Speaker: Alan Whaley BSc (Hons) Dip. (Adj.) LLM APA MAE MCIOB FRICS FCIArb

Our Speaker is Alan Whaley, a director within Arcadis Contract Solutions and a specialist in the forensic investigation of delay and disruption affecting major construction and infrastructure projects.

Alan is a chartered quantity surveyor, chartered construction manager, member of the Academy of Experts and RICS accredited expert witness, and commenced his career on site working as a carpenter. Alan has been appointed as independent delay expert and expert witness on behalf of clients, contractors and consultants on numerous occasions.

Alongside his professional career, Alan leads the Dispute Resolution Module for the University of Salford's LLM/MSc Construction Law and Practice programme. He is also a doctoral researcher and published author with interests in construction claims and dispute resolution issues.

This seminar aims to demystify the dark art of delay analysis, by examining some of the core theories, principles and procedures underlying the most common delay analysis methodologies.

Alan will explore the differing approaches to identifying the critical path and impact of a delay event, the various ways through which delay analysts determine the incidence and cause of delay, and the factors that dictate the strengths and weaknesses of any delay analysis methodology.

He will also provide worked examples of the most common forms of delay analysis, and provide some reflections on what approaches are most effective in a dispute resolution environment.

  • CIArb London Branch members are particularly welcome to join us at this event.
  • Members of other professional bodies are also welcome.
  • As usual, the meeting is free of charge and refreshments and sandwiches will be available on arrival.
