Curious to see what most people here would notify in this situation. For clarity, we are a subcontractor under an amended option A NEC contract.
There was some text in the subcon agreement works information stating the contractor was to provide clear, unhindered access with the perimeter to be backfilled to allow our plant to access the working areas. Upon a site visit, one of the elevations was not backfilled leading us to hire in scaffold platforms to span over the void so that workers could access the working area.
We put in the comp event notice and it was rejected on the basis of “subcontractor has not proven how the access requirements have changed from CA” to which we rejected given myself and the PM went to site, took photos and even discussed it in various meetings.
My question is, how would most of you notify this which is essentially the main C not providing something to us. There is a category in 60.1 for not providing something for a date shown on the accepted program? I notified it under a change to the works information given it said that access would be provided and as a result of our site visit, it wasn’t.
The matter has since been resolved and we are receiving payment.
Curious to see how others would notify and under what clauses.
