or affecting the County, or the property, funds, operations, or powers of the County, and such
provisions are by this reference made a part hereof.

Article 3.      SITE INVESTIGATION

Before bidding on this Work, Contractor shall make a careful investigation of the site and thoroughly
familiarize itself with the requirements of Contract. By the act of submitting a bid for the Work

Contractor will submit with its bid a Site Visit Certification, evidencing its investigation of the site.

Article 4.      STATUS OF CONTRACTOR

(a) Contractor and subcontractors are, and shall at all times be deemed to be, independent
contractors and shall be wholly responsible for the manner in which they perform the services
required of them by the terms of this Contract. Nothing herein contained shall be construed as
creating the relationship of employer and employee, principal and agent, or joint ventures between
the County or any of the County’s employees or agents, on the one hand, and Contractor or any of
Contractor’s agents, employees, or subcontractors, on the other hand. Contractor assumes
exclusively the responsibility for the acts of its agents, employees, and subcontractors as they relate
to the services to be provided during the course and scope of their work. Contractor, its agents,
employees and subcontractors shall not be entitled to any rights or privileges of the County
employees. The County shall be permitted to monitor the activities of Contractor to determine
compliance with the terms of this Contract.

(b) Contractor and subcontractors are required by law to be licensed and regulated by the
Contractor's State License Board. Any questions concerning a contractor may be referred to the
Registrar, Contractors' State License Board, 3132 Bradshaw Road, Post Office Box 2600,
Sacramento, California, 95826.

(c) The Contractor shall be responsible to the County for acts and omissions of the Contractor’s
employees, representatives and agents and those of the subcontractor, its employees, representatives
and agents, and all other persons performing any portion of the Work under a contract or at the
request of Contractor. The Contractor shall not be relieved of the obligation to perform the Work in
accordance with the Contract Documents because of activities or duties performed by the
Construction Manager, if there is one, Architect, Inspector, or by tests, inspections or approvals
required or performed by persons other than Contractor.
                                                                            B34A-08-09 – SITE WORK

                                                         SANTA CLARA COUNTY OFFICE OF EDUCATION



Article 5.       CHANGE IN NAME AND NATURE OF CONTRACTOR'S LEGAL ENTITY

Before Contractor makes any change in the name or legal nature of the Contractor’s entity,
Contractor shall first notify the County directly, or through the Construction Manager, if there is one,
and cooperate with the County in making such changes as in this Contract the County may request.

Article 6.       CONTRACTOR'S SUPERVISION

(a) During progress of the Work, Contractor shall keep on the premises (including both the site and
    the plant) a competent construction superintendent who is an employee of the Contractor, and is
    satisfactory to the County, as indicated directly, or through the Construction Manager, if there is
    one. Before commencing the Work herein, Contractor shall give written notice directly to the
    County, or through the Construction Manager, if there is one, of the name of such superintendent.
    The Contractor’s construction superintendent shall not be changed except with prior written
    notice to the County or Construction Manager, if there is one, unless the Contractor’s
    construction superintendent proves to be unsatisfactory to Contractor, the County, or any of the
    County’s employees or agents, in which case, Contractor shall notify the County directly, or
    through the Construction Manager, if there is one, in writing. The Contractor’s construction
    superintendent shall represent Contractor, and all directions given to Contractor’s construction
    superintendent shall be binding on the Contractor.

(b) Contractor shall give efficient supervision to Work, using its best skill and attention. Contractor
    shall carefully study and compare all drawings, specifications, and other instructions and shall at
    once report to the County, directly, or through the Construction Manager, if there is one, any
    error, inconsistency or omission that Contractor, its employees or subcontractors may discover, in
    writing with a copy to the County’s inspector. The Contractor’s construction superintendent
    shall have sole responsibility for discovery of errors, inconsistencies or omissions.

Article 7.       SUBCONTRACTORS

(a) Contractor agrees to bind every subcontractor by terms of Contract as far as such terms are
    applicable to subcontractor's work. If Contractor shall subcontract any part of this Contract,
    Contractor shall be as fully responsible to the County for acts and omissions of any subcontractor
    and of persons either directly or indirectly employed by any subcontractor, as it is for acts and
    omissions of persons directly employed by Contractor. Nothing contained in the Contract
    Documents shall create any contractual relation between any subcontractor and the County, nor
    shall this Contract be construed to be for the benefit of any subcontractor. The Divisions or
    Sections of the Contract Documents (Specifications) are not intended to control the Contractor in
    dividing the work among subcontractors or limit the work performed by any trade.

(b) The County’s consent to, or approval of, any subcontractor under this Contract shall not in any
    way relieve Contractor of any obligations under this Contract and no such consent shall be
    deemed to waive any provisions of this Contract.

(c)    Pursuant to Section 4104 of the Public Contract Code, Contractor must submit a List of
      Subcontractors with its bid. If Contractor specifies more than one subcontractor for the same
      portion of work or fails to specify a subcontractor, and such portion of the Work exceeds one-half

    to perform and shall perform such work itself, unless Contractor provides for substitution or
    addition of subcontractors. Substitution or addition of subcontractors shall be permitted only as
    authorized in Chapter 2 (commencing at Section 4100), Division 5, Title 1 of the Public Contract
    Code.

    materialmen engaged upon the Work.

    subcontractors or between subcontractors.

    not without consent in writing of the County: (1) substitute any person as a subcontractor in place
    of the subcontractor designated in the original bid; (2) permit any such subcontractor to be
    assigned or transferred, or allow any portion of the Work to be performed by anyone other that
    the original subcontractor listed in the bid; or (3) sublet or subcontract any portion of the Work in
    excess of one-half of one percent (1/2 of 1%) of the Contractor’s total bid as to which its original
    bid did not designate a subcontractor.

Article 8.      PROHIBITED INTERESTS

No official of the County that is authorized on behalf of the County to negotiate, make, accept, or
approve, or to take part in negotiating, making, accepting or approving any architectural,
engineering, inspection, construction or material supply contract or any subcontract in
connection with construction of Project, shall become directly or indirectly interested financially
in this Contract or in any part thereof. No officer, employee, attorney, or inspector for the
County who is authorized on behalf of the County to exercise any executive, supervisory or other
similar function in connection with construction of Project shall become directly or indirectly
interested financially in this Contract or in any part thereof. Contractor shall receive no
compensation and shall repay the County for any compensation received by Contractor
hereunder, if Contractor aids, abets or knowingly participates in the violation of this Article.

Article 9.      COUNTY’S INSPECTOR

(a) One or more inspector(s), including special inspectors, as required, will be employed and
    assigned to the Work by the County, in accordance with requirements of Title 24, Part 1, of
    the California Code of Regulations. Duties of an inspector are specifically defined in Part 1
    of Title 24.

(b) No work shall be carried on except with the knowledge and under the inspection of Inspector(s).
    Inspector(s) shall have free access to any or all parts of Work at any time. Contractor shall
    furnish Inspector reasonable opportunities for obtaining such information as may be necessary
    to keep Inspector fully informed regarding progress and manner of work and character of
    materials. Inspection of Work shall not relieve Contractor from any obligation to fulfill this
    Contract. Inspector shall be authorized to stop work whenever provisions of the Contract are
                                                                           B34A-08-09 – SITE WORK

     not being complied with and such noncompliance is discovered. Contractor shall instruct its
     employees accordingly.

    implied, and that Contractor is not an intended beneficiary of the Inspector’s contract with the
    County.

Article 10.     NOT USED

Article 11.     NOT USED

Article 12.     NO ORAL AGREEMENTS

No oral agreement or conversation with any officer, agent, or employee of the County, either before
or after execution of Contract, shall affect or modify any of the terms or obligations contained in any
of the Contract Documents.

Article 13.     ASSIGNMENT OF ANTITRUST ACTIONS

(a) Section 4553 of the Government Code, in part, states:
    If an awarding body or public purchasing body receives, either through judgment or settlement,
    monetary recovery for a cause of action assigned under this chapter, the assignor shall be entitled
    to receive reimbursement for actual legal costs incurred and may, upon demand, recover from the
    public body any portion of the recovery, including treble damages, attributable to overcharges
    that were paid by the assignor but were not paid by the public body as part of the bid price, less
    the expenses incurred in obtaining that portion of the recovery.

(b) Section 4554 of the Government Code, in part, states:
    Upon demand in writing by the assignor, the assignee shall, within one year from such demand,
    reassign the cause of action assigned under this part if the assignor has been or may have been
    injured by the violation of law for which the cause of action arose and (a) the assignee has not
    been injured thereby, or (b) the assignee declines to file a court action for the cause of action.

    Contractor, on behalf of itself and all of its subcontractors, agrees to assign to the County all
    rights, title, and interest in and to all such causes of action Contractor and/or its subcontractors
    may have hereunder. This assignment shall become effective at the time the County tenders final
    payment to the Contractor, and Contractor shall require assignments from all subcontractors in
    compliance herewith.

Article 14.     OTHER CONTRACTS

(a) The County reserves the right to employ other prime contractors to perform services for the
    County at the same time as Contractor, and the right to let other contracts in connection with this
    Work. Contractor shall afford other contractors reasonable opportunity for introduction and
    storage of their materials and execution of their work and shall properly coordinate and connect
    its work with that of such other contractors.

PORTABLE SITE PREP FOR THE FOUNDRY COMMUNITY DAY SCHOOL
SANTA CLARA COUNTY OFFICE OF EDUCATION


(b) If any part of Contractor’s work depends for proper execution or results upon work of any
    subcontractor or any other contractor, the Contractor shall inspect and promptly report to the
    County in writing any defects in such work that render it unsuitable for such proper execution or
    results. Contractor will be held accountable for damages to the County for that work that it failed
    to inspect or should have inspected. Contractor’s failure to inspect and report shall constitute its
    acceptance of other contractor's work as fit and proper for reception of its work, except as to
    latent defects that may be discovered in the work of another contractor after the execution of
    Contractor’s work.

(c) To insure proper execution of its subsequent work, Contractor shall measure and inspect work
    already in place and shall at once report to the County in writing any discrepancy between
    executed work and Contract Documents.

(d) Contractor shall ascertain to its own satisfaction the scope of the Project and nature of any other
    contracts that have been or may be awarded by the County in prosecution of the Project to the
    end that Contractor may perform this Contract in light of such other contracts, if any.

(e) Nothing herein contained shall be interpreted as granting to Contractor exclusive occupancy at
    site of Project. Contractor shall not cause any unnecessary hindrance or delay to any other
    contractor working on Project. If simultaneous execution of more than one Contract for the
    Project is likely to cause interference with performance of some other contract or contracts, the
    County shall decide which contractor shall cease or suspend work temporarily and which
    contractor shall continue or whether work can be coordinated so that contractors may proceed
    simultaneously.

(f) The County shall not be responsible for any damages suffered or extra costs incurred by
    Contractor resulting directly or indirectly from award or performance or attempted performance
    of any other contract or contracts on Project, or caused by any decision or omission of the
    County, or Construction Manager, if there is one, respecting the order of precedence in
    performance of contracts.

