Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Hi Ron,

As Mike says, it is all about paying according to actual quantities, as in many cases the actual vary from the estimated as in the BOQ plus or minus, and the difference is settleed by negative or positive change order.

Hi Ron

Remeasurement is where the quantities of the work at tender stage are deemede approximate and the actual volumes will be measured and paid as the work proceeds.

This is normally done by a qualified QS who will use the specified method of measurement.

Regarding the programme there is usually a clause that states the % increase or decrease that has to be absorbed before the programme can be adjusted.

In normal circumstances a change in quantities is not a variation.

Best regards
