Example text

In some jurisdictions, the occurrence of concurrent excusable and nonexcusable delays results in the Contractor receiving a time extension but no additional compensation. Obviously, a carefully drafted Contract should address this potential occurrence. An example of the Contract addressing this issue can be seen in some Suspension of Work clauses within various Departments of Transportation. 6 These clauses provide for an equitable adjustment for suspended work only if there were no other causes of delay to the Project.

In those cases, the Project schedules either were not developed and maintained or the analyst might determine that the contemporaneous schedules did not accurately depict the plan to construct the Project and would not be a reliable tool to measure Project delay. When a contemporaneous schedule is not available to measure critical Project delays, the analyst should use an as-built analysis (discussed later in the book) to identify the critical delay, which is based on an as-built diagram. An as-built diagram is prepared using the Project’s contemporaneous documents.

The Contractor should further allow thirty calendar days for each resubmission of any rejected submission. Should any submission not be returned within the thirty calendar days specified, it is understood and agreed that the sole remedy to the Contractor is an extension of the contract time. For each day of delay in completion of the overall project caused by the late return of submissions, the Contractor shall be allowed one day additional to the time limitation specified in the Contract. No claim for any damages or any claim other than for extensions of time as herein provided shall be made or asserted against the Owner by reason of any delays caused by the reasons hereinabove mentioned.
