nonresponsive, unbalanced, obscure, or conditional Bids, or Bids which contain additions not
called for, erasures, alterations, or irregularities of any kind, or which do not comply with the
Instructions to Bidders. OWNER reserves the right to reject the Bid of any Bidder if OWNER
believes that it would not be in the best interest of the Project to make an award to that Bidder,

ability or fails to meet any other pertinent standard or criteria established by OWNER. OWNER
further reserves the right to reject the Bid of any Bidder whom it finds, after reasonable inquiry and
evaluation, to be nonresponsible.

19.02 More than one Bid for the same Work from an individual or entity under the same or
different names will not be considered. Reasonable grounds for believing that any Bidder has an
interest in more than one Bid for the Work may be cause for disqualification of that Bidder and the

prescribed requirements, and such alternatives, unit prices, and other data as may be requested in

qualifications and experience of Subcontractors, Suppliers, and other individuals or entities

OWNER also may consider the operating costs, maintenance requirements, performance data,
and guarantees of major items of materials and equipment proposed for incorporation in the work
when such data is required to be submitted prior to the Notice of Award.

19.05.1 OWNER may conduct such investigations as OWNER deems necessary to assist in the
evaluation of any Bid and to establish the responsibility, qualifications, and financial ability of
Bidders, proposed Subcontractors, Suppliers, individuals or entities to perform the Work in
accordance with the Contract Documents to OWNER’s satisfaction within the prescribed time.
Bidder shall furnish to OWNER all such information and data for this purpose as OWNER may
request. OWNER reserves the right to reject any Bid if the evidence submitted by, or investigation
of, such Bidder fails to satisfy OWNER that such Bidder is properly qualified to carry out the
obligations of the Contract Documents and to complete the work contemplated therein.

19.05.2 OWNER shall be satisfied that Bidder involved (1) maintains a permanent place of
business, (2) has adequate plant and equipment to do the work properly and expeditiously, (3) has
a suitable financial status to meet obligations incident to the work, (4) has appropriate technical
experience, and (5) can submit a satisfactory performance record.

with the lowest Bid whose evaluation by OWNER indicates to OWNER that the award will be in the
best interests of the Project.

19.07 If a Contract is to be awarded, OWNER will give the successful Bidder a Notice of Award
within 60 days after the time set for opening Bids.

by the required number of unsigned counterparts of the Agreement with all other Contract
Documents which are identified in the Agreement as attached thereto. Within 15 days thereafter,
Successful Bidder shall sign and deliver the required number of counterparts of the Agreement
and attached documents to ENGINEER with the required Bonds and insurances. Within 10 days

Article 4. CONTRACT TIMES

4.01 Time of the Essence

A. All time limits for Milestones, if any, Substantial Completion, and completion and

CONTRACTOR’s Applications for Payment as established at the preconstruction conference during

or corrected as shown on the tentative list of items to be completed or corrected attached
to the certificate of Substantial Completion.

Section 00600-1
1060.181/7-2010
Contractor and Surety, jointly and severally, bind themselves, their heirs, executors, administrators,
successors, and assigns to Owner for the performance of the Contract, which is incorporated herein by
reference.

1. If Contractor performs the Contract, Surety and Contractor have no obligation under this Bond,
except to participate in conferences as provided in Paragraph 2.1.

2. If there is no Owner Default, Surety’s obligation under this Bond shall arise after:
2.1 Owner has notified Contractor and Surety, at the addresses described in Paragraph 9 below,
that Owner is considering declaring a Contractor Default and has requested and attempted to
arrange a conference with Contractor and Surety to be held not later than 15 days after receipt
of such notice to discuss methods of performing the Contract. If Owner, Contractor, and Surety
agree, Contractor shall be allowed a reasonable time to perform the Contract, but such an
agreement shall not waive Owner’s right, if any, subsequently to declare a Contractor Default;
and
2.2 Owner has declared a Contractor Default and formally terminated Contractor’s right to
complete the Contract. Such Contractor Default shall not be declared earlier than 20 days after
Contractor and Surety have received notice as provided in Paragraph 2.1; and
2.3 Owner has agreed to pay the Balance of the Contract Price to:
1. Surety in accordance with the terms of the Contract; or
2. Another contractor selected pursuant to Paragraph 3.3 to perform the Contract.

3. When Owner has satisfied the conditions of Paragraph 2, Surety shall promptly, and at Surety’s
expense, take one of the following actions:

3.1 Arrange for Contractor, with consent of Owner, to perform and complete the Contract; or
3.2 Undertake to perform and complete the Contract itself, through its agents or through
independent contractors; or
3.3 Obtain bids or negotiated proposals from qualified contractors acceptable to Owner for a
contract for performance and completion of the Contract, arrange for a contract to be prepared
for execution by Owner and contractor selected with Owner’s concurrence, to be secured with
performance and payment bonds executed by a qualified surety equivalent to the bonds
issued on the Contract, and pay to Owner the amount of damages as described in Paragraph
5 in excess of the Balance of the Contract Price incurred by Owner resulting from Contractor
Default; or
3.4 Waive its right to perform and complete, arrange for completion, or obtain a new contractor,
and with reasonable promptness under the circumstances:
1. After investigation, determine the amount for which it may be liable to Owner and, as soon
as practicable after the amount is determined, tender payment therefor to Owner; or
2. Deny liability in whole or in part and notify Owner citing reasons therefor.

4. If Surety does not proceed as provided in Paragraph 3 with reasonable promptness, Surety shall be
deemed to be in default on this Bond 15 days after receipt of an additional written notice from Owner to
Surety demanding that Surety perform its obligations under this Bond, and Owner shall be entitled to
enforce any remedy available to Owner. If Surety proceeds as provided in Paragraph 3.4, and Owner
refuses the payment tendered or Surety has denied liability, in whole or in part, without further notice
Owner shall be entitled to enforce any remedy available to Owner.

5. After Owner has terminated Contractor’s right to complete the Contract, and if Surety elects to act
under Paragraph 3.1, 3.2, or 3.3 above, then the responsibilities of Surety to Owner shall not be greater
than those of Contractor under the Contract, and the responsibilities of Owner to Surety shall not be
greater than those of Owner under the Contract. To the limit of the amount of this Bond, but subject to
commitment by Owner of the Balance of the Contract Price to mitigation of costs and damages on the
Contract, Surety is obligated without duplication for:

Section 00600-2
1060.181/7-2010
5.1 The responsibilities of Contractor for correction of defective Work and completion of the
Contract;
5.2 Additional legal, design professional, and delay costs resulting from Contractor’s Default, and
resulting from the actions of or failure to act of Surety under Paragraph 3; and
5.3 Liquidated damages, or if no liquidated damages are specified in the Contract, actual
damages caused by delayed performance or non-performance of Contractor.

6. Surety shall not be liable to Owner or others for obligations of Contractor that are unrelated to the
Contract, and the Balance of the Contract Price shall not be reduced or set off on account of any such
unrelated obligations. No right of action shall accrue on this Bond to any person or entity other than
Owner or its heirs, executors, administrators, or successors.

7. Surety hereby waives notice of any change, including changes of time, to Contract or to related
subcontracts, purchase orders, and other obligations.

8. Any proceeding, legal or equitable, under this Bond may be instituted in any court of competent
jurisdiction in the location in which the Work or part of the Work is located, and shall be instituted within
two years after Contractor Default or within two years after Contractor ceased working or within two
years after Surety refuses or fails to perform its obligations under this Bond, whichever occurs first. If
the provisions of this paragraph are void or prohibited by law, the minimum period of limitation available
to sureties as a defense in the jurisdiction of the suit shall be applicable.

9. Notice to Surety, Owner, or Contractor shall be mailed or delivered to the address shown on the
signature page.

10. When this Bond has been furnished to comply with a statutory requirement in the location where the
Contract was to be performed, any provision in this Bond conflicting with said statutory requirement
shall be deemed deleted herefrom and provisions conforming to such statutory requirement shall be
deemed incorporated herein. The intent is that this Bond shall be construed as a statutory bond and not
as a common law bond.

11. Definitions.

11.1 Balance of the Contract Price: The total amount payable by Owner to Contractor under the
Contract after all proper adjustments have been made, including allowance to Contractor of
any amounts received or to be received by Owner in settlement of insurance or other Claims
for damages to which Contractor is entitled, reduced by all valid and proper payments made to
or on behalf of Contractor under the Contract.
11.2 Contract: The agreement between Owner and Contractor identified on the signature page,
including all Contract Documents and changes thereto.
11.3 Contractor Default: Failure of Contractor, which has neither been remedied nor waived, to
perform or otherwise to comply with the terms of the Contract.

Contractor as required by the Contract or to perform and complete or otherwise comply with

1. Contractor and Surety, jointly and severally, bind themselves, their heirs, executors, administrators,
successors, and assigns to Owner to pay for labor, materials, and equipment furnished by Claimants
for use in the performance of the Contract, which is incorporated herein by reference.
2. With respect to Owner, this obligation shall be null and void if Contractor:
Promptly makes payment, directly or indirectly, for all sums due Claimants, and
Defends, indemnifies, and holds harmless Owner from all claims, demands, liens, or suits alleging
non-payment by Contractor by any person or entity who furnished labor, materials, or
equipment for use in the performance of the Contract, provided Owner has promptly notified
Contractor and Surety (at the addresses described in Paragraph 12) of any claims, demands,
liens, or suits and tendered defense of such claims, demands, liens, or suits to Contractor and
Surety, and provided there is no Owner Default.
3. With respect to Claimants, this obligation shall be null and void if Contractor promptly makes

Surety (at the address described in Paragraph 12) and sent a copy, or notice thereof, to
Owner, stating that a claim is being made under this Bond and, with substantial accuracy, the
amount of the claim.

Claimants who do not have a direct contract with Contractor:


1. Have furnished written notice to Contractor and sent a copy, or notice thereof, to Owner,
within 90 days after having last performed labor or last furnished materials or equipment

name of the party to whom the materials or equipment were furnished or supplied, or for
whom the labor was done or performed; and
2. Have either received a rejection in whole or in part from Contractor, or not received within
30 days of furnishing the above notice any communication from Contractor by which
Contractor had indicated the claim will be paid directly or indirectly; and
3. Not having been paid within the above 30 days, have sent a written notice to Surety (at the
address described in Paragraph 12) and sent a copy, or notice thereof, to Owner, stating
that a claim is being made under this Bond and enclosing a copy of the previous written
notice furnished to Contractor.

be credited for any payments made in good faith by Surety.
8. Amounts owed by Owner to Contractor under the Contract shall be used for the performance of the

Paragraph 4.1 or Paragraph 4.2.3, or (2) on which the last labor or service was performed by anyone or
the last materials or equipment were furnished by anyone under the Contract, whichever of (1) or (2)
first occurs. If the provisions of this paragraph are void or prohibited by law, the minimum period of
limitation available to sureties as a defense in the jurisdiction of the suit shall be applicable.
12. Notice to Surety, Owner, or Contractor shall be mailed or delivered to the addresses shown on the
signature page. Actual receipt of notice by Surety, Owner, or Contractor, however accomplished, shall

Copyright © 2007 National Society of Professional Engineers for EJCDC. All rights reserved.
Page 7 of 62
Engineer responsibility for the Progress Schedule, for sequencing, scheduling, or progress of
the Work, nor interfere with or relieve Contractor from Contractor’s full responsibility
therefor.

2. Contractor’s Schedule of Submittals will be acceptable to Engineer if it provides a workable


arrangement for reviewing and processing the required submittals.

3. Contractor’s Schedule of Values will be acceptable to Engineer as to form and substance if it


provides a reasonable allocation of the Contract Price to component parts of the Work.

