JCT: Conflict in the measurement of variations

0 votes
We have submitted our costs based upon the drawing that has been instructed, the Contractor is valuing the works, however, he is making no provisions for works required that are not shown on the drawing.  e.g. the drawing will show a straight section of pipe and not show any bends etc. that may be required to co-ordinate with the structure or other services.  When providing our assessment we have made due allowance for additional bends etc that we consider may be required, this is done at our risk if the costs are agreed at an early stage.  The Contractor is making his assessment based upon exactly what is shown on the drawing (a straight section of pipe).  Can we inform him that in lieu of a fair assessment made or acceptance of our submission that the variation costs will be subject to a site measure and the actual installation carried out.
