Quantifying Damages for Delayed Completion: Singapore Appellate Division Weighs In

07 Mar 2023 CaseWatch

How should an employer go about quantifying its general damages for delayed completion of a construction development?

This question is particularly relevant in construction contracts with missing or unenforceable liquidated damages clauses, as only general damages may be claimed for delayed completion in such cases.

The decision of the Appellate Division of the Singapore High Court in Crescendas Bionics Pte Ltd v Jurong Primewide Pte Ltd and other appeals [2023] SGHC(A) 9 sheds some light on this question.
