A construction claim will provide the reader with insight as to why claims are made by the house owner or the housing society against the contractor. The issue of claim stems from two parties due to holdup, changes, unexpected situations, delay in delivery of the unit, inadequate information provided by the contractor and conflicts between them.
The main reason for such claims lies in the fact that the general contractor, subcontractor or the builder do substandard construction work in comparison to the construction-industry standards and show incompetence in providing the basic requirements of the unit properly. Claims are also charged for the loss incurred by the owner, the unnecessary expenses, noncompletion of the project within the stipulated time and against damages if any.
This incident report tries to unravel the exact facts as to why construction defect litigation is taken up and how this is framed and what are the points that are to be kept in mind while framing one. As these claims are extremely expensive, the Calderon Process is tried first, to settle the matter amicably outside court before the litigation is filed. In this process the contractor is made aware of the defect/s by the owner/s and gives him a certain period of time as decided between the two interested parties so that the defect can be worked upon, repaired and fixed to the satisfaction of the owner/s.
When there is a delay in delivering a completed project within the stipulated time period to the owner, a claim is initiated in the process. Claims can be taken up by any party who is involved in the project. Here the claimant can ask for an extension of time, financial compensation or both in his claim. When a delay is the main reason for demanding the claim then it can fall under three different categories such as pardonable, unpardonable or coinciding. Here, in this example, the importance of CPM schedules have been discussed in detail and how the investigator counters these CPM schedules and establishes the actual facts that really are behind the delay. You can write complaint letters which can also act as a go-to guide for the same.
In this example, we find that one program has been established by the government for the benefit of the homeowners, which provides assistance to the claim applicant and provides an opportunity to appeal for his claim. Here we can see that three broad headings have been taken up by the homeowners first of which is a general program for submitting complaints which may include the closing of construction or activities being carried out during the construction. Secondly, the grievances related to the construction can also be submitted by the applicant against the contractor’s noncompliance with the standard of homebuilding. Thirdly, the applicant can claim warranties against the contractor if an item covered within the warranty period of one year made by the builder, is damaged within a timeframe after the inspection has been done by the builder.
This paper is based on the emphasis given to some specific areas which result in claim demands against an extended period of time taken to finish a project, by a builder, and how the claims are settled amicably through negotiation. This is one of the most common issues for claim demands as seen, after analyzing the data gathered through a form formatted for this purpose. This analysis is done on different construction projects implemented in the country of Oman. These claim demands also have a profound effect on delay in payment, time extension of the project and sometimes work suspension resulting in a huge loss incurred by the construction company.
A claim based on a dispute between the contractor and the owner has been made through a notice format, by the contractor, whereby a disagreement has been put forward by him and also by the subcontractors, on the monetary compensation of the claim. All the supporting documentation has been demanded in the process to establish the claim put forward by the owner. This example will help in constructing similar documents if one wants to put up a notice of dispute on a construction claim.