Article 15.     OCCUPANCY

The County reserves the right to occupy portions of the Project at any time before completion, and
such occupancy shall not constitute final acceptance of any portion of the Work or preclude the
assessment of liquidated damages after such occupancy. The Contractor will not be subject to
performing work or repairs caused by the County’s use of the occupied areas. Condition of areas to
be occupied by the County shall be mutually inspected by the County, Construction Manager (if
there is one), Architect, inspector, and Contractor. Such occupancy shall not extend the Contract
Time. The Contractor will be required to complete punch list items documented by the County,
Inspector, and Contractor prior to final payment.

Article 16.     COUNTY'S RIGHT TO DO WORK

Should the Contractor at any time during the process of construction, fail or refuse to furnish enough
materials or workmen to properly execute the Work, unless prohibited from so doing through the
action of the County or other authorized agents, the County, after giving five (5) working days
                                                                           B34A-08-09 – SITE WORK

written notice to Contractor, either directly or through the Construction Manager, if there is one, may
without prejudice to any other right it may have, proceed to furnish the materials and/or workers
necessary to proceed with or complete the Work and may deduct the cost thereof, together with
reasonable expenses arising from such procedure, from any amounts then due or that may thereafter
become due to Contractor.

Article 17.     COUNTY'S RIGHT TO TERMINATE OR SUSPEND CONTRACT

(a) If Contractor refuses or fails to execute the Work or any separable part thereof with such
    diligence as will insure its completion within the Contract Time or any extension thereof, or fails
    to complete said Work within such time, or if Contractor should file a petition for relief as a
    debtor, or should relief be ordered against Contractor as a debtor under Title 11 of the United
    States Code, or if Contractor should make a general assignment for the benefit of its creditors, or
    should a receiver be appointed on account of its insolvency, or if it should repeatedly refuse or
    should fail, except in cases for which extension of time is provided, to supply enough properly
    skilled workers or proper materials to complete the Work in the time specified, or persistently
    disregard laws or ordinances or instructions of the County, or if Contractor or its subcontractor
    should otherwise materially violate any provision of this Contract, then the County may, without
    prejudice to any other right or remedy, serve written notice upon Contractor and its Surety of the
    County’s intention to terminate this Contract, such notice to contain the reasons for such
    intention to terminate. Unless within ten (10) calendar days after the service of such notice such
    condition or violation shall cease and arrangement satisfactory to the County for the correction
    thereof be made, this Contract shall upon the expiration of said ten (10) calendar days, cease and
    terminate. In such case, Contractor shall not be entitled to receive any further payment until
    except as provided as herein.

(b) In the event of any such termination, the County shall immediately serve written notice thereof
    upon Surety and Contractor, and Surety shall have the right to take over and perform this
    Contract, provided, however, that if Surety does not give the County written notice of its
    intention to take over and perform this Contract within ten (10) calendar days after service upon
    it of said notice of termination and does not commence said performance on a timely basis
    acceptable to the County, the County may take over the Work and execute same to completion.
    The County may enter a contract with another contractor, or complete the Work by any other
    method it may deem advisable for the account and at the expense of Contractor, and Contractor
    and its Surety shall be liable to the County for any cost and/or other damages incurred by the
    County as a result of such termination, including without limitation, attorneys’ fees, all costs
    necessary to repair Contractor’s work not in compliance with the Contract Documents, and all
    costs necessary for the completion of the Work in excess of the Contract Price. Time is of the
    essence in this Contract, and therefore, Contractor and its Surety shall also be liable for any delay
    caused by such termination, consistent with the provisions of the Contract Documents pertaining
    to liquidated damages. If the County takes over the Work, as hereinabove provided, the County
    may, without liability for so doing, take possession of, and utilize in completing the Work, such
    materials, appliances, plant, and other property belonging to Contractor as may be on the site of
    the Work, in bonded storage, or previously paid for, and necessary thereof.

(c) If the unpaid balance of Contract Price exceeds the expense of finishing the Work, including, but
    not limited to, compensation for additional legal, architectural, managerial, inspection and

    administrative services, such excess shall be paid to Contractor. If such expense shall exceed
    such unpaid balance, Contractor and/or surety shall pay the difference to the County, in addition
    to any other damages provided under this Contract and/or by law.

(d) The County may, without cause, order Contractor in writing to suspend, delay, or interrupt the
    Work in whole or in part for such period of time as the County may determine necessary. An
    adjustment shall be made for any actual, reasonable, and necessary increases in the cost of
    Contractor’s performance of the Contract caused by such suspension, delay or interruption
    unless: (1) that performance is, was or would have been so suspended, delayed or interrupted by
    another cause for which Contractor is responsible; or (2) that an equitable adjustment or claim is
    made or denied under another provision of the Contract.

(e) The County may, at any time and without cause, terminate the Contract for the County’s
    convenience. Upon receipt of written notice from the County of such termination for
    convenience, Contractor shall: (1) cease operations as directed in the notice; (2) take actions
    necessary, and such actions that the County may direct, for the protection and preservation of the
    Work; and (3) except for work directed to be performed prior to the effective date of termination
    stated in the notice, terminate all existing subcontracts and purchase orders and enter into no
    further subcontracts and purchase orders. In case of such termination for the County’s
    convenience under this provision, the Contractor shall be entitled to receive payment for work
    performed under this Contract, and actual, reasonable and necessary costs incurred by reason of
    such termination.

(f) If the Contract is terminated under Paragraph (a) of this Article, and it is subsequently determined
    for any reason that the Contractor was not in default under the provisions thereof, the termination
    shall be deemed a termination for convenience of the County under Paragraph (e) of this Article,
    and the rights of the Contractor and the County shall be determined in accordance with the
    provisions thereof.

(g) The foregoing provisions are cumulative to, and do not limit, any other rights or remedies
    available to the County.

Article 18.     CONTRACTOR'S RIGHT TO TERMINATE CONTRACT

If through no fault of Contractor, or of anyone employed by it, (1) the Work is stopped by order of
any court or governmental authority, other than the County, or (2) the County fails to issue payment
to Contractor within sixty (60) calendar days after it is due, then Contractor may, upon ten (10)
calendar days after service of written notice to the County, stop work or terminate the Contract.
Contractor’s damages shall be limited to direct, actual, and unavoidable additional costs of labor,
materials or equipment directly resulting from (2), above.

    defining the performance or other salient requirements and that other products of equal
    capacities, quality and function shall be considered. The Contractor may recommend the
    substitution of a material, article, or piece equipment of equal substance and function to those
    referred to in the Contract Documents by reference to brand name or catalogue number, and if, in
    the opinion of the County, such material, article, or piece of equipment is of equal substance and

(d) Trade Name or Trade Term: It is not the intention of this Contract to detail the description of any
    materials and/or methods commonly known to the trade under "trade name" or "trade term." The
    mere mention or notation of such "trade name" or "trade term" shall be considered a sufficient
    notice to Contractor that it will be required to complete, finish and render operable the referenced
    work, including any and all appurtenances and incidental and accessory items to same, consistent
    with the best practices of all trade(s) involved.

(e) The naming of any material and/or equipment shall mean furnishing and installing of same,
    including all incidental and accessory items thereto and/or labor therefore, as per best practices of
    the trade(s) involved, unless specifically noted otherwise.

    same as similar parts that are shown or specified. Large scale details shall take precedence over
    smaller scale drawings as to shape and details of construction. Specifications shall govern as to
    materials, workmanship, and installation procedures. Plans and specifications are intended to be fully
    cooperative and to agree. In case of conflict, the specification calling for the higher quality, material
    or workmanship shall prevail. If Contractor observes that plans and specifications are in conflict,
    however, Contractor shall promptly notify the County in writing, and any necessary changes shall be
    adjusted as provided in the Article 68, entitled "Changes and Extra Work."

(g) Specifications and accompanying plans are intended to delineate and describe the Project and its
    component parts to such a degree as will enable skilled and competent contractors and
    subcontractors to intelligently bid upon the Work, and to carry said Work to a successful and
    complete conclusion.

(h) Plans and specifications are intended to comply with all laws, ordinances, rules and regulations
    of constituted authorities having jurisdiction, and where referred to in the Contract Documents,
    said laws, ordinances, rules and regulations shall be considered as a part of the Contract, within
    the limits specified. Contractor shall bear all expense of correcting work done contrary to said
    laws, ordinances, rules and regulations, if (1) Contractor or subcontractor knew or should have
    known that the work as performed is contrary to said laws, ordinances, rules and/or regulations
    and if Contractor performed same without first consulting the County for further instructions
    regarding said work or (2) if Contractor or subcontractor disregarded the County’s instructions
    regarding said work.

(i) Questions regarding interpretation of plans and specifications shall be clarified by the County in
    writing. Should Contractor commence work, or any part thereof, without seeking clarification,
    Contractor waives any claim for extra work or damage as a result of any ambiguity, conflict or
    lack of information.

(j) Contractor will be furnished, free of charge, 6 copies of plans and specifications. Additional
    copies may be obtained at cost of reproduction.

    specifications warrant, Contractor shall give written notice thereof to the County within five (5)
    calendar days of the receipt of same. In case notice is not given to the County within five (5)
    calendar days, it will be assumed the details are a reasonable development of the scale drawings.
    In case notice is given, then the claim will be considered, and if found justified, the County will
    either modify the drawings or issue a change order for the extra work involved.

(d) All parts of the described and shown construction shall be of the best quality of their respective
    kinds and Contractor is hereby advised to use all diligence to become fully involved as to the
    required construction and finish, and in no case to proceed with the different parts of the Work
    without obtaining first from the County such directions and/or drawings as may be necessary for
    the proper performance of the Work.

(e) If it is found at any time, before or after completion of the Work, that Contractor has varied from
    the plans and/or specifications, in material, quality, form or finish, or in the amount or value of
    the materials and labor used, the County shall make a recommendation: (1) that all such
    improper work should be removed, remade or replaced, and all work disturbed by these changes
    be made good at Contractor’s expense; or (2) that the County deduct from any amount due
    Contractor, the sum of money equivalent to the difference in value between the work performed
    and that called for by the plans and specifications. The County shall determine such difference in
    value. The County, at its option, may pursue either course.

drawings as to subsurface soil condition or to elevations of existing grades or elevations of
underlying rock is approximate only, is not guaranteed, does not form a part of Contract, and
Contractor may not rely thereon. Contractor is required to make visual examination of site and must
make whatever tests Contractor deems appropriate to determine underground condition of soil.
Contractor agrees that no claim against the County will be made by Contractor for damages and
hereby waives any rights to damage in the event that during progress of Work Contractor encounters

(d) Any material shipped by the Contractor from the source of supply prior to having satisfactorily
    passed such testing and inspection or prior to the receipt of notice from the County’s
    representative that such testing and inspection will not be required shall not be incorporated in
    the job.

   contractor's cost of, or the time required for, performance of any part of the work shall issue a
   change order under the procedures described in the contract.

   That, in the event that a dispute arises between the public entity and the contractor whether the

   contractor's cost of, or time required for, performance of any part of the work, the contractor shall
   not be excused from any scheduled completion date provided for by the contract, but shall

    commencement of construction under this Contract with respect to any such utility facilities that
    are not identified in the plans and specifications. Contractor shall not be assessed liquidated
    damages for delay in completion of the Project caused exclusively by failure of the County to
    provide for removal or relocation of such utility facilities. Locations of existing utilities provided
    by the County shall not be considered exact, but approximate within reasonable margin, and shall
    not relieve Contractor of responsibilities to exercise reasonable care nor costs of repair due to
    Contractor’s failure to do so. The County shall compensate Contractor for the costs of locating
    and repairing damage not due to the failure of Contractor to exercise reasonable care, and
    removing or relocating utility facilities not indicated in the plans and specifications with
    reasonable accuracy, and for equipment actually and necessarily idle during such work.

