We are the Contractor and have a Subcontractor under NEC3 ECC Option A Subcontract. We have delayed access by 3 weeks and the Subcontractor has provided a quotation for 3 weeks delay plus increased programme over winter as we have pushed them into winter working.
Correctly they have applied their people costs and equipment under people / equipment in the SSCC. However they have also added subsubcontractor people costs under people and then also subsubcontractor people / equipment costs in a separate subcontractor section and applied the subcontract fee %.
I’m a little confused as the Subcontractor should price the work as if they hadn’t Subcontracted which would mean everything would be included under the SSCC even Subsubcontracted people / equipment. Or should they put all subsubcontracted costs in the subcontract section and keep it separate from their people / equipment and apply the Subcontract fee?
They have also used BoQ rates for their Subsubcontractor, would you ask them to provide evidence of these rates?
