I am currently working on an NEC 3 Option C contract.
The works information includes an appendix (Appendix 1/10) stating design elements, of the permanent works, that the contractor is required to undertake. Note - The appendix does not state how the contractor is supposed to design these elements.
In this instance, the Contractor is required to design an element of the permanent works but this element of the works has not been included in Appendix 1/10. However, the design of the “missing” element is clearly stated in other appendices in the works information.
Is this is an ambiguity/ inconsistency in the works information and thus a CE assessed under cl63.8?
Should the works information/ contract documents be considered as a whole, as the project manager has stated, and thus there is no entitlement to a change of the prices, etc as the cost of the design should be included in activity schedule.
