Construction Law/Omissions clause in fidic red book 1999


Dear Sir

Recently we have completed bored cast in place piling contract. The actual pile lengths was less 10% than contracted. However it is not within the limits of Variation criteria which is 25% of rate and 1%of contract price and etc.Even though  we loose investment/fixed cost of piling machine and etc. due to this. Can we claim our loss as per omissions clause in fidic red book 1999?

Dear Senarath Bandara,

  You can not claim as it is not in the criteria of Variation described. However you may prepare a file showing your actual cost and request for compensation. It is decision of Employer to evaluate it or not.
