5 Star Hotel Complex, Oman

Worked as the delay analyst on an ongoing hotel complex extension of time claim. Provided programme updates generated from contemporaneous progress records and time impact analysis methodology used over 17 No. windows for an international main contractor’s extension of time claim.

Public Authority for Social Insurance Project (PSAI), Oman

Worked as the delay analyst on an extension of time claim for the main contractor constructing 8 No. residential buildings, 1 No. Office building, Headquarter building and associated utilities/external works. Developed lists of critical and sub-critical delays through 18 No. windows by collapsing programme updates. Prepared windows analysis report which included periods of critical impact for each delay event, related prolongation periods (delay event effect on milestone completion) and possible reasons for delay. Finally produced master list and programme baseline comparison of delay events as-planned versus as-built.

Bid Bid to Sur (75km) Highway, Oman

Worked as the delay analyst on an extension of time claim for the main contractor working on a 75km major road infrastructure project. Initially two programme updates and report had to be prepared retrospectively because there were no project records for the first nine months of the project, and this completed the records for the 21 No. windows. Delay events were then researched and fragnets produced for time impact analysis. Starting with window 1 and working sequentially through to number 21 the window programmes were impacted with the relevant delay events, progress was imported, programme rescheduled and then used to start the following window time impact analysis. Finally, a time impact analysis was prepared for ROP OBC Ductwork.

Majlis (New Government Buildings), Oman

Worked as the delay analyst on an extension of time claim for the main contractor constructing the new Majlis Oman. The analysis consisted of 14 No. windows and the initial task was to collapse each window back to the completion date at the start of the window to develop a list of dominant delay events for each window. As-planned versus as-built programmes were then produced for the delay events in each window prior to delay periods being added. There were no records for the final year of construction, so the last update provided by the Contractor was impacted with all client/site instructions and changes (Impacted As-Planned) during that period to give a projected completion date.
