Delay to completion
The term ‘delay to completion’ can be used to mean either:
- Delay to the date that the contractor planned to complete its works,
- Delay to the contract completion date.
The Society of Construction Law Delay and Disruption Protocol, 2nd edition, February 2017, uses the expressions ‘employer delay to completion’ and ‘contractor delay to completion’, both of which mean delay to a contract completion date.
The term ‘delay to progress’ means a delay which will cause delay to the contractor’s progress but without causing a contract completion date to be missed. It is either an employer delay to progress or a contractor delay to progress.
