Under the NEC3 ECS June 2005.
2 Subcontractor' main responsibilities;
Working with others 25;
Clause 25.3 refers to the Contractor's right to recover additional costs should the Subcontractor fail to meet a Key date set within the Subcontract. The last sentance within this clause states 'The Contractors right to recover the additional cost is his only right in these circumstances'. Is this effectively a time bar clause whereby if the Contractor does not assess within the period stated then he loses his right to recover the additional costs?
If the Contractor assesses the additional cost are the costs open to verification?