(b) This Article shall not be construed to preclude assessment against Contractor for any other delays
    in completion of the Work. Nothing in this Article shall be deemed to require the County to
    indicate the presence of existing service lateral or appurtenances whenever the presence of such
    utilities on the site of the Project can be inferred from the presence of other visible facilities, such
    as buildings, meter junction boxes, on or adjacent to the site of the construction.

(c) If Contractor, while performing work under this Contract, discovers utility facilities not identified
    by the County in the Contract’s plans and specifications, Contractor shall immediately notify the
    County and the utility company in writing. The cost of repair for damage to above mentioned
    visible facilities without prior written notification to the County shall be borne by the Contractor.

variance therewith, or should Contractor become aware of the development of conditions not covered
by Contract Documents that will result in finished Work being at variance therewith, Contractor shall
promptly notify the County in writing and any changes deemed necessary by the County shall be
adjusted as provided in Contract for changes in Work. If Contractor performs any work that it knew,
or through exercise of reasonable care should have known, to be contrary to such laws, ordinances,
rules or regulations, without such notice to the County, Contractor shall bear all costs arising
therefrom.

    necessary to cause any such lien or stop notice to be released or discharged immediately, or

    stop notice filed and/or served in connection with the Work.

Article 49.     MUTUAL RESPONSIBILITY OF CONTRACTOR

If Contractor or any of its subcontractors or employees cause loss or damage to any separate
contractor on the Work, Contractor agrees to settle with such separate contractor by agreement, if the

   Architect and Construction Manager, if any, and Inspector shall not be conclusive upon the
   County, but merely advisory.

(e) No payment by the County hereunder shall be interpreted so as to imply that the County has
    inspected, approved, or accepted any part of the Work. The final payment, if unencumbered,
    shall be made thirty-five (35) calendar days after the recordation of the Notice of Completion
    with the office of the County Recorder, subject to Article 69, entitled “Completion.”

(f) Unless otherwise provided, on or before making request for final payment of the undisputed
    amount due under Contract, Contractor shall submit to the County, in writing, all claims for
    compensation under or arising out of this Contract and a Summary of Claims, as required under
    Paragraph (b), above, that is final and cumulative. The final and cumulative Summary of Claims
    may not include any claims for damages that have been released by operation of the provisions of
    Paragraph (b), above, or Article 65, entitled “Contractor Claims.” The acceptance by Contractor
    of the payment of the final amount shall constitute a waiver of all claims for compensation and
    damages against the County under or arising out of this Contract, except those identified in the
    final and cumulative Summary of Claims.

(g) Prior to requesting final payment, Contractor must deliver the record drawings, Project
warranties, operations and maintenance manuals, a Settlement Agreement and Release of Claims
form, and all other documents required by Section 01700, Contract Closeout, to the Construction
Manager, if there is one, and the Architect.

Article 68.     CHANGES AND EXTRA WORK

(a) The County may, as provided by law and without affecting the validity of this Contract, order
    additions, deletions or revisions in the Work by issuance of written change orders or written
    directives during the progress of the Project, Contract Price and/or Contract Time being adjusted
    accordingly. All such work shall be executed under the conditions of the original Contract,
    except for changes to the Contract Time and/or Contract Price, which shall be made in
    accordance with Section 01028.

(b) In giving instructions, the County shall have authority to make minor changes in Work, not
    involving change in cost, and not inconsistent with purposes of building, by written directives.
    Otherwise, except in an emergency endangering life or property, no extra work or change shall be
    made unless pursuant to a written change order from the County, authorized by action of the
    Governing Board, and no claim for addition to Contract Time and/or Contract Price shall be valid
    unless so ordered.
                                                                          B34A-08-09 – SITE WORK

Article 69.     COMPLETION

(a) The County shall accept completion of the Work and have the Notice of Completion recorded
    when the entire Work shall have been completed to the satisfaction of the County. The Work may
    only be accepted as complete by action of the Governing Board.

(b) The County, at its sole option, may have the Notice of Completion recorded when the entire
    Work shall have been completed to the satisfaction of the County, except for minor corrective
    Work.

(c) If Contractor fails to complete the minor corrective Work prior to the expiration of the thirty-five
    (35) day period immediately following the recordation of Notice of Completion, the County shall
    withhold from the final payment an amount equal to 150 % of the estimated cost, as determined
    by the County, of the minor corrective work until such time as the Work is completed.

(d) At the end of such thirty-five (35) day period, if there are any items remaining to be corrected, the
    County may elect to proceed as provided in Article 70, entitled "Adjustment to Contract Price."

Article 70.     ADJUSTMENT TO CONTRACT PRICE

(a) If Contractor defaults or neglects to carry out the Work in accordance with the Contract
    Documents or fails to perform any provision hereof, the County may, after ten (10) calendar days
                                                                           B34A-08-09 – SITE WORK

    written notice to Contractor, and without prejudice to any other remedy it may have, make good
    such deficiencies.

(b) The County shall adjust the Contract Price by reducing the amount thereof by the cost of making
    good such deficiencies. If the County deems it inexpedient to correct work defective or not done
    in accordance with Contract, the County shall make an equitable reduction in the Contract Price.

Article 71.     CORRECTION OF WORK

(a) Should it be considered necessary or advisable by the County at any time before final acceptance of
    the entire Work to make an examination of work already completed by removing or tearing out the
    same, the Contractor shall upon request promptly furnish all necessary facilities, labor and materials.
    If such work is found to be defective in any respect due to fault of the Contractor or its
    subcontractors, it shall compensate the County for all expenses of such examinations and for
    satisfactory reconstruction. If, however, such work is found to fully meet the requirements of the
    Contract Documents, the additional cost of labor and material necessarily involved in the
    examination and replacement shall be paid by County.

(b) Contractor shall promptly remove from premises all work identified by the County as failing to
    conform with the Contract Documents, whether incorporated or not. Contractor shall promptly
    replace and re-execute its own work to comply with Contract Documents, without additional
    expenses to the County, and shall bear the expense of making good all work of other contractors that
    is destroyed or damaged by such removal or replacement.

(c) If Contractor does not remove such work within a reasonable time, fixed by written notice, the
    County may remove it and may store the material at Contractor’s expense. If Contractor does not
    pay expenses of such removal and any storage within ten (10) calendar days thereafter, the County
    may, upon ten (10) calendar days written notice, sell such materials at auction or at private sale and
    shall account for net proceed thereof, after deducting all costs and expenses that should have been
    borne by Contractor.

Article 72.     EXTENSIONS OF TIME AND DELAY DAMAGES

(a) Both Contractor and the County agree that the following delays will be considered "non-
    compensable" and, therefore, neither party shall collect damages from the other should they occur:
    acts of God as defined and in accordance with Public Contract Code Section 7105, acts of public
    enemy, acts of Government, fires, floods, epidemics, quarantine restrictions, against others, and
    unusually severe weather (normal seasonal rainfall shall not be considered reason for time
    extension), or delays of subcontractors due to such causes.

(b) “Excusable delays” refers to any delay due to unforeseeable causes beyond the control and
    without the fault or negligence of Contractor, caused by acts of the County or anyone employed
    by it or acts of another contractor in performance of a contract (other than this Contract) with the
    County.

(c) In accordance with Public Contract Code Section 7102, Contractor shall not be charged for
    liquidated damages because of non-compensatory or excusable delays.
B34A-08-09 – SITE WORK
PORTABLE SITE PREP FOR THE FOUNDRY COMMUNITY DAY SCHOOL
SANTA CLARA COUNTY OFFICE OF EDUCATION


(d) “Inexcusable delays” refers to any delay to the progress of the Work caused by events or factors
    other than those specifically identified in Paragraphs (a) and (b), above.

(e) If an inexcusable delay occurs concurrently with either an excusable delay or a non-compensable
    delay, the maximum extension of the Contract Time shall be the number of days, if any, that the
    excusable delay or the non-compensatory delay exceeds the period of time of the inexcusable delay.
    Additionally, no adjustment to the Contract Time shall be made unless such activities directly impact
    work on the critical path of the then current and updated Approved Construction Schedule as of the
    date on which such delay first occurs.

(f) Contractor shall within five (5) calendar days of the beginning of any excusable bidding or non-
    compensable delay, notify the County in writing of the causes of delay. The Contractor’s failure
    to notify the County within such five (5) calendar day period shall be deemed a waiver and
    relinquishment of such a claim of delay against the County.

(g) In the event that excusable delays cause damages to Contractor, Contractor’s damages shall be
    limited to direct, actual, and unavoidable additional costs of labor, materials or equipment
    directly resulting from such delay, and shall exclude indirect or other consequential damages.
    Except as expressly provided above, Contractor shall not have any other claim, demand, or right
    to adjustment of the Contract Price arising out of delay, interruption, hindrance or disruption to
    the progress of the Work. Adjustments to the Contract Price and the Contract Time, if any, on
    account of changes to the Work or suspension/termination for convenience of the Work shall be
    governed by the applicable provisions of the Contract Documents.

(h) Extensions of time shall apply only to the portion of Work affected by the delay, and shall not
    apply to other portions of Work not so affected.

Article 73.    PAYMENTS WITHHELD

(a) In addition to amounts that the County may retain or deduct pursuant to Articles 67 and 69 and
    Section 01027, Application for Payment, paragraph 1.04, the County may withhold a sufficient
    amount or amounts of any payment or payments otherwise due to Contractor, as in its judgment
    may be necessary to cover the following:

   1. One hundred percent (100%) of payments made by the County on behalf of Contractor or any
      subcontractors pursuant to Articles 47 or 70, Paragraph (a).

   2. One hundred twenty-five percent (125 %) of the amount claimed by subcontractors or the
      supplier of materials in the form of a stop notice.

   3. One hundred percent (100%) of the amount of any equitable reduction in Contract Price
      pursuant to Paragraph (b) of Article 70, entitled “Adjustment to Contract Price.”

   4. One hundred and fifty percent (150%) of the estimated cost of defective work that Contractor
      has not remedied.

   5. Liquidated damages assessed against Contractor.
                                                                            B34A-08-09 – SITE WORK

    6. Penalties or assessments required by law.

    7. The cost of material ordered by the County pursuant to Article 40, entitled "Materials and
       Work."

    8. One hundred percent (100%) of the estimated cost of completing of the Contract, if there
       exists a reasonable doubt that this Contract can be completed for the balance then unpaid to
       Contractor.
    9. One hundred and fifty percent (150%) of the estimated amount of damage caused to another
       contractor.

    10. The cost of site clean-up as provided in Article 53, entitled "Cleaning Up."

    11. The costs of responding to unjustified requests for information, in accordance with Paragraph
        (b) of Article 11, entitled “Architect—Submittals and Requests for Information.”

