Featuring: James G. Zack, Jr., CFCC, FAACE, CCM, FRICS, PMP
Constructive acceleration is a well recognized claim in the United States.
The Federal Government’s Boards of Contract Appeals long ago created this claim
and established the basic rules of entitlement concerning this type of claim.
Thus, U.S. based contractors know what must be documented in order to recover in
such situations. But when U.S. contractors are working outside the U.S. and are
faced with this sort of situation, can they recover in arbitration or litigation
in other jurisdictions? This presentation examines constructive acceleration in
various legal jurisdictions (both common law and civil law) around the world to
determine whether a contractor is able to use this type of claim to recover