ARTICLE 3 – CONTRACT DOCUMENTS: INTENT, AMENDING, REUSE

3.01 Intent

A. The Contract Documents are complementary; what is required by one is as binding as if required
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,
documentation, services, materials, or equipment that reasonably may be inferred from the
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.

3.02 Reference Standards

A. Standards, Specifications, Codes, Laws, and Regulations

1. Reference to standards, specifications, manuals, or codes of any technical society,


organization, or association, or to Laws or Regulations, whether such reference be specific or
by implication, shall mean the standard, specification, manual, code, or Laws or Regulations
in effect at the time of opening of Bids (or on the Effective Date of the Agreement if there
were no Bids), except as may be otherwise specifically stated in the Contract Documents.

2. No provision of any such standard, specification, manual, or code, or any instruction of a


Supplier, shall be effective to change the duties or responsibilities of Owner, Contractor, or
Engineer, or any of their subcontractors, consultants, agents, or employees, from those set
forth in the Contract Documents. No such provision or instruction shall be effective to assign
to Owner, Engineer, or any of their officers, directors, members, partners, employees, agents,
consultants, or subcontractors, any duty or authority to supervise or direct the performance of
the Work or any duty or authority to undertake responsibility inconsistent with the provisions
of the Contract Documents.

which Contractor discovers, or has actual knowledge of, and shall obtain a written
interpretation or clarification from Engineer before proceeding with any Work affected
thereby.

2. Contractor’s Review of Contract Documents During Performance of Work: If, during the
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
not proceed with the Work affected thereby (except in an emergency as required by Paragraph
6.16.A) until an amendment or supplement to the Contract Documents has been issued by
one of the methods indicated in Paragraph 3.04.

3. Contractor shall not be liable to Owner or Engineer for failure to report any conflict, error,
ambiguity, or discrepancy in the Contract Documents unless Contractor had actual
knowledge thereof.

B. Resolving Discrepancies:

1. Except as may be otherwise specifically stated in the Contract Documents, the provisions of
the Contract Documents shall take precedence in resolving any conflict, error, ambiguity, or
discrepancy between the provisions of the Contract Documents and:

a. the provisions of any standard, specification, manual, or code, or the instruction of any
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
Change Directive.

B. The requirements of the Contract Documents may be supplemented, and minor variations and
deviations in the Work may be authorized, by one or more of the following ways:

EJCDC C-700 Standard General Conditions of the Construction Contract


Copyright © 2007 National Society of Professional Engineers for EJCDC. All rights reserved.
Page 9 of 62
1. A Field Order;

2. Engineer’s approval of a Shop Drawing or Sample (subject to the provisions of Paragraph

other documents (or copies of any thereof) prepared by or bearing the seal of Engineer or its
consultants, including electronic media editions; or

2. reuse any such Drawings, Specifications, other documents, or copies thereof on extensions of
the Project or any other project without written consent of Owner and Engineer and specific
written verification or adaptation by Engineer.

B. The prohibitions of this Paragraph 3.05 will survive final payment, or termination of the
Contract. Nothing herein shall preclude Contractor from retaining copies of the Contract
Documents for record purposes.

3.06 Electronic Data

A. Unless otherwise stated in the Supplementary Conditions, the data furnished by Owner or
Engineer to Contractor, or by Contractor to Owner or Engineer, that may be relied upon are
limited to the printed copies (also known as hard copies). Files in electronic media format of text,
data, graphics, or other types are furnished only for the convenience of the receiving party. Any
conclusion or information obtained or derived from such electronic files will be at the user’s sole
risk. If there is a discrepancy between the electronic files and the hard copies, the hard copies
govern.

B. Because data stored in electronic media format can deteriorate or be modified inadvertently or
otherwise without authorization of the data’s creator, the party receiving electronic files agrees
that it will perform acceptance tests or procedures within 60 days, after which the receiving party
shall be deemed to have accepted the data thus transferred. Any errors detected within the 60-day
acceptance period will be corrected by the transferring party.

C. When transferring documents in electronic media format, the transferring party makes no
representations as to long term compatibility, usability, or readability of documents resulting

4.03 Differing Subsurface or Physical Conditions

A. Notice: If Contractor believes that any subsurface or physical condition that is uncovered or
revealed either:

1. is of such a nature as to establish that any “technical data” on which Contractor is entitled to
rely as provided in Paragraph 4.02 is materially inaccurate; or

2. is of such a nature as to require a change in the Contract Documents; or

3. differs materially from that shown or indicated in the Contract Documents; or

4. is of an unusual nature, and differs materially from conditions ordinarily encountered and
generally recognized as inherent in work of the character provided for in the Contract
Documents;

then Contractor shall, promptly after becoming aware thereof and before further disturbing the
subsurface or physical conditions or performing any Work in connection therewith (except in an
emergency as required by Paragraph 6.16.A), notify Owner and Engineer in writing about such
condition. Contractor shall not further disturb such condition or perform any Work in connection
therewith (except as aforesaid) until receipt of written order to do so.

B. Engineer’s Review: After receipt of written notice as required by Paragraph 4.03.A, Engineer will
promptly review the pertinent condition, determine the necessity of Owner’s obtaining additional
exploration or tests with respect thereto, and advise Owner in writing (with a copy to Contractor)
of Engineer’s findings and conclusions.

C. Possible Price and Times Adjustments:

1. The Contract Price or the Contract Times, or both, will be equitably adjusted to the extent
that the existence of such differing subsurface or physical condition causes an increase or
decrease in Contractor’s cost of, or time required for, performance of the Work; subject,
however, to the following:

a. such condition must meet any one or more of the categories described in Paragraph
4.03.A; and

b. with respect to Work that is paid for on a unit price basis, any adjustment in Contract
Price will be subject to the provisions of Paragraphs 9.07 and 11.03.

2. Contractor shall not be entitled to any adjustment in the Contract Price or Contract Times if:

a. Contractor knew of the existence of such conditions at the time Contractor made a final
commitment to Owner with respect to Contract Price and Contract Times by the
submission of a Bid or becoming bound under a negotiated contract; or

b. the existence of such condition could reasonably have been discovered or revealed as a
result of any examination, investigation, exploration, test, or study of the Site and

Page 12 of 62
contiguous areas required by the Bidding Requirements or Contract Documents to be
conducted by or for Contractor prior to Contractor’s making such final commitment; or

c. Contractor failed to give the written notice as required by Paragraph 4.03.A.

3. If Owner and Contractor are unable to agree on entitlement to or on the amount or extent, if
any, of any adjustment in the Contract Price or Contract Times, or both, a Claim may be
made therefor as provided in Paragraph 10.05. However, neither Owner or Engineer, or any
of their officers, directors, members, partners, employees, agents, consultants, or
subcontractors shall be liable to Contractor for any claims, costs, losses, or damages
(including but not limited to all fees and charges of engineers, architects, attorneys, and other
professionals and all court or arbitration or other dispute resolution costs) sustained by
Contractor on or in connection with any other project or anticipated project.

4.04 Underground Facilities

A. Shown or Indicated: The information and data shown or indicated in the Contract Documents
with respect to existing Underground Facilities at or contiguous to the Site is based on
information and data furnished to Owner or Engineer by the owners of such Underground
Facilities, including Owner, or by others. Unless it is otherwise expressly provided in the
Supplementary Conditions:

1. Owner and Engineer shall not be responsible for the accuracy or completeness of any such
information or data provided by others; and

2. the cost of all of the following will be included in the Contract Price, and Contractor shall
have full responsibility for:

a. reviewing and checking all such information and data;

b. locating all Underground Facilities shown or indicated in the Contract Documents;

c. coordination of the Work with the owners of such Underground Facilities, including
Owner, during construction; and

d. the safety and protection of all such Underground Facilities and repairing any damage
thereto resulting from the Work.

B. Not Shown or Indicated:

1. If an Underground Facility is uncovered or revealed at or contiguous to the Site which was


not shown or indicated, or not shown or indicated with reasonable accuracy in the Contract
Documents, Contractor shall, promptly after becoming aware thereof and before further
disturbing conditions affected thereby or performing any Work in connection therewith
(except in an emergency as required by Paragraph 6.16.A), identify the owner of such
Underground Facility and give written notice to that owner and to Owner and Engineer.
Engineer will promptly review the Underground Facility and determine the extent, if any, to
which a change is required in the Contract Documents to reflect and document the
EJCDC C-700 Standard General Conditions of the Construction Contract
Copyright © 2007 National Society of Professional Engineers for EJCDC. All rights reserved.
Page 13 of 62
consequences of the existence or location of the Underground Facility. During such time,
Contractor shall be responsible for the safety and protection of such Underground Facility.

2. If Engineer concludes that a change in the Contract Documents is required, a Work Change
Directive or a Change Order will be issued to reflect and document such consequences. An
equitable adjustment shall be made in the Contract Price or Contract Times, or both, to the
extent that they are attributable to the existence or location of any Underground Facility that
was not shown or indicated or not shown or indicated with reasonable accuracy in the
Contract Documents and that Contractor did not know of and could not reasonably have been
expected to be aware of or to have anticipated. If Owner and Contractor are unable to agree
on entitlement to or on the amount or extent, if any, of any such adjustment in Contract Price
or Contract Times, Owner or Contractor may make a Claim therefor as provided in Paragraph
10.05.

4.05 Reference Points

A. Owner shall provide engineering surveys to establish reference points for construction which in
Engineer’s judgment are necessary to enable Contractor to proceed with the Work. Contractor
shall be responsible for laying out the Work, shall protect and preserve the established reference
points and property monuments, and shall make no changes or relocations without the prior
written approval of Owner. Contractor shall report to Engineer whenever any reference point or
property monument is lost or destroyed or requires relocation because of necessary changes in
grades or locations, and shall be responsible for the accurate replacement or relocation of such
reference points or property monuments by professionally qualified personnel.

4.06 Hazardous Environmental Condition at Site

A. Reports and Drawings: The Supplementary Conditions identify those reports and drawings
known to Owner relating to Hazardous Environmental Conditions that have been identified at the
Site.

B. Limited Reliance by Contractor on Technical Data Authorized: Contractor may rely upon the
accuracy of the “technical data” contained in such reports and drawings, but such reports and
drawings are not Contract Documents. Such “technical data” is identified in the Supplementary
Conditions. Except for such reliance on such “technical data,” Contractor may not rely upon or
make any claim against Owner or Engineer, or any of their officers, directors, members, partners,
employees, agents, consultants, or subcontractors with respect to:

1. the completeness of such reports and drawings for Contractor’s purposes, including, but not
limited to, any aspects of the means, methods, techniques, sequences and procedures of
construction to be employed by Contractor and safety precautions and programs incident
thereto; or

2. other data, interpretations, opinions and information contained in such reports or shown or
indicated in such drawings; or

3. any Contractor interpretation of or conclusion drawn from any “technical data” or any such
other data, interpretations, opinions or information.

Page 14 of 62
C. Contractor shall not be responsible for any Hazardous Environmental Condition uncovered or
revealed at the Site which was not shown or indicated in Drawings or Specifications or identified
in the Contract Documents to be within the scope of the Work. Contractor shall be responsible
for a Hazardous Environmental Condition created with any materials brought to the Site by
Contractor, Subcontractors, Suppliers, or anyone else for whom Contractor is responsible.

D. If Contractor encounters a Hazardous Environmental Condition or if Contractor or anyone for


whom Contractor is responsible creates a Hazardous Environmental Condition, Contractor shall
immediately: (i) secure or otherwise isolate such condition; (ii) stop all Work in connection with
such condition and in any area affected thereby (except in an emergency as required by Paragraph
6.16.A); and (iii) notify Owner and Engineer (and promptly thereafter confirm such notice in
writing). Owner shall promptly consult with Engineer concerning the necessity for Owner to
retain a qualified expert to evaluate such condition or take corrective action, if any. Promptly
after consulting with Engineer, Owner shall take such actions as are necessary to permit Owner to
timely obtain required permits and provide Contractor the written notice required by Paragraph
4.06.E.

