Additional Material Storage Costs

Additional Material Storage costs are not limited to just critical project delays.  Similar to idle labor and equipment costs, additional material storage costs can also result from owner-caused inefficiency, disruptions, and suspensions.

For example, if the contractor is storing structural steel for the project and the start of steel erection was delayed a month, which was the owner’s responsibility, then the contractor may be entitled to recover the additional cost of storing that material for an additional month.
