The client`s consulting team should be invited to prepare a report on the contractor`s proposals for acceleration, including a risk assessment of issues that may impede the implementation of the revised programme. If this question remains open, the contractor and/or employer may try to reopen the issue of liability for delay at a later date and try to cover part of your own acceleration costs because you have not advanced your work regularly and conscientiously. At Streetwise, we are always looking for the solution to the problems of the sub-contractor specialist. These include subcontractor issues related to the acceleration of construction and engineering projects, as well as the assessment and payment of acceleration, in accordance with construction and engineering contracts and subcontracts. In general, it is the customer who needs the acceleration of the work. A client may require that a vessel be handed over earlier than stipulated in the contract, or, if additional time has been granted to the licensee, it may be necessary to complete it before the modified completion date. This is called directed acceleration. It is important that the parties review and agree on the method of payment. For example, an agreed fixed price may be divided by the expected acceleration period in order to obtain an average monthly fee. When submitting the tender to accelerate an agreed programme, the contractor shall clearly indicate the time actually saved through the implementation of the strategy and measures described in this proposal and the related costs, indicating the specific breakdown of costs; “Direct costs, damages and consequential charges, as well as a depreciation of the costs of establishing the offer”, is a prerequisite for the submission of the acceleration offer. The only way to claim damage to the acceleration is above all to delay the project in a denant way. What is a challengeable delay? An excused delay is a delay that was not foreseeable at the time of the conclusion of the contract and was caused by something that is not controlled by the contractor. All of this can include change of ownership orders, bad weather, natural disasters, or any other unpredictable and unforeseen event.
A constructive acceleration usually occurs, if the contractor is faced with a recusable delay, he requests an extension of the deadline. If this request for an extension is rejected and the contractor must instead accelerate the work to obtain the project schedule, the contractor has proceeded to a constructive acceleration. Constructive acceleration can take many forms, so let`s look at it a little deeper. If you are under contract, it is important to ensure that agreements are made between the contractor and the client in order to protect both parties and the integrity of the project. . . .
