CAMBRIDGE, MA — Presented by the San Franscisco Bay Area and Southern California Sections of the AACE, the 2019 AACE Western Winter Workshop was March 21 – 24, 2019 at Harrah’s Lake Tahoe. The 58th annual Workshop included two and a half days of capital management and technical presentations showcasing the very latest in project controls tools and techniques. Further, the Workshop provided a unique opportunity to network with key decision makers for major capital project delivery organizations, owners, executives, managers, engineers and many other industry professionals.
The program for Saturday, March 23, 2019 included a presentation by technical speakers Nour Bouhou and Roger Nelson of the Spire Consulting Group on the topic of “Weather Delays: How Adverse Weather is Interpreted and Analyzed in the Construction Industry.” The presentation addressed the challenges and complexities of accounting for adverse weather in construction projects. Also, the presentation highlighted the topic of weather in both public and private contracts, industry standards for planning and accounting for weather, and the analysis of weather ex post facto.
“Encountering adverse weather on a construction project is no surprise and is even expected — why then is it so difficult for planners and forensic analysts to account for it? What seemed like a straightforward exercise often includes subtleties that introduce additional and unforeseen levels of complexity. This presentation will shed light on how public and private contracts define and address weather, industry standards for planning and accounting for weather, and the analysis of weather ex post facto. The presenters will include case studies and examples to illustrate how project planners and forensic analysts have accounted for weather impacts, both proactively and retrospectively.”