    12. The costs of premiums that the County pays on behalf of Contractor in accordance with
        Paragraph (c) of Article 24, entitled “Proof of Carriage of Insurance.”

(b) If the above grounds are, in the opinion of the County, removed by or at the expense of
    Contractor, payment shall be made for amounts withheld because of them.

(c) The County may apply such withheld payment amount for such claims or obligations at its
    discretion. In so doing, the County shall make such payments on behalf of Contractor. If any
    payment is so made by the County, then such amount shall be considered as a payment made
    under Contract by the County to Contractor and the County shall not be liable to Contractor for
    such payments made in good faith. Such payments may be made without prior judicial
    determination of the validity of the claim or obligation. The County will render Contractor an
    accounting of such funds disbursed on behalf of Contractor.

(d) As an alternative to payment of such claims or obligations, the County, in its sole discretion,
    may reduce the total Contract Price as provided in the Article 70, entitled "Adjustment to
    Contract Price."

Article 74.     EXCISE TAXES

If under Federal Excise Tax Law any transaction hereunder constitutes a sale on which a Federal
Excise Tax is imposed and the sale is exempt from such Federal Excise Tax because it is a sale to a
State or Local Government for its exclusive use, the County, upon request, will execute documents
necessary to show (1) that the County is a political subdivision of the State for the purposes of such
exemption and (2) that the sale is for the exclusive use of the County. No Federal Excise Tax for
such materials shall be included in any bid price.

Article 75.     TAXES

Bid price, and, in turn, the Contract Price, is to include any and all applicable sales taxes or other
taxes that may be due in accordance with Section 7051 of the Revenue and Taxation Code
Regulation 1521 of the State Board of Equalization, or any other tax code that may be applicable.

Article 76.     NO ASSIGNMENT

Contractor shall not assign this Contract, or any part thereof, without the prior written consent of the
County. Assignment without such prior written consent shall be null and void. Any assignment of
money due or to become due under this Contract shall be subject to a prior lien for services rendered
or material supplied for performance of work called for under said Contract in favor of all persons,
firms, or corporations rendering such services or supplying such material to the extent that claims are
filed pursuant to the Civil Code, Government Code, Labor Code and/or Code of Civil Procedure and
shall also be subject to deductions for liquidated damages or withholding of payments as determined
by the County in accordance with this Contract.

Article 77.     NOTICE AND SERVICE THEREOF

Any notice from one party to the other or otherwise under Contract shall be in writing and shall be
dated and signed by the party giving such notice or by a duly authorized representative of such party.
Any such notice shall not be effective for any purpose whatsoever unless served in one of the

    party giving notice, and sent by registered or certified mail with postage prepaid.

Article 78.     NO WAIVER

Duties and obligations imposed by the Contract Documents, and rights and remedies available
thereunder, shall be in addition to and not in lieu of or otherwise a limitation or restriction of duties,
obligations, rights and remedies otherwise imposed or available by law. No action or failure to act
by the County shall constitute a waiver of a right or remedy afforded it under the Contract
Documents or at law, nor shall such an action or failure to act constitute approval of or acquiescence
in a breach hereunder, except as may be specifically agreed in writing.

Article 79.     SEVERABILITY

In the event any provision of the Contract Documents shall be deemed illegal, invalid, unenforceable
and/or void, by a court or any other governmental agency of competent jurisdiction, such provision
                                                                           B34A-08-09 – SITE WORK

provisions hereof, shall in all other respects, continue in full force and effect.

Article 80.    HAZARDOUS MATERIALS

In the event the Contractor encounters on the site material reasonably believed to be asbestos or
polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) which has not been rendered harmless, the Contractor shall
immediately stop work in the area affected and report the condition to the County, Inspector and
Construction Manager, if there is one, in writing. The work in the affected area shall not thereafter
be resumed except by written agreement of the County and Contractor if in fact the material is
asbestos or polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) and has not been rendered harmless. The work in the
affected area shall be resumed in the absence of asbestos or polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB), or when
it has been rendered harmless, by written agreement of the County and Contractor.

Article 81.    MATERIAL SAFETY DATA SHEETS (MSDS)

Contractor is required to ensure Material Safety Data Sheets are available in a readily accessible
place at the Work site for any material requiring a Material Safety Data Sheet per the Federal
"Hazard Communication" standard, or Employees Right to Know Law. The Contractor is also
required to ensure proper labeling on substances brought onto the job site and that any person
working with the material or within the general area of the material is informed of the hazards of the
substance and follows proper handling and protection procedures. Two additional copies of the
Material Safety Data Sheets should also be submitted directly to the County.

Article 82.    CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT

(a) The Contractor understands that the County may employ a construction manager to perform
    construction management services on the Project. If the County employs a construction
    manager, the Contractor and subcontractors agree to cooperate with the construction manager; to
    coordinate work with others as required; and to furnish the construction manager without delay
    information or documentation requested.

(b) Contractor acknowledges that the Construction Manager, if any, has no contractual duty to
    Contractor, express or implied, and that Contractor is not an intended beneficiary of the
    Construction Manager’s contract, if there is one, with the County.

Article 83.    TIMELY PROGRESS PAYMENTS & INTEREST

California Public Contract Code Section 20104.50 sets forth the Legislature's intent for prompt
payment to contractors and established the following procedures for timely progress payments and
payment of interest:

1.   Any local agency which fails to make any progress payment within thirty (30) days after
     receipt of an undisputed and properly submitted payment request from a contractor on a
     construction contract shall pay interest to the contractor equivalent to the legal rate set forth in
     subdivision (a) of Section 685.010 of the Code of Civil Procedure.
B34A-08-09 – SITE WORK
PORTABLE SITE PREP FOR THE FOUNDRY COMMUNITY DAY SCHOOL
SANTA CLARA COUNTY OFFICE OF EDUCATION


2.   Upon receipt of a payment request, each local agency shall act in accordance with both of the
     following:

     a. Each payment request shall be reviewed by the local agency as soon as practicable after
        receipt for the purposed of determining that the payment request is a proper payment
        request.

     b. Any payment request determined not to be a proper payment request suitable for payment
        shall be returned to the contractor as soon as practicable, but not later than seven (7) days,
        after receipt. A request returned pursuant to this paragraph shall be accompanied by a
        document setting forth in writing the reasons why the payment request is not proper.

3.   The number of days available to a local agency to make a payment without incurring interest
     pursuant to Section 20104.50 shall be reduced by the number of days by which a local agency
     exceeds the seven-day return requirement set forth in paragraph 2 (b), above.

4.   A "progress payment" includes all payment due contractors, except that portion of the final
     payment designated by the contract as retention earnings.

5.   A payment request shall be considered properly executed if funds are available for payment of
     the payment request, and payment is not delayed due to an audit inquiry by the financial officer
     of the local agency.

SECTION 007300 – SPECIAL CONDITIONS

Article 1. GENERAL

These Special Conditions supplement and/or modify certain provisions of the General Conditions, and both
General and Special Conditions shall be deemed to be a part of every Section of Contract Documents
(Specifications), as if wholly embodied and repeated in every Section. The Contractor and subcontractor
shall be held to have read and thoroughly familiarized themselves with their content.

Article 2. CONTRACT TIME

1. Reference: Paragraph 1.03 of Section 002113, Instructions to Bidders, Paragraph 1.02 of Section
   003113, Preliminary Schedule and Paragraph 4 of the Agreement.

2. The duration of the contract shall be as listed in Section 003113, Preliminary Schedule.

Article 3. NOT USED

Article 4. SEPARATE CONTRACTORS AND ACCESS

1. The County may award, or may have awarded other contracts for additional work, and the
   contractor shall cooperate fully with such other contractors by scheduling his/her own work so
   that it properly relates to work to be performed under other contracts. The contractor shall not
   commit or permit any act, which will adversely interfere with the performance of work by any
   other contractor.

2. Contractors shall assume all liability, financial or otherwise, in connection with his/her contract
   and shall protect and save harmless the County and the construction manager, if there is one,
   from any and all damages or claims that may arise because of inconvenience, delay, or loss
   experienced by them because of the presence and operations of other contractors working within
   the limits of the same project.

3. The contractor shall be aware that work by other contractors will occur simultaneously in any
   given area or all areas. The contractor understands, in order to maintain the project completion
   schedule, that he may not have access to a given area to continue work due to the work of other
   contractors. The construction manager reserves the right to determine what areas are accessible
   to a contractor and when it is necessary to relocate or reschedule the work of the contractor.
   Relocation and rescheduling or work will be minimized. However, if either is necessary, the
   contractor agrees that no additional compensation for costs that may be incurred shall be allowed
   or processed by the construction manager or the County. In the event that the construction
   manager relocates or reschedules the work of a contractor, and that action creates an adverse
   affect on the Contractor’s scheduled critical path for the work of the contract, an authorized
   extension of the schedule by the construction manager or the County may be granted to extend
   the scheduled contract completion date without increase in compensation.

4. Contractor loss due to acts of another contractor:

   (a) If, through acts of neglect or unauthorized delays on the part of the contractor, any other
       contractor or any subcontractor shall suffer a loss from delays or damage to their work, this
       contractor shall settle with such other contractor or subcontractor without their involvement
       of the County or its construction manager. Settlement between contractor shall include any
       and all fiscal damages incurred as a result of delay and a joint written statement to the
       construction manager indicating the agreed upon number of calendar days of delay suffered
       by the affected contractor. The affected contractor will attach this joint letter to his request
       for the time extensions to the construction manager and must show specifically how the
       actions of the other contractor impacted his critical path activities. Such requests for a time
       extension shall be a zero (0) cost to the County. If the contractors agree that the construction
       manager (as agent for the County) shall determine a binding resolution to the dispute, both
       contractors shall submit all relevant documents and information to the construction manager
       for review. When determined in their opinion to be a fail and legitimate claim, the County
       reserves the right to backcharge on contractor for his/her delay or damage to another
       contractor. A change order will be the mechanism used to adjust contract amounts.

   (b) Failure of any contractor who is party to a dispute between separate contractors, to submit his
       facts and information regarding this position and assertions relevant to the dispute within
       sixty (60) days from discovery to the construction manager, shall not relieve such contractor
       from his obligation to abide to the resolution prescribed by the construction manager. The
       contractor making the discovery, but failing to report the dispute to the construction manager
       in writing within the prescribed time, will assume the responsibility for remedy of the
       conditions in question.

                and equipment are covered by appropriate property insurance and other
                arrangements to protect the County's interest therein, all of which must be
                satisfactory to the County.

1.7   BASIS OF PAYMENT

      A.     Unit Pay Quantities: When estimated quantity for specific portions of work is listed
             in Bid Form, quantity of work to be paid for shall be actual number of units
             satisfactorily completed in accordance with Plans and Specifications.

      B.     Lump Sum: When estimated quantity for specific portion of work is not indicated and
             unit is designated as lump sum, payment will be on a lump sum basis for work
             satisfactorily completed in accordance with plans and specifications.

      C.     Allowances: Allowance items will be paid for as provided in Section 011000,
             Summary of Work. Funds authorized for allowance work will not be released for
             contract payments unless additional work has been authorized in writing by the
             County.

      D.     Payment for all work included in Contract Documents shall be included in lump sum
             or unit price or prices bid, and no direct or additional payments will be made for any
             incidental work.

