In regards to an Option A Subcontract for electrical works, a subcontractor is claiming travel time to site (the working areas) and applying the hourly rate for an electrician to this time period.
45 minutes travel time to site
4 hours worked
45 minutes travel time from site
Total time claimed 5.5 hours
Is their travel time a recoverable cost? Or is it assumed to be included in their hourly rate? (note: there is an item in the SSCC that says ‘minimum call out charge 4 hours’.)
