Construction Schedule Delay Experts
Construction schedule delays and disruptions are common occurrences in the industry, often resulting in cost overruns and disputes among stakeholders such as owners, contractors, subcontractors, and design professionals.At Constructive U.S., we understand the significant impact of these delays and the need for a successful resolution. Our team of expert delay analysts specializes in construction schedule delay analysis, aiming to identify liability, validate claims, quantify damages, and assist in dispute resolution.
Utilizing critical path method (CPM) techniques, Constructive U.S. employs industry-standard means and methods to identify and quantify schedule delay claims in construction. We tailor our analysis technique based on various factors, including contractual requirements, source data availability, and the dispute’s complexity. Some of the techniques our experts utilize are as follows:
Impacted As-Planned: This technique involves modeling a baseline or planned schedule at the project’s outset to quantify delays. We analyze variances and delays by inserting an impact on the baseline schedule.
Collapsed As-Built or But For Analysis: This modeled technique removes delay and disruption events from the as-built schedule. By doing so, we determine the hypothetical completion date ‘but for’ these events.
As-Planned vs. As-Built Analysis: This observational technique compares the baseline or as-planned schedule with the as-built schedule or a progress update. It examines planned start and finish dates against actual start and finish dates of activities on critical and near-critical paths.
Time Impact Analysis (TIA): Employing a modeled technique, we analyze each delay and disruption event individually in chronological order to calculate its impact. This method quantifies each delay based on the schedule immediately before and after the event.
- Windows Analysis: Through this observational technique, we divide the overall project duration into smaller periods, or windows, to identify and quantify the actual impact of delays or disruptions. We compare the forecasted critical and near-critical paths from the baseline or as-planned schedule at the beginning of each period with the as-built schedule or progress update at the end.

Construction Delay Experts
Disruptions can cause significant delays in a construction project. At Constructive U.S., we conduct thorough analyses to understand the productivity impacts resulting from project interruptions. Our experts consider various factors, including alterations to the sequence of project tasks, the impact of concurrent operations, stacking of trades, duration compression of activities, and other factors that deviate from the planned workflow.
Regardless of the cause, our construction delay and disruption experts possess the technical expertise to address your project or case. Our team identifies the delay type when evaluating construction delays, including late start, extended duration, concurrent, pacing, and others. We then proceed to determine its excusability, compensability, and apportionment. Our approach typically involves the following steps:
Schedule review and validation
As-built validation and daily specific as-built schedule development
Identification and quantification of delays and disruptions
- Analysis of weather delays in construction
Constructive U.S. construction delay and disruption experts dedicate themselves to providing the technical expertise needed for your project or case.
