There. Im a building contractor and have signed JCT

Customer Question

Hello there.
Im a building contractor and have signed JCT building contract for 4 months with lad's £150 per day. there was contract administrator/architect. job was completed 4 months late and i was presented with a bill of round £18500. Along side the work contract there was extra work completed worth £30000 and i did not request extra time for it assuming there will be time added, etc. i have not been told of intentions of charges as i would have been acting differently. so i know i signed this, but it is complicated and what can be done? there was, for example, steel fabrication delay and we had to be off site for 6 weeks. everyone knew about it and client was notified for delay. Contract administrator defending client s he says i have not formally informed him. Thank you very much.
