PC / Insurance for main works and outstanding works after PC
Sun Dec 2, 2012 3:07am
183.179.20.251

Dear KC,

If it is the case that:

The scope of the hoarding and foundation contractor is:

1. construction of the hoarding and foundation works; and
2. Provision of management service to the Site (about 3 months) before the Main Contractor comes in to take the possession of the Site.

PC cert. will be issued when the hoarding and foundation works completed.


Questions:

During the period of management of the Site by the hoarding and foundation contractor,
1. Is it that the hoarding and foundation contractor shall take full responsibility of the Site (i.e. possession of the Site) even after the PC cert. issued for the hoarding and foundation works? The Private Form of Contract means that after PC the Client shall take possession of the Site. Can I amend by SCC that after PC the Client will not take possession of the Site and the hoarding and foundation contractor retains the full responsibility of the Site?

2. If so, the hoarding and foundation contractor shall extend the CAR and Employee Insurance Policy to cover the management period so that the completed hoarding and foundation works (property) can then be covered by Section 1 of the CAR insurance.

Dear KC, please comment. Thank you.
