#$@! 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 general┬áprovisions of the Contract, including General and Supplementary Conditions and all other Division┬áSpecification 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 material┬ásuppliers.”

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.
