As a Contractor, we have caused a defect and have planned the works to go in and correct that defect. It is option A and we understand that is our risk/cost to correct that defect.
However, we followed the access procedure the Client required us to follow, and the Client prevented us from gaining access on the night due to emergency works elsewhere on the network. The Contractors cost for that lost shift is £3k, and we need to arrange another night to correct it. Is this recoverable as a compensation event? I understand the defect correction itself is not a CE, but the fact we lost an additional shift in doing it was not our fault and the Client could have avoided?
