I’m working on an NEC4 Option B contract currently. Within the BoQ the preliminaries are set out with what it’s for e.g. Project Manager with then the number of weeks, the rate and the total.
During the interim application I have applied for every item in my prelims for the number of weeks we have been on site, so just drawing down on the total amount.
The client is measuring it against each person, and their start/end dates on the project.
I always thought preliminaries were more of a ‘lump’ item and they can only be changed via the CE mechanism?
Thanks in advance.
