NEC ECC: Option B Remeasurable

Where a BQ includes a section for site staff and prelims would these be classified as works and become remeasured under CE 60.4 where the actual amount differs to those within the BQ?

Firstly the term ‘work’ is not defined and is different to ‘works’ which is an identified term.

The definition of ‘Provide the Works’ talks about ‘work’ and includes ‘all incidental work, services and actions’ so including ancillary and administrative tasks required to complete the works.

Note, however, the tests under clause 60.4 which need to be met for the matter to constitute a compensation event.
