The Big Time Construction Company is erecting a large office tower for a major commercial property developer. In the course of construction, a dispute arises as to the timing of cash advances from the developer to finance the next stage of construction. The parties had executed a contract between them which stated that each cash advance from the developer would be provided to the builder after the work on the previous stage had been completed and inspected by the developer. The builder now says that the developer is delaying the inspections and that it cannot carry on to the next stage without the cash advance. The developer says that the builder is deliberately delaying the progress of the construction by not beginning the next stage while it waits for the inspection required to release the next cash advance. The developer intends to take legal action against the builder.