E. Contractor shall not be required to resume Work in connection with such condition or in any
affected area until after Owner has obtained any required permits related thereto and delivered
written notice to Contractor: (i) specifying that such condition and any affected area is or has
been rendered safe for the resumption of Work; or (ii) specifying any special conditions under
which such Work may be resumed safely. If Owner and Contractor cannot agree as to entitlement
to or on the amount or extent, if any, of any adjustment in Contract Price or Contract Times, or
both, as a result of such Work stoppage or such special conditions under which Work is agreed to
be resumed by Contractor, either party may make a Claim therefor as provided in Paragraph
10.05.

F. If after receipt of such written notice Contractor does not agree to resume such Work based on a
reasonable belief it is unsafe, or does not agree to resume such Work under such special
conditions, then Owner may order the portion of the Work that is in the area affected by such
condition to be deleted from the Work. If Owner and Contractor cannot agree as to entitlement to
or on the amount or extent, if any, of an adjustment in Contract Price or Contract Times as a
result of deleting such portion of the Work, then either party may make a Claim therefor as
provided in Paragraph 10.05. Owner may have such deleted portion of the Work performed by
Owner’s own forces or others in accordance with Article 7.

G. To the fullest extent permitted by Laws and Regulations, Owner shall indemnify and hold
harmless Contractor, Subcontractors, and Engineer, and the officers, directors, members,
partners, employees, agents, consultants, and subcontractors of each and any of them from and
against all claims, costs, losses, and damages (including but not limited to all fees and charges of
engineers, architects, attorneys, and other professionals and all court or arbitration or other
dispute resolution costs) arising out of or relating to a Hazardous Environmental Condition,
provided that such Hazardous Environmental Condition: (i) was not shown or indicated in the
Drawings or Specifications or identified in the Contract Documents to be included within the
scope of the Work, and (ii) was not created by Contractor or by anyone for whom Contractor is
responsible. Nothing in this Paragraph 4.06.G shall obligate Owner to indemnify any individual
or entity from and against the consequences of that individual’s or entity’s own negligence.

H. To the fullest extent permitted by Laws and Regulations, Contractor shall indemnify and hold
harmless Owner and Engineer, and the officers, directors, members, partners, employees, agents,
consultants, and subcontractors of each and any of them from and against all claims, costs, losses,
and damages (including but not limited to all fees and charges of engineers, architects, attorneys,
and other professionals and all court or arbitration or other dispute resolution costs) arising out of
or relating to a Hazardous Environmental Condition created by Contractor or by anyone for
whom Contractor is responsible. Nothing in this Paragraph 4.06.H shall obligate Contractor to
indemnify any individual or entity from and against the consequences of that individual’s or
entity’s own negligence.

I. The provisions of Paragraphs 4.02, 4.03, and 4.04 do not apply to a Hazardous Environmental
Condition uncovered or revealed at the Site.

ARTICLE 5 – BONDS AND INSURANCE

5.01 Performance, Payment, and Other Bonds

A. Contractor shall furnish performance and payment bonds, each in an amount at least equal to the
Contract Price as security for the faithful performance and payment of all of Contractor’s
obligations under the Contract Documents. These bonds shall remain in effect until one year after

the agent or attorney-in-fact signed each bond.

C. If the surety on any bond furnished by Contractor is declared bankrupt or becomes insolvent or its
right to do business is terminated in any state where any part of the Project is located or it ceases
to meet the requirements of Paragraph 5.01.B, Contractor shall promptly notify Owner and
Engineer and shall, within 20 days after the event giving rise to such notification, provide another
bond and surety, both of which shall comply with the requirements of Paragraphs 5.01.B and
5.02.

5.02 Licensed Sureties and Insurers

A. All bonds and insurance required by the Contract Documents to be purchased and maintained by

such insurance.

D. Owner does not represent that insurance coverage and limits established in this Contract
necessarily will be adequate to protect Contractor.

E. The insurance and insurance limits required herein shall not be deemed as a limitation on
Contractor’s liability under the indemnities granted to Owner in the Contract Documents.

Contract Documents.

5.06 Property Insurance

A. Unless otherwise provided in the Supplementary Conditions, Owner shall purchase and maintain
property insurance upon the Work at the Site in the amount of the full replacement cost thereof
(subject to such deductible amounts as may be provided in the Supplementary Conditions or
required by Laws and Regulations). This insurance shall:

1. include the interests of Owner, Contractor, Subcontractors, and Engineer, and any other

such other insurance has been procured by Owner.

5.07 Waiver of Rights

A. Owner and Contractor intend that all policies purchased in accordance with Paragraph 5.06 will
protect Owner, Contractor, Subcontractors, and Engineer, and all other individuals or entities
identified in the Supplementary Conditions as loss payees (and the officers, directors, members,
partners, employees, agents, consultants, and subcontractors of each and any of them) in such
policies and will provide primary coverage for all losses and damages caused by the perils or
causes of loss covered thereby. All such policies shall contain provisions to the effect that in the
event of payment of any loss or damage the insurers will have no rights of recovery against any of
the insureds or loss payees thereunder. Owner and Contractor waive all rights against each other
and their respective officers, directors, members, partners, employees, agents, consultants and
subcontractors of each and any of them for all losses and damages caused by, arising out of or
resulting from any of the perils or causes of loss covered by such policies and any other property
insurance applicable to the Work; and, in addition, waive all such rights against Subcontractors
and Engineer, and all other individuals or entities identified in the Supplementary Conditions as
loss payees (and the officers, directors, members, partners, employees, agents, consultants, and
subcontractors of each and any of them) under such policies for losses and damages so caused.
None of the above waivers shall extend to the rights that any party making such waiver may have
to the proceeds of insurance held by Owner as trustee or otherwise payable under any policy so
issued.

B. Owner waives all rights against Contractor, Subcontractors, and Engineer, and the officers,
directors, members, partners, employees, agents, consultants and subcontractors of each and any

Page 20 of 62
1. loss due to business interruption, loss of use, or other consequential loss extending beyond
direct physical loss or damage to Owner’s property or the Work caused by, arising out of, or
resulting from fire or other perils whether or not insured by Owner; and

2. loss or damage to the completed Project or part thereof caused by, arising out of, or resulting
from fire or other insured peril or cause of loss covered by any property insurance maintained
on the completed Project or part thereof by Owner during partial utilization pursuant to
Paragraph 14.05, after Substantial Completion pursuant to Paragraph 14.04, or after final
payment pursuant to Paragraph 14.07.

C. Any insurance policy maintained by Owner covering any loss, damage or consequential loss
referred to in Paragraph 5.07.B shall contain provisions to the effect that in the event of payment
of any such loss, damage, or consequential loss, the insurers will have no rights of recovery
against Contractor, Subcontractors, or Engineer, and the officers, directors, members, partners,
employees, agents, consultants and subcontractors of each and any of them.

5.08 Receipt and Application of Insurance Proceeds

A. Any insured loss under the policies of insurance required by Paragraph 5.06 will be adjusted with
Owner and made payable to Owner as fiduciary for the loss payees, as their interests may appear,
subject to the requirements of any applicable mortgage clause and of Paragraph 5.08.B. Owner
shall deposit in a separate account any money so received and shall distribute it in accordance
with such agreement as the parties in interest may reach. If no other special agreement is reached,
the damaged Work shall be repaired or replaced, the moneys so received applied on account
thereof, and the Work and the cost thereof covered by an appropriate Change Order.

B. Owner as fiduciary shall have power to adjust and settle any loss with the insurers unless one of
the parties in interest shall object in writing within 15 days after the occurrence of loss to
Owner’s exercise of this power. If such objection be made, Owner as fiduciary shall make
settlement with the insurers in accordance with such agreement as the parties in interest may
reach. If no such agreement among the parties in interest is reached, Owner as fiduciary shall
adjust and settle the loss with the insurers and, if required in writing by any party in interest,
Owner as fiduciary shall give bond for the proper performance of such duties.

5.09 Acceptance of Bonds and Insurance; Option to Replace

A. If either Owner or Contractor has any objection to the coverage afforded by or other provisions of
the bonds or insurance required to be purchased and maintained by the other party in accordance
with Article 5 on the basis of non-conformance with the Contract Documents, the objecting party
shall so notify the other party in writing within 10 days after receipt of the certificates (or other
evidence requested) required by Paragraph 2.01.B. Owner and Contractor shall each provide to
the other such additional information in respect of insurance provided as the other may
reasonably request. If either party does not purchase or maintain all of the bonds and insurance
required of such party by the Contract Documents, such party shall notify the other party in
writing of such failure to purchase prior to the start of the Work, or of such failure to maintain
prior to any change in the required coverage. Without prejudice to any other right or remedy, the
other party may elect to obtain equivalent bonds or insurance to protect such other party’s

EJCDC C-700 Standard General Conditions of the Construction Contract

Page 21 of 62
interests at the expense of the party who was required to provide such coverage, and a Change
Order shall be issued to adjust the Contract Price accordingly.

5.10 Partial Utilization, Acknowledgment of Property Insurer

A. If Owner finds it necessary to occupy or use a portion or portions of the Work prior to Substantial
Completion of all the Work as provided in Paragraph 14.05, no such use or occupancy shall
commence before the insurers providing the property insurance pursuant to Paragraph 5.06 have
acknowledged notice thereof and in writing effected any changes in coverage necessitated
thereby. The insurers providing the property insurance shall consent by endorsement on the
policy or policies, but the property insurance shall not be canceled or permitted to lapse on
account of any such partial use or occupancy.

6.05 Substitutes and “Or-Equals”

A. Whenever an item of material or equipment is specified or described in the Contract Documents


by using the name of a proprietary item or the name of a particular Supplier, the specification or
description is intended to establish the type, function, appearance, and quality required. Unless
the specification or description contains or is followed by words reading that no like, equivalent,
or “or-equal” item or no substitution is permitted, other items of material or equipment or
material or equipment of other Suppliers may be submitted to Engineer for review under the
circumstances described below.

1. “Or-Equal” Items: If in Engineer’s sole discretion an item of material or equipment proposed


by Contractor is functionally equal to that named and sufficiently similar so that no change in
related Work will be required, it may be considered by Engineer as an “or-equal” item, in
which case review and approval of the proposed item may, in Engineer’s sole discretion, be
accomplished without compliance with some or all of the requirements for approval of
proposed substitute items. For the purposes of this Paragraph 6.05.A.1, a proposed item of
material or equipment will be considered functionally equal to an item so named if:

a. in the exercise of reasonable judgment Engineer determines that:

1) it is at least equal in materials of construction, quality, durability, appearance,


strength, and design characteristics;

EJCDC C-700 Standard General Conditions of the Construction Contract


Copyright © 2007 National Society of Professional Engineers for EJCDC. All rights reserved.
Page 23 of 62
2) it will reliably perform at least equally well the function and achieve the results
imposed by the design concept of the completed Project as a functioning whole; and

3) it has a proven record of performance and availability of responsive service.

b. Contractor certifies that, if approved and incorporated into the Work:

1) there will be no increase in cost to the Owner or increase in Contract Times; and

2) it will conform substantially to the detailed requirements of the item named in the
Contract Documents.

