EXTENSIONS OF TIME The grounds for extension of the contract period vary little between the JCT 1981 and the BPF/ACA forms of contract, and so we shall consider the two forms side-by-side. Contractors should beware of deletions which employers are accustomed to make. Employers on the other hand should recognise that the more risk to the contractor in the contract, the more contingency, or greater profit, he will allow. These extra costs become compounded because, not only do the subcontractors weigh up the risk and include appropriate contingencies, but the contractor compounds it by adding a percentage to the costs, in addition to including his own contingency.

This does not mean that he is guaranteeing to achieve a desired result. For example, a doctor does not guarantee to cure a patient, even if he is curable; a defending barrister does not guarantee acquital for his innocent client. They do not even guarantee to perform to the standard of an average practitioner of their profession. Unless the professional has entered into a more onerous contract, he is only legally liable when things go wrong, not just if the standard of his service was below the average which may be expected from the profession, but is so far below that standard that it could be regarded as being 'abnormal' or negligent.
