An example of this would be if the architect was late in delivering necessary drawing information to the contractor, but failed to give any extension of time. This is a clear case of the architect not taking advantage of the available mechanism.

If he fails to observe the timetable, his power to give an extension will end and time will become at large. It is often said that such time periods are not mandatory, but simply directory on the authority of the Court of Appeal in Temloc Ltd v.

Carslogie Steamship Co Ltd v. Royal Norwegian Government (The Carslogie) [1952] 1 All ER 20 at 24 per Viscount Jowitt. 4 Concurrency 27 A case dealing with the question of dominance is Galoo Ltd and Others v.
