I am working on a road project to construct a new link road adjacent to an existing road. On site there is in excess of 1km of temporary (Heras) fencing along the length of the new road worksite. The contract is an Option B.
The Contractor is due prolongation costs from valid CEs that have caused delay to Completion. The have included the costs of the fencing as a separate item under Equipment. I believe that the principal function of this fencing is for site security and so may be covered in SSCC clause 41.
Would this fencing be included within the people overheads percentage under “security” in clause 41 or paid for under Equipment as a separate cost head?
