Access to the site compound was not possible for one day due to a cordon put in place by works by Others. Access to the work site was available, but work could not be carried out as the plant and equipment was stored in the site compound.
The Employer for both this contract and Others contract is the same.
The Contractor has submitted a CE under 60.1 (2) stating that work could not be carried out for one day, as the site compound could not be accessed. The quotation includes (1) one day of Contractor and Supervisor site offices, (2) one day of time for all the plant and equipment that was in the yard (even if some of the plant was finished with as part of the project), (3) the workforce and (4) vehicles.
What can the Contractor reasonably claim for in these circumstances?
