Conditions of Work

Each BIDDER must become fully familiar with site conditions relating to the construction of the project
and the employment of labor thereon. Failure to do so will not relieve the successful BIDDER of their
obligation to furnish all the labor, materials and equipment necessary to carry out the Work under this

or obstacles likely to be encountered, and other conditions affecting the Work.

BIDDER Qualifications

The BIDDER must include with the Bid a list of at least three (3) references for projects of
similar (or greater) size and cost. The references shall include project location, contact
name and phone number, and a brief description of services performed.

The CITY may make such investigations as it deems necessary to determine the ability of the BIDDER
and any proposed subcontractors to perform the Work, and the BIDDER shall furnish to CITY all such
information and data for this purpose as CITY may request. The CITY reserves the right to reject any
Bid, if the evidence submitted by, or investigation of, such CONTRACTOR or subcontractor, fails to
satisfy the CITY that such BIDDER or subcontractor is properly qualified to carry out the obligations of
the Contract and to complete the work contemplated therein.

Bid Security and Security for Faithful Performance

Simultaneously with delivery of the Bid, each BIDDER shall furnish a Bid Bond or certified check in the
amount of 5% of the total bid, including the Contingent Task. The successful Bidder will also be required

Americans… (2) Hispanic Americans… (3) persons who have origin in the Iberian Peninsula.. (4)
Women. (5) Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders; (6) American Indian.” An individual with a
disability is also a minority business enterprise as provided by Section 32-9e of the Connecticut
General Statutes. The above definitions apply to the contract compliance requirements by virtue
of Section 46a-68j-21 (11) of the Contract Compliance Regulations.

The awarding agency will consider the following factors when reviewing the bidder’s
qualifications under the contract compliance requirements:

(a)     the bidder’s success in implementing an affirmative action plan;
(b)     the bidders success in developing an apprenticeship program complying with Sections
        46a-68-1 to 46a-68-17 of the Regulations of Connecticut State Agencies, inclusive;
(c)     the bidder’s promise to develop and implement a successful affirmative action plan,
(d)     the bidder’s submission of EEO-1 data indicating that the composition of its workforce is
        at or near parity when compared to the racial and sexual composition of the workforce in
        the relevant labor market area; and
(e)     the bidder’s promise to set aside a portion of the contract for legitimate minority business
        enterprises. See section 46a-68j-30(10)(E) of the Contract Compliance Regulations.

                          ENGINEER.

         9.4              If requested by the OWNER or ENGINEER, the CONTRACTOR shall submit a detailed breakdown
                          of all bid prices within ten (10) working days of Notice of Award and prior to initiation of Work.
                          Such breakdown of bid prices, subject to approval of ENGINEER, shall form the basis for
                          adjustments to the contract price, if any.

         9.5              The OWNER reserves the right to increase or decrease the quantity of Work. Should such reduction
                          be made in the quantities of work originally called for, the CONTRACTOR shall have no claim for
                          loss of anticipated profits for that portion of the Work omitted.

         9.6              In the event of conflict between the Drawings and Specifications or within themselves, the priority of
                          documents outlined in Article 4.5 of the General Conditions shall apply.

                          indemnify and hold OWNER and ENGINEER harmless, and purchase and maintain such
                          comprehensive general liability and other insurance as will provide protection from claims set forth
                          in Article 5.3 of the General Conditions.

         9.8              The insurance required by Article ii of the General Conditions shall provide coverage for not less
                          than the amounts specified in the Insurance Requirements Section of the Information for Bidders.

         9.9              This Contract is subject to all laws of the United States of America and the Commonwealth of
                          Massachusetts and all amendments thereto; where any requirements contained herein do not conform

CHANGE ORDER INSTRUCTIONS


A. GENERAL INFORMATION

This document was developed to provide a uniform format for handling contract changes that affect Contract Price or
Contract Times. Changes that have been initiated by a Work Change Directive must be incorporated into a
subsequent Change Order if they affect Contract Price or Times.

Changes that affect Contract Price or Contract Times should be promptly covered by a Change Order. The practice of
accumulating change order items to reduce the administrative burden may lead to unnecessary disputes.

If Milestones have been listed, any effect of a Change Order thereon should be addressed.

For supplemental instructions and minor changes not involving a change in the Contract Price or Contract Times, a
Field Order may be used.

B. COMPLETING THE CHANGE ORDER FORM

ENGINEER initiates the form, including a description of the changes involved and attachments based upon
documents and proposals submitted by CONTRACTOR, or requests from CLIENT, or both.

Once ENGINEER has completed and signed the form, all copies should be sent to CONTRACTOR for approval.
After approval by CONTRACTOR, all copies should be sent to CLIENT for approval. ENGINEER should make
distribution of executed copies after approval by CLIENT.

If a change only applies to Contract Price or to Contract Times, cross out the part of the tabulation that does not
apply.




                                                                   CF-5

WORK CHANGE DIRECTIVE

INSTRUCTIONS
_____________________________________________________________________________________________

A. GENERAL INFORMATION

This document was developed for use in situations involving changes in the Work which, if not processed
expeditiously, might delay the Project. These changes are often initiated in the field and may affect the Contract Price
or the Contract Times. This is not a Change Order, but only a directive to proceed with Work that may be included in
a subsequent Change Order.

For supplemental instructions and minor changes not involving a possible change in the Contract Price or the
Contract Times a Field Order may be used.

B. COMPLETING THE WORK CHANGE DIRECTIVE FORM

ENGINEER initiates the form, including a description of the items involved and attachments.

Based on conversations between ENGINEER and CONTRACTOR, ENGINEER completes the following:

             METHOD OF DETERMINING CHANGE, IF ANY, IN CONTRACT PRICE: Mark the method to be used
             in determining the final cost of Work involved and the estimated net effect on the Contract Price. If the
             change involves an increase in the Contract Price and the estimated amount is approached before the
             additional or changed Work is completed, another Work Change Directive must be issued to change the
             estimated price or Contractor may stop the changed Work when the estimated price is reached. If the Work
             Change Directive is not likely to change the Contract Price, the space for estimated increase (decrease)
             should be marked “Not Applicable”.

             METHOD OF DETERMINING CHANGE, IF ANY, IN CONTRACT TIMES: Mark the method to be used
             in determining the change in Contract Times and the estimated increase or decrease in Contract Times, If the
             change involves an increase in the contract Times and the estimated times are approached before the
             additional or changed Work is completed, another Work Change Directive must be issued to change the
             times or CONTRACTOR may stop the changed Work when the estimated times are reached. If the Work
             Change Directive is not likely to change the Contract Times, the space for estimated increase (decrease)
             should be marked “Not Applicable”.

Once ENGINEER has completed and signed the form, all copies should be sent to the CLIENT for authorization
because ENGINEER alone does not have authority to authorize changes in Price or Times. Once authorized by the
CLIENT, a copy should be sent by ENGINEER to CONTRACTOR. Price and Times may only be changed by
Change Order signed by the CLIENT and CONTRACTOR with ENGINEER’s recommendation.

Once the Work covered by this directive is completed or final cost and times are determined, CONTRACTOR should
submit documentation for inclusion in a Change Order.

THIS IS A DIRECTIVE TO PROCEED WITH A CHANGE THAT MAY AFFECT THE CONTRACT PRICE OR
THE CONTRACT TIMES. A CHANGE ORDER, IF ANY, SHOULD BE CONSIDERED PROMPTLY.




                                                                   CF-7

                                            ARTICLE 1

                                    GENERAL PROVISIONS

1.1   BASIC DEFINITIONS

      1.1.1 THE CONTRACT DOCUMENTS
      The Contract Documents consist of the Form of Contract Agreement between Owner and
      Contractor, these General Conditions of Contract, any Supplementary or other Conditions,
      Drawings, Specifications, addenda issued prior to execution of the Contract, other documents
      listed in the Contract and Modifications issued after execution of the Contract. A Modification is
      (1) a written amendment to the Contract signed by both parties, (2) a Change Order, (3)
      Construction Change Directive or (4) a written order for a minor change in the Work issued by
      the Owner or its Consultant. Unless specifically enumerated in the Contract, the Contract
      Documents do not include other documents such as bidding requirements (advertisement or
      invitation to bid, Instructions to Bidders, sample forms, the Contractor’s bid or portions of
      addenda relating to bidding requirements).

      1.1.2 THE CONTRACT
      The Contract Documents form the Contract for Construction. The Contract represents the entire
      and integrated agreement between the parties hereto and supersedes prior negotiations,
      representations or agreements, either written or oral. The Contract may be amended or modified
      only by a Modification. The Contract Documents shall not be construed to create a contractual
      relationship of any kind (1) between the Owner’s Consultant (“Consultant”) and Contractor, (2)
      between the Owner and a Subcontractor or Sub-subcontractor or (3) between any persons or
      entities other than the Owner and Contractor. However, on behalf of the Owner, the Consultant
      shall be entitled to performance and enforcement of obligations under the Contract intended to
      facilitate performance of the Consultant’s duties.
      1.1.3 THE WORK
      The term “Work” means the construction and services required by the Contract Documents,
      whether completed or partially completed, and includes all other labor, materials, equipment and
      services provided or to be provided by the Contractor to fulfill the Contractor’s obligations. The
      Work may constitute the whole or a part of the Project.
      1.1.4 THE PROJECT
      The Project is the total construction and services of which the Work performed under the
      Contract Documents may be the whole or a part, and which may include work by the Owner or
      by separate contractors.
      1.1.5 THE DRAWINGS
      The Drawings are the graphic and pictorial portions of the Contract Documents, wherever
      located and whenever issued, showing tile design, location and dimensions of the Work,
      generally including plans, elevations, sections, details, schedules and diagrams.

      1.1.6 THE SPECIFICATIONS
      The Specifications are that portion of the Contract Documents consisting of the written
      requirements for materials, equipment, standards and workmanship for the Work, and
      performance of related services.




                                                GC-1
      1.1.7 THE PROJECT MANUAL
      The Project Manual is the volume usually assembled for the Work which may include the
      bidding requirements, sample forms, Conditions of the Contract and Specifications.
1.2   EXECUTION, CORRELATION AND INTENT

      1.2.1 The Contract Documents shall be signed by the Owner and Contractor as provided in the
      Contract. If either the Owner or Contractor or both do not sign all the Contract Documents, the
      Consultant shall identify such unsigned Documents upon request.
      1.2.2 Execution of the Contract by the Contractor is a representation that the Contractor has
      visited the site, become familiar with local conditions under which the Work is to be performed,
      and correlated personal observations with requirements of the Contract Documents.
      1.2.3 The intent of the Contract Documents is to include all items necessary for the proper
      execution and completion of the Work by the Contractor. The Contract Documents are
      complementary, and what is required by one shall be as binding as if required by all;
      performance by the Contractor shall be required to the extent consistent with the Contract
      Documents and reasonably inferable from them as being necessary to produce the intended
      results.
      1.2.4 Organization of the Specifications into divisions, sections and articles, and arrangement
      of Drawings shall not control the Contractor in dividing the Work among Subcontractors.
      1.2.5 Unless otherwise stated in the Contract Documents, words which have well-known
      technical or construction industry meanings are used in the Contract Documents in accordance
      with such recognized meanings.

1.3   OWNERSHIP AND USE OF CONSULTANT’S DRAWINGS, SPECIFICATIONS AND
      OTHER DOCUMENTS

      1.3.1 The Drawings, Specifications and other documents prepared by the Consultant are
      instruments of the Consultant’s service through which the Work to be executed by the Contractor
      is described. The Contractor may retain one contract record set. Neither the Contractor nor any
      Subcontractor, Sub-subcontractor or material or equipment supplier shall own or claim a
      copyright in the Drawings, Specifications and other documents prepared by the Consultant, and
      unless otherwise indicated the Consultant shall be deemed the author of them and will retain all
      common law, statutory and other reserved rights, in addition to the copyright. All copies of the
      Drawings, except the Contractor’s record set, shall be returned or suitably accounted for to the
      Consultant, on request, upon completion of the Work.

      1.3.2 The Drawings, Specifications and other documents prepared by the Consultant, and
      copies thereof furnished to the Contractor, are for use solely with respect to this Project. They are
      not to be used by the Contractor or any Subcontractor, Sub-subcontractor or material or
      equipment supplier on other projects or for additions to this Project outside the scope of the
      Work without the specific written consent of the Owner and Consultant. The Contractor,
      Subcontractors, Sub-subcontractors and material or equipment suppliers are granted a limited
      license to use and reproduce applicable portions of the Drawings, Specifications and other
      documents prepared by the Consultant appropriate to, and only for use in, the execution of their
      Work under the Contract Documents.




