Sample text

The judge approached the matter from a common sense perspective holding that: ᭹ ᭹ ᭹ the contractors were excused from performing the works within the original four and a half months, and there was nothing to indicate that they had agreed to any other timing obligation, and therefore, any timing obligation in the original contract must be taken to have broken down. e. the only obligation was to complete in a time reasonable in all the circumstances, and the employer was not entitled to recover anything in respect of liquidated and ascertained damages.

In the absence of a clear indication to the contrary, without some plain evidence on the subject, courts and arbitrators will be reluctant to write a timing obligation into the contract where none otherwise exists. Development of timing obligations – duties The situation described above is unsatisfactory. In all but the simplest contracts, timing is critical to both parties. Historically, as building contracts evolved, the obligation to carry out work was coupled to a fixed period within which the works were to be executed.

Should the contractor be obliged to make available the means he has used for updating the programme to demonstrate its accuracy? Applying the ordinary rules of contract interpretation, namely that of giving the words their ordinary everyday meaning in the unamended form of the contract, the answer to the first and last two questions appears to be ‘no’. Despite the complexity of the information to be provided, there is nothing to suggest that the programme can actually be relied upon in the same way as, say, the contract drawings.
