Contractor delay (sometimes referred to as culpable delay) is an expression commonly used to describe any delay caused by a Contractor Risk Event (an event or cause of delay or disruption which under the contract is at the risk and responsibility of the Contractor).
- Contractor Delay to Progress, which is a delay which will merely cause delay to the Contractor’s progress without causing a contract completion date not to be met.
- Contractor Delay to Completion, which is a delay which will cause a contract completion date not to be met.
It is sometimes referred to as non-excusable delay.
