S. submitted a tender for a building envelope repair project for a “leaky condo”. It was the lowest bid, but S. provided a 60-day bid bond rather than a 90-day bid bond as required by the tender. Without considering the term of the bid bond, the strata corporation told S. that they would award it the contract. There was some negotiation over contract terms. The project did not go ahead as planned, however: the strata corporation fired its consultant and decided to wholly revise the remediation plans. The strata invited S. to tender on the revised project, but instead S. sued on the basis that the strata was in breach the Contract A in original tender.
