NEC 3 Option A - Possible breach of Contract

NEC 3 (ECC) Option A (unamended contract)

Interested to hear views on this please:

The Employer decided the Contractor was at risk of falling behind the accepted Cl.32 programme, and likely to be late starting works on site. The Employer undertook some site enabling works (mainly site clearance) and after sent a PMI to descope this from the Contractors contracted works. Could this constitute a breach of contract by the Employer and trigger a CE - Cl.60.1.(18) ? No EWN or discussion was had prior to the Employer carrying out the works.
