Document Type: Journal Paper


This paper is presented for suggesting the use of photography to gather valid information about time delays on a construction project, which always cause major expense in themselves, and if they are taken to litigation, even greater expense. One very expensive feature of this item is gathering of evidence to prove causes, extent, and result of delays. For gathering evidence which is accurate and true in its form, and which can be accomplished at a faster and more economical rate, the writer suggests photographic record be used. The use of record as an accepted industry practice and as a legally acceptable documentation tool needs to be justified as to cost.
