The objectives of contracting parties are simple and clear. The owner anticipates a timely and quality performance and completion of the works and the contractor would be looking for the payment of a fair and reasonable sum of money in consideration of the works performed.
Whilst this objective can easily be listed down, in reality, it sometimes can be very difficult to achieve.
Given the nature of the contracts and the frequent changes in the owner requirements due to the time constraints in the preparation of tender documents, construction claims are unavoidable. Claims may include contractor claims such as extensions of time, prolongations, etc. or employer claims for liquidated damages.