2. Substitute Items:

a. If in Engineer’s sole discretion an item of material or equipment proposed by Contractor


does not qualify as an “or-equal” item under Paragraph 6.05.A.1, it will be considered a
proposed substitute item.

b. Contractor shall submit sufficient information as provided below to allow Engineer to


determine if the item of material or equipment proposed is essentially equivalent to that
named and an acceptable substitute therefor. Requests for review of proposed substitute
items of material or equipment will not be accepted by Engineer from anyone other than
Contractor.

c. The requirements for review by Engineer will be as set forth in Paragraph 6.05.A.2.d, as
supplemented by the General Requirements, and as Engineer may decide is appropriate
under the circumstances.

d. Contractor shall make written application to Engineer for review of a proposed substitute
item of material or equipment that Contractor seeks to furnish or use. The application:

1) shall certify that the proposed substitute item will:

a) perform adequately the functions and achieve the results called for by the general
design,

b) be similar in substance to that specified, and

c) be suited to the same use as that specified;

2) will state:

a) the extent, if any, to which the use of the proposed substitute item will prejudice
Contractor’s achievement of Substantial Completion on time,

b) whether use of the proposed substitute item in the Work will require a change in
any of the Contract Documents (or in the provisions of any other direct contract
with Owner for other work on the Project) to adapt the design to the proposed
substitute item, and
EJCDC C-700 Standard General Conditions of the Construction Contract
Copyright © 2007 National Society of Professional Engineers for EJCDC. All rights reserved.
Page 24 of 62
c) whether incorporation or use of the proposed substitute item in connection with
the Work is subject to payment of any license fee or royalty;

3) will identify:

a) all variations of the proposed substitute item from that specified, and

b) available engineering, sales, maintenance, repair, and replacement services; and

4) shall contain an itemized estimate of all costs or credits that will result directly or
indirectly from use of such substitute item, including costs of redesign and claims of
other contractors affected by any resulting change.

B. Substitute Construction Methods or Procedures: If a specific means, method, technique,


sequence, or procedure of construction is expressly required by the Contract Documents,
Contractor may furnish or utilize a substitute means, method, technique, sequence, or procedure
of construction approved by Engineer. Contractor shall submit sufficient information to allow
Engineer, in Engineer’s sole discretion, to determine that the substitute proposed is equivalent to
that expressly called for by the Contract Documents. The requirements for review by Engineer
will be similar to those provided in Paragraph 6.05.A.2.

C. Engineer’s Evaluation: Engineer will be allowed a reasonable time within which to evaluate
each proposal or submittal made pursuant to Paragraphs 6.05.A and 6.05.B. Engineer may require
Contractor to furnish additional data about the proposed substitute item. Engineer will be the sole
judge of acceptability. No “or equal” or substitute will be ordered, installed or utilized until
Engineer’s review is complete, which will be evidenced by a Change Order in the case of a
substitute and an approved Shop Drawing for an “or equal.” Engineer will advise Contractor in
writing of any negative determination.

D. Special Guarantee: Owner may require Contractor to furnish at Contractor’s expense a special
performance guarantee or other surety with respect to any substitute.

E. Engineer’s Cost Reimbursement: Engineer will record Engineer’s costs in evaluating a substitute
proposed or submitted by Contractor pursuant to Paragraphs 6.05.A.2 and 6.05.B. Whether or not
Engineer approves a substitute so proposed or submitted by Contractor, Contractor shall
reimburse Owner for the reasonable charges of Engineer for evaluating each such proposed
substitute. Contractor shall also reimburse Owner for the reasonable charges of Engineer for
making changes in the Contract Documents (or in the provisions of any other direct contract with
Owner) resulting from the acceptance of each proposed substitute.

F. Contractor’s Expense: Contractor shall provide all data in support of any proposed substitute or
“or-equal” at Contractor’s expense.

6.06 Concerning Subcontractors, Suppliers, and Others

A. Contractor shall not employ any Subcontractor, Supplier, or other individual or entity (including
those acceptable to Owner as indicated in Paragraph 6.06.B), whether initially or as a
replacement, against whom Owner may have reasonable objection. Contractor shall not be
EJCDC C-700 Standard General Conditions of the Construction Contract
Copyright © 2007 National Society of Professional Engineers for EJCDC. All rights reserved.
Page 25 of 62
required to employ any Subcontractor, Supplier, or other individual or entity to furnish or
perform any of the Work against whom Contractor has reasonable objection.

B. If the Supplementary Conditions require the identity of certain Subcontractors, Suppliers, or other
individuals or entities to be submitted to Owner in advance for acceptance by Owner by a
specified date prior to the Effective Date of the Agreement, and if Contractor has submitted a list
thereof in accordance with the Supplementary Conditions, Owner’s acceptance (either in writing
or by failing to make written objection thereto by the date indicated for acceptance or objection in
the Bidding Documents or the Contract Documents) of any such Subcontractor, Supplier, or other
individual or entity so identified may be revoked on the basis of reasonable objection after due
investigation. Contractor shall submit an acceptable replacement for the rejected Subcontractor,
Supplier, or other individual or entity, and the Contract Price will be adjusted by the difference in
the cost occasioned by such replacement, and an appropriate Change Order will be issued. No
acceptance by Owner of any such Subcontractor, Supplier, or other individual or entity, whether
initially or as a replacement, shall constitute a waiver of any right of Owner or Engineer to reject
defective Work.

C. Contractor shall be fully responsible to Owner and Engineer for all acts and omissions of the
Subcontractors, Suppliers, and other individuals or entities performing or furnishing any of the
Work just as Contractor is responsible for Contractor’s own acts and omissions. Nothing in the
Contract Documents:

1. shall create for the benefit of any such Subcontractor, Supplier, or other individual or entity
any contractual relationship between Owner or Engineer and any such Subcontractor,
Supplier or other individual or entity; nor

2. shall create any obligation on the part of Owner or Engineer to pay or to see to the payment of
any moneys due any such Subcontractor, Supplier, or other individual or entity except as may
otherwise be required by Laws and Regulations.

D. Contractor shall be solely responsible for scheduling and coordinating the Work of
Subcontractors, Suppliers, and other individuals or entities performing or furnishing any of the
Work under a direct or indirect contract with Contractor.

E. Contractor shall require all Subcontractors, Suppliers, and such other individuals or entities
performing or furnishing any of the Work to communicate with Engineer through Contractor.

F. The divisions and sections of the Specifications and the identifications of any Drawings shall not
control Contractor in dividing the Work among Subcontractors or Suppliers or delineating the
Work to be performed by any specific trade.

G. All Work performed for Contractor by a Subcontractor or Supplier will be pursuant to an


appropriate agreement between Contractor and the Subcontractor or Supplier which specifically
binds the Subcontractor or Supplier to the applicable terms and conditions of the Contract
Documents for the benefit of Owner and Engineer. Whenever any such agreement is with a
Subcontractor or Supplier who is listed as a loss payee on the property insurance provided in
Paragraph 5.06, the agreement between the Contractor and the Subcontractor or Supplier will
contain provisions whereby the Subcontractor or Supplier waives all rights against Owner,
EJCDC C-700 Standard General Conditions of the Construction Contract
Copyright © 2007 National Society of Professional Engineers for EJCDC. All rights reserved.
Page 26 of 62
Contractor, Engineer, and all other individuals or entities identified in the Supplementary
Conditions to be listed as insureds or loss payees (and the officers, directors, members, partners,
employees, agents, consultants, and subcontractors of each and any of them) for all losses and
damages caused by, arising out of, relating to, or resulting from any of the perils or causes of loss
covered by such policies and any other property insurance applicable to the Work. If the insurers
on any such policies require separate waiver forms to be signed by any Subcontractor or Supplier,
Contractor will obtain the same.

6.07 Patent Fees and Royalties

A. Contractor shall pay all license fees and royalties and assume all costs incident to the use in the
performance of the Work or the incorporation in the Work of any invention, design, process,
product, or device which is the subject of patent rights or copyrights held by others. If a particular
invention, design, process, product, or device is specified in the Contract Documents for use in
the performance of the Work and if, to the actual knowledge of Owner or Engineer, its use is
subject to patent rights or copyrights calling for the payment of any license fee or royalty to
others, the existence of such rights shall be disclosed by Owner in the Contract Documents.

B. To the fullest extent permitted by Laws and Regulations, Owner shall indemnify and hold
harmless Contractor, and its officers, directors, members, partners, employees, agents,
consultants, and subcontractors from and against all claims, costs, losses, and damages (including
but not limited to all fees and charges of engineers, architects, attorneys, and other professionals,
and all court or arbitration or other dispute resolution costs) arising out of or relating to any
infringement of patent rights or copyrights incident to the use in the performance of the Work or
resulting from the incorporation in the Work of any invention, design, process, product, or device
specified in the Contract Documents, but not identified as being subject to payment of any license
fee or royalty to others required by patent rights or copyrights.

C. To the fullest extent permitted by Laws and Regulations, Contractor shall indemnify and hold
harmless Owner and Engineer, and the officers, directors, members, partners, employees, agents,

Regulations, Contractor shall bear all claims, costs, losses, and damages (including but not
limited to all fees and charges of engineers, architects, attorneys, and other professionals and all
court or arbitration or other dispute resolution costs) arising out of or relating to such Work.
However, it shall not be Contractor’s responsibility to make certain that the Specifications and
Drawings are in accordance with Laws and Regulations, but this shall not relieve Contractor of
Contractor’s obligations under Paragraph 3.03.

C. Changes in Laws or Regulations not known at the time of opening of Bids (or, on the Effective
Date of the Agreement if there were no Bids) having an effect on the cost or time of performance
of the Work shall be the subject of an adjustment in Contract Price or Contract Times. If Owner
and Contractor are unable to agree on entitlement to or on the amount or extent, if any, of any
such adjustment, a Claim may be made therefor as provided in Paragraph 10.05.

6.10 Taxes

A. Contractor shall pay all sales, consumer, use, and other similar taxes required to be paid by

all approved Shop Drawings will be available to Engineer for reference. Upon completion of the
Work, these record documents, Samples, and Shop Drawings will be delivered to Engineer for
Owner.

6.13 Safety and Protection

A. Contractor shall be solely responsible for initiating, maintaining and supervising all safety
precautions and programs in connection with the Work. Such responsibility does not relieve
Subcontractors of their responsibility for the safety of persons or property in the performance of
their work, nor for compliance with applicable safety Laws and Regulations. Contractor shall
take all necessary precautions for the safety of, and shall provide the necessary protection to
prevent damage, injury or loss to:

1. all persons on the Site or who may be affected by the Work;

2. all the Work and materials and equipment to be incorporated therein, whether in storage on or

required because of the action taken by Contractor in response to such an emergency, a Work
Change Directive or Change Order will be issued.

6.17 Shop Drawings and Samples

A. Contractor shall submit Shop Drawings and Samples to Engineer for review and approval in
accordance with the accepted Schedule of Submittals (as required by Paragraph 2.07). Each
submittal will be identified as Engineer may require.

1. Shop Drawings:

a. Submit number of copies specified in the General Requirements.

b. Data shown on the Shop Drawings will be complete with respect to quantities,
dimensions, specified performance and design criteria, materials, and similar data to show
Engineer the services, materials, and equipment Contractor proposes to provide and to
enable Engineer to review the information for the limited purposes required by Paragraph
6.17.D.

2. Samples:

a. Submit number of Samples specified in the Specifications.

b. Clearly identify each Sample as to material, Supplier, pertinent data such as catalog
numbers, the use for which intended and other data as Engineer may require to enable
Engineer to review the submittal for the limited purposes required by Paragraph 6.17.D.

Contractor’s obligations under the Contract Documents with respect to Contractor’s review
and approval of that submittal.

3. With each submittal, Contractor shall give Engineer specific written notice of any variations
that the Shop Drawing or Sample may have from the requirements of the Contract
Documents. This notice shall be both a written communication separate from the Shop
Drawings or Sample submittal; and, in addition, by a specific notation made on each Shop
Drawing or Sample submitted to Engineer for review and approval of each such variation.

