We have a scheme where restricted hrs 09:30 to 15:30 are enforced due to traffic sensitivity.
In assessing compensation events should the contractor be entitled to the full 9hr day for equipment of just the working window?
"Amounts for equipment which is in the published list stated in the Contact Data. These amounts are calculated by applying the percentage adjustment for the listed equipment stated in the Contract Data to the rates in the published list and by multiplying the resulting rate by the TIME FOR WHICH THE EQUIPMENT IS REQUIRED.
We interpret the time required as purely the operational time, what is your take on this?
