Find out what a typical day in the life of our Planner and Forensic Delay Analyst Richard Worsey
I am a planner and forensic delay analyst. The two roles are interchangeable and in my opinion we cannot be considered delay analysts without appropriate and contemporaneous live planning work. Construction changes constantly and without recent experience it is difficult to maintain credibility.
Bob Cooper explains the recent changes made to the Delay and Disruption Protocol by the Society of Construction Law
The Society of Construction Law is reviewing its Delay and Disruption Protocol, which was issued in 2002, a process that will ultimately result in the preparation of a second edition. In the first of a series of review updates, the Society has changed its guidelines for retrospective delay analysis. In this article, Systech International Director Bob Cooper explains the change and outlines where further clarification is required.

Systech International E-alert: Part 1 - Float mapping and the extension of time
It is well established that in most contracts the planned critical path will change many times during the life of the project. One of the problems when using a planned v as-built method of delay analysis, particularly on a pure observational basis, is that it is not often clear where the critical path has been or when it change. Bob Cooper, our Director of Disputes, gives us a solution to this problem.
