Changed works-information has resulted in the omission of approximately 10% of the scope of piling works under an NEC3 Option B subcontract.
11.2(28) defines PWDD as the quantity of work which the subcontractor has completed multiplied by the rate. Each piled base in the bill has it’s own bill items and five piled bases have been omitted before the work on them commenced.
62.2 states that quotations comprise a change to the prices (delay will not be relevant due to omitted rather than additional work).
63.10 is Option B specific and allows the prices to be reduced and 63.13 of Option B requires assessment for changed prices to be in the form of changes to the bill, stating that the changes are changes to rates, quantities or lump sums. The Guidance Note for 63.13 states that the bill will require amendment in the form of deletion, addition or revision of quantities or items or rates and lump sums.
Based upon the above, once work is deleted by changed WI, the subcontractor will not complete the work, thus excluding it from inclusion in the PWDD and the bill is amended by deletion of the relevant bases pursuant to 63.13, how is the CE to be priced, or is that the conclusion of the process?
