If a Contractor has a programme based on a five day working week, and when a CE arises the Contractor proposes to work weekends to mitigate the delay. The client agrees to pay the change in costs in working the weekend. The Contractor submits a revised programme with a change in the Completion Date and has assessed the delay based on the weekend working effecting the Completion Date.
- Can the Contractor add the days that they are working weekends onto the Completion Date on the programme? i.e. if they work two weekends, they add four days onto the programme as float? So planned Completion would be the same but the Completion Date would change?
Or is the programme assessment based on that they have mitigated the delay and the planned Completion and Completion Date are assessed as not being changed by the CE, as the works did not effect the programme?
