NEC ECC - option B Spec vs BOQ

0 votes
The NBS architectural specification has a very short comment in it that we are to provide a certain element. However this is not measured in the BOQ and therefore not been priced.

The PM is adamant that as this was in the Works Information and we should have allowed for this and she will not issue a CE. Please advise my best course of action on this.

You need to refer to the Method of Measurement on which the BoQ was prepared (this should be stated in Contract Data Part 1) and check any Z clauses for any amendments.

If the Method requires the item of work to be separately identified (billed) then there is an error in the BoQ which the PM is obliged to correct under the provisions of clause 60.6 with such correction being a CE.
