The contract NEC4 Option A has been executed. No amendments, pure NEC.
The Completion Date is set, no change of specifications have been implemented, hence no CE’s to date.
Contractor issues first EWN that the lead in times for street lighting have increased and is beyond all parties influences. There is no alternative specification (street lighting) that can be used. Only one option.
This will delay completion by 4 weeks. We understand the tough circumstances at the minute due to all supply chain delays, however who is responsible for this? I feel this is not a relevant CE for the contractor, thus delay damages can be applied. However always best to collaborate to mitigate as best as possible, consider alternative specification.
