I am working on an NEC 3 ECC Target cost project as Main Contractor.
It has come to light after contract award that the boundaries of the site, as defined in the Site Information, are insufficient to cover the extents of the works.
Whilst the project has planning and access rights to a larger area, the drawings shown in the Site Information in the contract adopt a smaller footprint . This problem means that the main Contractor no longer has the protection/ guidelines of the Geotechnical Baseline Report (GBR) are outside this contract boundary to undertake the works. This is important as Compensation events against the GBR are only applicable within the site boundary (as define in the Site Information).
All parties accept that the extent of boundaries are incorrect in the Site Information.
Importantly the NEC in principles does not allow for Site Information to be changed after contract award.
Any advice on changing the contractual boundary or a potential path of resolution would be appreciated.
