A fairly simple question I know but with people feeling understandably agitated by the loss of the £7 million that has reportedly already spent on the Turner Contemporary (TC) project – see lots of comments on this website – is there, I wonder any standard penalty cancellation clause built-in to the construction project that would favour the builders of the TC, such as Edmund Nuttall Ltd.
In other words, is cancelling this particular design for the TC, going to cost the taxpayer, directly or indirectly and if so, how much?
Does anyone know?
PS on another note, this site just rolled past 1,000 impressions in a day for the very first time with half as many again new visitors as repeat visitors. It's been touching 800 a day for over a week now and it's a shame that it took the Turner story to break the magic number.