D. Engineer’s Review:

1. Engineer will provide timely review of Shop Drawings and Samples in accordance with the
Schedule of Submittals acceptable to Engineer. Engineer’s review and approval will be only

the Work, conform to the information given in the Contract Documents and be compatible
with the design concept of the completed Project as a functioning whole as indicated by the
Contract Documents.

2. Engineer’s review and approval will not extend to means, methods, techniques, sequences, or
procedures of construction (except where a particular means, method, technique, sequence, or
procedure of construction is specifically and expressly called for by the Contract Documents)
or to safety precautions or programs incident thereto. The review and approval of a separate
item as such will not indicate approval of the assembly in which the item functions.

3. Engineer’s review and approval shall not relieve Contractor from responsibility for any
variation from the requirements of the Contract Documents unless Contractor has complied
with the requirements of Paragraph 6.17.C.3 and Engineer has given written approval of each
such variation by specific written notation thereof incorporated in or accompanying the Shop
Drawing or Sample. Engineer’s review and approval shall not relieve Contractor from
responsibility for complying with the requirements of Paragraph 6.17.C.1.

E. Resubmittal Procedures:

1. Contractor shall make corrections required by Engineer and shall return the required number
of corrected copies of Shop Drawings and submit, as required, new Samples for review and

responsible; or

2. normal wear and tear under normal usage.

C. Contractor’s obligation to perform and complete the Work in accordance with the Contract
Documents shall be absolute. None of the following will constitute an acceptance of Work that is
not in accordance with the Contract Documents or a release of Contractor’s obligation to perform
the Work in accordance with the Contract Documents:

1. observations by Engineer;

2. recommendation by Engineer or payment by Owner of any progress or final payment;

3. the issuance of a certificate of Substantial Completion by Engineer or any payment related

ARTICLE 7 – OTHER WORK AT THE SITE

7.01 Related Work at Site

A. Owner may perform other work related to the Project at the Site with Owner’s employees, or
through other direct contracts therefor, or have other work performed by utility owners. If such
other work is not noted in the Contract Documents, then:

1. written notice thereof will be given to Contractor prior to starting any such other work; and

2. if Owner and Contractor are unable to agree on entitlement to or on the amount or extent, if
any, of any adjustment in the Contract Price or Contract Times that should be allowed as a
result of such other work, a Claim may be made therefor as provided in Paragraph 10.05.

B. Contractor shall afford each other contractor who is a party to such a direct contract, each utility
owner, and Owner, if Owner is performing other work with Owner’s employees, proper and safe
access to the Site, provide a reasonable opportunity for the introduction and storage of materials
and equipment and the execution of such other work, and properly coordinate the Work with
theirs. Contractor shall do all cutting, fitting, and patching of the Work that may be required to
properly connect or otherwise make its several parts come together and properly integrate with
such other work. Contractor shall not endanger any work of others by cutting, excavating, or
otherwise altering such work; provided, however, that Contractor may cut or alter others' work
with the written consent of Engineer and the others whose work will be affected. The duties and
responsibilities of Contractor under this Paragraph are for the benefit of such utility owners and
other contractors to the extent that there are comparable provisions for the benefit of Contractor
in said direct contracts between Owner and such utility owners and other contractors.

C. If the proper execution or results of any part of Contractor’s Work depends upon work performed
by others under this Article 7, Contractor shall inspect such other work and promptly report to
Engineer in writing any delays, defects, or deficiencies in such other work that render it

a. the cash allowances include the cost to Contractor (less any applicable trade discounts) of
materials and equipment required by the allowances to be delivered at the Site, and all
applicable taxes; and

b. Contractor’s costs for unloading and handling on the Site, labor, installation, overhead,

2. there is no corresponding adjustment with respect to any other item of Work; and

3. Contractor believes that Contractor is entitled to an increase in Contract Price as a result of


having incurred additional expense or Owner believes that Owner is entitled to a decrease in
Contract Price and the parties are unable to agree as to the amount of any such increase or
decrease.

ARTICLE 12 – CHANGE OF CONTRACT PRICE; CHANGE OF CONTRACT TIMES

12.01 Change of Contract Price

A. The Contract Price may only be changed by a Change Order. Any Claim for an adjustment in the
Contract Price shall be based on written notice submitted by the party making the Claim to the

Page 46 of 62
C. Contractor’s Fee: The Contractor’s fee for overhead and profit shall be determined as follows:

be 15 percent;

b. for costs incurred under Paragraph 11.01.A.3, the Contractor’s fee shall be five percent;

c. where one or more tiers of subcontracts are on the basis of Cost of the Work plus a fee
and no fixed fee is agreed upon, the intent of Paragraphs 12.01.C.2.a and 12.01.C.2.b is
that the Subcontractor who actually performs the Work, at whatever tier, will be paid a
fee of 15 percent of the costs incurred by such Subcontractor under Paragraphs 11.01.A.1
and 11.01.A.2 and that any higher tier Subcontractor and Contractor will each be paid a
fee of five percent of the amount paid to the next lower tier Subcontractor;

d. no fee shall be payable on the basis of costs itemized under Paragraphs 11.01.A.4,
11.01.A.5, and 11.01.B;

e. the amount of credit to be allowed by Contractor to Owner for any change which results
in a net decrease in cost will be the amount of the actual net decrease in cost plus a
deduction in Contractor’s fee by an amount equal to five percent of such net decrease;
and

f. when both additions and credits are involved in any one change, the adjustment in
Contractor’s fee shall be computed on the basis of the net change in accordance with
Paragraphs 12.01.C.2.a through 12.01.C.2.e, inclusive.

12.02 Change of Contract Times

A. The Contract Times may only be changed by a Change Order. Any Claim for an adjustment in

12.03 Delays

A. Where Contractor is prevented from completing any part of the Work within the Contract Times
due to delay beyond the control of Contractor, the Contract Times will be extended in an amount
equal to the time lost due to such delay if a Claim is made therefor as provided in Paragraph
12.02.A. Delays beyond the control of Contractor shall include, but not be limited to, acts or

Page 47 of 62
neglect by Owner, acts or neglect of utility owners or other contractors performing other work as
contemplated by Article 7, fires, floods, epidemics, abnormal weather conditions, or acts of God.

B. If Owner, Engineer, or other contractors or utility owners performing other work for Owner as
contemplated by Article 7, or anyone for whom Owner is responsible, delays, disrupts, or
interferes with the performance or progress of the Work, then Contractor shall be entitled to an
equitable adjustment in the Contract Price or the Contract Times, or both. Contractor’s
entitlement to an adjustment of the Contract Times is conditioned on such adjustment being
essential to Contractor’s ability to complete the Work within the Contract Times.

C. If Contractor is delayed in the performance or progress of the Work by fire, flood, epidemic,
abnormal weather conditions, acts of God, acts or failures to act of utility owners not under the
control of Owner, or other causes not the fault of and beyond control of Owner and Contractor,
then Contractor shall be entitled to an equitable adjustment in Contract Times, if such adjustment
is essential to Contractor’s ability to complete the Work within the Contract Times. Such an
adjustment shall be Contractor’s sole and exclusive remedy for the delays described in this
Paragraph 12.03.C.

D. Owner, Engineer, and their officers, directors, members, partners, employees, agents, consultants,
or subcontractors shall not be liable to Contractor for any claims, costs, losses, or damages
(including but not limited to all fees and charges of engineers, architects, attorneys, and other
professionals and all court or arbitration or other dispute resolution costs) sustained by Contractor
on or in connection with any other project or anticipated project.

E. Contractor shall not be entitled to an adjustment in Contract Price or Contract Times for delays
within the control of Contractor. Delays attributable to and within the control of a Subcontractor
or Supplier shall be deemed to be delays within the control of Contractor.

ARTICLE 13 – TESTS AND INSPECTIONS; CORRECTION, REMOVAL OR ACCEPTANCE OF


DEFECTIVE WORK

13.01 Notice of Defects

A. Prompt notice of all defective Work of which Owner or Engineer has actual knowledge will be
given to Contractor. Defective Work may be rejected, corrected, or accepted as provided in this
Article 13.

13.02 Access to Work

A. Owner, Engineer, their consultants and other representatives and personnel of Owner,
independent testing laboratories, and governmental agencies with jurisdictional interests will
have access to the Site and the Work at reasonable times for their observation, inspection, and
testing. Contractor shall provide them proper and safe conditions for such access and advise them
of Contractor’s safety procedures and programs so that they may comply therewith as applicable.

Page 48 of 62
13.03 Tests and Inspections

A. Contractor shall give Engineer timely notice of readiness of the Work for all required inspections,
tests, or approvals and shall cooperate with inspection and testing personnel to facilitate required
inspections or tests.

B. Owner shall employ and pay for the services of an independent testing laboratory to perform all
inspections, tests, or approvals required by the Contract Documents except:

1. for inspections, tests, or approvals covered by Paragraphs 13.03.C and 13.03.D below;

2. that costs incurred in connection with tests or inspections conducted pursuant to Paragraph
13.04.B shall be paid as provided in Paragraph 13.04.C; and

3. as otherwise specifically provided in the Contract Documents.

C. If Laws or Regulations of any public body having jurisdiction require any Work (or part thereof)
specifically to be inspected, tested, or approved by an employee or other representative of such
public body, Contractor shall assume full responsibility for arranging and obtaining such
inspections, tests, or approvals, pay all costs in connection therewith, and furnish Engineer the
required certificates of inspection or approval.

D. Contractor shall be responsible for arranging and obtaining and shall pay all costs in connection
with any inspections, tests, or approvals required for Owner’s and Engineer’s acceptance of
materials or equipment to be incorporated in the Work; or acceptance of materials, mix designs,
or equipment submitted for approval prior to Contractor’s purchase thereof for incorporation in
the Work. Such inspections, tests, or approvals shall be performed by organizations acceptable to
Owner and Engineer.

E. If any Work (or the work of others) that is to be inspected, tested, or approved is covered by
Contractor without written concurrence of Engineer, Contractor shall, if requested by Engineer,
uncover such Work for observation.

F. Uncovering Work as provided in Paragraph 13.03.E shall be at Contractor’s expense unless


Contractor has given Engineer timely notice of Contractor’s intention to cover the same and
Engineer has not acted with reasonable promptness in response to such notice.

13.04 Uncovering Work

A. If any Work is covered contrary to the written request of Engineer, it must, if requested by
Engineer, be uncovered for Engineer’s observation and replaced at Contractor’s expense.

B. If Engineer considers it necessary or advisable that covered Work be observed by Engineer or


inspected or tested by others, Contractor, at Engineer’s request, shall uncover, expose, or
otherwise make available for observation, inspection, or testing as Engineer may require, that
portion of the Work in question, furnishing all necessary labor, material, and equipment.

EJCDC C-700 Standard General Conditions of the Construction Contract


Copyright © 2007 National Society of Professional Engineers for EJCDC. All rights reserved.
Page 49 of 62
C. If it is found that the uncovered Work is defective, Contractor shall pay all claims, costs, losses,
and damages (including but not limited to all fees and charges of engineers, architects, attorneys,
and other professionals and all court or arbitration or other dispute resolution costs) arising out of
or relating to such uncovering, exposure, observation, inspection, and testing, and of satisfactory
replacement or reconstruction (including but not limited to all costs of repair or replacement of
work of others); and Owner shall be entitled to an appropriate decrease in the Contract Price. If
the parties are unable to agree as to the amount thereof, Owner may make a Claim therefor as
provided in Paragraph 10.05.

D. If the uncovered Work is not found to be defective, Contractor shall be allowed an increase in the
Contract Price or an extension of the Contract Times, or both, directly attributable to such
uncovering, exposure, observation, inspection, testing, replacement, and reconstruction. If the
parties are unable to agree as to the amount or extent thereof, Contractor may make a Claim
therefor as provided in Paragraph 10.05.

