Florida Delay Claim Lawyer
Help with Construction Delay, Inefficiency, Impact & Scheduling Claims
Contractors, subcontractors, and owners must all work together to complete construction projects on schedule. However, numerous events can occur that may delay a project—a material supplier forgets to place an order, an owner repeatedly fails to respond to requests for information, an overzealous building inspector makes it difficult to obtain necessary permits. Defects in plans and specifications can easily stop a project while design professionals decide on a solution, leaving contractors idle. At Linkhorst & Hockin, P.A., we represent Florida contractors, subcontractors, and owners in disputes over the timeliness and efficiency of performance on construction projects.
Protecting Our Clients’ Interests in Construction Delay & Inefficiency Matters
The complexity and expense of modern construction projects, the number of parties involved, and the challenge of coordinating schedules frequently give rise to claims for delay and loss of productivity. Project changes, scope modifications, missed deadlines and unexpected complications can also lead to disputes that interrupt projects and payments—no matter how smoothly the bidding process may have gone or how carefully the contracts were written. Whether you are a contractor, subcontractor, or owner, schedule delays and overruns are problematic, and the resulting costs need to be borne by the responsible party. Our attorneys bring a comprehensive understanding of the law and a practical approach to resolving claims involving:
- Delay or acceleration
- Efficiency loss
- Directed, constructive, and cardinal changes
- Differing site conditions
- Equitable adjustments
- Surety bonds
- Payment and collections
Handling delay and inefficiency claims typically involves the employment of construction consultants, the use of critical path method (CPM) based on scheduling analysis, and the preparation of detailed reports in support or opposition to such claims. We have the resources and professional relationships necessary to gather and present this information efficiently and thoroughly to the benefit of our clients. A properly prepared claim can be crucial to obtaining payment as well as in the negotiation or mediation of disputes.
When parties cannot reach an agreement, the delay or inefficiency at issue may require claim prosecution or defense and litigation or arbitration. Linkhorst & Hockin, P.A. has a solid reputation as strong, effective advocates for our clients. You can count on us to assert your rights and interests in court, and do everything in our power to achieve the result you seek.
