Case law: 2000 to 2003

The project concerned the construction of a six-storey hospital, known as the National Heart and Chest Centre Phase 1, in Chelsea, London for the Royal Brompton Hospital (RBH) NHS Trust. Taylor Woodrow was the main contractor, and practical completion was certified as being achieved on 23 May 1990, some 43 weeks and two days later than the original completion date for the project. In total, the architect awarded an extension of time of 43 weeks and two days, thereby revising the date for completion to 23 May 1990.
