What is Extension of Time (EoT)?
Extension of Time (EOT) is a delay which could not be reasonably foreseen at the time of contract signing. The granting of an Extension of Time relieves the contractor from liability of damages such as Liquidated Damages from the original date of contract completion for the period of the claim.
Time extension requests are normally claimed due to the following circumstances:
- Client Change Order requests for New/Additional Work not included in the original contract documentation
- Latent Conditions – unknown conditions at the time of contract signing that affect the time for delivery of the contracted works
- Adverse weather conditions
The Contractor must demonstrate that the delay/s have occurred and impact the construction schedule affecting project completion date. That is the delay occurred/impacted the project Critical Path.
