2. How the parallel delays by the Employer be treated. for instance, since the commencement if the Employer fails to provide the design and also access to the site and gives design after 4 months and access to site after 6 months, which following scenario would be used for eot?

I can answer questions based on FIDIC 4 and FIDIC 1999 [design-build] with particular reference to time extension , price adjustment and disputes. I am in particular more inclined for response to points pertaining to how claims should be framed and put up in case of technical or other contractual shortcomings. Regarding procurement matters I have spent over 5 years as procurement specialist for highway authority and dealt with numerous claims and disputes in the capacity of "The Engineer" .
