The Contractor uses the latest accepted programme when assessing the effects of a compensation event (i.e. an underground obstruction is found) and this is based upon a 5 day working calendar. The compensation event delays the next activity on the critical path. The assessment of the delay is made retrospectively. The works relating to the CE take 10 working days to complete. Two of these days are worked over a weekend. There is no dispute over the number of working days necessary for the event, or that the entire period is critical.
How is planned Completion affected under the following circumstances:
(1) the Contractor continues to work a 5 day working week;
(2) after notifying the event the Contractor decides to work 7 days a week; or
(3) the Contractor prior to the event but after the latest accepted programme decides to work a 7 day working week.
