NEC ECC: Where would the compiler specify the Method of Measurement?

0 votes
In an ECC Form of Contract where would the compiler specify the Method of Measurement for the proposed Works?

I refer specifically to highway works for Local Authorities.

Here, there is an option to use a generic CESMM4 type measurement or a more bespoke Method of Measurement for Highway Works from the Manual of Contract Documents for Highway Works.

I've seen a small number of attempts to clarify this issue in Contracts (e.g. Z-Clause and Works information) but largely my experience is that contracts are silent on the issue.

I welcome any clarification you could suggest.

Assuming you are using either option B or D which are the Bill of Quantities options within ECC, then there is a space in contract data part 1 for you to state that within the option specific elements (page 69 NEC3 ECC).
