St. John’s International Airport
St. John’s, Newfoundland
The St. John’s International Airport Authority Inc. engaged multiple prime contractors in order to execute the work required for the Air Terminal Building Rehabilitation and Expansion at St. John’s International Airport in Newfoundland.
The contractor’s scope of work under the contract package covered the architectural interiors portion of the rehabilitation and expansion work.
The contract indicated that the contractor should achieve substantial completion within 62 weeks from the letter of award of the contract.
The project was executed using the multi-prime contracting method. Under this contracting method the Airport Authority had contracted directly with a number of specialty trade contractors. Each trade was responsible for the performance of a discrete portion of the work, known as a contract package; no single contractor was responsible for the entire contract.
Construction did not progress according to plan, primarily due to delays by other prime contractors whose work had to be completed in order for the contractor to proceed. In addition, the contractor was delayed due to late or incomplete answers dealing with incomplete design and/or unanticipated conditions encountered during the project.
Revay and Associates was mandated to perform a delay analysis in order to calculate the compensation due to the contractor.
