otherwise specified in the General Requirements), Contractor shall submit to Engineer for timely
review:

1. a preliminary Progress Schedule indicating the times (numbers of days or dates) for starting
and completing the various stages of the Work, including any Milestones specified in the
Contract Documents;

2. a preliminary Schedule of Submittals; and

by all.

B. It is the intent of the Contract Documents to describe a functionally complete project (or part
thereof) to be constructed in accordance with the Contract Documents. Any labor,

Contract Documents or from prevailing custom or trade usage as being required to produce the
indicated result will be provided whether or not specifically called for, at no additional cost to
Owner.

C. Clarifications and interpretations of the Contract Documents shall be issued by Engineer as
provided in Article 9.

performance of the Work, Contractor discovers any conflict, error, ambiguity, or discrepancy
within the Contract Documents, or between the Contract Documents and (a) any applicable
Law or Regulation , (b) any standard, specification, manual, or code, or (c) any instruction of
any Supplier, then Contractor shall promptly report it to Engineer in writing. Contractor shall

Supplier (whether or not specifically incorporated by reference in the Contract
Documents); or

b. the provisions of any Laws or Regulations applicable to the performance of the Work
(unless such an interpretation of the provisions of the Contract Documents would result in
violation of such Law or Regulation).

3.04 Amending and Supplementing Contract Documents

A. The Contract Documents may be amended to provide for additions, deletions, and revisions in
the Work or to modify the terms and conditions thereof by either a Change Order or a Work

SUBMITTALS

PART 1–GENERAL

1.01 SUMMARY

A. Work Included:
1. Whenever possible throughout the Contract Documents, the minimum acceptable
quality of workmanship and materials has been defined either by manufacturer’s name
and catalog number or by reference to recognized industry standards.
2. To facilitate CONTRACTOR’s understanding of the design intent, procedures have
been established for advance submittal of design data and for its review or rejection
by ENGINEER.
3. The type of submittal requirements specified in this section include shop drawings,
product data, samples, and other miscellaneous work related submittals.

B. Related work described elsewhere: More detailed requirements for submittals are
described in other sections of these specifications for some materials and equipment. They
are to be considered additional requirements to supplement the requirements specified in

are submitted or a revised schedule for any remaining submittals is agreed to by OWNER
and ENGINEER. Except as noted, six copies of shop drawings and descriptive data shall
be submitted to ENGINEER for approval. Three copies of these will be returned to
CONTRACTOR if approved. If shop drawings are not approved or if they are stamped
“Approved as Noted-Resubmit,” two corrected copies will be returned to CONTRACTOR

stamped “Approved as Noted-Resubmit” and “Not Approved” and will continue this process
until shop drawings are stamped “Approved” or “Approved as Noted.” If drawings are
stamped “Approved as Noted-Resubmit,” fabrication may proceed in accordance with the
marked-up shop drawings. Installation shall not proceed until shop drawings have been
resubmitted and stamped “Approved” or “Approved as Noted.”

F. If shop drawings are stamped “Approved as Noted” or “Approved as Noted-Resubmit” and
CONTRACTOR does not agree with revisions or cannot conform with revisions, fabrication
shall not proceed and shop drawings shall be resubmitted with explanation of
CONTRACTOR’s position.

G. All shop drawings used for construction site activities shall bear the “Approved” or
“Approved as Noted” stamp of ENGINEER.

sewer will be measured for infiltration. Allowable infiltration shall not exceed 200 gallons/inch of pipe
diameter/mile/day for that portion of the Work under groundwater. If infiltration is exceeded, the leak or
leaks shall be located and repaired.
