NEC3 - specified a starting date in Contract Data Part One, but this date was not met due to the time it took to award the contract A new starting date was agreed after award.
The appointed Contractor has now issued a letter/compensation event seeking costs as the original date was not met which has pushed the works into the time of year when ground conditions are worse which have caused problems, extra resources needed and overall delays. Is the contractor due anything?
Have a similar situation with ICC GI contract!
MUST a starting date be provided?
