ECC option D: The Contractor submits a proposal for a Value Engineering (VE) and the Employer accepted the proposal but before the implementation of the VE there have been changes on the Main design due to Right of Way issue. The redesign cancels the accepted VE.
The contract includes amended clause Z2.7 that states “The proposal shall be prepared at the cost of the Contractor and shall include a quotation with details of his assessment and alterations to the Accepted Programme”
Given this situation;
- The cost incurred by the contractor on the accepted VE is not a Defined Cost?
- The cost of the VE proposal if not accepted, is not a Defined Cost?
