A Subcontractor has been instructed to accelerate to a revised Completion Date by their Contractor. The Subcontractor has responded to this instruction via a CE and a quote (impact programme with associated costs). The Subcontractor incorporated this acceleration in their following revised programme. This revised programme was accepted by the Contractor under 31.3, however the Contractor has not responded to the original impact programme which was submitted via a CE in response to the instruction to accelerate. The Subcontractor then provided the Contractor another quote in line with their accepted revised programme against the original instruction. 2 weeks after notification of the original quotation, under Clause 61.4 the Subcontractor raised a notification to remind the Contractor they were yet to provide their assessment of this CE. A following 3 weeks after this notification, the Subcontractor again notified the Contractor they were yet to respond to any of the quotations submitted for the acceleration.
Since it has been more than 3 weeks from when the Contractor has responded to the Subcontractors reminder notification (raised under 61.4) can it be argued that the original quotation submitted via a CE by the Subcontractor is now deemed accepted under Clause 62.6 or was this quotation superseded by the subsequent revised programme and quote?
