When construction work slows 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 not, but if a party suffers a loss of efficiency, they may no longer recover enough money through the contract price to cover their costs. When facing such a loss the party may feel they have grounds for making 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.
