Construction Law/Clause 52.3 Power of Engineer to fix Rate

I will humbly disagree with the opinion of the Expert. The Post Bid negotiations and agreement was made part of the Contract and was placed on priority. This document is very much valid and cannot be rejected on the plea the Employer foresaw an increase in quantity. Both the Employer and the Contractor agreed on these terms as both were apprehending an increase in quantity. As this document is part of the Contract, therefore according to the Contract, the new agreed rate of 28000 will be applicable on any quantity in excess of the BOQ item ie 16.31.

Hope the question is answered.