                                                 GC-2
      All copies made under this license shall bear the statutory copyright notice, if any, shown on the
      Drawings, Specifications and other documents prepared by the Consultant. The Contractor
      agrees to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless the Owner and Consultant from and against any
      and all claims arising out of or related to any unauthorized use or reuse of the Drawings, Plans,
      or Specifications by the Contractor, its Subcontractors, Sub-subcontractors, or any party
      obtaining the Drawings, Plans, or Specifications by or through any of them.

      1.3.3 Submittal or distribution to meet official regulatory requirements or for other purposes in
      connection with this Project is not to be construed as publication in derogation of the
      Consultant’s copyright or other reserved rights.

1.4   CAPITALIZATION

      defined, (2) the titles of numbered articles and identified references to Paragraphs,

                                             OWNER

2.1   DEFINITION

      2.1.1 The Owner is the entity identified as such in the Contract and is referred to throughout
      the Contract Documents as if singular in number. The term “Owner” means the Owner or the
      Owner’s authorized representative.

2.2   INFORMATION AND SERVICES REQUIRED OF THE OWNER

      2.2.1 The Owner shall furnish surveys describing physical characteristics, legal limitations and
      utility locations for the site of the Project, and a legal description of the site.

      2.2.2 Except for permits and fees which are the responsibility of the Contractor under the
      Contract Documents, the Owner shall secure and pay for necessary approvals, easements,
      assessments and charges required for construction, use or occupancy of permanent structures or
      for permanent changes in existing facilities.

      2.2.3 Information or services under the Owner’s control shall be furnished by the Owner with
      reasonable promptness to avoid delay in orderly progress of the Work.
      2.2.4 Unless otherwise provided in the Contract Documents, the Contractor will be furnished,
      free of charge, such copies of Drawings and Project Manuals as are reasonably necessary for
      execution of the Work.
      2.2.5 The foregoing are in addition to other duties and responsibilities of the Owner
      enumerated herein and especially those in respect to Article 6 (Construction by Owner or by
      Separate Contractors), Article 9 (Payments and Completion) and Article II (Insurance and
      Bonds).
2.3   OWNER’S RIGHT TO STOP THE WORK

      2.3.1 If the Contractor fails to correct Work which is not in accordance with the requirements
      of the Contract Documents as required by Paragraph 12.1 or persistently fails to carry out work
      in accordance with the Contract Documents or the instructions of the Owner or Consultant, then
      the Owner, by written order signed personally or by an agent specifically so empowered by the
      Owner in writing, may order the Contractor to stop the Work, or any portion thereof, until the
      cause for such order has been eliminated; however, the right of the Owner to stop the Work shall
      not give rise to a duty, on the part of the Owner to exercise this right for the benefit of the
      Contractor or any other person or entity, except to the extent required by Subparagraph 6.1.3.




                                               GC-5
2.4   OWNER’S RIGHT TO CARRY OUT THE WORK

      2.4.1 If the Contractor defaults or neglects to carry out the Work in accordance with the
      Contract Documents or the instructions of the Owner or Consultant, and fails within a seven day
      period after receipt of written notice from the Owner to commence and continue correction of
      such default or neglect with diligence and promptness, the Owner may, without prejudice to
      other remedies the Owner may have, correct such deficiencies. In such case an appropriate
      Change Order shall be issued deducting from payments then or thereafter due the Contractor the
      cost of correcting such deficiencies, including compensation for the Consultant’s additional
      services and expenses made necessary by such default, neglect or failure. Such action by the
      Owner and amounts charged to the Contractor are both subject to prior approval of the
      Consultant. If payments then or thereafter due the Contractor are not sufficient to cover such
      amounts, the Contractor shall pay the difference to the Owner.

       submittals, the Contractor represents that the Contractor has determined and verified materials,
       field measurements and field conditions, or will do so, and has checked and coordinated the
       information contained within such submittals with the requirements of the Work and of the
       Contract Documents.

       3.12.8 The Contractor shall not be relieved of responsibility for deviations from requirements of
       the Contract Documents by the Consultant’s approval of Shop Drawings, Data, Samples or
       similar submittals. The Contractor shall not be relieved of responsibility for errors or omissions
       in Shop Drawings, Data, Samples or similar submittals by the Consultant’s approval thereof.
       3.12.9 The Contractor shall direct specific attention, in writing or on resubmitted Shop

       3.14.2 The Contractor shall not damage or endanger a portion of the Work or fully or partially
       completed construction of the Owner’s own forces or of other Contractors by cutting, patching,
       excavating or otherwise altering such construction by other Contractor’s or by the Owner’s own
       forces except with written consent of the Construction Manager, Owner and such other
       Contractors: such consent shall not be unreasonably withheld. The Contractor shall not

       such defense or loss when a particular design, process or product of a particular manufacturer or
       manufacturers is specifically identified by the Contract Documents. However, if the Contractor
       has reason to believe that the required design, process or product is an infringement of a patent,
       the Contractor shall be responsible for such loss unless such information is promptly furnished to
       the Consultant.
3.18   INDEMNIFICATION

       3.18.1 To the fullest extent permitted by law, the Contractor shall indemnify and hold harmless
       the Owner, Consultant, Consultant’s consultants, and agents and employees of any of them from
       and against claims, damages, losses and expenses, including but not limited to attorneys’ fees,
       arising out of or resulting from performance of the Work, provided that such claim, damage, loss
       or expense is attributable to bodily injury, sickness, disease or death, or to injury to or destruction
       of tangible property (other than the Work itself) including loss of use resulting there from
       regardless of whether or not such claim, damage, loss or expense is caused in part by a party
       indemnified hereunder. Such obligation shall not be construed to negate, abridge, or reduce other

       in this Paragraph.

       payable by or for the Contractor or a Subcontractor under workers’ or workmen’s compensation
       acts, disability benefit acts or other employee benefit acts.

      4.2.1 The Consultant will provide administration of the Contract as described in the Contract
      Documents, and will be the Owner’s representative (1) during construction (2) until final
      payment is due and (3) with the Owner’s concurrence, from time to time during the correction
      period described in Paragraph 12.1. The Consultant will advise and consult with the Owner. The
      Consultant will have authority to act on behalf of the Owner only to the extent provided in the
      Contract Documents, unless otherwise modified by written instrument in accordance with other
      provisions of the Contract.

      4.2.2 The Consultant will visit the site at intervals appropriate to the stage of the Work to
      become generally familiar with the progress and quality of the completed Work and to determine,
      in general, if the Work is being performed in a manner indicating that the Work, when
      completed, will be in accordance with the Contract Documents. However, the Consultant will not
      be required to make exhaustive or continuous on-site inspections to check quality or quantity of
      the Work. On the basis of on-site observations as an architect, the Consultant will keep the
      Owner informed of progress of the Work, and will endeavor to guard the Owner against defects
      and deficiencies in the Work.

      4.2.3 The Consultant will not have control over or charge of and will not be responsible for
      construction means, methods, techniques, sequences or procedures, or for safety precautions and
      programs in connection with the Work, since these are solely the Contractor’s responsibility as
      provided in Paragraph 3.3. The Consultant will not be responsible for the Contractor’s failure to
      carry out the Work in accordance with the Contract Documents. The Consultant will not have
      control over or charge of and will not be responsible for acts or omissions of the Contractor,
      Subcontractors, or their agents or employees, or of any other persons performing portions of the
      Work.

      4.2.4 Except as otherwise provided in the Contract Documents or when direct communications
      have been specially authorized, the Owner and Contractor shall communicate through the
      Consultant. Communications by and with the Consultant’s Subconsultants shall be through the

      the Contractor. Communications by and with separate contractors shall be through the Owner.

4.2.5 Based on the Consultant’s observations and evaluations of the Contractor’s Applications
for Payment, the Consultant will review and certify the amounts due the Contractor and will
issue Certificates for Payment in such amounts.

4.2.6 The Consultant will have authority to reject Work which does not conform to the
Contract Documents. Whenever the Consultant considers it necessary or advisable for
implementation of the intent of the Contract Documents, the Consultant will have authority to
require additional inspection or testing of the Work in accordance with Subparagraphs 13.5.2 and
13.5.3, whether or not such Work is fabricated, installed or completed. However, neither this
authority of the Consultant nor a decision made in good faith either to exercise or not to exercise
such authority shall give rise to a duty or responsibility of the Consultant to the Contractor,
Subcontractors, material and equipment suppliers, their agents or employees, or other persons
performing portions of the Work.

4.2.7 The Consultant will review and approve or take other appropriate action upon the
Contractor’s submittals such as Shop Drawings, Data and Samples, but only for the limited
purpose of checking for conformance with information given and the design concept and
performance specifications expressed in the Contract Documents. The Consultant’s action will
be taken with such reasonable promptness as to cause no delay in the Work or in the activities of
the Owner, Contractor or separate contractors, while allowing sufficient time in the Consultant’s
professional judgment to permit adequate review. Review of such submittals is not conducted for
the purpose of determining the accuracy and completeness of other details such as dimensions
and quantities, or for substantiating instructions for installation or performance of equipment or
systems, all of which remain the responsibility of the Contractor as required by the Contract
Documents. The Consultant’s review of the Contractor’s submittals shall not relieve the
Contractor of the obligations under Paragraphs 3.3, 3.5 and 3.12. The Consultant’s review shall
not constitute approval of safety precautions or, unless otherwise specifically stated by the
Consultant, of any construction means, methods, techniques, sequences or procedures. The
Consultant’s approval of a specific item shall not indicate approval of an assembly of which the
item is a component.
4.2.8 The Consultant will prepare Change Orders and Change Directives, and may authorize
minor changes in the Work as provided in Paragraph 7.4.1
4.2.9 The Consultant will conduct inspections to determine the date or dates of Substantial

Owner’s review and records written warranties and related documents required by the Contract
and assembled by the Contractor, and will issue a final Certificate for Payment upon compliance
with the requirements of the Contract Documents.

4.2.10 If the Owner and Consultant agree, the Consultant will provide one or more project
representatives to observe the Work. The duties, responsibilities and limitations of authority of
such project representatives shall be as set forth in an exhibit to be incorporated in the Contract
Documents.

      4.2.11 The Consultant will interpret and decide matters concerning performance under and
      requirements of the Contract Documents on written request of either the Owner or Contractor.
      The Consultant’s response to such requests will be made with reasonable promptness and within
      any time limits agreed upon. If no agreement is made concerning the time within which
      interpretations required of the Consultant shall be furnished in compliance with this Paragraph
      4.2, then delay shall not be recognized on account of failure by the Consultant to furnish such
      interpretations until 15 days after written request is made for them.

      4.2.12 Interpretations and decisions of the Consultant will be consistent with the intent of and
      reasonably inferable from the Contract Documents and will be in writing or in the form of
      drawings. When making such interpretations and decisions, the Consultant will endeavor to
      secure faithful performance by both Owner and Contractor, will not show partiality to either and
      will not be liable for results of interpretations or decisions so rendered in good faith.
      4.2.13 Whenever in the performance of its responsibilities under this Article, the Consultant is
      required or requested to make a decision on an interpretation of specifications in the Contract
      Documents, on an approval of equipment, material or any other approval, or on progress of the
      Work, the Consultant shall make such decision promptly and, in any event, no less than thirty
      days after the written submission of the matter for decision; provided that if such decision
      requires extended investigation and study, the Consultant shall, within thirty days after the
      receipt of the submission, give the party making the submission written notice of the reasons why
      the decision cannot be made within the thirty day period and the date by which the decision will
      be made.

