Under NEC3, our client has referred to an item in our Bill of quantities that has been priced at £6000 and he knows that only £1000 of this has been spent to date and no additional works are to be completed using this item. At this stage in the contract he is looking for any reduction in the prices.
He has asked us to ensure this is remeasured and raise this with our contractor.
Using this contract I was under the impression a change in quantity is not in itself a CE?
So in simple terms I’d like to understand the procedure I am to follow here?
(Also, our contract value is £2.1m so this item falls under the 0.5% stated in clause 60.4)
Any clarity would be much appreciated.
