The main Contractors PM has not advised us how to proceed. He has not supplied something he should have, and we have notified the EW stating we think this is a bona fida Compensation event under the contract. The PM has rejected it as a CE so where do we go from here to progress the works?
At this stage, based on what you have said, it appears that the Contractor’s PM has only commented against a notified early warning. Consequently you should notify a compensation event, which is a separate notification to an early warning. If the compensation event is not accepted by the Contractor’s PM, then you have the right to notify the matter as a formal dispute.