      4.3.1 Definition. A Claim is a demand or assertion by one of the parties seeking, as a matter of
      right, adjustment or interpretation of Contract terms, payment of money, extension of time or
      other relief with respect to the terms of the Contract. The term “Claim” also includes other
      disputes and matters in question between the Owner and Contractor arising out of or relating to
      the Contract. Claims must be made by written notice. The responsibility to substantiate Claims
      shall rest with the party making the Claim.
      4.3.2 Decision of Consultant. Claims, including those alleging an error or omission by the
      Consultant, shall be referred initially to the Consultant for action as provided in Paragraph 4.4. A
      decision by the Consultant, as provided in Subparagraph 4.4.4, shall be required as a condition
      precedent to litigation of a Claim between the Contractor and Owner as to all such matters
      arising prior to the date final payment is due, regardless of (1) whether such matters relate to
      execution and progress of the Work or (2) the extent to which the Work has been completed. The
      decision by the Consultant in response to a Claim shall not be a condition precedent to litigation
      in the event (1) the position of Consultant is vacant, (2) the Consultant has not received evidence
      or has failed to render a decision within agreed time limits, (3) the Consultant has failed to take
      action required under Subparagraph 4.4.4 within 30 days after the Claim is made, (4) 45 days
      have passed after the Claim has been referred to the Consultant or (5) the Claim relates to a
      mechanic’s lien.

      4.3.3 Time Limits on Claims. Claims by either party, must be made within 21 days after
      occurrence of the event giving rise to such Claim or within 21 days after the claimant first
      recognizes the condition giving rise to the Claim, whichever is later. Claims must be made by
      written notice. An additional Claim made after the initial Claim has been implemented by
      Change Order would not be considered unless submitted in a timely manner.




                                                GC-17
4.3.4 Continuing Contract Performance. Pending final resolution of a Claim, unless otherwise
agreed in writing the Contractor shall proceed diligently with performance of the Contract and
the Owner shall continue to make payments in accordance with the Contract
Documents.

4.3.5 Waiver of Claims: Final Payment. The making of final payment shall constitute a waiver
of Claims by the Owner except those arising from:

   1. Liens, Claims, security interests or encumbrances arising out of the Contract and I
      unsettled;

   2. Failure of the Work to comply with the requirements of the Contract Documents; or

   3. Terms of special warranties required by the Contract Documents.

4.3.6 Claims for Concealed or Unknown Conditions. If conditions are encountered at the site
which are (1) concealed physical conditions which differ materially from those indicated in the
contract Documents or (2) unknown physical conditions of an unusual nature, which differ
materially from those ordinarily found to exist and generally recognized as inherent in activities
of the character provided for in the Contract Documents, then notice by the observing party shall
be given to the other party promptly before conditions are disturbed and in no event later than 21
days after first observance of the conditions. The Consultant will promptly investigate such
conditions and, if they differ materially and cause an increase or decrease in the Contractor’s cost
of, or time required for, performance of any part of the Work, will recommend an equitable
adjustment in the Contract Sum or Contract Time, or both. If the Consultant determines that the
conditions at the site are not materially different from those indicated in the Contract Documents
and that no change in the terms of the Contract is justified, the Consultant shall so notify the
Owner and Contractor in writing, stating the reasons. Claims by either party in opposition to
such determination must be made within 21 days after the Consultant has given notice of the
decision. If the Owner and Contractor cannot agree on an adjustment in the Contract Sum or
Contract Time, the adjustment shall be referred to the Consultant for initial determination,
subject to further proceedings pursuant to Paragraph 4.4.

4.3.7 Claims for Additional Cost. If the Contractor wishes to make Claim for an increase in the
Contract Sum, written notice as provided herein shall be given before proceeding to execute the
Work. Prior notice is not required for Claims relating to an emergency endangering life or
property arising under Paragraph 10.3. If the Contractor believes additional cost is involved for
reasons including but not limited to (1) a written interpretation from the Consultant, (2) an order
by the Owner to stop the Work where the Contractor was not at fault, (3) a written order for a
minor change in the Work issued by the Consultant, (4) failure of payment by the Owner, (5)
termination of the Contract by the Owner, (6) Owner’s suspension or (7) other reasonable
grounds, a Claim shall be filed in accordance with the procedure established herein.




                                          GC-18
4.3.8 CLAIMS FOR ADDITIONAL TIME

             4.3.8.1 If the Contractor wishes to make Claim for an increase in the Contract Time,
             written notice as provided herein shall be given. The Contractor’s Claim shall include an
             estimate of cost and of probable effect of delay on progress of the Work. In the case of a
             continuing delay only one Claim is necessary.

             4.3.8.2 If adverse weather conditions are the basis for a Claim for additional time, such
             Claim shall be documented by, data substantiating that weather conditions were abnormal
             for the period of time and could not have been reasonably anticipated, and that weather
             conditions had an adverse effect on the scheduled construction.

      4.3.9 Injury or Damage to Person or Property. If either party to the Contract suffers injury or
      damage to person or property because of an act or omission of the other party, of any of the other
      party’s employees or agents, or of others for whose acts such party is legally liable, written
      notice of such injury or damage, whether or not insured, shall be given to the other party within a
      reasonable time not exceeding 21 days after first observance. The notice shall provide sufficient
      detail to enable the other party to investigate the matter. If a Claim for additional cost or time
      related to this Claim is to be asserted, it shall be filed as provided in Subparagraphs 4.3.7 or
      4.3.8.

4.4   RESOLUTION OF CLAIMS AND DISPUTES

      4.4.1 The Consultant will review Claims and take one or more of the following preliminary
      actions within ten days of receipt of a Claim: (1) request additional supporting data from the
      claimant, (2) submit a schedule to the parties indicating when the Consultant expects to take
      action, (3) reject the Claim in whole or in part, stating reasons for rejection, (4) recommend
      approval of the Claim by the other party or (5) suggest a compromise. The Consultant may also,
      but is not obligated to, notify the surety, if any, of the nature and amount of the Claim.

      4.4.2 If a Claim has been resolved, the Consultant will prepare or obtain appropriate
      documentation.

      4.4.3 If a Claim has not been resolved, the party making the Claim shall, within ten days after
      the Consultant’s preliminary response, take one or more of the following actions: (1) submit
      additional supporting data requested by the Consultant, (2) modify the initial Claim or (3) notify
      the Consultant that the initial Claim stands.

      4.4.4 If a Claim has not been resolved after consideration of the foregoing and of further
      evidence presented by the parties or requested by the Consultant, the Consultant will notify the
      parties in writing that the Consultant’s decision will be made within seven days. Upon expiration
      of such time period, the Consultant will render to the parties the Consultant’s written decision
      relative to the Claim, including any change in the Contract Sum or Contract Time or both. If
      there is a surety and there appears to be a possibility of a Contractor’s default, the Consultant
      may, but is not obligated to, notify the surety and request the surety’s assistance in resolving the
      controversy.

4.5   PRIORITY OF CONTRACT DOCUMENTS

      4.5.1 If, during the performance of the Work, the Contractor finds a conflict, error or
      discrepancy in the Contract Documents, the Contractor shall so report to the Owner in writing at
      once and before proceeding with the affected work shall obtain a written interpretation or
      clarification from the Owner. The Owner will promptly investigate the matter. Until such
      interpretation or clarification is obtained from the Owner, any work done by the Contractor
      which is directly or indirectly affected by same, will be at the Contractor’s risk and the
      Contractor shall bear all resultant costs or delays.

      4.5.2 In resolving conflicts, errors or discrepancies, the Contract Documents shall be given
      preferences as may be reasonably inferred by the Owner as being consistent with their overall
      intent and required to produce the intended result. Subject to such determination by the Owner,
      the Contract Documents shall be given preference in the following order: Change Orders,
      Agreement, Notice to Proceed, Notice of Award, Addenda, Supplementary Conditions, General
      Conditions of Contract, General Requirements, Division 2 through 16 of the Specifications and
      Drawings, Advertisement for Bids, Instructions to Bidders, the Contractor’s Bid, Qualification
      Submittals, Bonds, Insurance Certificates.
      4.5.3 If the issue of priority involves Divisions 2 through 16 of the Specifications and the
      Drawings, in all cases, figured dimensions shall govern over scaled dimensions, but work not
      dimensioned shall be as directed by the Owner, and work not particularly shown, identified,
      sized, or located shall be the same as similar parts that are shown or specified. Detail Drawings
      shall govern over general Drawings, larger scale Drawings take precedence over smaller scale
      Drawings, Change Order Drawings govern over Contract Drawings, and Contract Drawings
      govern over Shop Drawings. In all cases where notes, specifications, dimensions, diagrams,
      details or schedules in the Specifications and the Drawings, conflict, the higher performance
      requirement shall be furnished by the Contractor, unless otherwise directed by the Owner.
      4.5.4 If the issue of priority is due to a conflict or discrepancy between the provisions of the
      Contract Documents and any referenced standard specification, manual, or code of any technical
      society, organization or association, the provisions of the Contract Documents will take
      precedence if they are more stringent or presumptively cause a higher level of performance. If
      there is any conflict or discrepancy between standard specifications, manuals, or codes of any
      technical society, organization or association, or between Laws or Regulations, the higher
      performance requirement shall be binding on the Contractor, unless otherwise directed by the
      Owner.
      4.5.5 In accordance with the intent of the Contract Documents, the Contractor accepts the fact
      that compliance with the priority order specified shall not justify an increase in Contract Price or
      an extension in Contract Time nor limit in any way, the Contractor’s responsibility to comply
      with all Laws and Regulations at all times.

                                       SUBCONTRACTORS

5.1   DEFINITIONS

      5.1.1 Except as any be otherwise provided in Sub-subparagraph 9.6.11, a Subcontractor is a
      person or entity who has a direct contract with the Contractor to perform a portion of the Work at
      the site. The term “Subcontractor” is referred to throughout the Contract Documents as if
      singular in number and means a Subcontractor or an authorized representative of the
      Subcontractor. The term “Subcontractor” does not include a separate contractor or subcontractors
      of a separate contractor.
      5.1.2 A Sub-subcontractor is a person or entity who has a direct or indirect contract with a
      Subcontractor to perform a portion of the Work at the site. The term “Sub-subcontractor” is
      referred to throughout the Contract Documents as if singular in number and means a Sub-
      subcontractor or an authorized representative of the Sub-subcontractor.

5.2   AWARD OF SUBCONTRACTS AND OTHER CONTRACTS FOR PORTIONS OF THE
      WORK

      5.2.1 Unless otherwise stated in the Contract Documents or the bidding requirements, the
      Contractor, as soon as practicable after award of the Contract, shall furnish in writing to the
      Owner through the Consultant the names of persons or entities (including those who are to
      furnish materials or equipment fabricated to a special design) proposed for each principal portion
      of the Work. The Consultant will promptly reply to the Contractor in writing stating whether or
      not the Owner or the Consultant, after due investigation, has reasonable objection to any such
      proposed person or entity. Failure of the Owner or Consultant to reply promptly shall constitute
      notice of no reasonable objection.
      5.2.2 The Contractor shall not contract with a proposed person or entity to whom the Owner or
      Consultant has made reasonable and timely objection. The Contractor shall not be required to
      contract with anyone to whom the Contractor has made reasonable objection.
      5.2.3 If the Owner or Consultant has reasonable objection to a person or entity proposed by the
      Contractor, the Contractor shall propose another to whom the Owner or Consultant has no
      reasonable objection. The Contract Sum shall be increased or decreased by the difference in cost
      occasioned by such change and an appropriate Change Order shall be issued. However, no
      increase in the Contract Sum shall be allowed for such change unless the Contractor has acted
      promptly, and responsively in submitting names as required.
      5.2.4 The Contractor shall not change a Subcontractor, person or entity previously selected if
      the Owner or Consultant makes reasonable objection to such change.

5.3   SUBCONTRACTUAL RELATIONS

      5.3.1 By appropriate agreement, written where legally required for validity, the Contractor shall
      require each Subcontractor, to the extent of the Work to be performed by the Subcontractor, to be
      bound to the Contractor by terms of the Contract Documents, and to assume toward the
      Contractor all the obligations and responsibilities which the Contractor, by these Documents,
      assumes toward the Owner and Consultant. Each subcontract agreement shall preserve and
      protect the rights of the Owner and Consultant under the Contract Documents with respect to the
      Work to be performed by the Subcontractor so that subcontracting thereof will not prejudice such
      rights, and shall allow to the Subcontractor, unless specifically proviued otherwise in the
      subcontract agreement, the benefit of all rights, remedies and redress against the Contractor that
      the Contractor, by the Contract Documents, has against the Owner. Where appropriate, the
      Contractor shall require each Subcontractor to enter into similar agreements with Sub-sub-
      contractors. The Contractor shall make available to each proposed Subcontractor, prior to the
      execution of the subcontract agreement, copies of the Contract Documents to which the
      Subcontractor will be bound, and, upon written request of the Subcontractor, identify to the
      Subcontractor terms and conditions of the proposed subcontract agreement which may be at
      variance with the Contract Documents. Subcontractors shall similarly make copies of applicable
      portions of such documents available to their respective proposed Sub-subcontractors.
5.4   CONTINGENT ASSIGNMENT OF SUBCONTRACTS
      5.4.1 Each subcontract agreement for a portion of the Work is assigned by the Contractor to the
      Owner provided that:
             1.     Assignment is effective only, after termination of the Contract by the Owner for
                    cause pursuant to Paragraph 14.2 and only for those subcontract agreements
                    which the Owner accepts by notifying the Subcontractor in writing; and

             2.     Assignment is subject to the prior rights of the surety, if any, obligated under bond
                    relating to the Contract.
      5.4.2 If the Work has been suspended for more than 30 days, the Subcontractor’s compensation
      shall be equitably adjusted.

