The site is aimed at providing information about how to manage delay and disruption on construction projects, which is a key challenge facing construction planners and project managers, said Asta.
"A proactive approach by contractors and clients to resolving issues relating to delay and disruption as the project progresses, is preferable to projects going wrong and ending up in the courts," said Michael McCullen, managing director of Asta development.
The resource centre includes articles by industry experts that explain how planning techniques and construction project management tools can help manage delays more effectively.
Asta said the articles povided a useful introduction for newcomers to the subject as well as more in-depth material for more experienced planners.
Topics include the main types of delay and the role players responsible for those delays as well as comparisons between the main techniques for analysing delays.
Asta also provides free online resources relating to project portfolio management.