13.05 Owner May Stop the Work

A. If the Work is defective, or Contractor fails to supply sufficient skilled workers or suitable
materials or equipment, or fails to perform the Work in such a way that the completed Work will
conform to the Contract Documents, Owner may order Contractor to stop the Work, or any
portion thereof, until the cause for such order has been eliminated; however, this right of Owner
to stop the Work shall not give rise to any duty on the part of Owner to exercise this right for the
benefit of Contractor, any Subcontractor, any Supplier, any other individual or entity, or any
surety for, or employee or agent of any of them.

13.06 Correction or Removal of Defective Work

A. Promptly after receipt of written notice, Contractor shall correct all defective Work, whether or
not fabricated, installed, or completed, or, if the Work has been rejected by Engineer, remove it
from the Project and replace it with Work that is not defective. Contractor shall pay all claims,
costs, losses, and damages (including but not limited to all fees and charges of engineers,
architects, attorneys, and other professionals and all court or arbitration or other dispute
resolution costs) arising out of or relating to such correction or removal (including but not limited
to all costs of repair or replacement of work of others).

B. When correcting defective Work under the terms of this Paragraph 13.06 or Paragraph 13.07,
Contractor shall take no action that would void or otherwise impair Owner’s special warranty and
guarantee, if any, on said Work.

13.07 Correction Period

A. If within one year after the date of Substantial Completion (or such longer period of time as may
be prescribed by the terms of any applicable special guarantee required by the Contract
Documents) or by any specific provision of the Contract Documents, any Work is found to be
defective, or if the repair of any damages to the land or areas made available for Contractor’s use
by Owner or permitted by Laws and Regulations as contemplated in Paragraph 6.11.A is found to
be defective, Contractor shall promptly, without cost to Owner and in accordance with Owner’s
written instructions:
EJCDC C-700 Standard General Conditions of the Construction Contract
Copyright © 2007 National Society of Professional Engineers for EJCDC. All rights reserved.
Page 50 of 62
1. repair such defective land or areas; or

2. correct such defective Work; or

3. if the defective Work has been rejected by Owner, remove it from the Project and replace it
with Work that is not defective, and

4. satisfactorily correct or repair or remove and replace any damage to other Work, to the work
of others or other land or areas resulting therefrom.

B. If Contractor does not promptly comply with the terms of Owner’s written instructions, or in an
emergency where delay would cause serious risk of loss or damage, Owner may have the
defective Work corrected or repaired or may have the rejected Work removed and replaced. All
claims, costs, losses, and damages (including but not limited to all fees and charges of engineers,
architects, attorneys, and other professionals and all court or arbitration or other dispute
resolution costs) arising out of or relating to such correction or repair or such removal and
replacement (including but not limited to all costs of repair or replacement of work of others) will
be paid by Contractor.

C. In special circumstances where a particular item of equipment is placed in continuous service


before Substantial Completion of all the Work, the correction period for that item may start to run
from an earlier date if so provided in the Specifications.

D. Where defective Work (and damage to other Work resulting therefrom) has been corrected or
removed and replaced under this Paragraph 13.07, the correction period hereunder with respect to
such Work will be extended for an additional period of one year after such correction or removal
and replacement has been satisfactorily completed.

E. Contractor’s obligations under this Paragraph 13.07 are in addition to any other obligation or
warranty. The provisions of this Paragraph 13.07 shall not be construed as a substitute for, or a
waiver of, the provisions of any applicable statute of limitation or repose.

13.08 Acceptance of Defective Work

A. If, instead of requiring correction or removal and replacement of defective Work, Owner (and,
prior to Engineer’s recommendation of final payment, Engineer) prefers to accept it, Owner may
do so. Contractor shall pay all claims, costs, losses, and damages (including but not limited to all
fees and charges of engineers, architects, attorneys, and other professionals and all court or
arbitration or other dispute resolution costs) attributable to Owner’s evaluation of and
determination to accept such defective Work (such costs to be approved by Engineer as to
reasonableness) and for the diminished value of the Work to the extent not otherwise paid by
Contractor pursuant to this sentence. If any such acceptance occurs prior to Engineer’s
recommendation of final payment, a Change Order will be issued incorporating the necessary
revisions in the Contract Documents with respect to the Work, and Owner shall be entitled to an
appropriate decrease in the Contract Price, reflecting the diminished value of Work so accepted.
If the parties are unable to agree as to the amount thereof, Owner may make a Claim therefor as
provided in Paragraph 10.05. If the acceptance occurs after such recommendation, an appropriate
amount will be paid by Contractor to Owner.

13.09 Owner May Correct Defective Work

A. If Contractor fails within a reasonable time after written notice from Engineer to correct defective
Work, or to remove and replace rejected Work as required by Engineer in accordance with
Paragraph 13.06.A, or if Contractor fails to perform the Work in accordance with the Contract
Documents, or if Contractor fails to comply with any other provision of the Contract Documents,
Owner may, after seven days written notice to Contractor, correct, or remedy any such deficiency.

B. In exercising the rights and remedies under this Paragraph 13.09, Owner shall proceed
expeditiously. In connection with such corrective or remedial action, Owner may exclude
Contractor from all or part of the Site, take possession of all or part of the Work and suspend
Contractor’s services related thereto, take possession of Contractor’s tools, appliances,
construction equipment and machinery at the Site, and incorporate in the Work all materials and
equipment stored at the Site or for which Owner has paid Contractor but which are stored
elsewhere. Contractor shall allow Owner, Owner’s representatives, agents and employees,
Owner’s other contractors, and Engineer and Engineer’s consultants access to the Site to enable
Owner to exercise the rights and remedies under this Paragraph.

C. All claims, costs, losses, and damages (including but not limited to all fees and charges of
engineers, architects, attorneys, and other professionals and all court or arbitration or other
dispute resolution costs) incurred or sustained by Owner in exercising the rights and remedies
under this Paragraph 13.09 will be charged against Contractor, and a Change Order will be issued
incorporating the necessary revisions in the Contract Documents with respect to the Work; and
Owner shall be entitled to an appropriate decrease in the Contract Price. If the parties are unable
to agree as to the amount of the adjustment, Owner may make a Claim therefor as provided in
Paragraph 10.05. Such claims, costs, losses and damages will include but not be limited to all
costs of repair, or replacement of work of others destroyed or damaged by correction, removal, or
replacement of Contractor’s defective Work.

D. Contractor shall not be allowed an extension of the Contract Times because of any delay in the
performance of the Work attributable to the exercise by Owner of Owner’s rights and remedies
under this Paragraph 13.09.

ARTICLE 14 – PAYMENTS TO CONTRACTOR AND COMPLETION

14.01 Schedule of Values

A. The Schedule of Values established as provided in Paragraph 2.07.A will serve as the basis for
progress payments and will be incorporated into a form of Application for Payment acceptable to
Engineer. Progress payments on account of Unit Price Work will be based on the number of units
completed.

14.02 Progress Payments

A. Applications for Payments:

1. At least 20 days before the date established in the Agreement for each progress payment (but
not more often than once a month), Contractor shall submit to Engineer for review an
EJCDC C-700 Standard General Conditions of the Construction Contract
Copyright © 2007 National Society of Professional Engineers for EJCDC. All rights reserved.
Page 52 of 62
Application for Payment filled out and signed by Contractor covering the Work completed as
of the date of the Application and accompanied by such supporting documentation as is
required by the Contract Documents. If payment is requested on the basis of materials and
equipment not incorporated in the Work but delivered and suitably stored at the Site or at
another location agreed to in writing, the Application for Payment shall also be accompanied
by a bill of sale, invoice, or other documentation warranting that Owner has received the
materials and equipment free and clear of all Liens and evidence that the materials and
equipment are covered by appropriate property insurance or other arrangements to protect
Owner’s interest therein, all of which must be satisfactory to Owner.

2. Beginning with the second Application for Payment, each Application shall include an
affidavit of Contractor stating that all previous progress payments received on account of the
Work have been applied on account to discharge Contractor’s legitimate obligations
associated with prior Applications for Payment.

3. The amount of retainage with respect to progress payments will be as stipulated in the
Agreement.

B. Review of Applications:

1. Engineer will, within 10 days after receipt of each Application for Payment, either indicate in
writing a recommendation of payment and present the Application to Owner or return the
Application to Contractor indicating in writing Engineer’s reasons for refusing to recommend
payment. In the latter case, Contractor may make the necessary corrections and resubmit the
Application.

2. Engineer’s recommendation of any payment requested in an Application for Payment will


constitute a representation by Engineer to Owner, based on Engineer’s observations of the
executed Work as an experienced and qualified design professional, and on Engineer’s
review of the Application for Payment and the accompanying data and schedules, that to the
best of Engineer’s knowledge, information and belief:

a. the Work has progressed to the point indicated;

b. the quality of the Work is generally in accordance with the Contract Documents (subject
to an evaluation of the Work as a functioning whole prior to or upon Substantial
Completion, the results of any subsequent tests called for in the Contract Documents, a
final determination of quantities and classifications for Unit Price Work under Paragraph
9.07, and any other qualifications stated in the recommendation); and

c. the conditions precedent to Contractor’s being entitled to such payment appear to have
been fulfilled in so far as it is Engineer’s responsibility to observe the Work.

3. By recommending any such payment Engineer will not thereby be deemed to have
represented that:

a. inspections made to check the quality or the quantity of the Work as it has been
performed have been exhaustive, extended to every aspect of the Work in progress, or
EJCDC C-700 Standard General Conditions of the Construction Contract
Copyright © 2007 National Society of Professional Engineers for EJCDC. All rights reserved.
Page 53 of 62
involved detailed inspections of the Work beyond the responsibilities specifically
assigned to Engineer in the Contract Documents; or

b. there may not be other matters or issues between the parties that might entitle Contractor
to be paid additionally by Owner or entitle Owner to withhold payment to Contractor.

4. Neither Engineer’s review of Contractor’s Work for the purposes of recommending payments
nor Engineer’s recommendation of any payment, including final payment, will impose
responsibility on Engineer:

a. to supervise, direct, or control the Work, or

b. for the means, methods, techniques, sequences, or procedures of construction, or the


safety precautions and programs incident thereto, or

c. for Contractor’s failure to comply with Laws and Regulations applicable to Contractor’s
performance of the Work, or

d. to make any examination to ascertain how or for what purposes Contractor has used the
moneys paid on account of the Contract Price, or

e. to determine that title to any of the Work, materials, or equipment has passed to Owner
free and clear of any Liens.

5. Engineer may refuse to recommend the whole or any part of any payment if, in Engineer’s
opinion, it would be incorrect to make the representations to Owner stated in
Paragraph 14.02.B.2. Engineer may also refuse to recommend any such payment or, because
of subsequently discovered evidence or the results of subsequent inspections or tests, revise
or revoke any such payment recommendation previously made, to such extent as may be
necessary in Engineer’s opinion to protect Owner from loss because:

a. the Work is defective, or completed Work has been damaged, requiring correction or
replacement;

b. the Contract Price has been reduced by Change Orders;

c. Owner has been required to correct defective Work or complete Work in accordance with
Paragraph 13.09; or

d. Engineer has actual knowledge of the occurrence of any of the events enumerated in
Paragraph 15.02.A.

C. Payment Becomes Due:

1. Ten days after presentation of the Application for Payment to Owner with Engineer’s
recommendation, the amount recommended will (subject to the provisions of Paragraph
14.02.D) become due, and when due will be paid by Owner to Contractor.

