As a the Employer, we are currently engaged in Contract which dictates if we cancel a contractor’s visit to site, then a percentage of their subcontractor’ fees become payable.
This is an additional compensation event which has been inserted in Contract Data Part 2.
Ie if we cancel within a 4 weeks 25% is payable, within 3 weeks 50% is payable, within 14 days is 80% and within 7 days 90%.
Following the recent bad weather in which we lost around 6 visits, we have incurred costs which have made completion of the project unattainable.
I have requested the contractor provide some sort of substantiation before we hand over hundreds of thousands for nothing, however they refuse and simply state that it is back and white in the contract.
