Most contracts require a contractor to submit a notice of its intention to claim for an entitlement to an extension of time and additional costs. Where a contractor fails to submit a contractually compliant notice the contractor may forfeit its entitlement.
From AED60Book now
The purpose of the event is to discuss how to identify and comply with a contractor's obligation for the giving of a notice with respect to its entitlement to an extension of time and additional costs under, and in accordance with, the contract.
In addition, the event will discuss how to identify, compile, collate and submit contemporaneous site records and documents in support of a contractor's claims for entitlement to an extension of time and additional costs. The discussion will also discuss the differences in legal jurisdictions with respect to the giving of a notice and how it may affect a contractor's claim.
