NOTE:
WE WILL ALSO ENDEAVOUR TO MEASURE ADDITIONAL ITEMS THAT ARE NOT SHOWN ON
THE DRAWINGS/SPECIFICATION THAT WE FEEL MAY BE NECESSARY TO CONSTRUCT THE
WORKS. WE WILL INCLUDE IN THE BILLS A SERIES OF MEASUREMENT NOTES TO ASSIST THE
ESTIMATOR
IT IS ENCUMBENT ON THE ESTIMATOR TO ESTABLISH IF HE WISHES ADDITIONAL ITEMS TO
BE MEASURED AND INFORM US OF HIS REQUIREMENTS AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
THE FEE INCLUDES FOR A SINGLE PRINTED COPY AND SINGLE AGREED
ELECTRONIC FILE FORMAT
WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO CHARGE FOR ADDITIONAL COPIES OF THE BILLS OR
FOR BQ'S AND ELECTRONIC FILES IN DIFFERENT FORMATS OR SORTATIONS
THE ABOVE SCHEDULES HAVE NO IN BUILT ALLOWANCE FOR ADDITIONAL TIME FOR
ALTERATIONS TO THE MEASURED BILLS ISSUED
IF ANY OF THE ELEMENTS REQUIRE A REMEASURE BASED ON ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
ISSUED DURING THE MEASUREMENT OF THAT ELEMENT, OR AFTER THE ELEMENT HAS BEEN
ISSUED TO THE ESTIMATOR, THIS WILL BE CHARGED ON A DAY RATE OF 350/DAY
ANY ADDITIONAL REQUIREMENTS WILL BE CONFIRMED TO THE ESTIMATOR IN WRITING BY
FACSIMILE OR 'E' MAIL.
ALTHOUGH WE WILL MEASURE ITEMS THAT ARE SHOWN ON THE DRAWINGS
