Our contract works has over run for no fault of our own which the client accepts as their fault. We had an element of works that should have been completed in mid may but requires a revisit in august to complete.
We’re in the process of pricing and agreeing the CE for re-visit. The CE is prelim heavy due to the nature of the works (night time working, cranes, access plant…). It has become apparent as we’ve worked through the main body of the works we’ve utilised all the prelim allowances within activity schedule (night time supervision, cranes, access platforms) as we underestimated the whole contract works
Client recognises there are remobilisation charges and there are requirements for additional supervision but are querying the cost for additional plant because we cannot demonstrate that certain items of prelims are associated to this task as we’ve claimed 100% against them in previous applications (We weren’t aware of this issue at the time of applications and overclaimed to help with cash flow because we utilised them).
Are we entitled to price the revisit with the full prelims requirements? We’re on option a scc
