In this, our Winter 2012 newsletter, our first article looks at a TeCSA case Roger Gibson was heavily involved in some 13 years ago.
In the ‘Royal Brompton’ case, He was the only Planning/Delay Analyst Expert who testified and was cross- examined in Court by four barristers; and he likes to think that HHJ Seymour, when deliberating his judgment, took on board his view that ‘a contractor is still entitled to an extension of time for an employer responsible delay even though he was in concurrent culpable delay’.

The article looks at this programme both from the Contractor’s and Contract Administrator’s perspective.
