Abstract: A construction company that was working on a military base on 9/11 found itself temporarily ordered off the base as a security measure. Later, it sought additional time to complete its work as well as delay damages under the Changes or Suspension of Work clauses in the contract. It was granted the extra time, but not the damages. This article illustrates why.
