Is it correct to simply evaluate a new BQ Item (missed from the original BQ) on the basis of the Forecast Defined Cost of Undertaking the Works? There has been no change to the Works Information, just an error when the Employer prepared the BQ.
Would the situation be any different if for example the Employer had measured an item, but the wrong item, as the item did not accurately relate to the works in the Works Information? e.g. The Works Information requires Stainless Steel Lighting Columns, the BQ measures an item for galvanised steel columns. No change required to the Works Information. Would, in this situation it be correct to simply omit the original incorrect BQ Item and Insert a new one correct one, with the evaluation of the new item based on the Defined Cost of providing a stainless steel lighting column? Or would you in some way have to assess the Defined Cost of providing a galvanised steel lighting column and then work out the extra over cost of providing a stainless steel lighting column? If the latter, what would the new item in the BQ be described as? extra over for providing a stainless lamp column in lieu of a galvanised column?. Struggling to find any guidance on such an event and can see it coming up on a new project we have secured. Many Thanks