EJCDC C-700 Standard General Conditions of the Construction Contract


Copyright © 2007 National Society of Professional Engineers for EJCDC. All rights reserved.
Page 54 of 62
D. Reduction in Payment:

1. Owner may refuse to make payment of the full amount recommended by Engineer because:

a. claims have been made against Owner on account of Contractor’s performance or


furnishing of the Work;

b. Liens have been filed in connection with the Work, except where Contractor has
delivered a specific bond satisfactory to Owner to secure the satisfaction and discharge of
such Liens;

c. there are other items entitling Owner to a set-off against the amount recommended; or

d. Owner has actual knowledge of the occurrence of any of the events enumerated in
Paragraphs 14.02.B.5.a through 14.02.B.5.c or Paragraph 15.02.A.

2. If Owner refuses to make payment of the full amount recommended by Engineer, Owner will
give Contractor immediate written notice (with a copy to Engineer) stating the reasons for
such action and promptly pay Contractor any amount remaining after deduction of the
amount so withheld. Owner shall promptly pay Contractor the amount so withheld, or any
adjustment thereto agreed to by Owner and Contractor, when Contractor remedies the reasons
for such action.

3. Upon a subsequent determination that Owner’s refusal of payment was not justified, the
amount wrongfully withheld shall be treated as an amount due as determined by Paragraph
14.02.C.1 and subject to interest as provided in the Agreement.

14.03 Contractor’s Warranty of Title

A. Contractor warrants and guarantees that title to all Work, materials, and equipment covered by
any Application for Payment, whether incorporated in the Project or not, will pass to Owner no
later than the time of payment free and clear of all Liens.

14.04 Substantial Completion

A. When Contractor considers the entire Work ready for its intended use Contractor shall notify
Owner and Engineer in writing that the entire Work is substantially complete (except for items
specifically listed by Contractor as incomplete) and request that Engineer issue a certificate of
Substantial Completion.

B. Promptly after Contractor’s notification, Owner, Contractor, and Engineer shall make an
inspection of the Work to determine the status of completion. If Engineer does not consider the
Work substantially complete, Engineer will notify Contractor in writing giving the reasons
therefor.

C. If Engineer considers the Work substantially complete, Engineer will deliver to Owner a tentative
certificate of Substantial Completion which shall fix the date of Substantial Completion. There
shall be attached to the certificate a tentative list of items to be completed or corrected before

EJCDC C-700 Standard General Conditions of the Construction Contract


Copyright © 2007 National Society of Professional Engineers for EJCDC. All rights reserved.
Page 55 of 62
final payment. Owner shall have seven days after receipt of the tentative certificate during which
to make written objection to Engineer as to any provisions of the certificate or attached list. If,
after considering such objections, Engineer concludes that the Work is not substantially
complete, Engineer will, within 14 days after submission of the tentative certificate to Owner,
notify Contractor in writing, stating the reasons therefor. If, after consideration of Owner’s
objections, Engineer considers the Work substantially complete, Engineer will, within said 14
days, execute and deliver to Owner and Contractor a definitive certificate of Substantial
Completion (with a revised tentative list of items to be completed or corrected) reflecting such
changes from the tentative certificate as Engineer believes justified after consideration of any
objections from Owner.

D. At the time of delivery of the tentative certificate of Substantial Completion, Engineer will
deliver to Owner and Contractor a written recommendation as to division of responsibilities
pending final payment between Owner and Contractor with respect to security, operation, safety,
and protection of the Work, maintenance, heat, utilities, insurance, and warranties and
guarantees. Unless Owner and Contractor agree otherwise in writing and so inform Engineer in
writing prior to Engineer’s issuing the definitive certificate of Substantial Completion, Engineer’s
aforesaid recommendation will be binding on Owner and Contractor until final payment.

E. Owner shall have the right to exclude Contractor from the Site after the date of Substantial
Completion subject to allowing Contractor reasonable access to remove its property and
complete or correct items on the tentative list.

14.05 Partial Utilization

A. Prior to Substantial Completion of all the Work, Owner may use or occupy any substantially
completed part of the Work which has specifically been identified in the Contract Documents, or
which Owner, Engineer, and Contractor agree constitutes a separately functioning and usable part
of the Work that can be used by Owner for its intended purpose without significant interference
with Contractor’s performance of the remainder of the Work, subject to the following conditions:

1. Owner at any time may request Contractor in writing to permit Owner to use or occupy any
such part of the Work which Owner believes to be ready for its intended use and substantially
complete. If and when Contractor agrees that such part of the Work is substantially complete,
Contractor, Owner, and Engineer will follow the procedures of Paragraph 14.04.A through D
for that part of the Work.

2. Contractor at any time may notify Owner and Engineer in writing that Contractor considers
any such part of the Work ready for its intended use and substantially complete and request
Engineer to issue a certificate of Substantial Completion for that part of the Work.

3. Within a reasonable time after either such request, Owner, Contractor, and Engineer shall
make an inspection of that part of the Work to determine its status of completion. If Engineer
does not consider that part of the Work to be substantially complete, Engineer will notify
Owner and Contractor in writing giving the reasons therefor. If Engineer considers that part
of the Work to be substantially complete, the provisions of Paragraph 14.04 will apply with
respect to certification of Substantial Completion of that part of the Work and the division of
responsibility in respect thereof and access thereto.
EJCDC C-700 Standard General Conditions of the Construction Contract
Copyright © 2007 National Society of Professional Engineers for EJCDC. All rights reserved.
Page 56 of 62
4. No use or occupancy or separate operation of part of the Work may occur prior to compliance
with the requirements of Paragraph 5.10 regarding property insurance.

14.06 Final Inspection

A. Upon written notice from Contractor that the entire Work or an agreed portion thereof is
complete, Engineer will promptly make a final inspection with Owner and Contractor and will
notify Contractor in writing of all particulars in which this inspection reveals that the Work is
incomplete or defective. Contractor shall immediately take such measures as are necessary to
complete such Work or remedy such deficiencies.

14.07 Final Payment

A. Application for Payment:

1. After Contractor has, in the opinion of Engineer, satisfactorily completed all corrections
identified during the final inspection and has delivered, in accordance with the Contract
Documents, all maintenance and operating instructions, schedules, guarantees, bonds,
certificates or other evidence of insurance, certificates of inspection, marked-up record
documents (as provided in Paragraph 6.12), and other documents, Contractor may make
application for final payment following the procedure for progress payments.

2. The final Application for Payment shall be accompanied (except as previously delivered) by:

a. all documentation called for in the Contract Documents, including but not limited to the
evidence of insurance required by Paragraph 5.04.B.6;

b. consent of the surety, if any, to final payment;

c. a list of all Claims against Owner that Contractor believes are unsettled; and

d. complete and legally effective releases or waivers (satisfactory to Owner) of all Lien
rights arising out of or Liens filed in connection with the Work.

3. In lieu of the releases or waivers of Liens specified in Paragraph 14.07.A.2 and as approved
by Owner, Contractor may furnish receipts or releases in full and an affidavit of Contractor
that: (i) the releases and receipts include all labor, services, material, and equipment for
which a Lien could be filed; and (ii) all payrolls, material and equipment bills, and other
indebtedness connected with the Work for which Owner might in any way be responsible, or
which might in any way result in liens or other burdens on Owner's property, have been paid
or otherwise satisfied. If any Subcontractor or Supplier fails to furnish such a release or
receipt in full, Contractor may furnish a bond or other collateral satisfactory to Owner to
indemnify Owner against any Lien.

B. Engineer’s Review of Application and Acceptance:

1. If, on the basis of Engineer’s observation of the Work during construction and final
inspection, and Engineer’s review of the final Application for Payment and accompanying

EJCDC C-700 Standard General Conditions of the Construction Contract


Copyright © 2007 National Society of Professional Engineers for EJCDC. All rights reserved.
Page 57 of 62
documentation as required by the Contract Documents, Engineer is satisfied that the Work
has been completed and Contractor’s other obligations under the Contract Documents have
been fulfilled, Engineer will, within ten days after receipt of the final Application for
Payment, indicate in writing Engineer’s recommendation of payment and present the
Application for Payment to Owner for payment. At the same time Engineer will also give
written notice to Owner and Contractor that the Work is acceptable subject to the provisions
of Paragraph 14.09. Otherwise, Engineer will return the Application for Payment to
Contractor, indicating in writing the reasons for refusing to recommend final payment, in
which case Contractor shall make the necessary corrections and resubmit the Application for
Payment.

C. Payment Becomes Due:

1. Thirty days after the presentation to Owner of the Application for Payment and
accompanying documentation, the amount recommended by Engineer, less any sum Owner is
entitled to set off against Engineer’s recommendation, including but not limited to liquidated
damages, will become due and will be paid by Owner to Contractor.

14.08 Final Completion Delayed

A. If, through no fault of Contractor, final completion of the Work is significantly delayed, and if
Engineer so confirms, Owner shall, upon receipt of Contractor’s final Application for Payment
(for Work fully completed and accepted) and recommendation of Engineer, and without
terminating the Contract, make payment of the balance due for that portion of the Work fully
completed and accepted. If the remaining balance to be held by Owner for Work not fully
completed or corrected is less than the retainage stipulated in the Agreement, and if bonds have
been furnished as required in Paragraph 5.01, the written consent of the surety to the payment of
the balance due for that portion of the Work fully completed and accepted shall be submitted by
Contractor to Engineer with the Application for such payment. Such payment shall be made
under the terms and conditions governing final payment, except that it shall not constitute a
waiver of Claims.

14.09 Waiver of Claims

A. The making and acceptance of final payment will constitute:

1. a waiver of all Claims by Owner against Contractor, except Claims arising from unsettled
Liens, from defective Work appearing after final inspection pursuant to Paragraph 14.06,
from failure to comply with the Contract Documents or the terms of any special guarantees
specified therein, or from Contractor’s continuing obligations under the Contract Documents;
and

2. a waiver of all Claims by Contractor against Owner other than those previously made in
accordance with the requirements herein and expressly acknowledged by Owner in writing as
still unsettled.

ARTICLE 15 – SUSPENSION OF WORK AND TERMINATION

15.01 Owner May Suspend Work

A. At any time and without cause, Owner may suspend the Work or any portion thereof for a period
of not more than 90 consecutive days by notice in writing to Contractor and Engineer which will
fix the date on which Work will be resumed. Contractor shall resume the Work on the date so
fixed. Contractor shall be granted an adjustment in the Contract Price or an extension of the
Contract Times, or both, directly attributable to any such suspension if Contractor makes a Claim
therefor as provided in Paragraph 10.05.

15.02 Owner May Terminate for Cause

A. The occurrence of any one or more of the following events will justify termination for cause:

1. Contractor’s persistent failure to perform the Work in accordance with the Contract
Documents (including, but not limited to, failure to supply sufficient skilled workers or
suitable materials or equipment or failure to adhere to the Progress Schedule established
under Paragraph 2.07 as adjusted from time to time pursuant to Paragraph 6.04);

2. Contractor’s disregard of Laws or Regulations of any public body having jurisdiction;

3. Contractor’s repeated disregard of the authority of Engineer; or

4. Contractor’s violation in any substantial way of any provisions of the Contract Documents.

B. If one or more of the events identified in Paragraph 15.02.A occur, Owner may, after giving
Contractor (and surety) seven days written notice of its intent to terminate the services of
Contractor:

1. exclude Contractor from the Site, and take possession of the Work and of all Contractor’s
tools, appliances, construction equipment, and machinery at the Site, and use the same to the
full extent they could be used by Contractor (without liability to Contractor for trespass or
conversion);

2. incorporate in the Work all materials and equipment stored at the Site or for which Owner

suspension or failure within that time, terminate the Contract and recover from Owner payment
on the same terms as provided in Paragraph 15.03.

