Construction Documentation: Essential and Effective Project Records

Every General Contractor and Sub Trade needs to have an in-house system for recording the on-site events of a construction project. Procedures for project control are quite simple, as it only requires recording essential project documentation for future estimating purposes but is essential in documenting actual delay impact damages on your projects, when you want to submit a delay impact claim to an Owner or defend a delay claim by a subtrade.

By maintaining effective project records, every contractor will be prepared to advance a delay impact claim to an Owner, for additional costs borne due to lost labour productivity, extended site indirect costs, extended head office costs and additional costs for insurance, bonding and lost opportunity, or defend a delay claim advanced by a subtrade.

Upon completing this course, you will learn the following:

  • The importance of proper project records for effective management of projects
  • The importance of proper records for effective presentation of delay impact claims
  • The principles of Contractual Entitlement, Cause and Effect, and Quantification of Damages
  • Maintaining Effective Project Records
  • Guidelines for Effective Construction Documentation (24 Elements)
  • Construction Attorney’s Perspective on Effective Construction Documentation
