to help reduce the time and cost oflegal proceedings. In assisting readers in the appropriate analysis and assessment of delay and disruption, this book
