During the construction of George Brown’s single-family home, several events outside the contractor’s control gave rise to delay. Read the email from the contractor to the architect. Which of the following suggestions do you think is the most appropriate subject line?
|- "Nearly finished"|
|- "Request for extension of time"|
|- "Too many changes have caused delays"|
After reading the email, Tim phones Michael and leaves the following message.
Some of the words are missing though; choose the correct ones from a choice of three. Then listen to the message and check your results.
Michael , thank you for your request and informing me as early as you did. I’ve been quite aware of the difficulties you’ve had to cope with, particularly the tiler, who has simply not met our expectations.
I have spoken to George Brown; of course, he was not overly pleased, since they were hoping to start moving some furniture and garage stuff during the school half-term holiday at the beginning of November. Anyway, they’re handing over the keys for their house on 15 November, so there is a bit of spare time.
Nevertheless, I don’t want to get into a situation where the client is entitled to liquidated damages. So, I suggest we arrange the inspection for final acceptance for the 7 November. That gives you an extra week and the client sufficient time to move before the handover of their house.
Please let me know if there are any further difficulties. Hope to speak to you soon. Bye for now.
