Can the Contractor claim Loss of profit when the Employer terminates the contract 1 year before the Completion Date using R20 “for other reasons”?
No. If terminating for reason R20, the Contractor is paid amounts A1 and A2 where :
- A1 is (paraphrasing) for payments, in accordance with the contract, for work done to date and costs incurred in expectation of completing the works, and
- A2 is the forecast Defined Cost of removing any Equipment.
A4 is for lost margin - e.g. the tendered percentage for head office overheads and profit - but does not apply for reason R20.
