how to avoid delays and dispute

Postby badzy » Thu Sep 04, 2008 11:10 am

late material and defective machinery. However, excusable delays are unexpected conditions that the contractors failed to comply. These delays happen when there are “delayed access to project site and late approval of project plan by the contractor.” Bad weather conditions can cause delays like floods, earthquake or storm. If these excusable delays happen, the owner should give extensions to finish the project.

However, if the delay is caused by both parties, the law states that it is not possible to clearly determine the time and expense attributable to either party.


If your project is delayed, you should re-examine and follow all the provisions of the contract documents regarding delays. If you wish to recover extra costs and not pay for liquidated damages, inform the owner as soon delay is surmised. Show necessary records and the causes of delay to the owner to avoid penalties.

I believe it would be more correct to say "ABNORMAL" bad weather conditions can lead to excusable delays. If it rains for five days straight and causes flooding of the project site, the flooding may not be an excusable delay to the builder's schedule IF it typically rains this time of year and normally leads to flooding of some sort in the area. Such a situation is thus considered a normal condition and should have been properly anticipated by the builder when he developed and agreed to his schedule. If, on the other hand, unusual or abnormal weather leads to flooding and delays the builder, and this type of weather is not typical every year, then the resulting delay to the builder should be excusable.

I think this all sounds a bit legalistic and theoretical. After all, this is Thailand. An "expected" delay is, for example, when the foremen has a hangover and doesn't show up. Or when 20 labourers suddenly disappear never to be seen again, because it's harvesting season. All delays in Thailand are excusable by definition. "Excusable" means that the foreman is capable of producing an excuse. :D
