NEC3 ECC: Can holidays be added to programme?

Can the Contractor include an allowance for holidays in the latest programme if it there has been no allowance previously?

A Contractor can and should add any allowances for holidays or non-working windows. However, unless this is due to a compensation event (which is unlikely) this will only effect their planned Completion, not their Completion Date. It will be their liability therefore to reflect the true working calendars they intend to work to but equally their obligation to make that still fit within the Completion Date, otherwise they will be liable for Delay Damages if X7 has been included within the contract.
