Time: 05:00pm - 07:30pm

About the Seminar:

The talk will be focused on pacing of delays, a prevalent occurrence on construction projects both in Singapore and abroad. There is unfortunately little literature, and a paucity of legal authority on this difficult subject. Employers and contractors thus often find themselves at odds with one another over the practical effect of pacing in the context of delay claims. In this presentation, the speakers will explain:

   1. what constitutes pacing

   2. when contractors might pace on account of an employer delay

   3. the practical impact of pacing delay, both on the project and on delay claims

The talk aims to create a better understanding of pacing and how it may be dealt with by both employers and contractors.
