Example text

2 Time at large 19 employer the right to ‘determine the contract at the end of’ the period as extended by the architect42. 2 Time at large In the absence of any agreed contractual mechanism for fixing a new date for completion, no such new date can be fixed and the contractor’s duty then will be to complete the works within a reasonable time43. Provided a contractor has not acted unreasonably or negligently, he will complete within a reasonable time despite a protracted delay if the delay is due to causes outside his control44.

Most delays are in fact consecutive. The test is to look at the critical path. Delays must generally be consecutive unless there are two or more critical paths. Several critical paths running in parallel is a common situation, but even in such cases, true concurrency is rare. Usually it can be seen that one delay occurs after the other. Therefore, before the question of concurrency arises at all, it must be established that there are two competing causes of delay operating at the same time and affecting the critical path or paths of the project.

The result is that the employer cannot give the contractor possession of section 3 on the due date. If no extension of time is due for section 1 and the cause of the delay is entirely the fault of the contractor, the architect may say that the contractor has himself to blame and cannot expect possession of section 3 on the due date. This approach is to misunderstand the situation entirely. The principles of causation must be applied. The cause of the delay to possession of section 3 is not the contractor’s delay to section 1, but the fact that the two sections are linked.
