JBCC May 2018 6th Edition: Clause 23.0 Guidelines on How to Administer Extension of Time for Practical Completion
Presenter: Professor Maritz
• Delays where the contractor is not at fault would normally constitute a valid claim for (EOT).
• Delays affects critical path of projects.
• Confirming a delay and/ or disruption is not an easy task: it is a time-consuming process, especially in multifaceted projects with thousands of activities, a lot of details, as well as the involvement of many stakeholders.
• It is important for clients, contractors, sub-contractors, and consultants to understand the fundamental requirements of compiling a successful EOT claim, and the adjudication of claims submitted.
• These training notes will provide those involved in the preparation and adjudication of EOT claims under the JBCC with some essential information to deal more productively with this complex matter.
• On larger projects, the magnitude of time-related costs can easily run into millions of rand. With so much at stake, it is understandable that delay claims are a major source of disputes in the construction industry.
• The proper assessment of delay claims is essential so that the parties can deal with it without having to resolve the dispute in expensive and drawn-out arbitration or litigation processes.
JBCC MAY 2018 6th Edition: Understanding The Roles of The Various Role Players Involved in The Building Contract with Emphasis on The Role of The Principal Agent
Presenter: Gerard Damstra
• The building contract involves a host of role players to establish a successful project – role players all have specific functions to be performed within specific boundaries, with specific powers entrusted to them.
• Role players must work together to ensure a successful project is completed within timeframes and with professionalism, integrity, honesty and moral standards.
• Some functions are regulated by contracts between role players, but others are governed by the standards laid down by society – the so-called boni mores of a community.
• Role players must be aware of the impact of their actions.
• It is imperative that all parties involved in a project have proper detailed knowledge of their respective roles, powers, duties, timelines and application of specialised professional contributions to the “team.”
• It is the function of the principal agent to bring all the aspects, required for a successful building project, together in a coordinated and orderly manner.
• The role of the principal agent therefore requires a proper understanding or else a project may fall apart to the detriment of all parties involved.
• If the role of the principal agent is not fully understood, chaos may be the result in which all parties suffer financial loss, impaired reputations and environmental damage.
