A Guide to Concurrent Delay

Hesketh Henry was pleased to host the New Zealand Institute of Quantity Surveyors on 14 August 2018, where one of our construction partners, Nick Gillies, presented on concurrent delay.  The same presentation was later delivered separately to members in other parts of the country via a webinar.  This reflects our commitment to supporting the construction industry.

Concurrent delay is a common but poorly understood concept in construction.  It is also topical, with the English Court of Appeal recently confirming that parties may allocate the risk of concurrency in their contract terms, and this will not invoke the prevention principal when doing so.
