At any time prior to the 14th day after the expiration of the Defects Liability Period, the Superintendent may direct the Contractor to rectify any omission or defect in the work under the Contract existing at the Date of Practical Completion or which becomes apparent prior to the expiration of the Defects Liability Period.
As soon as possible after the Date of Practical Completion, the Contractor shall rectify any defects or omissions in the work under the Contract existing at Practical Completion.
The Contractor shall execute the Works to Practical Completion by the Date for Practical Completion or within any extended time agreed in writing by the Superintendent.
If the Contractor fails to complete the Works by the Date for Practical Completion together with any extensions of time granted by the Superintendent, the Contractor shall be liable to the Principal for liquidated damages in the amount stated in the Annexure for every day after that date until Practical Completion has been achieved or the Contract terminated, whichever is sooner.
Within fourteen (14) days of the receipt of such request, the Joint Venture shall issue to the Contractor the certificate of Practical Completion stating the date on which Practical Completion was achieved, or shall advise the Contractor in writing of the reasons for not issuing such certificate.
