Contract Option C - Target Cost
We (The Contractor) have requested the Subcontractor to work out of hours. With several trades in our properties during the week we have requested the carpet fitters to lay the carpets on the weekend for a few properties due to clashes with other trades. The carpet fitters (S/C) are therefore working 7 days a week to achieve original scope.
The weekend work would be a Compensation Event as is a change to the works information (which states the hours of work Mon-Fri 40hrs a week)
The question is how much the Target is increased by due to this Compensation Event. The S/C is looking to increase target by the hourly rate plus premium time. The Main Contractor argument is that the target should only be increased by the premium time due to actual scoped works being completed (i.e. the additional cost for working the weekend)
We are not looking to accelerate the contract as there will be no change in completion date. Overtime only due to clashes with other house building trades
