Resource Highlight: MCAA’s Effects of Job Schedule Delays on Construction Costs

February 2, 2024

A study of mechanical and electrical projects conducted by MCAA and NECA showed that significant delays in construction and distortions in planned schedules cannot be anticipated in bids. When they occur, they have a devastating effect on construction costs, particularly labor. MCAA’s Effects of Job Schedule Delays on Construction Costs highlights the results of the study to help contractors understand the implications of project and schedule delay. It’s just one of MCAA’s educational resources that are free to MCAA members as a benefit of membership.

The bulletin explores:

  • The nature of disruptions
  • Causes and effects of delays
  • Anticipating delays in bids
  • Recovering overhead
