“If you’re going to spend somebody else’s money, you damn well better tell them.” (Anon. construction manager.)
Wenn man die Projektlaufzeiten früherer Großprojekte mit denen gerade aktuell laufender Großprojekte vergleicht, so stellt man fest, daß diese sich wesentlich reduziert, teilweise sogar halbiert haben. Dies wird zum einen dadurch erreicht, daß die Planung und die Ausführung nicht mehr, wie nach HOAI vorgesehen, nacheinander erfolgen, sondern unter dem Stichwort baugleitende Planung fließend ineinander übergehen.
Finally, notice provisions are designed to prevent the owner from paying for work not requested and allow the owner to participate in any remediation efforts.
Strict enforcement of notice provisions in construction contracts can be devastating to a contractor’s claims arising during construction. Owners and higher tier contractors routinely raise alleged failures of strict compliance with notice provisions in their attempts to defeat contractor claims which may otherwise have great merit.
When an issue arises that will adversely impact the project’s budget or schedule, most contract forms require the contractor to provide the owner notice of the issue and its expected impacts within a stated period of time. Depending on the facts and circumstances, failure to do so may result in the contractor waiving its right to additional compensation or time. That is exactly why a subcontractor’s $1,136,608 claim for delays, extra work, and the resulting need to accelerate its work was denied in Central States Mechanical v. Agra Ind., Inc. (D. Kan. 2012) 2012 WL 3896940.
