GC21 Clause 64 - Early Use & Liquidated Damages

  • 1.  GC21 Clause 64 - Early Use & Liquidated Damages

    Posted 22 August 2018 19:41
    I'm am wondering if anyone has any experience with GC21 for road construction projects, specifically in respect to a contractor claiming a reduction in Liquidated Damages because traffic was utilising a partially constructed road.  We have a contractor claiming that this use of a partially completed road is "early use" under Clause 64, and thus are claiming a significant reduction in Liquidated Damages.

    Any feedback appreciated.
