Contractor has submitted their first programme showing they will miss Key Dates and Completion.
I understand the remedies under X7 delay damages and 25.3 (recovery of direct costs for missing Key Dates).
Can the PM instruct the Contractor to work additional hours, state under 61.4 this is not a CE as it is due to the fault of the Contractor and therefore they are not to submit a quotation and cannot recover those costs. Or is that not the correct process to follow?
We don’t want this instruction to run the danger of being a change to the Scope and therefore a CE irrespective?
