On an NEC3 ECC Option A contract. Project has been certified as Complete and Taken Over. One month before the Defects Date.
Having afforded the C the necessary access to correct notified Defects we find ourself in a position where the Defect Correction Period has expired for many Defects and the C would rather debate validity and propose half baked corrections rather than do the work. Patience has expired with the user, E, myself as PM and the S, so the S has now written to the C to notify him of our intentions to have others correct the works and I will deduct from their account. What is the process of invoking clause 45? Do we need to do anything further?
Furthermore, the C seems ignorant to this notification and is still plodding along in the same manner. I presume that as the PM it would be beneficial to remind the C that they are not to proceed any further where it has been decided others will be appointed? And that they have now lost the opportunity.
