The purpose behind the inclusion of extension of time clauses within building contracts is often misunderstood. Such clauses are usually included to support a provision allowing an employer to deduct liquidated damages and not those clauses allowing a contractor to recover loss and/or expense. Though there are exceptions to this general statement.
The intention is to look at the following:
• the principles underpinning extension of time clauses and their operation including:
• an examination of the provisions within SBC11 and how they are to be administered. This will include looking at contractor’s notices, events entitling a contractor to an extension of time and the approach and obligations placed upon the contract administrator when making a decision and undertaking a review;
• looking at the key differences between the provisions in SBC11 and those included within the IC11 and MW11 forms of contract; and
• a brief look at how delay is addressed in the NEC engineering and construction contract.
• the principles underpinning liquidated and ascertained damages clauses including:
• the calculation of the damages for inclusion within the contract;
• the procedure for deducting damages by the Employer and the role of the contract administrator; and
• examination of the express provisions within SBC11, IC11 and MW11.