            CONSTRUCTION BY OWNER OR BY SEPARATE CONTRACTORS

6.1   OWNER’S RIGHT TO PERFORM CONSTRUCTION AND TO AWARD SEPARATE
      CONTRACTS

      6.1.1 The Owner reserves the right to perform construction or operations related to the Project
      with the Owner’s own forces and to award separate contracts in connection with other portions
      of the Project or other construction or operations on the site under Conditions of the Contract
      identical or substantially similar to these including those portions related to insurance and waiver
      of subrogation. If the Contractor claims that delay, or additional cost is involved because of such
      action by the Owner, the Contractor shall make such Claim as provided elsewhere in the Contract
      Documents.
      6.1.2 When separate contracts are awarded for different portions of the Project or other
      construction or operations on the site, the term “Contractor” in the Contract Documents in each
      case shall mean the Contractor who executes each separate Owner-Contractor Contract.
      6.1.3 The Owner shall provide for coordination of the activities of the Owner’s own forces and
      of each separate contractor with the Work of the Contractor, who shall cooperate with them. The
      Contractor shall participate with other separate contractors and the Owner in reviewing their
      construction schedules when directed to do so. The Contractor shall make any revisions to the
      construction schedule and Contract Sum deemed necessary after a joint review and mutual
      agreement. The construction schedules shall then constitute the schedules to be used by the
      Contractor, separate contractors and the Owner until subsequently revised.
      6.1.4 Unless otherwise provided in the Contract Documents, when the Owner performs
      construction or operations related to the Project with the Owner’s own forces, the Owner shall be
      deemed to be subject to the same obligations and to have the same rights which apply to the
      Contractor under the Conditions of the Contract, including, without excluding others, those
      stated in Article 3, this Article 6 and Articles 10, 11 and 12.
6.2   MUTUAL RESPONSIBILITY
      6.2.1 The Contractor shall afford the Owner and separate contractors reasonable opportunity for
      introduction and storage of their materials and equipment and performance of their activities and
      shall connect and coordinate the Contractor’s construction and operations with theirs as required
      by the Contract Documents.
      6.2.2 If part of the Contractor’s Work depends for proper execution or results upon construction
      or operations by the Owner or a separate contractor, the Contractor shall, prior to proceeding
      with that portion of the Work, promptly report to the Consultant apparent discrepancies or
      defects in such other construction that would render it unsuitable for such proper execution and
      results. Failure of the Contractor to report shall constitute an acknowledgment that the Owner’s
      or separate contractors’ completed or partially completed construction is fit and proper to receive
      the Contractor’s Work, except as to defects not then reasonably discoverable.

      6.2.3 Costs caused by delays or by improperly timed activities or defective work shall be borne
      by the party responsible therefor.




                                                GC-23
      6.2.4 The Contractor shall promptly remedy damage wrongfully caused by the Contractor to
      completed or partially completed work or to property of the Owner or separate contractors as
      provided in Subparagraph 10.2.5.
      6.2.5 Claims and other disputes and matters in Question between the Contractor and a separate
      contractor shall be subject to the provisions of Paragraph 4.3 provided the separate contractor has
      reciprocal obligations.

      6.2.6 The Owner and each separate contractor shall have the same responsibilities for cutting
      and patching as are described for the Contractor in Paragraph 3.14.

6.3   OWNER’S RIGHT TO CLEAN UP

      6.3.1 If a dispute arises among the Contractor, separate contractors and the Owner as to the
      responsibility under their respective contracts for maintaining the premises and surrounding area
      free from waste materials and rubbish as described in Paragraph 3.15, the Owner may clean up
      and allocate the cost among those responsible as the Consultant determines to be just.

                                    CHANGES IN THE WORK

7.1   CHANGES

      7.1.1 Changes in the Work may be accomplished after execution of the Contract, and without
      invalidating the Contract, by Change Order, Construction Change Directive or order for a minor
      change in the Work, subject to the limitations stated in this Article 7 and elsewhere in the
      Contract Documents.

      7.1.2 A Change Order shall be based upon agreement among the Owner, Contractor and
      Consultant; a Change Directive requires agreement by the Owner and Consultant and may or
      may not be agreed to by the Contractor; an order for a minor change in the Work may be issued
      by the Consultant alone.
      7.1.3 Changes in the Work shall be performed under applicable provisions of the Contract
      Documents, and the Contractor shall proceed promptly, unless otherwise provided in the Change
      Order, Change Directive or order for a minor change in the Work.
      7.1.4 If unit prices are stated in the Contract Documents or subsequently agreed upon, and if
      quantities originally contemplated are so changed in a proposed Change Order or Change
      Directive that application of such unit prices to quantities of Work proposed will cause
      substantial inequity to the Owner or Contractor, the applicable unit prices shall be equitably
      adjusted.
      7.1.5 If, during the progress of the Work, the Contractor or the Owner discovers that the actual
      subsurface or latent physical conditions encountered at the site differ substantially or materially
      from those or indicated in the Contract Documents, either the Contractor or the Owner may
      request an equitable adjustment in the contract price of the Contract applying to Work affected
      by the differing site conditions. A request for such an adjustment shall be in writing and shall be
      delivered by the party making such claim to the other party as soon as possible after such
      conditions are discovered. Upon receipt of such a claim from a Contractor, or upon its own
      initiative, the Owner shall make an investigation of such physical conditions, and, if they differ
      substantially or materially from those indicated in the Contract Documents or from those
      ordinary encountered and generally recognized as inherent in work of the character provided for
      in the Contract Documents and are of such a nature as to cause an increase or decrease in the cost
      of performance of the Work or a change in the construction methods required for the
      performance of the Work which results in an increase or decrease in the cost of the Work, the
      Owner shall make an equitable adjustment in the contract price and the Contract shall be
      modified in writing accordingly.

7.2   CHANGE ORDERS

      7.2.1 A Change Order is a written instrument prepared by the Consultant and signed by the
      Owner, Contractor and Consultant, stating their agreement upon all of the following:
                1.   A change in the Work;
                2.   The amount of the adjustment in the Contract Sum, if any; and
                3.   The extent of the adjustment in the Contract Time, if any.
      7.2.2 Methods used in determining adjustments to the Contract Sum may include those listed in
      Subparagraph 7.3.3.
7.3   CHANGE DIRECTIVES
      7.3.1 A Construction Change Directive is a written order prepared by the Consultant and signed
      by the Owner and Consultant, directing a change in the Work and stating a proposed basis for
      adjustment, if any, in the Contract Sum or Contract Time, or both. The Owner may by
      Construction Change Directive, without invalidating the Contract, order changes in the Work
      within the general scope of the Contract consisting of additions, deletions or other revisions, the
      Contract Sum and Contract Time being adjusted accordingly.
      7.3.2 A Construction Change Directive shall be used in the absence of total agreement on the
      terms of a Change Order.
      7.3.3 If the Construction Change Directive provides for an adjustment to the Contract Sum, the
      adjustment shall be based on one of the following methods:
           1.        mutual acceptance of a lump sum properly itemized and supported by sufficient
                     substantiating data to permit evaluation;
           2.        unit prices stated in the Contract Documents or subsequently agreed upon;
           3.        cost to be determined in a manner agreed upon by the parties and a mutually
                     acceptable fixed or percentage fee; or
           4.        as provided in Subparagraph 7.3.6.
      7.3.4 Upon receipt of a Construction Change Directive, the Contractor shall promptly proceed
      with the change in the Work involved and advise the Consultant of the Contractor’s agreement or
      disagreement with the method, if any, provided in the Construction Change Directive for
      determining the proposed adjustment in the Contract Sum or Contract Time.
      7.3.5 A Construction Change Directive signed by the Contractor indicates the agreement of the
      Contractor therewith, including adjustment in Contract Sum and Contract Time or the method for
      determining them. Such agreement shall be effective immediately and shall be recorded as a
      Change Order.




                                                GC-26
      7.3.6 If the Contractor does not respond promptly or disagrees with the method for adjustment
      in the Contract Sum, the method and the adjustment shall be determined by the Consultant on the
      basis of reasonable expenditures and savings of those performing the Work attributable to the
      change, including, in case of an increase in the Contract Sum, a reasonable allowance for
      overhead and profit. In such case, and also under Subparagraph 7.3.3.3; the Contractor shall keep
      and present, in such form as the Consultant may, prescribe, an itemized accounting together with
      appropriate supporting data. Unless otherwise provided in the Contract Documents, costs for the
      purposes of this Subparagraph 7.3.6 shall be limited to the following:

             1.     Costs of labor, including social security, old age and unemployment insurance,
                    fringe benefits required by agreement or custom, and workers’ or workmen’s
                    compensation insurance;
             2.     Costs of materials, supplies and equipment, including cost of transportation,
                    whether incorporated or consumed;
             3.     Rental costs of machinery and equipment, exclusive of hand tools, Whether rented
                    from the Contractor or others;
             4.     Costs of premiums for all bonds and insurance, permit fees, and sales, use or
                    similar taxes related to the Work; and

                    the change.
      7.3.7 Pending final determination of cost to the Owner, amounts not in dispute may be included
      in Applications for Payment. The amount of credit to be allowed by the Contractor to the Owner
      for a deletion or change which results in a net decrease in the Contract Sum shall be actual net
      cost as confirmed by the Consultant. When both additions and credits covering related Work or
      substitutions are involved in a change, the allowance for overhead and profit shall be figured on
      the basis of net increase, if any, with respect to that change.
      7.3.8 If the Owner and Contractor do not agree with the adjustment in Contract Time or the
      method for determining it, the adjustment or the method shall be referred to the Consultant for
      determination.

      concerning the adjustments in the Contract Sum and Contract Time, or otherwise reach
      agreement upon the adjustments, such agreement shall be effective immediately and shall be
      recorded by preparation and execution of an appropriate Change Order.

7.4   MINOR CHANGES IN THE WORK

      7.4.1 The Consultant will have authority to order minor changes in the Work not involving
      adjustment in the Contract Sum or extension of the Contract Time and not inconsistent with the
      intent of the Contract Documents. Such changes shall be effected by written order and shall be
      binding on the Owner and Contractor. The Contractor shall carry out such written orders
      promptly.

8.1   DEFINITIONS

      8.1.1 Unless otherwise provided, Contract Time is the period of time, including authorized
      adjustments, allotted in the Contract Documents for Substantial Completion of the Work.
      8.1.2 The date of commencement of the Work is the date established in the Contract. The date
      shall not be postponed by the failure to act of the Contractor or of persons or entities for whom
      the Contractor is responsible.
      8.1.3 The date of Substantial Completion is the date certified by the Consultant in accordance
      with Paragraph 9.8.
      8.1.4 The term “day” as used in the Contract Documents shall mean calendar day unless
      otherwise specifically defined.
8.2   PROGRESS AND COMPLETION
      8.2.1 Time limits stated in the Contract Documents are of the essence of the Contract. By
      executing the Contract the Contractor confirms that the Contract Time is a reasonable period for
      performing the Work.
      8.2.2 The Contractor shall not knowingly, except by agreement or instruction of the Owner in
      writing, prematurely commence operations on the site or elsewhere prior to the effective date of
      insurance required by Article II to be furnished by the Contractor. The date of commencement of
      the Work shall not be changed by the effective date of such insurance. Unless the date of
      commencement is established by a notice to proceed given by the Owner, the Contractor shall
      notify the Owner in writing not less than five days or other agreed period before commencing the
      Work to permit the timely filing of mortgages, mechanic’s liens and other security interests.
      8.2.3 The Contractor shall proceed expeditiously with adequate forces and shall achieve
      Substantial Completion within the Contract Time.

