we have a NEC3 option A subcontract with amendments. In the contract data we have access dates which have a window. The subsequent key date is based upon X number of days from the access date given. In addition a programme is added within the WorksIinformation.
We have two questions:
Due to the windows in the access dates within the contract data, eg level 1 between 06/06/2018 – 06/09/2018; level 2 06/07/2018 -09/09/2018 it could result in the subcontract period extending by circa 3 months. For example we issue notifications of exact access dates to the subcontractor Level 1 06/06/2018, level 2 09/09/2018.
If this is the case would the s/c be entitled to additional prelims to cover the additional period within the access dates even though the duration of the works is the same as per the key dates being based upon X. no days from the access date?
If the programme in the works information within the subcontract conflicts with the access dates within the contract data, which takes precedent? Eg access date in contract data says level 1 between 06/06/2018 – 09/09/2018; however the programme says access date 02 February 2018?
