We have notified the Client of a particular claim / delay with sufficient detail, and also suggested potentially mitigating measures etc. as required under the Contract (ie. within the time constraint requirement), we also subsequently provided an updated Programme detailing the impact of the delay, but we didn’t formally refer to the Clauses under which we are claiming, ie. we did not include text along the following lines “in accordance with Clause 20.1 of the Contract, we give notice that a delay event has occurred, and this may increase the Subcontract Price.
Similarly, in accordance with Clause 8.4 of the Contract, we give notice that we are entitled to an Extension of Time for Completion.”
Are the specific references to “Clause 20.1” and “Clause 8.4” required for our Claim/delay to be deemed valid under Fidic, or is it valid regardless of a reference to the specific Clauses?
