How to be describ in contract, not Limited to following?
is contractor is not entitled for variation ?

Thanks for the question.
Yes, BMS should be paid as a varied work if none of the documents specified as "Client's Brief", do not ask for BMS.
With regards to the limits of word "limit"; it should be the works specified either in Drawings or Specification or Bill. In addition to this the works must be handed over to the client as fit for purpose.
If you can provide me exact details of BMS system compared with item 6; I might be able to pin point what is included or excluded by the contractor.
