Often the most significant unanticipated costs on a construction project are the financial impacts associated with delays. Determining the cause and understanding the damages due to delay and disruption can be complex, time consuming, and can achieve mixed results. Delta’s forensic scheduling experts and accountants are experienced with the variety of industry accepted delay analysis methods. These methods provide the independent analysis necessary to effectively evaluate the cause of the delay, as well as the true financial impact to the project.

In addition, our scheduling teams work with our forensic accounting and forensic engineering experts to determine the financial impact of the delay. This work includes determination of extended general conditions, extended field costs, home office overhead, incentive/disincentive amounts and liquidated damages.
