Thanks Glenn, just to clarify - Contractor contract has sectional compl. dates with Employer. I want to know can I claim back these damages/costs from subcontractor, and yes this subcontractors risk. subcontractors contract has 25.3 and x7.
25.3 - two bullet points states and this is also the SC view that I can claim any additional money for carrying out work or having to pay the employer or others in carrying out work only. therefore I can’t claim back the damages incurred from them under 25.3.
And if I can claim for additional cost incur as per 25.3 can I also claim for delay damages x7 as both these are the contract.
Note: NEC - A Commentary - key date - seems to imply that once you claimed under 25.3 you cant claim under any other damages clauses. " 25.3 replaces rather than stand alternative to any damages clause."
I appreciate your feedback.
