WEMBLEY STADIUM contractor Multiplex admitted this week that its construction programme had suffered further delays in February.
It said high winds last month meant that it was running behind on plans to reach practical completion of the project by 31 March.
Delays in February hit work to deprop the roof.
Removal of props makes way for completion of the pitch and lower tiers of seating (NCE 15/29 November).
Multiplex said it was still aiming for practical completion on 31 March.
In the meantime stadium client Wembley National Stadium Ltd (WNSL) has begun to identify snagging work that needs to be done on completed sections of the stadium.
A project source told NCE that so far no extra work had come up, but that additional work could surface.
Stadium contractor Multiplex announced last week that it faced losses of at least £116.4M based on completion in mid April.
It said it had already lost £106.3M on the project and would face liquidated damages of £138,000 a day for the first 84 days after the original 31 January completion deadline.
Including the two week long delay clocked up in February, the project is heading for a 73 day delay costing £10.1M in liquidated damages and putting Multiplex's final losses at £116.4M.
If the project runs even later, liquidated damages will fall to £13,800 per day after the 84th day. These will be capped at £14M.