B. In lieu of terminating the Contract and without prejudice to any other right or remedy, if Engineer

days after written notice to Owner and Engineer, stop the Work until payment is made of all such
amounts due Contractor, including interest thereon. The provisions of this Paragraph 15.04 are

attributable to Contractor’s stopping the Work as permitted by this Paragraph.

field.

Staking shall be completed in conformance with Division 1 of the Specifications.

2.2 DEVIATIONS OCCASIONED BY UNDERGROUND FACILITIES

Wherever significant obstructions not shown on the Drawings are encountered during the progress of
the Work, CONTRACTOR shall proceed in accordance with the General Conditions to notify owners
and protect the facilities. Existing items unnecessarily damaged during the performance of the Work
shall be repaired and replaced at the expense of CONTRACTOR.

2.3 CAUTION IN EXCAVATION

CONTRACTOR shall proceed with caution in the excavation and preparation of the trench so that the
exact location of underground structures may be determined and shall be held responsible for the
repair of such structures when broken or otherwise damaged because of carelessness on its part.

20000-24
1060.181/7-2010
2.4 SUBSURFACE EXPLORATION

Whenever, in the opinion of ENGINEER, it is necessary to explore and excavate to determine the
location of existing underground facilities, CONTRACTOR shall make explorations and excavations for
such purposes. If CONTRACTOR is asked to perform additional Work in making the explorations and
excavations, extra compensation will be allowed as specified in the General Conditions.

SECTION 3–EXCAVATION AND PREPARATION OF TRENCH

3.1 GENERAL EXCAVATION

The trench shall be dug so that the utilities can be laid to the alignment and depth specified. Unless
otherwise allowed by ENGINEER, trenches shall not be excavated more than 100 feet in advance of
pipe laying. Earth excavation shall include all excavation except rock as hereinafter defined. Included in
earth excavation shall be removal of street paving of all types, existing structures, existing
improvements and trees smaller than 4 inches in diameter measured 4 feet above the ground, all as
necessary to complete the pipe installation.

3.2 EXCAVATION TO GRADE

The trench shall be finished to the depth necessary to provide a uniform and continuous bearing and
support for the pipe on the bedding material provided at every point between bell holes. Any part of the
bottom of trench excavated below the specified grade shall be corrected with bedding material,
thoroughly compacted in place. The bedding shall be shaped and finished with hand tools to fit the
bottom quadrant to the pipe.

If, in the opinion of ENGINEER, unstable soil conditions are encountered at subgrade, CONTRACTOR
shall replace the unstable soil with special bedding. CONTRACTOR shall be allowed extra
compensation for the special bedding, unless the unstable soil conditions are caused by
CONTRACTOR's failure to adequately dewater the trench, in which case CONTRACTOR shall bear the
entire cost.

All excavated material shall be piled in a manner that will not endanger the Work. Stockpiles not for
immediate backfilling shall have silt fences placed around their perimeter for erosion control. The Work
shall be conducted in such a manner that pedestrian and motor traffic is not unnecessarily disrupted.
Fire hydrants, valve boxes and manholes shall be left unobstructed. Gutters shall be kept clear or other
satisfactory provisions made for street drainage, and natural water courses shall not be obstructed.

Excavated material designated by ENGINEER as being undesirable for backfilling shall be immediately
removed as excavation progresses. Points of disposal are subject to approval of OWNER. All
undesirable and surplus material disposed of must be leveled off and graded to rough elevations as
determined by OWNER.

CONTRACTOR shall remove bituminous pavement and road surface as a part of the trench
excavation. The width of pavement removed shall be the minimum possible, and acceptable, for
convenient and safe installation of utilities and appurtenances.

All bituminous pavement shall be cut on neat, straight lines and shall not be damaged beyond the limits
of the trench.

Where it is necessary to trench through concrete pavement, a strip shall be sawed and removed in
such a manner as not to disturb the remainder of the pavement. Paving and undermining of existing
concrete pavement shall be prevented by CONTRACTOR. If CONTRACTOR unnecessarily removes or

20000-25
1060.181/7-2010
damages pavement or surfaces beyond limits acceptable to ENGINEER, such pavement and surfaces
shall be replaced or repaired at the expense of CONTRACTOR.

3.3 DEWATERING

CONTRACTOR shall, at its own expense, keep the excavation clear of water while structures and
appurtenances are being built, utilities are being installed, and fill and backfill is being compacted.
CONTRACTOR shall at all times have on hand sufficient pumping equipment and machinery in good
working condition for all ordinary emergencies, including power outages, and shall have available at all
times competent workers for the operation of the pumping equipment. The dewatering systems shall
not be shut down between shifts, on holidays or weekends, or during Work stoppages.

All dewatering shall be done in accordance with applicable federal, state, and local code requirements.

Under no conditions shall the Work be laid in or under water. No water shall flow over the Work until the
joints are complete or the concrete has set. Wherever necessary, CONTRACTOR shall excavate in
advance of the completed Work, lead the water into sumps or pump wells, and provide erosion control
measures to prevent water or sediment damage.

The expense for making all extra excavations necessary to prevent water from interfering with the
proper construction of the Work and for forming of all dams, digging sumps or pump wells, bailing and
pumping, and erosion control shall be borne by CONTRACTOR. Any permits necessary for the
dewatering operations shall be obtained and paid for by CONTRACTOR. No extra payment will be
made for dewatering of the trench whether accomplished by the use of sumps and pumps, well point
systems, or deep wells.

CONTRACTOR's dewatering system shall ensure that soils within the trench will not be destabilized by
hydrostatic uplift pressures from adjacent groundwater. If conditions warrant, CONTRACTOR shall
furnish and install well point systems or deep wells. Spacing and depth of well points or wells shall be
adequate to lower the piezometric level to at least 2 feet below the bottom of the excavation. Additional
lowering shall be provided as necessary to create a stable subgrade. The control of groundwater shall
be such that softening or heaving of the bottom of excavations or formation of quick conditions or boils
shall be prevented. Dewatering systems shall be designed and operated to prevent the migration or
removal of soils. In areas where rock is encountered, the water level shall be kept at or below top of
rock but at least 6 inches below bottom of concrete. Additional rock shall be removed as needed to
provide clearances.

CONTRACTOR shall take all necessary precautions during the dewatering operation to protect
adjacent structures against subsidence, flooding, or other damage. The dewatering system shall be
installed and operated so that the groundwater level outside the excavation is not reduced to the extent
that would damage or endanger adjacent structures or property. Any such facilities and structures
damaged shall be repaired or replaced to the satisfaction of their owner.

Prior to dewatering, CONTRACTOR shall take into account the effect of its proposed dewatering
operation on existing private water supply systems and shall make arrangements with property owners
for protecting their supplies or providing alternative supply. If CONTRACTOR’s dewatering operation
adversely affects private water supply systems, CONTRACTOR shall provide property owners with
alternative potable and nonpotable supplies until dewatering operations are ceased and groundwater
levels return to normal. If the water in private water supply wells is contaminated through no fault of
CONTRACTOR after restoration of original groundwater levels, OWNER will provide measures to
restore water potability. CONTRACTOR is responsible for restoration of the water supply, not its
potability after restoration.

20000-26
1060.181/7-2010
In areas where continuous operation of dewatering pumps is necessary, CONTRACTOR shall avoid
noise disturbance to nearby residences and businesses to the greatest extent possible by using electric
driven pumps, intake and exhaust silencers, or housing to minimize noise.

The release of groundwater to its static level shall be performed in such a manner as to maintain the
undisturbed state of the natural foundation soils, prevent disturbance of compacted fill or backfill, and
prevent floatation or movement of all structures and pipelines.

3.4 WIDTH OF TRENCH

CONTRACTOR shall be responsible for determining and providing the minimum width necessary to
provide a safe trench in accordance with current OSHA standards and all other applicable standards.
The top width of trench excavation shall be kept as narrow as is reasonably possible and acceptable to
minimize pavement damage. Pay items related to maximum trench widths shall not limit
CONTRACTOR's responsibility to provide safe trench conditions.

Width of Trench–Rigid Pipe: The width of trench below the outside top of the pipe shall be as shown in
the following table for the sizes listed. A minimum clearance of 8 inches between the outside of the pipe
barrel and the trench wall at the pipe spring line shall be maintained to allow for bedding and
haunching. If sheeting is used and is going to remain in place, the trench width shall be measured as
the clear distance between inside faces of the sheeting. Otherwise, the trench width shall be based on
the width between stable trench walls after sheeting is removed.

10 36
12 36
15 36
18 and larger SEE SPECIAL PROVISIONS

Where the width of trench below the outside top of the pipe barrel cannot be otherwise maintained
within the limits shown above, CONTRACTOR, at its own expense, shall furnish an adequate pipe
installation for the actual trench width which will meet design conditions. This may be accomplished by
furnishing higher class bedding, a stronger pipe, concrete cradle, cap or envelope or by driving
sheeting prior to excavation to subgrade. Removal of sheeting below the top of the pipe, if allowed by
ENGINEER, shall be gradual during backfilling.

If the maximum trench width is exceeded for any reason other than by request of ENGINEER, the
concrete cradle, cap, sheeting, bedding or the stronger pipe shall be placed by CONTRACTOR at its
own expense. Where the maximum trench width is exceeded at the written request of ENGINEER, the
concrete cradle, cap, sheeting, bedding or stronger pipe will be paid for on the basis of the price bid.

Width of Trench–Thermoplastic and Ductile Iron Pipe: The trench width for flexible pipe shall be
minimum three times the pipe outside diameter or the maximum trench width specified for rigid pipe,
whichever is greater. A minimum clearance of 8 inches between the outside of the pipe barrel and the
trench wall at the pipe spring line shall be maintained to allow for bedding and haunching.

20000-27

masses and all conglomerate deposits or any other material so firmly cemented that in the opinion of
ENGINEER it is not practical to excavate and remove same with a 225-net flywheel horsepower trench
backhoe or equal, except after continuous drilling and blasting. Soft or disintegrated rock which can be
removed with a pick, loose, shaken or previously broken rock, or rock which may fall into the excavation
from outside the limits of excavation will not be classified as rock excavation. Rock excavation shall
also include all rock boulders necessary to be removed having a volume of 2 cubic yards or more.

When rock is encountered, it shall be stripped of earth and ENGINEER or OWNER's representative
notified and given proper time to evaluate same before removal. Any rock removed which has not been
measured by ENGINEER or OWNER's representative will not be classified as rock excavation.

The depth of trench in rock shall be 6 inches below the lowest outside bottom of the pipe.

All rock excavated from the trench shall be classified as undesirable backfill material and shall be
disposed of as specified in the Excavation to Grade section. All trenches in rock shall be backfilled with
bedding, cover, and backfill material furnished by CONTRACTOR.

3.6 BLASTING

Blasting for rock excavation will be permitted only after securing the written approval of OWNER and
only after proper precautions are taken for the protection of persons or property. The hours of blasting
will be fixed by OWNER. Any damage caused by blasting shall be repaired by CONTRACTOR at its
expense. CONTRACTOR's method and procedure of blasting shall conform to state laws and municipal
ordinances.

CONTRACTOR shall provide a copy of Blaster License as required by the licensing agencies to
OWNER prior to commencement of blasting.

3.7 SPECIAL BEDDING

Where the bottom of the trench at subgrade is found to be unstable or unsuitable material, which in the
opinion of ENGINEER should be removed, CONTRACTOR shall excavate and remove such unstable
or unsuitable material to the normal trench width and to a depth of 2 feet. The excavated area shall be
lined with filter fabric, Mirafi 140 N, Supac, or equal, and backfilled with bedding material in layers. At
subgrade the filter fabric shall be wrapped over the special bedding with an 18-inch overlap. Normal
bedding shall then be placed over the special bedding to support the piping. See Dewatering section for
additional conditions.
