Contractor is three months into a project where an Employer has missed out a large chunk of work in the B of Q. The Contractor has not priced for this as there was no where in the B of Q to do so, although there is little argument that the missing works were included on the drawings within the Works Information. I understand that generally it is intended errors in the B of Q generally lie with the Employer, but if this chunk of works is to be done:
- is this a compensation event (and if so what clause makes it a CE), and if so
- should they have allowed the time in the programme for complying with the Works Information in which case they will only get cost but not time?
