Impartial opinion on Contractor’s entitlement to variations under the contract

Our Brief

The Contractor had submitted several high-value variations to the Engineer who had rejected them entirely. We were engaged by the Contractor to provide an impartial opinion on the Contractor’s entitlement and if it was considered that the variations were legitimate under the contract, we were engaged to prepare formal claims.

The Services

We prepared several variation claims in line with the contract requirements, to explain the entitlement of each variation. The claims included quantum calculations and substantiation of all matters.

The Benefit

Whilst the Engineer continued to reject the variations, our client was able to approach the Employer directly. With robust claims to support his case, he was able to negotiate an amicable settlement of all matters.
