This webinar is focused on pacing delay, a controversial delay issue in the construction industry.  Currently, there is little literature on pacing delay and case law is a bit sparse. Thus, owners and contractors often find themselves at odds with one another over the practical effect of pacing delay in a delay claim situation. The webinar defines the term; identifies what constitutes pacing delay; sets forth the contractor’s legal right to pace an owner caused delay; and addresses the practical impact of a pacing delay, both to the project as well as to a delay claim. This webinar is intended to assist attendees in a better understanding of pacing delay and how the issue may be dealt with by both owners and contractors. 

Attend this information-packed webinar by industry expert James G. Zack, Jr., who will also offer recommendations concerning defenses against pacing delay claims. Finally, the webinar offers practice pointers for both owners and contractors when considering pacing delay.
