Council received a report of under-measurement of some items in the Bills of Quantities and additional works on the contract for the construction of Administrative Building for Farm Centre.
Council recalled that it had earlier approved the contract for the construction of Administrative Building for Farm Centre thus:
Contractor: Messrs Shegs Contracts Limited
Consultant: Messrs package Consultants
Council noted that the work had since commenced and appreciable progress made.
Council was informed that the major issues in contention were:
- Extra work in the foundation due to the topography of the site
- Error in the bills of quantities on windows and doors element
- Difference in concrete work items, particularly in reinforcement
Council was also informed that both the Consultant, the Physical Planning Unit of the University and the Contractor, after undertaking a joint site measurement of the contentious items agreed on some additional works.
Council noted that the cost of the under-measured items and the additional works had now revised the contract sum.
Council considered and approved the cost of under-measured items and additional works and thereby raising the contract sum for the construction of Administrative Building for Farm Centre.
