Balfour Beatty Building Ltd v Chestermount Properties Ltd: 1993

It was argued that the party seeking a referral to arbitration need only rely on the existence of relevant events for its entitlement to an extension of time and has no regard for any delay for which it may be culpable and which may impact at the same time as the relevant event.
Held: A limitation to be placed on the approach suggsted was that the net delay of the event should be added to the time for completion, rather than the gross delay including prior culpable delay.