      E.     The County does not expressly, or by implication, agree, warrant, or represent in any
             manner, that actual amount of work will correspond with amount shown or estimated
                                                                      B34A-08-09 – SITE WORK

           and reserves right to increase or decrease amount of any class or portion of work, to
           leave out entire Bid Item or Items, or to add work not included in Bid, when in its
           judgment such change is in best interest of the County. No change in work shall be
           considered waiver of any other condition of Contract. No claim shall be made for
           anticipated profit, for loss of profit, for damages, or for extra payment whatever,
           except as otherwise expressly provided for in Contract Documents, because of any
           differences between amount of work actually done and estimated amount as set forth
           herein, or for elimination of extra Bid Items.

1.8   PROGRESS PAYMENTS

      A.   Progress payments will be made monthly.

      B.   Schedule of Values:

           1. Within thirty (30) calendar days from issuance of Notice of Award and prior to
              the Contractor's application for the first progress payment, the Contractor shall
              submit a detailed breakdown of its bid by scheduled work items and/or activities,
              including coordination responsibilities and project record document
              responsibilities. The Contractor shall furnish such breakdown, of the total
              Contract Sum, by assigning dollar values (cost estimates) to each applicable
              Progress Schedule network activity, which cumulative sum equals the total
              Contract Sum. The format and detail of the breakdown shall be as directed by the
              Architect to facilitate and clarify future progress payments to Contractor for
              direct contract work. This breakdown shall be referred to as the Schedule of
              Values.

           2. The Contractor's overhead, profit, insurance, cost of bonds and/or other financing,
              as well as "general conditions costs," (for example, site cleanup and maintenance,
              temporary roads and access, off site access roads, temporary power and lighting,
              security and the like), shall be prorated through all activities so that the sum of all
              the Schedule of Values line items equal the Contractor's total Contract Sum, less
              any allowances designated by the Architect.

           3. The Architect will review the breakdown in conjunction with the Progress
              Schedule to ensure that the dollar amounts of this Schedule of Values are, in fact,
              fair market cost allocations for the work items listed. Upon favorable review by
              the Architect, this Schedule of Values will be accepted for use by the Architect.
              The County and the Architect shall be the sole judges of fair market cost
              allocations.

           4. Any attempt to increase the cost of early activities, that is, "front loading," will be
              rejected by the County, resulting in a complete reallocation of monies until such
              "front loading" is corrected. Repeated attempts at "front loading" may result in
              suspension or termination of the work or refusal to process progress payments,
              until such time as the Schedule of Values is acceptable to the County.

                payment request may be processed at any time during the succeeding one month
                period, resulting in processing of Contractor's payment request being delayed for
                more than a day for day basis.

             2. Payment requests may include, but are not necessarily limited to the following:

                    above specifically fabricated for the project that are not yet incorporated into
                    the work.

             3. Contractor shall, at the time any payment request is submitted, certify in writing

                including updates and revisions. The certification shall be executed by a
                responsible officer of the Contractor.

             4. No progress payment will be processed prior to Architect receiving all requested,

                submission, including the Change Order number, and a description of the work
                activities, consistent with the descriptions of original work activities. Contractor
                shall submit a monthly Change Order status log to Architect.

             6. If Architect requires substantiating data, Contractor shall submit information
                requested by Architect, with cover letter identifying Project, payment request
                number and date, and detailed list of enclosures. Contractor shall submit one copy
                of substantiating data and cover letter for each copy Payment request submitted.
                                                                 B34A-08-09 – SITE WORK

     7. Monthly progress payments shall be made, based on total value of activities
        completed or partially completed, as determined by the County with participation
        of Contractor, and based upon approved activity costs. Accumulated retainage
        will be shown as separate item in payment summary. If Contractor fails or refuses
        to participate in construction progress evaluation with the County, Contractor
        shall not receive current payment until Contractor has participated fully in
        providing construction progress information and schedule update information for
        the County.

     8. No progress payment will be processed prior to Architect receiving all requested,
        acceptable prevailing wage and certified payroll information.

D.   Progress Payments:

        copy will be returned to Contractor with description of adjustments made. All parties
        will update percentage of completion values in the same manner, that is, express value
        of an accumulated percentage of completion to date.

     2. The payment request may be reviewed by Architect, Architect/Engineer and/or
        inspectors, for the purpose of determining that the payment request is a proper
        payment request, and shall be rejected, revised or approved by the Architect
        pursuant to the cost breakdown prepared in accordance with Section 1.7B of this
        Section.

     3. If it is determined that the payment request is not a proper payment request suitable for
        payment, Architect shall return it to the Contractor as soon as practicable, but no later
        than seven (7) days after receipt, together with a document setting forth in writing the
        reasons why the payment request is not proper.

     4. Pursuant to Public Contract Code Section 20104.50, if the County fails to make

        properly submitted payment request from a contractor, the County shall pay
        interest to the Contractor equivalent to the legal rates set forth in subdivision (a)
        of Section 685.010 of the Code of Civil Procedure. The thirty (30) day period
        shall be reduced by the number of days by which the County exceeds the seven

             6. Before any progress payment or final payment is made, the Contractor may be
                required to submit satisfactory evidence that Contractor is not delinquent in
                payments to employees subcontractors, suppliers, or creditors for labor and
                materials incorporated into work.

             7. The County reserves and shall have the right to withhold payment for any

                Contractor, shall not be understood as constituting in any sense acceptance of

                to replace unsatisfactory work or material, though unsatisfactory character of

                monies due or that may become due Contractor under Contract. If, on completion
                or termination of Contract, such monies due Contractor are found insufficient to
                cover the County's charges against him, the County shall have right to recover
                balance from Contractor or Sureties.

1.4   PROCEDURE

      A.     Contractor shall submit RFI to Architect. Architect shall respond by issuing a
             Clarification.

             1. If Contractor is satisfied with the Clarification and does not request change in
                Contract Sum or Contract Times, then the Clarification shall be executed without
                a change.

             2. If Contractor believes that the Clarification results in change in Contract Sum or
                Contract Times, Contractor shall notify Architect who may then deny request for
                change or issue RFP.

      B.     Contractor shall submit Notices of Concealed or Unknown Conditions to resolve
             unanticipated conditions incurred in the execution of the work. If Architect
             determines that a change in Contract Sum or contract Times is justified, Architect
             shall issue RFP. Architect shall issue Supplemental Instruction to Contractor.
             Contractor shall not proceed with Supplemental Instruction until Architect approves
             it in writing.

             1. If Contractor is satisfied with Supplemental Instruction and does not request
                change in Contract Sum or Contract Times, then Supplemental Instruction shall
                be executed without a Change Order.

             2. If Contractor believes that Supplemental Instruction results in change in Contract
                Sum or Contract Times, Contractor shall notify Architect. Architect may then
                deny request for change, cancel Clarification or issue RFP.

      C.     Responses by recipients shall be within a reasonable time.

      D.     Contractor shall respond to Architect's RFP within fifteen (15) working days by
             furnishing a complete breakdown of costs of both credits and extras; itemizing
             materials, labor, taxes, overhead and profit. Subcontract work shall be so indicated.

      E.     Upon approval of RFP, Architect will issue a Change Order directing Contractor to
             proceed with extra work.

      F.     Payment shall be made as follows:

     be revised or a proposed change order will be issued. The Contractor shall have no
     claim for additional compensation or extension of the schedule because of any such

           Contract schedule shall adhere to times specified in the Contract Special Provisions.

           1. The Architect is not required to accept an earlier (advanced) schedule.

           2. Contractor shall not be entitled to any compensation for any field or home office
              overhead in event agreement is not reached on an earlier (advanced) schedule and
              Contractor completes its work, for whatever reason, beyond completion date
              shown in earlier (advanced) schedule.

           3. A schedule showing the work completed in less than the Contract time, which has
              been accepted by the Architect, shall be considered to have Project Float. The
              Project Float is the time between the scheduled completion of the work and
              Contract Substantial Completion.

           4. Project Float is a resource available to both the Architect and the Contractor.

      E.   Contract schedule shall be basis for evaluating job progress, payment requests, and
           time extension requests. Responsibility for developing Contract CPM schedule and
           monitoring actual progress as compared to schedule rests with Contractor.

      F.   Failure of Contract schedule to include any element of the work or any inaccuracy in
           Contract Schedule will not relieve Contractor from responsibility for accomplishing
           the work in accordance with the Contract.

      G.   Float Ownership: Neither the Santa Clara County Office of Education nor the
           Contractor owns float.

             1. The Project owns the float. As such, liability for delay of the Substantial
                Completion Date rests with the party whose actions, last in time, actually cause
                delay to the Substantial Completion.

                a. For example, if Party A uses some, but not all of the float and Party B later
                   uses remainder of the float as well as additional time beyond the float, Party
                   B shall be liable for the time that represents a delay to the Substantial
                   Completion Date.

                b. Under this scenario, Party A would not be responsible for the time since it did
                   not consume all of the float and additional float remained; therefore, the
                   Substantial Completion Date was unaffected.

      H.     Progress Schedule shall be the basis for evaluating job progress, payment requests,
             and time extension requests. Responsibility for developing Contract schedule and
             monitoring actual progress as compared to Progress Schedule rests with Contractor.

      I.     Failure of Progress Schedule to include any element of the work or any inaccuracy in
             Progress Schedule will not relieve Contractor from responsibility for accomplishing
             the work in accordance with the Contract. Santa Clara County Office of Education's
             acceptance of Schedule shall be for its use in monitoring and evaluating job progress,
             payment requests, and time extension requests, and shall not, in any manner, impose
             a duty of care upon Santa Clara County Office of Education, or act to relieve
             Contractor of its responsibility for means and methods of construction.

1.2   ORIGINAL CPM SCHEDULE

     10. Activity durations shall be in work days.

C.   Adjustments to Original CPM Schedule: Within fourteen (14) calendar days after
     receipt of the Architect's response to the Contractor's Original CPM Schedule, the
     Contractor shall have adjusted the Original CPM Schedule submittal to address all
     review comments and resubmit for the Architects review.

     1. The Architect, within ten (10) calendar days from date that Contractor submitted
        the revised schedule, will either (1) accept schedule as submitted, or (2) advise
        Contractor in writing to review any part or parts of schedule which either do not
        meet Contract requirements or are unsatisfactory for the Architect to monitor
        Project's progress, resources and status or evaluate monthly payment request by
        Contractor.

     2. The Architect may accept schedule with conditions. At the first monthly meeting the
        CPM schedule update shall be revised to correct deficiencies identified.

     3. When schedule is accepted, it shall be considered as the "Original CPM
        Schedule" which will then be immediately updated to reflect the current status of
        the work.

             4. The Architect reserves right to require the Contractor to adjust, add to, or clarify any
                portion of schedule which may later be discovered to be insufficient for monitoring
                of work or approval of partial payment requests. No additional compensation will be
                provided for such adjustments, additions, or clarifications.

      D.     Acceptance: Acceptance of Contractor's schedule by the Architect will be based
             solely upon schedule's compliance with Contract requirements.

             1. By way of Contractor assigning activity durations and proposing sequence of
                work, Contractor agrees to utilize sufficient and necessary management and other
                resources to perform work in accordance with the schedule.