8.3   DELAYS AND EXTENSIONS OF TIME

      8.3.1 If the Contractor is delayed at any time in progress of the Work by an act or neglect of the
      Owner or Consultant, or of an employee of either, or of a separate contractor employed by the
      Owner, or by changes ordered in the Work, or by labor disputes, fire, unusual delay in deliveries,
      unavoidable casualties or other causes beyond the Contractor’s control, or by delay authorized by
      the Owner pending arbitration, or by other causes which the Consultant determines may justify
      delay, then the Contract Time shall be extended by Change Order for such reasonable time as the
      Consultant may determine.

      8.3.2 Claims relating to time shall be made in accordance with applicable provisions of
      Paragraph 4.3.




                                                GC-29
8.3.3 This Paragraph 8.3 does not preclude recovery of damages for delay by either party under other
provisions of the Contract Documents.

8.3.4 The Contractor hereby agrees that the Contractor shall have no claim for damages of any kind
against the Owner or the Consultant on account of any delay in the commencement of the Work or any
hindrance, delay or suspension of any portion of the Work, whether such delay is caused by the Owner,
the Consultant, or otherwise, except as and to the extent expressly provided under applicable State law
in the case of written order by the Owner. The Contractor acknowledges that the Contractor’s sole
remedy for any such delay or suspension will be an extension of time as provided in this Article.

8.3.5           (a)    The owner may order the Contractor in writing to suspend, delay, or interrupt all
or any part of the Work for such period of time as it may determine to be appropriate for the
convenience of the Owner; provided, however, that if there is a suspension, delay or interruption for
fifteen days or more, or due to a failure of the Owner to act within the time specified in this Contract, the
Owner shall make an adjustment in the contract prices for any increase in the cost of performance of this
Contract but shall not include any profit to the Contractor on such increase; and provided further, that
the Owner shall not make any adjustment in the contract price under this provisions for any suspension,
delay, interruption or failure to act to the extent that such is due to any cause for which this Contract
provided for an equitable adjustment of the contract price under any other contract provisions.

                 (b)    The Contractor must submit the amount of a claim under provision (a) of this
Subparagraph to the Owner in writing as soon as practicable after the end of the suspension, delay,
interruption or failure to act and, in any event, not later than the date of final payment under this
Contract and, except for costs due to a suspension order, the Owner shall not approve any costs in the
claim incurred more than twenty days before Contractor notified the Owner in writing of the act or
failure to act involved in the claim.

               (c)    In the event a suspension, delay, interruption or failure to act of the Owner
increases the cost of performance to any Subcontractor, that Subcontractor shall have the same rights
against the Contractor for payment for an increase in the cost of his performance as provisions (a) and
(b) of this Subparagraph give the Contractor against the Owner, but nothing in provisions (a) and (b)
shall in any way change, modify or alter any other rights which the Contractor or the Subcontractor may
have against each other.

                                PAYMENTS AND COMPLETION

9.1   CONTRACT SUM
      9.1.1 The Contract Sum is stated in the Contract and, including authorized adjustments, is the
      total amount payable by the Owner to the Contractor for performance of the Work under the
      Contract Documents.
9.2   SCHEDULE OF VALUES
      9.2.1 Before the first Application for Payment, the Contractor shall submit to the Consultant a
      schedule of values allocated to various portions of the Work, prepared in such form and
      supported by such data to substantiate its accuracy as the Consultant may require. This schedule,
      unless objected to by the Consultant, shall be used as a basis for reviewing the Contractor’s
      Applications for Payment.
9.3   APPLICATIONS FOR PAYMENT
      9.3.1 At least ten days before the date established for each progress payment, the Contractor
      shall submit to the Consultant an itemized Application for Payment for operations completed in
      accordance with the schedule of values. Such application shall be supported by such data
      substantiating the Contractor’s right to payment as the Owner or Consultant may require, such as
      copies of requisitions from Subcontractors and material suppliers, and reflecting retainage if
      provided for elsewhere in the Contract Documents.
             1.      Such applications may include requests for payment on account of changes in the
             Work which have been properly authorized by Construction Change Directives but not
             yet included in Change Orders.
             2.      Such applications may not include requests for payment of amounts the Contractor
             does not intend to pay to a Subcontractor or material supplier because of a dispute or
             other reason.
      9.3.2 Unless otherwise provided in the Contract Documents, payments shall be made on
      account of materials and equipment delivered and suitably stored at the site for subsequent incor-
      poration in the Work. If approved in advance by the Owner, payment may similarly be made for
      materials and equipment suitably stored off the site a location agreed upon in writing. Payment
      for materials and equipment stored on or off the site shall be conditioned upon compliance by the
      Contractor with procedures satisfactory to the Owner to establish the Owner’s title to such
      materials and equipment or otherwise protect the Owner’s interest, and shall include applicable
      insurance, storage and transportation to the site for such materials and equipment stored off the
      site.




                                               GC-31
      9.3.3 The Contractor warrants that title to all Work covered by an Application for Payment will
      pass to the Owner no later than the time of payment. The Contractor further warrants that upon
      submittal of an Application for Payment all Work for which Certificate for Payment have been
      previously issued and payments received form the Owner shall, to the best of the Contractor’s
      knowledge, information and belief, be free and clear of liens, claims, security interests or
      encumbrances in favor of the Contractor, Subcontractors, material suppliers, or other persons or
      entities making a claim by reason of having provided labor, materials and equipment relating to
      the Work.

9.4   CERTIFICATES FOR PAYMENT
      9.4.1 The Consultant will, within 14 days after receipt of the Contractor’s Application for
      Payment. either issue to the Owner a Certificate for Payment, with a copy to the Contractor, for
      such amount as the Consultant determines is properly due, or notify the Contractor and Owner in
      writing of the Consultant’s reasons for withholding certification in whole or in part as provided
      in Subparagraph 9.5.1.
      9.4.2 The issuance of a Certificate for Payment will constitute a representation by the
      Consultant to the Owner, based solely on the Consultant’s observations at the site and the data
      comprising the Application for Payment, that the Work has progressed to the point indicated and
      that, to the best of the Consultant’s knowledge, information and belief, quality of the Work is in
      accordance with the Contract Documents. The foregoing representations are subject to an
      evaluation of the Work for conformance with the Contract Documents upon Substantial
      Completion, to results of subsequent tests and inspections, to minor deviations from the Contract
      Documents correctable prior to completion and to specific qualifications expressed by the
      Consultant. The issuance of a Certificate for Payment will further constitute a representation that
      the Contractor is entitled to payment in the amount certified. However, the issuance of a
      Certificate for Payment will not be a representation that the Consultant has (1) made exhaustive
      or continuous on-site inspections to check the quality or quantity of the Work, (2) reviewed
      construction means, methods, techniques, sequences or procedures, (3) reviewed copies of
      requisitions received from Subcontractors and material suppliers and other data requested by the
      Owner to substantiate the Contractor’s right to payment or (4) made examination to ascertain
      how or for what purpose the Contractor has used money previously paid on account of the
      Contract Sum.
9.5   DECISIONS TO WITHHOLD CERTIFICATION
      9.5.1 The Consultant may decide not to certify payment and advise the Owner to withhold a
      Certificate for Payment in whole or in part, to the extent reasonably necessary to protect the
      Owner, if in the Consultant’s opinion the representations to the Owner required by Subparagraph
      9.4.2 cannot be made. If the Consultant is unable to certify payment in the amount of the
      Application, the Consultant will notify the Contractor and Owner as provided in Subparagraph
      9.4.1. If the Contractor and Consultant cannot agree on a revised amount, the Consultant will
      promptly issue a Certificate for Payment for the amount for which the Consultant is able to make
      such representations to the Owner. The Consultant may also decide not to certify payment or,
      because of subsequently discovered evidence or subsequent observations, may nullify the whole
      or a part of a Certificate for Payment previously issued, to such extent as may be necessary in the
      Consultants opinion to protect the Owner from loss because of:




                                                GC-32
             1.     Defective Work not remedied;

            2.     Third party claims filed or reasonable evidence indicating probable filing of such
                   claims;
            3.     Failure of the Contractor to make payments properly to Subcontractors or for
                   labor, materials or equipment;
            4.     Reasonable evidence that the Work cannot be completed for the unpaid balance of
                   the Contract Sum;
            5.     Damage to the Owner or another contractor;
            6.     Reasonable evidence that the Work will not be completed within the Contract
                   time, and that the unpaid balance would not be adequate to cover actual or
                   liquidated damages for the anticipated delays; or
            7.     Persistent failure to carry out the Work in accordance with the Contract
                   Documents.
      9.5.2 When the above reasons for withholding certification are removed, certification will be
      made for amounts previously withheld.
9.6   PROGRESS PAYMENTS
      9.6.1 After the Consultant has issued a Certificate for Payment, the Owner shall make payment
      in the manner and within the time provided in the Contract Documents, and shall so notify the
      Consultant.
             1.    Within fifteen days after receipt from the Contractor, at the place designated by the
                   Owner if such a place is so designated, or an itemized Application for Payment in
                   accordance with Subparagraph 9.3 requesting payment of the amount due for the
                   preceding month, the Owner will make a progress payment to the Contractor for
                   the Work performed during the preceding month and for the materials not
                   incorporated in the Work but delivered and suitably stored at the site (or some
                   location agreed upon in writing) to which the contractor has title or to which a
                   Subcontractor has title and has authorized the Contractor to transfer title to the
                   Owner, less (1) a retention based on its estimate of the fair value of its claims
                   against the Contractor and less (2) a retention for direct payments to
                   Subcontractors based on demands for same in accordance with the provisions of
                   Subparagraph 9.2, and less (3) a retention not exceeding five percent of the
                   approved amount of the progress payment. After the receipt of an itemized
                   Application for Payment in accordance with Subparagraph 9.3 requesting final
                   payment, and within sixty-five days after (a) the Contractor fully completes the
                   Work or substantially completes the Work so that the value of the Work remaining
                   to be done is, in the estimate of the Owner, less than one percent of the original
                   contract price, or (b) the Contractor substantially completes the Work and the
                   Owner takes possession for occupancy, whichever comes first, the Owner shall pay
                   the contractor the entire balance due on the contract less (1) a retention based on its
                   estimate of the fair value of its claims against the Contractor and of the cost for
                   completing the incomplete and unsatisfactory items of Work and less (2) a
                   retention for direct payments to Subcontractors based on demands for same in
                   accordance with the provisions of Sub-subparagraphs 9.6.2.1 through 9.6.2.12 or
                   based on the record of payments by the Contractor to the Subcontractors under this
                   Contract if such record of payment indicates that the Contractor has not paid
                   Subcontractors as provided in Sub-subparagraph 9.6.2.1 through 9.6.2.12. If the
                   Owner fails to make payment as herein provided, there shall be added to each such
                                               GC-33
             payment daily interest at a rate of three percentage points above the rediscount rate
             when charged by the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston commencing on the first day
             after said payment is due and continuing until the payment is delivered or mailed
             to the Contractor; provided, that no interest shall be due, in any event, on the
             amount due on an itemized Application for Payment for final payment until fifteen
             days after receipt of such Application for Payment from the Contractor, at the
             place designated by the Owner if such a place is so designated. The Contractor
             agrees to pay to each Subcontractor a portion of any such interest paid in
             accordance with the amount due each Subcontractor.

       2.   The Owner may make the changes in any itemized Application for Payment
             submitted by the Contractor, and the payment due on said Application for Payment
             shall be computed in accordance with the changes so made, but such changes or
             any requirement for a corrected Application for Payment shall not affect the due
             date for the progress payment or the date for the commencement of interest
             charges on the amount of the progress payment computed in accordance with the
             changes made, as provided herein; provided, that the Owner may, within seven
             days after receipt, return to the Contractor for correction, any itemized Application
             for Payment which is not in the required form or which contains computations not
             arithmetically correct and, in that event, the date of receipt of such Application for
             Payment shall be the date of receipt of the corrected Application of Payment in
             proper form and with arithmetically correct computations. The date of receipt of an
             Application for Payment received on Saturday shall be the first working day
             thereafter.

