My colleague is working on an NEC3 programme of works, which has within it a number of individual projects. These projects do not have a specific contract assigned to them, but fall under the other-arching NEC3 (Option B) contract.
For “Project A” a clause 31 has been agreed. Since then, a number of delay events (both parties) have occurred. How do you assess delay to completion, when there are no key dates or contract dates are relevant. Do you treat the original “planned” date as the contract date, or is it the overall NEC3 contract date that’s to be used?
( not come across a case like this before, surely there should be key dates in the main contract!?)
