Man: Hello，Frank Bauer speaking.
Woman: Hello this is Antonia Radford from Speedlink. I'm phoning about a problem with our extension project at the factory.
Man: Ah. I thought everything was on schedule.
Woman: So did I，until today. I called the site foreman because the air conditioning was due to be put in this week, but the subcontractors weren't there. They'd left a message that everything was on hold.
Man: What reason did they give?
Woman: I thought it'd be a transport delay because the system's coming from the States. Apparently though, there's a hold up at the supplier's end, a quality control issue at the plant, actually.
Man: I see.
Woman: Now, as you know, the rest of the construction work is more or less finished, but we can't start the assembly line until this system is operational for health and safety reasons. We were due to begin production next week.
Man： Right. That's why we drew up a contract that allowed you to claim compensation in these circumstances.
Woman： Absolutely. So could you please inform the building company we will be expecting that for each day's further delay.