             2. Upon submittal of schedule update, updated schedule shall be considered
                "current" CPM schedule.

             3. Submission of Contractor's schedule to the Architect shall not relieve Contractor
                of total responsibility for scheduling, sequencing, and pursuing work to comply
                with requirements of Contract Documents, including adverse effects such as
                delays resulting from ill-timed work.

      E.     Submittal of Original CPM Schedule, and subsequent schedule updates, shall be
             understood to be Contractor's representation that the Schedule meets requirements of
             Contract Documents and that work shall be executed in sequence indicated on the schedule.

      F.     Contractor shall distribute Original CPM Schedule to Subcontractors for review and
             acceptance.

1.3   MONTHLY CPM SCHEDULE UPDATE SUBMITTALS

      A.     Following acceptance of Contractor's Original CPM Schedule, Contractor shall
             monitor progress of work and adjust schedule each month to reflect actual progress
             and any anticipated changes to planned activities.

             1. Each schedule update submitted shall be complete, including all information
                requested for the Original CPM Schedule submittal.

             2. Each update shall continue to show all work activities including those already
                completed.

             3. These completed activities shall accurately reflect "as built" information by
                indicating when activities were actually started and completed.

             4. Within seven (7) calendar days of receipt of above noted update, the Architect
                will either accept or reject monthly schedule update submittal.

                 a. If accepted, percent complete shown in monthly update will be basis for
                    Application for Payment by the Contractor. The schedule update shall be
                    submitted as part of the Contractor's Application for Payment.
                                                                      B34A-08-09 – SITE WORK

                                                   SANTA CLARA COUNTY OFFICE OF EDUCATION



               b. If rejected, update shall be corrected and resubmitted by Contractor before the
                  Application for Payment is submitted.

1.4   SCHEDULE REVISIONS

      A.   Updating the Schedule to reflect actual progress shall not be considered revisions to
           the Schedule. Since scheduling is a dynamic process, revisions to activity durations
           and sequences are expected on a monthly basis.

      B.   If the Contractor's revision is not accepted by the Architect, and the Contractor
           disagrees with the Architect's position, the Contractor has seven (7) calendar days
           from receipt of the Architect's letter, to provide a written narrative explaining its
           position. If the Architect still does not agree with the Contractor's position, the
           Architect's position shall govern, and the schedule shall be updated in accordance
           with the Architect's request. The Contractor's failure to respond in writing within
           seven (7) calendar days shall be contractually interpreted as acceptance of the
           Architect's position, and the Contractor waives its rights to subsequently dispute or
           file a claim regarding the Architect's position.

      C.   At the Architect's discretion, the Contractor can be required to provide subcontractor
           certifications for revisions affecting said subcontractors.

1.5   RECOVERY SCHEDULE

      A.   If the Schedule Update shows a substantial completion date fourteen (14) calendar
           days beyond the Contract Substantial Completion date, the Contractor shall submit to
           the Architect the proposed revisions to recover the lost time within seven (7) calendar
           days. As part of this submittal, the Contractor shall provide a written narrative for
           each revision made to recapture the lost time.

      B.   If the Contractor's revisions are not accepted by the Architect, the Contractor shall
           follow the procedures in Paragraph 1.4, above.

      C.   At the Architect's discretion, the Contractor can be required to provide subcontractor
           certifications for revisions affecting said subcontractors.

1.6   TIME IMPACT EVALUATION FOR CHANGE ORDERS, AND OTHER DELAYS

      A.   When the Contractor is directed to proceed with changed work, the Contractor shall
           prepare and submit, within fourteen (14) calendar days from the direction to proceed,
           a Time Impact Evaluation (TIE) which includes both a written narrative and a
           schedule diagram depicting how the changed work affects other schedule activities.
           The schedule diagram shall show how the Contractor proposes to incorporate the
           changed work in the schedule, and how it impacts the current schedule update critical
           path. The Contractor is also responsible for requesting time extensions based on the
           TIE's impact on the critical path. The diagram must be tied to the main sequence of
B34A-08-09 – SITE WORK

SANTA CLARA COUNTY OFFICE OF EDUCATION


             schedule activities to enable the Santa Clara County Office of Education to evaluate
             the impact of changed work to the scheduled critical path.

      B.     The Contractor shall be required to comply with the requirements of Paragraph 1.6A,
             above, for all types of delays such as, but not limited to, Contractor/Subcontractor
             delays, adverse weather delays, strikes, procurement delays, fabrication delays, and
             so on.

      C.     The Contractor shall be responsible for all costs associated with the preparation of
             Time Impact Evaluations, and the process of incorporating them into the current
             schedule update.

      D.     Once agreement has been reached on a TIE, the Contract Times will be adjusted
             accordingly. If agreement is not reached on a TIE, the Contract Times may be
             extended in an amount the Santa Clara County Office of Education allows, and the
             Contractor may submit a claim for additional time claimed by contractor.

1.7    TIME EXTENSIONS

        A.   The Contractor is responsible for requesting time extensions for time impacts that, in
             the opinion of the Contractor, impact the critical path of the current schedule update.
             Notice of time impacts shall be given in accordance with Article 4 and 8 of the
             Contract General Conditions (refer to AIA Document A201-1997, included in Part A
             of these Construction Documents).

        B.   Where an event for which the Santa Clara County Office of Education is responsible
             impacts the projected Substantial Completion date, the Contractor shall provide a
             written mitigation plan, including a schedule diagram, which explains how (for
             example, increase crew size, overtime, and so on) the impact can be mitigated. The
             Contractor shall also include a detailed cost breakdown of the labor, equipment and
             material the Contractor would expend to mitigate the Santa Clara County Office of
             Education caused time impact. The Contractor shall submit its mitigation plan to the
             Santa Clara County Office of Education within fourteen (14) calendar days from the
             date of discovery of said impact. The Contractor is responsible for the cost to prepare
             the mitigation plan.

        C.   Failure to request time, provide TIE, or provide the required mitigation plan will result in
             Contractor waiving its right to a time extension and cost to mitigate the delay.

        D.   No time will be granted under this Contract for cumulative effect of changes.

        E.   The Santa Clara County Office of Education will not be obligated to consider any
             time extension request unless requirements of Contract Documents are complied
             with.
        F.   Failure of the Contractor to perform in accordance with the current schedule update
             shall not be excused by submittal of time extension requests.
                                                                      B34A-08-09 – SITE WORK

      G.   If the Contractor does not submit a TIE within the required fourteen (14) calendar
           days for any issue, it is mutually agreed that the Contractor does not require a time
           extension for said issue.

      H.   Santa Clara County Office of Education will grant day-for-day non-compensable time
           extensions for delays to the critical path due to inclement weather.

O.   Accuracy, coordination, and completeness of submittals shall be sole responsibility of
     Contractor, including responsibility to backcheck comments, corrections, and
     modifications from the County's or Architect's review before fabrications. Submittals
     may be prepared by Contractor, subcontractors, or suppliers, but Contractor shall
     ascertain that submittals meet requirements of Contract Documents, while
     conforming to structural space and access conditions at point of installation.
     Architect's review will be only to determine if the items covered by the submittals
     will, after installation or incorporation in 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.
     Favorable review of submittal, method of work, or information regarding materials
     and equipment Contractor proposes to furnish shall not relieve Contractor of
     responsibility for errors therein and shall not be regarded as assumption of risks or
     liability by Architect or the County, or any officer or employee thereof, and
     Contractor shall have no claim under Contract on account of failure or partial failure
     or inefficiency or insufficiency of any plan or method of work or material and
     equipment so accepted. Favorable review shall be considered to mean merely that
     Project Management or the County has no objection to Contractor using, upon his
     own full responsibility, plan or method of work proposed, or furnishing materials and
     equipment proposed.

P.   Architect's review will not extend the means, methods, techniques, sequences or
     procedures of construction 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.

Q.   Submit complete initial submittal for those items where required by individual
     specification Sections. Complete submittal shall contain sufficient data to
     demonstrate that items comply with specifications, shall meet minimum requirements
     for submissions cited in technical specifications, shall include motor data and seismic
     anchorage certifications, where required, and shall include necessary revisions
     required for equipment other than first named. If Contractor submits incomplete
     initial submittal, when complete submittal is required, submittal may be returned to
     Contractor without review.

R.   It shall be Contractor's responsibility to copy, conform and distribute reviewed
     submittals in sufficient numbers for Contractor's files, subcontractors and vendors.

S.   After Architect review of submittal, revise and resubmit as required. Identify changes
     made since previous submittal.
     1. Begin no fabrication or work which require submittals until return of submittals
         not requiring resubmittal.

     2. Normally, submittals will be processed and returned to Contractor within fifteen
        (15) working days of receipt.

1.6   CONSTRUCTION WASTE MANAGEMENT OPERATIONS

      A.     Take a proactive, responsible role in management of construction waste and require
             all subcontractors, vendors and suppliers to participate in the effort. Establish a
             construction waste management program that includes the following categories:

             1. Waste prevention including minimizing packaging waste

             2. Salvage and reuse

             3. Salvage for resale and donation

             4. Recycling

             5. Disposal

      B.     Encourage waste prevention practices as an efficient waste management strategy
             when sizing, cutting, and installing products and materials. Salvage and reuse is a
             better waste management method than recycling because little or no reprocessing is
             necessary; less pollution is created when items are reused in their original form.
             Therefore a diligent effort shall be made to salvage and reuse product and materials.
             Waste materials that cannot be salvaged and reused yet have value as recyclables,
             shall be recycled. Only trash shall be transported to a landfill.

1.7   CONSTRUCTION WASTE MANAGEMENT PLAN

      A.     Perform a waste analysis to determine the types and quantity of construction waste
             anticipated and identify salvage for resale, salvage and reuse, recycling, and disposal
             options available. Within 10 days after contract award and prior to performing any
             demolition work, submit a Waste Management Plan for review and approval. The
             Waste Management Plan shall include the following:

             1. Waste Materials: A list of waste materials that will be salvaged for resale,
                salvaged and reused, and recycled. A list to address packaging materials
                including banding, crates, pallets, plastic film, polystyrene and cardboard
                (packaging waste consumes 15% of the waste stream).

             2. Haulers: Name, address and phone number for each hauler providing service.

             3. Facilities: Identification of each recycling facility to be utilized.

             4. Separation and Protection: Description of the method to be employed in handling
                waste materials and description of the method that will be used to protect
                recycled materials from contamination.

             5. Transportation: Description of the means of transportation of waste materials and
                the destination of the materials.
                                                                         B34A-08-09 – SITE WORK

            management program.

            1. Manager: The Contractor shall designate an onsite party (or parties) responsible
               for instructing workers and overseeing and documenting results of the Waste
               Management Plan for the Project.

            2. Distribution: The Contractor shall distribute copies of the Waste Management
               Plan to the Contractor, each Subcontractor, the County, and Architect.

            3. Instruction: The Contractor shall provide onsite instruction of appropriate
               separating, handling, and recycling, salvage, reuse, and return methods to be used
               by all parties at the appropriate stages of the project.

