Construction Law/items of work not in the BOQ

Dear Jonathan,

As you refer to Sub-Clause 4.11 as basis of the Engineer to argue and bring his defense against claim from Contractor, but I just noted that the last paragraph explicitly stating that:

"Unless otherwise stated in the Contract, the Accepted Contract Amount covers all the Contractor’s obligations under the Contract (including those under Provisional Sums, if any) and all things necessary for the proper execution and completion of the Works and the remedying of any defects."

So, the first sentence kills the discussion as it clearly stating "Unless otherwise stated in the Contract". And by the fact that it is stated in the LOA item 6 gives the Contractor the right to claim for any items (not only BMS) not included in the BOQ; then the net result that Sub-Clause 4.11 shall not be of significance to the Engineer to argue of his rejection to the Contractor claim.

Best regards,
