The idea for the Society of Construction Law Delay and Disruption Protocol came at a talk given by me and Peter Johnson to the SCL in June 2000.  It seemed to us that certain issues came up time and time again in disputes about delay and disruption, and that it might be a good idea to commit to writing some suggested answers to those recurring questions.
