This chapter contains sections titled:
Where a contractor/subcontractor submits a quotation for extra work which is accepted, is the accepted quotation deemed to include for any resultant delay costs?
Can a contractor/subcontractor be forced to carry out a variation after practical completion?
Where work is omitted from the contract by way of a variation, can a contractor or subcontractor claim for loss of profit?
Where work is omitted from a contract and given to another contractor to carry out, is there a liability for the employer to pay the contractor loss of profit?
Where, due to a variation, a contractor has to cancel an order for the supply of material, can he pass on to the employer a claim received from the supplier for loss of profit?
How are ‘fair’ rates defined?
When do quantum meruit claims arise and how should they be evaluated?
Can the issue of a variation to the work ever have the effect of creating a separate or replacement contract?
