The way I understand it is that the builder, after saying that they


...thought that they could get it built in the allotted time and allotted price, came to ECU and said that they didn't think that it could be done in that time period due to swiftly escalating costs of materials and labor and gave the option that if ECU were to extend it another 9 months that they could get it done and it would be considerably cheaper, which is about $51 million last I heard. The AD was not operating in a vacuum when he announced that it would be only 9 months, he was going by what everyone that should know were telling him. He is probably one of the worse AD we've had, and that is saying a lot, but that is not one of the things he is guilty of.
