When compensation events occur how can the Contractor demonstrate additional defined cost for labor/plant/supervision?
During excavation works for a drainage run alongside a carriageway an uncharted cable has been discovered.
The additional work involved is to stop works in this area, trial pits to the surrounding, disconnection charges and testing from the electricity supplier.
What could the Contractor claim in this situation: additional plant and labor for the trial pits? How would this be demonstrated? Especially if on a forecast basis. Additional supervision for on site of the electrical supplier by an Engineer/Foreman even though the site has supervision across all sections all days.
The program has not been delayed by this event.
