Project Overview

Arbicon were instructed by a Main Contractor to assist them with a contractual Extension of Time claim relating to building works in London N1 following receipt of a non-completion notice.

The construction project had suffered several delays due to problems with the architectural and structural engineering design, and other direct contractors. 


Following several delays to the construction project, our Client was issued with a non-completion notice.

Problems with the architectural and structural engineering design had caused disruptions and delay to the contract, all of which was well documented. Further delays had been caused by contractors appointed directly by the Building Employer, as well as materials specified late with long lead times.

Accordingly, Arbicon reviewed the dispute and subsequently issued a letter requesting an extension of time, together with the withdrawal of the non-completion notice, and payment of our Client’s disruption claim. Our Client obtained the EOT and loss and expense due.

Arbicon Comment

“We were delighted to assist a Main Contractor with their contractual claim. It was clear that the delays were not down to them, and the issuing of the non-completion notice was very unfair. A letter from Arbicon explaining the facts, and request for an extension of time was all that was required to resolve this issue.”