            4. Separation Facilities: The Contractor shall lay out and label a specific area to
               facilitate separation of materials for potential recycling, salvage, reuse, and
               return. Provide a site map that calls out areas identified. Provide the necessary
               containers and bins to facilitate the waste management program. Recycling and
               waste bin areas are to be kept neat and clean and clearly marked in order to avoid
               contamination of materials. Separate construction waste at the project site by one
               of the following methods:

                  a. Source Separated Method: Waste products and materials that are recyclable
                     are separated from trash and sorted into appropriately marked separate
                     containers and then transported to the respective recycling facility for further
                     processing. Trash is transported to a landfill.

                  b. Co-Mingled Method: Selected waste materials are placed into a single
                     container and then transported to a recycling facility where the recyclable
                     materials are sorted and processed and the remaining trash and waste
                     materials are handled separately.

           3.5 Warranty from General Conditions of the Contract for Construction, AIA
           Document A201-1997 (included in Part A of these Contract Documents). Contractor
           shall guarantee work done under Contract against failures, leaks or breaks or other
           unsatisfactory conditions due to defective equipment, materials or workmanship, and
           perform repair work or replacement required, at Contractor's sole expense, for period
           of one (1) year from date of Final Acceptance, as required by Article 3.5.

      B.   Neither recordation of final acceptance nor final certificate for payment nor provision
           of the Contract nor partial or entire use or occupancy of premises by Santa Clara
           County Office of Education shall constitute acceptance of work not done in
           accordance with Contract Documents nor relieve Contractor of liability in respect to
           express warranties or responsibility for faulty materials or workmanship.

      C.   Santa Clara County Office of Education may make repairs to defective work as set
           forth in Article 3.5 Warranty from General Conditions of the Contract for
           Construction, AIA Document A201-1997 (included in Part A of these Contract
           Documents), if, within 5 working days after mailing of written notice of defective
           work to Contractor or authorized agent, Contractor shall neglect to make or undertake
           with due diligence repairs; provided, however, that in case of leak or emergency
           where, in opinion of Santa Clara County Office of Education, delay would cause
           hazard to health or serious loss or damage, repairs may be made without notice being
           sent to Contractor, and Contractor shall pay cost thereof.

      D.   If, after installation, operation or use of materials or equipment to be furnished under
           Contract proves to be unsatisfactory to Architect, Santa Clara County Office of
           Education shall have right to operate and use materials or equipment until it can,
           without damage to Santa Clara County Office of Education, be taken out of service
           for correction or replacement. Period of use of defective materials or equipment
           pending correction or replacement shall in no way decrease guarantee period required
           for acceptable corrected or replaced items of materials or equipment.

      E.   Nothing in this Section shall be construed to limit, relieve or release Contractor's,
           subcontractors' and equipment suppliers' liability to Santa Clara County Office of
           Education for damages sustained as result of latent defects in equipment caused by
           negligence of suppliers' agents, employees or subcontractors. Stated in another
           manner, warranty contained in the Contract Documents shall not amount to, nor shall
           it be deemed to be, waiver by Santa Clara County Office of Education of any rights
           or remedies (or time limits in which to enforce such rights or remedies) it may have
           for defective workmanship or defective materials under laws of this State pertaining
           to acts of negligence.

3.0   EXECUTION

3.1   PREPARATION

      A.   General:

           1.     Prior to trenching, the Contractor shall excavate at locations specifically
                  indicated on the plans, where new lines cross other utilities of uncertain depth
                  and determine the elevation of the utility in question to ensure that the new
                  line will clear the potential obstruction.

           2.     The Contractor shall contact Program Manager and County for assistance in
                  locating existing utilities on Campus.

           3.     If after excavation, a crossing utility does present an obstruction, then the line
                  and grade of the new line will be adjusted as directed by the engineer to clear
                  the utility.

3.2   TRENCH EXCAVATION

      A.   General:

           1.     Excavation shall include removal of all water and materials that interfere with
                  construction. The Contractor shall remove any water which may be
                  encountered in the trench by pumping or other methods during the pipe
                  laying, bedding and backfill operations. Material shall be sufficiently dry to
                  permit approved jointing.

           2.     Excavation shall include the construction and maintenance of bridges
                  required for vehicular and pedestrian traffic, support for adjoining structures,
                  and where necessary, the rearrangement and repair of adjoining utilities.

           3.     It shall be the Contractor's responsibility to direct vehicular and pedestrian
                  traffic through or around his work area at all times.

             4.     The Contractor shall relocate, reconstruct, replace or repair, at his own
                    expense, improvements which are in the line of construction or which may be
                    damaged, removed, disrupted or otherwise disturbed by the Contractor.

                    This provision applies to all surface improvements of whatever nature such as
                    walls, fences, above-grade utilities, landscaping, paving, structures, or other
                    physical features whether shown on the Drawings or not and to all subsurface
                    improvements such as utilities which are indicated on the Drawings or
                    marked in the field. The Contractor shall connect such utilities to existing
                    systems and leave all in a workable and operating condition.

      B.     Existing Paving and Concrete:

             1.     Existing pavement over trench shall be sawcut, removed, and hauled away
                    from the job. Existing pavement shall be neatly sawcut along the limits of
                    excavations. If a longitudinal pavement joint or edge of pavement is located
                    within three feet of the limit of excavation, all intervening pavement shall be
                    removed and replaced after completion of backfilling.

             2.     Existing concrete over the trench shall be sawcut to a full depth in straight
                    lines either parallel to the curb or at right angles to the alignment of the
                    sidewalk. No section to be replaced shall be smaller than 30 inches in either
                    length or width. If the sawcut would fall within 30 inches of a construction
                    joint, expansion joint, or edge, or within 12 inches of a score mark, the
                    concrete shall be removed to the joint, edge, or mark..

             3.     Boards or other suitable material shall be placed under equipment outrigging
                    to prevent damage to paved surfaces.

      C.     Trench Width:

             1.     The maximum allowable trench widths at the top of the pipe shall be as
                    follows:

                    Pipe Type                       Trench Width (Max.)

           2.     For pipes 3 inch diameter and larger, the free working space on each side of
                  the pipe barrel shall not be less than 6 inches.

      D.   Open Trench:

           1.     The maximum length of open trench shall be the coordination between the
                  Construction Manager and the Contractor to establish the distance necessary
                  to accommodate the amount of pipe installed in a single day. No trenches
                  shall be left open at the end of the day.

           2.     Provisions for trench crossings and free access shall be made at street
                  crossings, driveways, water gate valves, and fire hydrants.

      E.   Excavation Bracing:

           1.     The excavation shall be supported and excavation operations conducted in
                  accordance with the California Industrial Accident Commission and
                  CAL/OSHA.

           2.     The Contractor shall, at his own expense, furnish, put in place, and maintain
                  such sheeting and bracing as may be required to support the sides of all
                  excavations (whether above or below the pipe grade), and to prevent any
                  movement which could in any way diminish the required trench section or
                  otherwise injure or delay the work. The sheeting and bracing shall be
                  withdrawn in a manner such as to prevent any earth movement that might
                  overload the pipe.

      F.   Excavated Material:

           1.     Excavated material not required for backfill shall be immediately removed
                  and properly disposed of in a legal manner by the Contractor.

           2.     Material excavated in parking lot shall be laid alongside the trench no closer
                  than two feet from the trench edge and kept trimmed to minimize
                  inconvenience to public traffic.

           3.     Provisions shall be made whereby storm water can flow uninterrupted in
                  gutters or drainage channels.

3.3   PIPE BEDDING

      A.   Bedding Excavation: The trench shall be excavated below the grade of the pipe
           bottom in accordance with the following minimum depths, whichever is greater:

           Pipe Type                        Depth
           Copper                           3"
           Galvanized Iron                  3"
           Plastic 2" and smaller           3"

             Cast-Iron                       6"
             Ductile-Iron                    6"
             Plastic                         6"
             Reinforced Concrete             6"
             Vitrified Clay                  6"

      B.     Stabilization of Trench Bottom: When the trench bottom is unstable due to wet or
             spongy foundation, trench bottom shall be stabilized with gravel or crushed rock.
             The County’s Representative will determine the suitability of the trench bottom and
             the amount of gravel or crushed rock needed to stabilize a soft foundation. Soft
             material shall be removed and replaced with gravel or crushed rock when ordered by
             the County’s Representative at no additional cost to the County.

      C.     Placement of Bedding Material: The trench bottom shall be cleaned to remove all
             loose native material prior to placing select backfill material. Sufficient select
             backfill material as specified in Paragraph 2.1.A (above) shall be placed in trench and
             tamped to bring trench bottom up to grade of the bottom of pipe. The relative
             compaction of tamped material shall be not less than 90 percent. It is the intention of
             these requirements to provide uniform bearing under the full length of pipe to a
             minimum width of 60 percent of the external diameter.

3.4   TRENCH BACKFILL

      A.     Initial Backfill:

             1.      Prior to trench backfill, the condition of the trench and laying of pipe must be
I                    Inspected and approved by the County’s Representative.

             2.      Select backfill material as specified in Paragraph 2.1.A (above) shall be used
                     for initial backfill. After the pipe has been properly laid and inspected, select
                     backfill material shall be placed on both sides of the pipe and compacted to
                     final depth as follows:

                     Pipe Type                                        Depth

                  pipe to avoid bending or distortional stress. After handtamping, the relative
                  compaction of the initial backfill material shall be not less than 90 percent
                  based on ASTM Test D1557, latest edition.

           4.     In landscaped areas, granular backfill shall be capped by at least 2 feet of
                  compacted native soil. In pavement areas, granular backfill shall be capped
                  by at least 1 foot of compacted native soil.

      B.   Pipe Detection Material: In trenches containing pressurized pipes, including ductile
           iron pipe, detectable tape shall be placed directly above the pipe and shall be
           connected to all valves, existing exposed detectable tape, and other appurtenances as
           appropriate.

      C.   Subsequent Backfill:

           1.     Above the level of initial backfill, the trench shall be backfilled with native
                  material from trench excavation or with imported select backfill material

           provided for all pressure pipe fittings, changes in pipe alignment/direction, and at all
           other points where there is a possibility of joint separation under pressure. Provide
           anchors and supports where necessary for fastening work into place. Make proper
           provisions for expansion or contraction of pipelines. Thrust blocks shall be placed
           between solid ground and the pipe or fittings to be anchored as detailed. Thrust
           blocks shall be as detailed on the Drawings, or where not detailed, in accordance with
           AWWA C600 and pipe manufacturer's recommendations.

      B.   Where concrete thrust blocking is not possible due to space limitations or unstable
           soil conditions, the Contractor shall provide an alternate means of thrust restraint.
           Acceptable methods include mechanical joint ductile iron retainer glands, restrained
           mechanical joints, and restrained push-on joints.

      C.   Tie rods shall not be used unless tie rod materials, tie rod arrangement, and corrosion
           protection methods have been specifically submitted and approved by the County’s

           sufficiently to remain in position and withstand the weight of the earth. Concrete
           shall not be disturbed or pressure loaded for at least five (5) days after placing unless
           otherwise permitted by the County.

