Hi, your question is not specific,
But for an explanation,
-Extra work is work arising outside of and independent of the contract, something not required in its performance.
-Additional work is required in the performance of the contract and without which it could not be carried out.
Assume one work is awarded to a contractor on item rate basis. During the execution of work, the necessity arises to do some works which are not given in the contract, but the contractor has been requested to carry out such works and payment will be made after supplemental rates and agreement are executed
This is extra. work
Example Providing stainless steel handrails instead of aluminum handrails
Here extra work is provision of stainless steel handrails
During the execution of foundation work, the quantity given in the agreement is exceeding due to actual type of soil
Here additional quantity of earthwork, filling, RR work will be coming which are needed
Usually in the agreement itself it will be mentioned that the rates are applicable up to 5% more or less besides quantity
Here the additional work comes.
Additional work and extra work with reference to what? In any construction contract?
Additional work means work done additionally to meet the scope of contract which may be due to fault of contractor or lack of some documents or due to contingencies.
Extrawork is due to change of design, as per the request of client/authorities
