Hi. Thank you for your question. My name is Jo and I will try to help with this. Did the contract allow for potential overruns?
I am just in court so may not be able to repsond immediately but will get back to you as soon as I can
No the contract was for 34 weeks. There was no allowance for over running of time in fact it was expressed that the end date could not be moved. I am going into a meeting myself shortly so may not get back to you until later.
Some additional info , I never had to provide a breakdown of costs against supervision duties or access equipment to the main contractor. The costs were calculated by me for the duration of the project. I can forward you any documentation you want if that makes answering this question easier.

I'm just going to convert this to Q and A because I cannot see your responses.
No it did not say time is of the essence. Basically a program of works was issued with a completion date.The builder failed to comply with the program therefore falling behind.My works are totally dependent on the building works being carried out so that I can fit lights etc. I issued a weekly report to the company I am sub contracted to outlining where the project was falling behind etc.