3.7   HYDROSTATIC PIPELINE TESTING

      A.   After the pipe has been laid and backfilled it shall be subjected to hydrostatic pressure
           tests. Tests shall not be conducted until at least 12 hours have elapsed since pipe
           laying and at least five (5) days have elapsed since placing of concrete thrust blocks.
           The pipe shall be filled with water which shall remain without external application of
           pressure for 24 hours before tests are conducted.
           Tests conducted prior to completion of all permanent thrust restraints shall be
           considered as for the convenience of the Contractor and shall be repeated after all
           temporary thrust restraints have been removed and permanent thrust restraints have
           been completed.

      B.   Prior to hydrostatic testing, flush pipe system with fresh water until piping is free of
           dirt and foreign matter.

      C.   Pressure shall be applied by a pump and measured by a test gage. All necessary

             by the Contractor.

      D.     It is the Contractor's responsibility to ensure the release of air from the line during
             filling, as well as the prevention of collapse due to vacuum when dewatering the line.

      E.     For pressure test, use a hydrostatic pressure not less than 200 psi. The duration of the
             test shall not be less than 4 hours. The pressure shall not vary by more than 5 psi for
             the duration of the test.

      F.     Leakage Tests:

             1.      General: Leakage tests may be performed at the same time as pressure tests.
                     Leakage rate shall be measured for at least 4 hours with a certified water
                     meter, or other approved method. If requested, meter certification shall be
                     submitted to the County for approval prior to testing. Leakage shall not be
                     measured by a drop in pressure in a test section over a period of time.

             2.      There shall be no leakage at mechanical couplings and joints, tapping sleeves,
                     saddles, flanged joints, and copper piping. All visible leaks shall be stopped.

B.   Liquid Chlorine Solution Method: All foreign matter shall be flushed from mains,
     branch runs, hydrant runs, and installed services. Liquid chlorine solution shall be
     introduced at appropriate locations to assure uniform distribution through the
     facilities at the proper concentration. Installed copper service lines shall not be used
     to convey the concentrated solution to the mains. The sanitizing solution shall be
     retained in the facilities for a period of 24 hours after which each service, hydrant
     run, branch run and dead end shall be flushed until the residual chlorine is less than
     one part per million or is no greater than the concentration of chlorine in the water
     supplied for flushing.

      C.     HTH Tablet Method: Tablets are to be fastened to the inside top surface of each
             length of pipe using "Permatex No.1" no earlier than the day pipe is laid. Tablets
             shall not be installed in the pipe and left overnight before laying and shall not be
             accessible at any time for casual pilferage by the general public or by children.
             Tablets shall be stored in a hermetically sealed container. The new facilities are to be
             slowly filled with water. Air is to be exhausted from each dead end, branch run,
             hydrant run, and installed service. Water shall be retained for a period of 24 hours,
             after which each service, hydrant run, branch run and dead end shall be thoroughly
             flushed to clear foreign matter and until the residual chlorine concentration is less
             than one part per million or is no greater than the concentration of chlorine in the
             water supplied for flushing.

      D.     Bacteriological Testing:

             1.      Samples shall be gathered and tests conducted at the expense of the County,
                     Samples are to be taken at representative points as required by the County’s
                     Representative.

             2.      The new facilities shall remain isolated and out of service until satisfactory
                     test results have been obtained which meet the requirement of the California
                     Department of Public Health and until the County has accepted the results as
                     indicative of the bacteriological condition of the facilities. If unsatisfactory
                     or doubtful results are obtained from the initial sampling, the chlorination
                     process shall be repeated until acceptable test results are reported.

3.4   SURFACE RESTORATION:

      A.   Refer to Section 312000, Earth Moving

3.5   PIPELINE TESTING AND FLUSHING

      A.   New sections of sanitary sewer shall be air tested using the following procedures:

           1.     Test is conducted between two (2) consecutive manholes.

           2.     The test section of the sewer line is plugged at each end. One of the plugs
                  used at the manhole must be tapped and equipped for the air inlet connection
                  for filling the line from the air compressor.

           3.     Service laterals, stubs and fittings into the sewer test section should be
                  properly capped or plugged and carefully braced against the internal pressure
                  to prevent air leakage by slippage and blowouts. Connect air hose to tapped
                  plug selected for the air inlet. Then connect the other end of the air hose to
                  the portable air control equipment which consists of valves and pressure
                  gauges used to control the air entry rate to the sewer test section, and to
                  monitor the air pressure in the pipe line.

           4.     More specifically, the air control equipment includes a shut-off valve,
                  pressure regulating valve, pressure reduction valve and a monitoring pressure
                  gauge having a pressure range from 0-5 psi. The gauge shall have minimum
                  divisions of .10 psi and an accuracy of .40 psi.

           5.     Connect another air hose between the air compressor (or other source of
                  compressed air) and the air control equipment. This completes the test
                  equipment set-up. Test operations may commence.

           6.     Supply air to the test section slowly, filling the pipe line until a constant
                  pressure of 3.5 psi is maintained. The air pressure must be regulated to
                  prevent the pressure inside the pipe from exceeding 5.0 psi.

           7.     When constant pressure of 3.5 psi is reached, throttle the air supply to
                  maintain the internal pressure above 3.0 psi for at least 5 minutes. This time
                  permits the temperature of the entering air to equalize with the temperature of
                  the pipe wall. During this stabilization period it is advisable to check all
                  capped and plugged fittings with a soap solution to detect any leakage at these
                  connections.

           8.     If leakage is detected at any cap or plug, release the pressure in the line and
                  tighten all leaky caps and plugs. Then start the test operation again by
                  supplying air. When it is necessary to bleed off the air to tighten or repair a
                  faulty plug, a new five-minute interval must be allowed after the pipe line has
                  been refilled.

             9.     After the stabilization period, adjust the air pressure to 3.5 psi and shut-off or
                    disconnect the air supply. Observe the gage until the air pressure reaches 3.0
                    psi. At 3.0 psi commence timing with a stop watch which is allowed to run
                    until the line pressure drops to 2.5 psi at which time the stop watch is stopped.
                    The time required, as shown on the stop watch, for a pressure loss of 0.5 psi is
                    used to compute the air loss.

             10.    If the time, in minutes and seconds, for the air pressure to drop from 3.0 to
                    2.5 psi is greater than that shown in the following table for the designated
                    pipe size, the section undergoing test shall have passed and shall be presumed
                    to be free of defects. The test may be discontinued at that time.

             11     If the time, in minutes and seconds, for the 0.5 psi drop is less than that
                    shown in the following table for the designated pipe size, the section of the
                    pipe shall not have passed the test; therefore, adequate repairs must be made
                    and the line retested.

                    (For larger diameter pipe use the following: Minimum time in seconds = 462
                    x pipe diameter in feet).

             12.    For eight (8) inch and smaller pipe, only: if, during the five-minute saturation
                    period, pressure drops less than 0.5 psi after the initial pressurization and air
                    is not added, the pipe section undergoing test shall have passed.

             13.    Multi-pipe sizes: when the sewer line undergoing test is 8" or larger diameter
                    pipe and includes 4" or 6" laterals, the figures in the table for uniform sewer
                    main sizes will not give reliable or accurate criteria for the test. Where
                    multi-pipe sizes are to undergo the air test, compute the "average" size in
                    inches which is then multiplied by 38.2 seconds. The results will give the
                    minimum time in seconds acceptable for a pressure drop of 0.5 psi for the
                    "averaged" diameter pipe.

14.   Adjustment Required for Groundwater:

      a.     An air pressure correction is required when the ground water table is
             above the sewer line being tested. Under this condition, the air test
             pressure must be increased .433 psi for each foot the ground water
             level is above the invert of the pipe.

      b.     Where ground water is encountered or is anticipated to be above the
             sewer pipe before the air testing will be conducted, the following
             procedure shall be implemented at the time the sewer main and
             manholes are constructed.

             1)     Install a 1/2" diameter pipe nipple (threaded one or both ends,
                    approximately 10" long) through the manhole wall directly on
                    top of one of the sewer pipes entering the manhole with
                    threaded end of nipple extending inside the manhole.

             2)     Seal pipe nipple with a threaded 1/2" cap.

             3)     Immediately before air testing, determine the ground water
                    level by removing the threaded cap from the nipple, blowing
                    air through the pipe nipple to remove any obstructions, and
                    then connecting a clear plastic tube to the pipe nipple.

             4)     Hold plastic tube vertically permitting water to rise in it to the
                    groundwater level.

             5)     After water level has stabilized in plastic tube, measure
                    vertical height of water, in feet, above invert of sewer pipe.

             6)     Determine air pressure correction, which must be added to the
                    3.0 psi normal starting pressure of test, by dividing the
                    vertical height in feet by 2.31. The result gives the air
                    pressure correction in pounds per square inch to be added.

                    Example: if the vertical height of water from the sewer invert
                    to the top of the water column measures 11.55 feet, the
                    additional air pressure required would be

                    (11.55) = 5.0 psi
                    (2.31)

                    Therefore, the starting pressure of the test would be 3.0 plus 5
                    or 8.0 psi, and the 1/2 lb. drop becomes 7.5 psi. There is no
                    change in the allowable drop (0.5 psi) or in the time
                    requirements established for the basic air test.

      B.     After the line has passed the air test, it shall be balled and flushed with water to clean.
             A metal screen shall be used downstream at the point of connection to the existing
             system to collect and remove any rock or other debris that is flushed out during
             cleaning.

3.0   EXECUTION

3.1   TRENCHING, BACKFILLING, AND COMPACTING:

           A.      Refer to Section 31 23 33: Trenching, Backfilling, and Compacting.

3.2   PIPE INSTALLATION

           A.      General:

           1.      No pipe shall be laid until the County’s Representative inspects and approves
                   the condition of the bottom of the trench. Pipe laying shall proceed up grade
                   with the spigot section of bell and spigot pipe pointing in the direction of the
                   flow.

           2.      Split pipe shall be used through a manhole except for changes in pipe grade,
                   size, type or direction.

           3.      Each section of pipe shall be laid true to line and grade and in such a manner
                   as to form a close concentric joint with the adjoining pipe and to prevent
                   sudden offsets in the flowline. As the work progresses, the interior of the
                   storm drain shall be cleared of all dirt and debris. Where clearing after laying
                   is difficult because of small pipe size, a suitable swab or squeegee shall be
                   kept in the pipe and pulled forward past every joint immediately after jointing
                   has been completed. Pipe shall not be laid when the condition of the trench
                   or the weather is unsuitable.

      B.   Debris Control: The interior of the sewer pipe shall be kept clean of dirt and debris at all
           times. When work is not in progress, open ends of pipe and fittings shall be plugged.

3.3   POURED-IN-PLACE CONCRETE

      A.   Concrete shall be mixed in accordance with applicable provisions of Section 90 of the
           Caltrans Standard Specifications.

      B.   Construction of concrete structures shall conform to applicable provisions of Section
           51 of the Caltrans Standard Specifications. Unless otherwise noted herein, exposed
           surfaces of structure shall be Class 1 surface finish.

      C.   Curing shall conform to applicable portions in Section 90 of Caltrans Standard
           Specifications. No pigment shall be used in curing compounds. All work shall be
           subject to inspection. No concrete shall be placed until the Architect has approved
           the forms and reinforcement.

      D.   Concrete shall not be dropped freely where reinforcing bars will cause segregation
           nor shall it be dropped freely more than six feet. Spouts, elephant trunks or other
           approved means shall be used to prevent segregation.
