Delays in the steel construction works - Claims presentation requirements.

Timely analysis of the construction process is crucial to effective contract management. Early recognition of events hindering the works allows for a limitation of economic loss. In case of delays, central objectives of contract management comprise the assertion of justified claims and the dismissal of unjustified claims. At that, claims for extension of time are the factual basis for negotiations between the parties to the contract. In the context of litigation, a survey substantiating the claims is presented to the court for assessment. Comprehensive evidence is required in accordance with applicable construction law. Compensation payments claimed for workshop and assembly planning, pre-fabrication of steel components, material procurement, assembly, etc. are based on specific time factors. With particular regard to steel construction where a high share of works is performed off-site, employers often lack comprehensible information on pricing to evaluate such demands. To reach an agreement, it's recommendable to provide substantiated pricing details in good time. Notification after delays have occurred often results in mistrust between the parties.
