We are in a bespoke ECS contract. The project manager has specified a subcontract completion date and no sectional completion applies to the works. There has been a series of quoted events that have materialised in to instructed CE’s. Upon release of the CE’s, a new subcontract completion date is specified and additional key dates have been added. The key dates are not feasible and we EW’ed them to get it highlighted as we’ve faced some real supply chain pressure. The question I have is:
Can LD’s be applied to missing key dates? my understanding is they can’t and are only applicable from any delay to the subcontract completion date which we are confident we will achieve.
What is the worst penalty that could happen if we miss key dates?