       3.    All itemized Applications for Payment shall be submitted to the Consultant in
             accordance with Subparagraph 9.3, and the date of receipt by the Consultant shall
             be marked on the Application for Payment. All itemized Applications for Payment
             shall contain a separate item for each filed subtrade and each subsubtrade listed in
             sub-bid form as required by specifications and a column listing the amount paid to
             each subcontractor and Sub-subcontractor as of the date the Application for
             Payment is filed. The person making payment for the Owner shall add the daily
             interest provided for herein to each payment for each day beyond the due date
             based on the date of receipt marked on the itemized Application for Payment.

       4.    A certificate of the Consultant to the effect that the Contractor has fully or
             substantially completed the Work shall, subject to the provisions of Subparagraph
             4.6.2, be conclusive for the purposes of this Subparagraph 9.6.1.

9.6.2 The Contractor shall promptly pay each Subcontractor, upon receipt of payment from the
Owner, out of the amount paid to the Contractor on account of such Subcontractor’s portion of
the Work, the amount to which said Subcontractor is entitled, reflecting percentages actually
retained from payments to the Contractor on account of such Subcontractor’s portion of The
Work. The Contractor shall, by appropriate agreement with each Subcontractor, require each
Subcontractor to make payments to Sub-subcontractors in similar manner.

      1.     Forthwith after the Contractor receives payment on account of an itemized
             Application for Payment, the Contractor shall pay to each Subcontractor the
             amount paid for the labor performed and the materials furnished by that
             Subcontractor, less any amount specified in any court proceedings barring such
             payment and also less any amount claimed due from the Subcontractor by the
             Contractor.
       2.     No later than the sixty-fifth day after each Subcontractor substantially completes
              its Work in accordance with the Contract Documents, the entire balance due
                                         GC-34
     under the subcontract less amounts retained by the Owner as the estimated cost of
     completing the incomplete and unsatisfactory items of Work, shall be due the
     Subcontractor; and the Owner shall pay that amount to the Contractor. The
     Contractor shall forthwith pay to the Subcontractor the full amount received from
     the Owner less any amount specified in any court proceedings barring such
     payment and also less any amount claimed due from the Subcontractor by the
     Contractor.
3.   Each payment made by the Owner to the Contractor pursuant to Sub-
     subparagraphs 9.6.2.1 and 9.6.2.2 for the labor performed and the materials
     furnished by a Subcontractor shall be made to the Contractor for the account of
     that Subcontractor; and the Owner shall take reasonable steps to compel the
     Contractor to make each such payment to each such Subcontractor. If the Owner
     has received a demand for direct payment from a Subcontractor for any amount
     which has already been included in a payment to the Contractor or which is to be
     included in a payment to the Contractor for payment to the Subcontractor as
     provided in Sub-subparagraphs 9.6.2.1 and 9.6.2.2, the Owner shall act upon the
     demand as provided in Subparagraph 9.6.2.
4.   If, within seventy days after the Subcontractor has substantially completed the
     subcontract Work, the Subcontractor has not received from the Contractor the
     balance due under the subcontract including any amount due for extra labor and
     materials furnished to the Contractor, less any amount retained by the Owner as
     the estimated cost of completing the incomplete and unsatisfactory items of Work,
     the Subcontractor may demand direct payment of that balance from the Owner.
     The demand shall be by a sworn statement delivered to or sent by certified mail to
     the Owner, and a copy shall be delivered to or sent by certified mail to the
     Contractor at the same time. The demand shall contain a detailed breakdown of
     the balance due under the subcontract and also a statement of the status of
     completion of the subcontract Work. Any demand made after substantial
     completion of the subcontract Work shall be valid even if delivered or mailed
     prior to the seventieth day after the Subcontractor has substantially completed the
     subcontract Work. Within ten days after has delivered or so mailed the demand to
     the Owner and delivered or so mailed a copy to the Contractor, the Contractor
     may reply to the demand. The reply shall be by a sworn statement delivered to or
     sent by certified mail to the Owner and a copy shall be delivered to or sent by
     certified mail to the Subcontractor at that same time. The reply shall contain a
     detailed breakdown of the balance due under the Subcontract including any
     amount due for extra labor and materials furnished to the Contractor and the
     amount due for each claim made by the Contractor against the Subcontractor.
5.   Within fifteen days after receipt of the demand by the Owner, but in no event
     prior to the seventieth day after substantial completion of the subcontract Work,
     the Owner shall make direct payment to the Subcontractor of the balance due
     under the subcontract, including any amount due for extra labor and materials
     furnished to the Contractor, less any amount (i) retained by the Owner as the
     estimated cost of completing the incomplete or unsatisfactory items of Work, (ii)
     specified in any court proceedings barring such payment, or (iii) disputed by the
     Contractor in the sworn reply; provided, that the Owner shall not deduct from a
     direct payment any amount as provided in part (iii) if the reply is not sworn to, or
     for which the sworn reply does not contain the detailed breakdown required by
     Sub-subparagraph 9.6.2.4. The Owner shall make further direct payment to the
     Subcontractor forthwith after the removal of the basis for deductions from direct
     payments made as provided in parts (i) and (ii) of the Sub-subparagraph.
6.   The Owner shall forthwith deposit the amount deducted from a direct payment as
     provided in part (iii) of Sub-subparagraph 9.6.2.5 in an interest-bearing joint
                                GC-35
      account in the names of the Contractor and the Subcontractor in a bank located in
      the same state as the project, as selected by the Owner or as agreed upon by the
      Contractor and the Subcontractor, and Owner shall notify the Contractor and the
      Subcontractor of the date of the deposit and the bank receiving the deposit. The
      bank shall pay the amount in the account, including accrued interest, as provided
      in an agreement between the Contractor and the Subcontractor, or as determined
      by decree of a court of competent jurisdiction.
7.    All direct payments and all deductions from demands for direct payments
      deposited in an interest-bearing account or accounts in a bank pursuant to Sub-
      subparagraph 9.6.2.6 shall be made of amounts payable to the Contractor at the
      time of receipt of a demand for direct payment from a Subcontractor and out of
      amounts which later become payable to the Contractor and in the order of receipt
      of such demands from the Subcontractors. All direct payments shall discharge the
      obligation of the Owner to the Contractor to the extent of such payment.
8.    The Owner shall deduct from payments to a contractor amounts which, together
      with the deposits in interest-bearing accounts pursuant to Sub-subparagraph
      9.6.2.6, are sufficient to satisfy all unpaid balances of demands for direct payment
      received from Subcontractors. All such amounts shall be earmarked for such
      direct payments, and the Subcontractors shall have a right in such deductions
      prior to any claims against such amounts by creditors of the Contractor.

9.    If the Subcontractor does not receive payment as provided in Sub-subparagraph
      9.6.2.1, or if the Contractor does not submit an itemized Application for Payment
      for the value of the labor materials performed or furnished by the Subcontractor
      and the Subcontractor does not receive payment for same when due less the
      deductions provided for in Sub-subparagraph 9.6.2.1, the Subcontractor may
      demand direct payment by following the procedure in Sub-subparagraph 9.6.2.4,
      and the Contractor may file a sworn reply as provided in that same Sub-
      subparagraph. A demand made after the first day of the month following that for
      which the Subcontractor performed or furnished the labor and materials for which
      the Subcontractor seeks payment shall be valid even if delivered or mailed prior
      to the time payment was due on an Application for Payment from the Contractor.
      Thereafter the Owner shall proceed as provided in Sub-subparagraphs 9.6.2.5
      through 9.6.2.8.

10.   Any assignment by a Subcontractor of the rights under this section to a surety
      company furnishing a bond under the provisions of applicable State laws shall be
      invalid. The assignment and subrogation rights of the surety to amounts included
      in a demand for direct payment which are in the possession of the Owner or
      which are on deposit pursuant to Sub-subparagraph 9.6.2.6 shall be subordinate to
      the rights of all Subcontractors who are entitled to be paid under this section and
      who have not been paid in full.
11.   “Subcontractor” as used in Sub-subparagraphs 9.6.2.1 through 9.6.2.13 shall
      mean a person who files a sub-bid or who is approved by the Owner in writing as
      a person performing labor or both performing labor and furnishing materials
      pursuant to a contract with the Contractor.
12.   Any enforcement by a contractor or a Subcontractor of a claim to any portion of
      the amount of a demand for direct payment deposited as provided in Sub-
      subparagraph 9.6.2.6 shall be by a petition in equity in the superior court against
      the other and the bank shall not be a necessary party. Any enforcement by a
      Subcontractor of a claim for direct payment or a right to require a deposit as
                                 GC-36
                     provided in Subparagraph 9.6.2.6 shall be by a petition in equity in the superior
                     court against the Owner and the Contractor shall not be a necessary party. Any
                     petition filed by a Contractor or Subcontractor under this Sub-subparagraph shall
                     be subject to the provisions of applicable State laws.
      9.6.3 Neither the Owner nor Consultant shall have an obligation to pay or see to the payment of
      money to a Subcontractor, Sub-subcontractor, or material supplier except as many otherwise be
      provided in Subparagraph 9.6.2.
      9.6.4 A Certificate for Payment, a progress payment, or partial or entire use or occupancy of
      the Project by the Owner shall not constitute acceptance of Work not in accordance with the
      Contract Documents.
9.7   FAILURE OF PAYMENT

      9.7.1 If the Consultant does not issue a Certificate for Payment, through no fault of the
      Contractor, within 14 days after receipt of the Contractor’s Application for Payment, or if the
      Owner does not pay the Contractor within 30 days after the date established in the Contract
      Documents the amount certified by the Consultant, then the Contractor may, upon 14 additional
      days’ written notice to the Owner and Consultant, stop the Work until payment of the amount
      owing has been received. The Contract Time shall be extended appropriately and the Contract
      Sum shall be increased by the amount of the Contractor’s reasonable costs of shutdown, delay
      and start-up, which shall be accomplished as provided in Article 7.

9.8   SUBSTANTIAL COMPLETION

      9.8.1 Substantial Completion is the stage in the progress of the Work when the Work or
      designated portion thereof is sufficiently complete in accordance with the Contract Documents so
      the Owner can occupy or utilize the Work for its intended use.

      9.8.2 When the Contractor considers that the Work, or a portion thereof which the Owner
      agrees to accept separately, is substantially complete, the Contractor shall prepare and submit to
      the Consultant a comprehensive list of items to be completed or corrected. The Contractor shall
      proceed promptly, to complete and correct items on the list. Failure to include an item on such
      list does not alter the responsibility of the Contractor to complete all Work in accordance With
      the Contract Documents. Upon receipt of the Contractor’s list, the Consultant will make an
      inspection to determine whether the Work or designated portion thereof is substantially
      complete. If the Consultant’s inspection discloses any item, whether or not included on the
      Contractor’s list, which is not in accordance with the requirements of the Contract Documents,
      the Contractor shall, before issuance of the Certificate of Substantial Completion, complete or
      correct such item upon notification by the Consultant. The Contractor shall then submit a request
      for another inspection by the Consultant to determine Substantial Completion. When the Work or
      designated portion thereof is substantially complete, the Consultant will prepare a Certificate of
      Substantial Completion which shall establish the date of Substantial Completion, shall establish
      responsibilities of the Owner and Contractor for security, maintenance, heat, utilities, damage to
      the Work and insurance, and shall fix the time within which the Contractor shall finish all items
      on the list accompanying the Certificate. Warranties required by the Contract Documents shah
      commence on the date of Substantial Completion of the Work or designated portion thereof
      unless otherwise provided in the Certificate of Substantial Completion. The Certificate of
      Substantial Completion shall be submitted to the Owner and Contractor for their written
      acceptance of responsibilities assigned to them in such Certificate.

      9.8.3 Upon Substantial Completion of the Work or designated portion thereof and upon
      application by, the Contractor and certification by the Consultant, the Owner shall make
      payment, reflecting adjustment in retainage, if any, for such Work or portion thereof as provided
      in the Contract Documents.

                                               GC-37
       9.8.4 In addition to the provisions of this Subparagraph 9.8, the rights and obligations of each
       of the parties to this Contract upon Substantial Completion of the Work or a designated portion
       thereof, shall be governed by the requirements of applicable State laws.

