Construction Claims

Ross-Clair v. Canada (Attorney General)

Standard contract between Public Works Canada and general contractor. General was claiming for extra work and delay. Owner claimed that GC 35.4 required general to give sufficient information for the owner’s engineer to determine whether the claim was justified and, since the general initially gave very little information, other than making a claim, its information was insufficient. The contract stated that the information had to be given within 30 days of the issue of a final certificate of completion and, since the full claim was not delivered until 15 months after that date, the claim was out of time.
