#$@! Electrical Specifications #4

Here is a new version of the “you are responsible for everything even if the engineer missed it” language. This is in a spec I was reading this morning.

“All contract documents including drawings, alternates, addenda and modifications and generalĀ provisions of the Contract, including General and Supplementary Conditions and all other DivisionĀ Specification Sections, apply to work of this section. All preceding and following sections of this
specification division are applicable to the Electrical Contractor, all sub-contractors, and all materialĀ suppliers.”

If I was to comply with this requirement, it would probably take over two weeks to finish a four plan sheet electrical estimate. Once again, make sure you have language in your proposals limiting your scope to what is shown on the electrical documents.