9.9    PARTIAL OCCUPANCY OR USE

       9.9.1 The Owner may occupy or use any completed or partially completed portion of the Work
       at any stage when such portion is designated by separate agreement with the Contractor,
       provided such occupancy or use is consented to by the insurer as required under Subparagraph
       11.3.11 and authorized by public authorities having jurisdiction over the Work. Such partial
       occupancy or use may commence whether or not the portion is substantially complete, provided
       the Owner and Contractor have accepted in Writing the responsibilities assigned to each of them
       for payments, retainage if any, security, maintenance, heat, utilities, damage to the Work and
       insurance, and have agreed in writing concerning the period for correction of the Work dnd
       commencement of warranties required by the Contract Documents. When the Contractor
       considers a portion substantially complete, the Contractor shall prepare and submit a list to the
       Consultant as provided under Subparagraph 9.8.2. Consent of the Contractor to partial
       occupancy, or use shall not be unreasonably withheld. The stage of the progress of the Work
       shall be determined by written agreement between the Owner and Contractor or, if no agreement
       is reached, by decision of the Consultant.
       9.9.2 Immediately prior to such partial occupancy or use, the Owner, Contractor and Consultant
       shall jointly inspect the area to be occupied or portion Work to be used in order to determine and
       record the condition of the Work.
       9.9.3 Unless otherwise agreed upon, partial occupancy or use of a portion or portions of the
       Work shall not constitute acceptance of Work not complying with the requirements of the
       Contract Documents.
9.10   FINAL COMPLETION AND FINAL PAYMENT
       9.10.1 Upon receipt of written notice that the Work is ready for final inspection and acceptance
       and upon receipt of a final Application for Payment, the Consultant will promptly make such
       inspection and, when the Consultant finds the Work acceptable under the Contract Documents
       and the Contract fully performed, the Consultant will promptly issue a final Certificate for
       Payment stating that to the best of the Consultant’s knowledge, information and belief, and on
       the basis of the Consultant’s observations and inspections, the Work has been completed in
       accordance with terms and conditions of the Contract Documents and that the entire balance
       found to be due the Contractor and noted in said final Certificate is due and payable. The
       Consultant’s final Certificate for Payment will constitute a further representation that conditions
       listed in Subparagraph 9.10.2 as precedent to the Contractor’s being entitled to final payment
       have been fulfilled.

       9.10.2 Neither final payment nor any remaining retained percentage shall become due until the
       Contractor submits to the Consultant (1) an affidavit that payrolls, bills for materials and
       equipment, and other indebtedness connected with the Work for which the Owner or the Owner’s
       property might be responsible or encumbered (less amounts withheld by Owner) have been paid
       or otherwise satisfied, (2) a certificate evidencing that insurance required by the Contract
       Documents to remain in force after final payment is currently in effect and will not be canceled
       or allowed to expire until at least 30 days prior written notice has been given to the Owner, (3) a
       written statement that the Contractor knows of no substantial reason that the insurance will not
       be renewable to cover the period required by the Contract Documents, (4) consent of surety, if
       any, to final payment and (5), if required by the Owner, other data establishing payment or
       satisfaction of obligations, such as receipts, releases and waivers of liens, claims, security
       interests or encumbrances arising out of the Contract, to the extent and in such form as may be
       designated by the Owner. If a Subcontractor refuses to furnish a release or waiver required by the
                                                  GC-38
Owner, the Contractor may furnish a bond satisfactory to the Owner to indemnify the Owner
against such lien. If such lien remains unsatisfied after payments are made, the Contractor shall
refund to the Owner all money that the Owner may be compelled to pay in discharging such lien,
including all costs and reasonable attorney’ fees.

9.10.3 If, after Substantial Completion of the Work, final completion thereof is materially
delayed through no fault of the Contractor or by issuance of Change Orders affecting final
completion, and the Consultant so confirms, the Owner shall, upon application by the Contractor
and certification by the Consultant, and without terminating the Contract, make payment of the
balance due for that portion of the Work fully completed and accepted. If the remaining balance
for Work not fully completed or corrected is less than retainage stipulated in the Contract
Documents, and if bonds have been furnished, the written consent of surety to payment of the
balance due for that portion of the Work fully completed and accepted shall be submitted by the
Contractor to the Consultant prior to certification of such payment. Such payment shall be made
under terms and conditions governing final payment, except that it shall not constitute a waiver
of claims. The making of final payment shall constitute a waiver of claims by the Owner as
provided in Subparagraph 4.3.5.
9.10.4 Acceptance of final payment by the Contractor, a Subcontractor or material supplier shall
constitute a waiver of claims by that payee except those previously made in writing and
identified by that payee as unsettled at the time of final Application for Payment. Such waivers
shall be in addition to the waiver described in Subparagraph 4.3.5.

       protect the Contractor from claims set forth below which may arise out of or result from the
       Contractor’s operations under the Contract and for which the Contractor may be legally liable,

       Paragraph Il .3 to be covered, whichever is earlier. This insurance shall include interests of the
       Owner, the Contractor, Subcontractors and Sub-subcontractors in the Work.

              1.     Property insurance shall be on an all-risk policy form and shall insure against the

                     not be required unless otherwise provided in the Contract Documents.
              2.     If the Owner does not intend to purchase such property insurance required by the
                     Contract and with all of the coverages in the amount described above, the Owner
                     shall so inform the Contractor in writing prior to commencement of the Work. The
                     Contractor may then effect insurance which will protect the interests of the
                     Contractor, Subcontractors and Sub-contractors in the Work, and by appropriate
                     Change Order the cost thereof shall be charged to the Owner. If the Contractor is
                     damaged by the failure or neglect of the Owner to purchase or maintain insurance
                     as described above, without so notifying the Contractor, then the Owner shall bear
                     all reasonable costs properly attributable thereto.

       and any of their subcontractors, sub-subcontractors, agents and employees, each of the other and
       (2) the Consultant, its Subconsultants, separate contractors described in Article 6, if any, and any
       of their subcontractors, sub-subcontractors, agents and employees, for damages caused by fire or
       other perils to the extent covered by property insurance obtained pursuant to this Paragraph 11.3
       or other property insurance applicable to the Work, except such rights as they have to proceeds of

                                     CORRECTION OF WORK

12.1   CORRECTION OF WORK

       12.1.1 The Contractor shall promptly correct Work rejected by the Consultant or failing to
       conform to the requirements of the Contract Documents either observed before or after
       Substantial Completion. The Contractor shall bear costs of correcting such rejected Work,
       including additional testing and inspections and compensation for the Consultant’s services and
       expenses made necessary thereby.
       12.1.2 If, within one year after the date of Substantial Completion of the Work or designated
       portion thereof, or after the date for commencement of warranties established under
       Subparagraph 9.9.1, or by terms of an applicable special warranty required by the Contract
       Documents, any of the Work is found to be not in accordance with the requirements of the
       Contract Documents, the Contractor shall correct it promptly after receipt of written notice from
       the Owner to do so unless the Owner has previously given the Contractor a written acceptance of
       such condition. This period of one year shall be extended with respect to portions of Work first
       performed after Substantial Completion by the period of time between Substantial Completion
       and the actual performance of the Work. This obligation under this Subparagraph 12.1.2 shall
       survive acceptance of the Work under the Contract and termination of the Contract. The Owner
       shall give such notice promptly after discovery of the condition.
       12.1.3 The Contractor shall remedy portions of the Work which are not in accordance with the
       requirements of the Contract Documents and are not accepted by the Owner.

       12.1.4 If the Contractor fails to correct nonconforming Work within a reasonable time, the
       Owner may correct it in accordance with Paragraph 2.4.

       12.1.5 Nothing contained in this Paragraph 12.1 shall be construed to establish a period of
       limitation with respect to other obligations which the Contractor might have under the Contract
       Documents. Establishment of the time period of one year as described in Subparagraph 12.1.2
       relates only to the specific obligation of the Contractor to correct the Work, and has no
       relationship to the time which the obligation to comply with the Contract Documents may be
       sought to be enforced, nor to the time within which proceedings may be commenced to establish
       the Contractor’s liability with respect to the Contractor’s obligations other than specifically to
       correct the Work.
12.2   ACCEPTANCE OF NONCONFORMING WORK

       12.2.1 If the Owner prefers to accept Work which is not in accordance with the requirements of
       the Contract Documents, the Owner may do so instead of requiring its correction, in which case
       the Contract Sum will he reduced as appropriate and equitable. Such adjustment shall be effected
       whether or not final payment has been made.

                    TERMINATION OR SUSPENSION OF THE CONTRACT

14.1   TERMINATION BY THE CONTRACTOR
       14.1.1 The Contractor may terminate the Contract if the Work is stopped for a period of 90 days
       through no act or fault of the Contractor or a Subcontractor, Sub-subcontractor or their agents or
       employees or any other persons performing portions of the Work under contract with the
       Contractor, for any of the following reasons:
              1.     Issuance of an order of a court or other public authority having jurisdiction;
              2.     An act of government, such as a declaration of national emergency, making
                     material unavailable;
              3.     Because the Consultant has not issued a Certificate for Payment and has not
                     notified the Contractor of the reason for withholding certification as provided in
                     Subparagraph 9.4.1; or
              4.     If repeated suspensions, delays or interruptions by the Owner as described in

                     number of days scheduled for completion, or 120 days in any 365-day period,
                     whichever is less.

       a Subcontractor or their agents or employees or any other persons performing portions of the
       Work under contract with the Contractor because the Owner has persistently failed to fulfill the
       Owner’s obligation’s under the Contract Documents with respect to matters important to the
       progress of the Work, the Contractor may, upon seven additional days written notice to the
       Owner and the Consultant, terminate the Contract and recover from the Owner as provided in
       Subparagraph 14.1.2.

14.2   TERMINATION BY THE OWNER FOR CAUSE

       14.2.1 The Owner may terminate the Contract if the Contractor:
              1.     Persistently or repeatedly refuses or fails to supply enough properly skilled
                     workers or proper materials;
              2.     Fails to make payment to Subcontractors for materials or labor in accordance with
                     the respective agreements between the Contractor and the Subcontractors;

              3.     Persistently disregards laws, ordinances, or rules, regulations or orders of Public
                     Authorities having jurisdiction; or

       14.2.2 When any of the above reasons exist, the Owner, upon certification by the Consultant that
       sufficient cause exists to justify such action, may without prejudice to any other rights and
       remedies of the Owner and after giving the Contractor and the Contractor’s Surety, if any, seven
       days’ written notice, terminate the Contractor and may, subject to any prior rights of the surety:
               1.     Take possession of the site and of all materials, equipment, tools, and
                      construction equipment and machinery thereon owned by the Contractor;
               2.     Accept assignment of subcontracts pursuant to Paragraph 5.4; and
               3.     Finish the Work by whatever reasonable method the Owner may deem
                      expedient.

       14.2.3 When the Owner terminates the Contract for one of the reasons stated in Subparagraph
       14.2.1, the Contractor shall not be entitled to receive further payment until the Work is finished.

       14.2.4 If the unpaid balance of the Contract Sum exceeds costs of finishing the Work, including
       compensation for the Consultant’s services and expenses made necessary thereby, such excess
       shall be paid to the Contractor. If such costs exceed the unpaid balance, the Contractor shall pay
       the difference to the Owner. The amount to be paid to the Contractor or Owner, as the case may
       be, shall be certified by the Consultant, upon application, and this obligation for payment shall
       survive termination of the Contract.

14.3   SUSPENSION BY THE OWNER FOR CONVENIENCE

       14.3.1 The Owner may, without cause, order the Contractor in writing to suspend, delay or
       interrupt the Work in whole or in part for such period of time as the Owner may determine.

       14.3.2 An adjustment shall be made for increases in the cost of performance of the Contract,
       including profit on the increased cost of performance, caused by suspension, delay or
       interruption. No adjustment shall be made to the extent:
               1.     That performance is, was or would have been so suspended, delayed or
                      interrupted by another cause for which the Contractor is responsible; or
               2.     That an equitable adjustment is made or denied under another provision of this
                      Contract.

                       measured in relation to the applicant’s financial statements.

Time for Completion and Sequence of Work

A.      The Work that the Contractor is required to perform under the Contract shall be
        commenced at the time stipulated by the Owner in the Notice to Proceed and shall be
        completed as indicated in the Contract Documents.

B.      The Work shall be done in stages and in the required order as necessary to meet the

        Contractor shall provide additional work crews to accomplish the Work by the indicated
        completion date.

