Construction delay claims are inevitable in most projects in the construction industry. It is rarely seen that a project completed without any adjustment on the completion time. Concurrent delay claims are the most disputed issue in the industry mainly because there is no uniform definition and lack of understanding on the concurrent delay itself. The objective of this research is to establish method of assessing concurrent delay which has been accepted and applicable in the court of law. The method of assessing extension of time which involves single event of delay are normally straight forward but when there are more than one causes of delay and often when one of the causes of delay are due to the contractor’s own fault and the other are a Relevant Event, the Extension of Time award are often disputed. This research is a critical analysis of selected journals which discussed issues of concurrent delay. Analysis has directed to the legal principles, approaches and method used in the practice and which have been tested in the court of law for assessing concurrent delay claims which is significant in assisting a contract administrator in evaluating concurrent delay claims in practice. The findings are expected to be useful as to encourage further references and studies. Further research in quantitative nature can be carried out in which case studies can be carried out in practice.
