GLOSSARY TERM  
  Concurrent Delay  
 
  DESCRIPTION  
  A delay to the progress of the Works under a construction contract which runs concurrently with another delay to the progress of the Works. For example, the Works may be simultaneously delayed by rain and an industry strike. A construction contract will generally prescribe whether or not, or to what extent, a Contractor is entitled to Extensions of Time where delays not entitling the Contractor to an Extension of Time are concurrent with delays for which the Contractor is entitled to an Extension of Time.