C.      Before beginning any portion of the Work, the Contractor shall give the Owner and
        Engineer a minimum of 48 hours’ prior notice.

        the Work by any act or failure to act on the part of the Owner, or Engineer, or any other
        cause beyond the Contractor’s control, none of which are due to any fault, neglect, act or

            have been blocked by the asbestos work, provide temporary exit signs directing building
            occupants to the nearest available exit location.

      C.    Visually inspect and smoke test NPE barriers to assure an effective seal.        Repair defects
            immediately.

      D.    Create a pressure differential in the range of 0.02 to 0.04 inches of water column between the
            Work Area and occupied areas by the use of acceptable pressure differential equipment.
            Provide a sufficient quantity of units to exhaust the volume of air within the Asbestos Control
            Area a minimum of four times per hour. Continuously monitor the pressure differential
                                                                  02080-15

            between the Work Area and occupied areas utilizing recording type equipment to ensure
            exhaust air filtration equipment maintains a minimum pressure differential of 0.02 inches of
            water column.

3.5         ASBESTOS REMOVAL – INTERIOR ABATEMENT

      A.    A Competent Person shall be on the job at all times to ensure the establishment and
            maintenance of the NPE and proper work practices throughout the project. Before beginning
            work within the NPE and at the beginning of each shift, the NPE shall be inspected for breaches
            and smoke tested for leaks, and any leaks sealed. Results of NPE inspections shall be logged.

      B.    Do not begin abatement work until authorized by the Project Monitor.

      C.    Spray asbestos materials with amended water, using airless spray equipment capable of
            providing a "mist" application to reduce the release of fibers during the removal operation.

      D.    In order to maintain indoor asbestos concentrations at a minimum, remove the wet asbestos in
            manageable sections. Materials shall not be allowed to dry out. Material drop shall not exceed 8
            feet. For heights up to 15 feet provide inclined chutes or scaffolding to intercept drop. For
            heights exceeding 15 feet provide enclosed dust-proof chutes.

      E.    Fill disposal containers (six (6) mil polyethylene bags or fiber drums) as removal proceeds, seal
            filled containers, apply caution labels and clean containers before removal to wash area. Bags
            shall be securely sealed to prevent accidental opening and leakage by taping in gooseneck
            fashion. Bags may be placed in drums for staging and transportation to the disposal site. Bags
            shall be decontaminated by wet cleaning and HEPA vacuuming before being placed in clean
            drums and sealed with locking ring tops. Vinyl asbestos floor tile removed shall be placed in
            polypropylene burlap bags and then double poly bagged. Wet clean each container thoroughly
            before moving to Holding Area. Ensure that workers do not enter from uncontaminated areas
            into the Washroom or the Work Area. Ensure that contaminated workers do not exit the Work
            Area through the Equipment Decontamination Enclosure.

      F.    After completion of stripping work, all surfaces from which asbestos has been removed shall be
            wet brushed, using a nylon brush, wet wiped and sponged or cleaned by an equivalent method
            to remove all visible material (wire brushes are not permitted). During this work the surfaces
            being cleaned shall be kept wet.

      G.    If at any time during asbestos removal, should the Project Monitor suspect contamination of
            areas outside the Work Area, the Contractor shall stop all abatement work and take steps to
            decontaminate these areas and eliminate causes of such contamination. Unprotected individuals
            shall be prohibited from entering contaminated areas until air sampling and visual inspections
            determine decontamination.

      H.    Containerize asbestos-containing waste material removed daily. Do not allow ACM to remain
            on the floor overnight, allowing it to dry out.

3.6         ALTERNATIVE WORK PRACTICE (AWP) PROCEDURES

            shall be forwarded to the Owner.

3.10        CONTRACTOR RESPONSIBILITY

      A.    Conduct air sampling, as necessary, to assure that workers are using appropriate respiratory
            protection in accordance with OSHA Standard 1926.1101. Documentation of air sampling
            results must be recorded at the work site within twenty-four (24) hours of receipt of results, and
            shall be available for review until the job is complete.

3.11        AIR SAMPLING SCHEDULE

      A.    At a minimum, air sampling by the Project Monitor will be conducted in accordance with the
            following schedule:

                                             Pre-                     During             Post-
                                                                  02080-18

            less than
            500 s.f.
            or 1500 l.f.

    B.      Frequency and duration of the air sampling during abatement will be representative of the actual
            conditions during the abatement. The size of the asbestos project will be a factor in the number
            of samples required to monitor the abatement activities. In addition to OSHA compliance
            monitoring (personal sampling accomplished by the Contractor) the following minimum
            schedule of samples will be required:

            1.      Background Samples:

                    a)      Outside of building - 2.

                    b)      Adjacent Area(s) inside building - 2.

                    c)      Work Area - 3 or if areas are separated (such as rooms) at least one (1) sample per
                            area equalling a minimum of three (3).

            2.      During Abatement:

                    a)      Outside of building at the exhaust of air filtering device - 2 per shift.

                    b)      Work Area - 2 per shift.

                    c)      Adjacent area inside building - 2 per shift.

                    d)      Outside of the Equipment Decontamination Enclosure System - 1 during removal
                            of ACM waste.

            3.      Post-Abatement:

                    a)      Work Area - At least five (5) per homogenous work site or one (1) per room,
                            whichever is greater.

    C.      Post-abatement clearance air monitoring requirements are as follows:

            1.      Air sampling will not begin until at least 12 hours after wet cleaning has been completed
                    and no visible water or condensation remain.

            2.      Sampling equipment will be placed at random around the Work Area. If the Work Area
                    contains the number of rooms equivalent to the number of required samples based on
                    floor area, a sampler shall be placed in each room. When the number of rooms is greater
                    than the number of samples a representative number of rooms will be selected.

            3.      The representative samplers placed outside the Work Area but within the building will be
                                                                  02080-19

O:\3700s\3703 - Derby Demo\Contract Documents\Final Specs\02080-Asbestos Abatement.doc
                    located to avoid any air that might escape through the isolation barriers and will be
                    approximately 50 feet from the entrance to the Work Area, and 25 feet from the isolation
                    barriers.

            4.      The following aggressive air sampling procedures will be used within the Work Area
                    during all air clearance monitoring:

                    a)      Before starting the sampling pumps, direct the exhaust from forced air equipment
                            (such as a 1 horsepower leaf blower) against all walls, ceilings, floors, ledges and
                            other surfaces in the Work Area. This should take at least 5 minutes per 1000 SF of
                            floor area.

                    b)     Place a 20-inch fan in the center of the room. (Use one fan per 10,000 cubic feet of
                           room space.) Place the fan on slow speed and point it toward the ceiling.

                    c)      Start the sampling pumps and sample for the required time.

                    d)      Turn off the pump and then the fan(s) when sampling is complete.

            5.      Air volumes taken for clearance sampling shall be sufficient to accurately determine (to a
                    95 percent probability) fiber concentrations to 0.010 f/cc of air.

            6.      Each homogeneous Work Area which does not meet the clearance criteria shall be
                    thoroughly recleaned using HEPA vacuuming and/or wet cleaning, with the negative
                    pressure ventilation system in operation. New samples shall be collected in the Work
                    Area as described above. The process shall be repeated until the Work Area passes the
                    test, with the cost of repeat sampling being borne entirely by the Contractor.

            7.      For an asbestos abatement project with more than one homogeneous Work Area, the
                    release criterion shall be applied independently to each Work Area.

   D.       TEM clearance turnaround time will be 24 hours after the TEM lab receives the samples by
            overnight mail.

3.12        ACTION CRITERIA

    A.      If air samples collected outside of the Work Area during abatement activities indicate airborne
            fiber concentrations greater than original background levels or greater than 0.020 f/cc, as
            determined by Phase Contrast Microscopy, whichever is larger, an examination of the Work
            Area perimeter shall be conducted and the integrity of barriers shall be restored. Cleanup of
            surfaces outside the Work Area using HEPA vacuum equipment or wet cleaning techniques
            shall be done prior to resuming abatement activities.

                                                     END OF SECTION

1.1       SUMMARY OF WORK

The work to be performed under this project consists of providing all supervision, equipment, labor and
materials to:

          1.        Remove, transport and dispose of mercury-containing thermostats to an approved facility.
                    The thermostats contain liquid mercury within ampules, which shall be packaged,
                    labeled, marked and placarded in accordance with 49 CFR parts 172-180 and disposed of
                    as universal waste in accordance with 40 CFR 273.4.

          2.        Remove, transport and dispose of the chemical containers identified in the buildings. The
                    disposal facility shall be an approved chemical/hazardous waste treatment or disposal
                    facility.

          3.        Remove, transport and dispose of fluorescent lighting identified in the buildings.
                    Presume mercury-containing lamps, which shall be disposed of at a hazardous waste
                    landfill or sent to a lamp recycling facility. Mercury-containing lamps should never be
                    incinerated. Ballasts indicating no information as to their PCB status should be assumed
                    PCB-containing and treated as such. Federal regulations recommends packing and
                    sealing the intact ballasts in 55 gallon DOT approved drums. It is recommended that
                    non-leaking PCB-containing ballasts be incinerated at an EPA approved high temperature
                    incinerator treatment facility. Leaking PCB-containing ballasts must be incinerated at an
                    EPA approved high temperature incinerator treatment facility.

          4.        Remove for coolant recycling the air conditioning units and coolant in the refrigerators
                    identified in the buildings. Used chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) from totally enclosed heat
                    transfer equipment, including mobile air-conditioning systems, mobile refrigeration, and
                    commercial and industrial air-conditioning and refrigeration systems that use CFC as the
                    heat transfer fluid in a refrigeration cycle are not considered hazardous waste, provided
                    the refrigerant is reclaimed for further use [40 CFR 261.4(b)(12)]. A certificate of
                    refrigerant recycling shall be submitted prior to component removal and demolition.

          5.        Remove the aboveground storage tanks (ASTs) and oil product in the tanks for proper
                    transport and disposal.

                      NOTIFICATION TO BIDDERS


The contact to be awarded is subject to contract compliance requirements mandated by
Sections 4a-60 and 4a-60a of the Connecticut General Statutes; and, when the awarding
agency is the State, Sections 46a-7 I (d) and 46a-81i (d) of the Connecticut General
Statutes. There are Contract Compliance Regulations codified at Section 46a-68j-21
through 43 of the Regulations of Connecticut State Agencies which establish a procedure
for the awarding of all contracts covered by Sections 4a-60 and 46a-71(d) if the

According to Section 46a-68j-30 (9) of the Contract Compliance Regulations, every
agency awarding a contract subject to the contract compliance requirements has an
obligation to “aggressively solicit the participation of legitimate minority business
enterprises as bidders, contractors and suppliers of materials.” “Minority business
enterprise” is defined in Section 4a-60 of the Connecticut General Statutes as a business
wherein fifty-one percent or more of the capital stock, or assets belong to a person or
persons: “(1) who are active in daily affairs of the enterprise; (2) who have the power to
direct the management and policies of the enterprise; and (3) who are members of a
minority, as such term is defined in subsection (a) of Section 32-9n. “Minority” groups
are defined in Section 32-9n of the Connecticut General Statutes as “(1) Black
Americans… (2) Hispanic Americans… (3) persons who have origin in the Iberian
Peninsula.. (4) Women. (5) Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders; (6) American
Indian.” An individual with a disability is also a minority business enterprise as provided
by Section 32-9e of the Connecticut General Statutes. The above definitions apply to the
contract compliance requirements by virtue of Section 46a-68j-21 (11) of the Contract
Compliance Regulations.

The awarding agency will consider the following factors when reviewing the bidder’s
qualifications under the contract compliance requirements:

(a)    the bidder’s success in implementing an affirmative action plan;
(b)    the bidders success in developing an apprenticeship program complying with
       Sections 46a-68-1 to 46a-68-17 of the Regulations of Connecticut State Agencies,
       inclusive;
(c)    the bidder’s promise to develop and implement a successful affirmative action
       plan,
(d)    the bidder’s submission of EEO-1 data indicating that the composition of its
       workforce is at or near parity when compared to the racial and sexual composition
       of the workforce in the relevant labor market area; and
(e)    the bidder’s promise to set aside a portion of the contract for legitimate minority
       business enterprises. See section 46a-68j-30(10)(E) of the Contract Compliance
       Regulations.
