The Contractor and Surety, jointly and severally, bind themselves, their heirs, executors, administrators, successors, and assigns to the Owner for the performance of the Construction Contract, which is incorporated herein by reference. 2. If the Contractor performs the Construction Contract, the Surety and the Contractor shall have no obligation under this Bond, except when applicable to participate in a conference as provided in Paragraph 3. 3. If there is no Owner Default under the Construction Contract, the Surety’s obligation under this Bond shall arise after: 3.1 The Owner first provides notice to the Contractor and the Surety that the Owner is considering declaring a Contractor Default. Such notice shall indicate whether the Owner is requesting a conference among the Owner, Contractor, and Surety to discuss the Contractor’s performance. If the Owner does not request a conference, the Surety may, within five (5) business days after receipt of the Owner’s notice, request such a conference. If the Surety timely requests a conference, the Owner shall attend. Unless the Owner agrees otherwise, any conference requested under this Paragraph 3.1 shall be held within ten (10) business days of the Surety’s receipt of the Owner’s notice. If the Owner, the Contractor, and the Surety agree, the Contractor shall be allowed a reasonable time to perform the Construction Contract, but such an agreement shall not waive the Owner’s right, if any, subsequently to declare a Contractor Default; 3.2 The Owner declares a Contractor Default, terminates the Construction Contract and notifies the Surety; and 3.3 The Owner has agreed to pay the Balance of the Contract Price in accordance with the terms of the Construction Contract to the Surety or to a contractor selected to perform the Construction Contract. 4. Failure on the part of the Owner to comply with the notice requirement in Paragraph 3.1 shall not constitute a failure to comply with a condition precedent to the Surety’s obligations, or release the Surety from its obligations, except to the extent the Surety demonstrates actual prejudice. 5. When the Owner has satisfied the conditions of Paragraph 3, the Surety shall promptly and at the Surety’s expense take one of the following actions: 5.1 Arrange for the Contractor, with the consent of the Owner, to perform and complete the Construction Contract; 5.2 Undertake to perform and complete the Construction Contract itself, through its agents or independent contractors; 5.3 Obtain bids or negotiated proposals from qualified contractors acceptable to the Owner for a contract for performance and completion of the Construction Contract, arrange for a contract to be prepared for execution by the Owner and a contractor selected with the Owners concurrence, to be secured with performance and payment bonds executed by a qualified surety equivalent to the bonds issued on the Construction Contract, and pay to the Owner the amount of damages as described in Paragraph 7 in excess of the Balance of the Contract Price incurred by the Owner as a result of the Contractor Default; or 5.4 Waive its right to perform and complete, arrange for completion, or obtain a new contractor, and with reasonable promptness under the circumstances: 5.4.1 After investigation, determine the amount for which it may be liable to the Owner and, as soon as practicable after the amount is determined, make payment to the Owner; or 5.4.2 Deny liability in whole or in part and notify the Owner, citing the reasons for denial. 6. If the Surety does not proceed as provided in Paragraph 5 with reasonable promptness, the Surety shall be deemed to be in default on this Bond seven days after receipt of an additional written notice from the Owner to the Surety demanding that the Surety perform its obligations under this Bond, and the Owner shall be entitled to enforce any remedy available to the Owner. If the Surety proceeds as provided in Paragraph 5.4, and the Owner refuses the payment or the Surety has denied liability, in whole or in part, without further notice the Owner shall be entitled to enforce any remedy available to the Owner. 7. If the Surety elects to act under Paragraph 5.1, 5.2, or 5.3, then the responsibilities of the Surety to the Owner shall not be greater than those of the Contractor under the Construction Contract, and the responsibilities of the Owner to the Surety shall not be greater than those of the Owner under the Construction Contract. Subject to the commitment by the Owner to pay the Balance of the Contract Price, the Surety is obligated, without duplication for: 7.1 the responsibilities of the Contractor for correction of defective work and completion of the Construction Contract; 7.2 additional legal, design professional, and delay costs resulting from the Contractor’s Default, and resulting from the actions or failure to act of the Surety under Paragraph 5; and 7.3 liquidated damages, or if no liquidated damages are specified in the Construction Contract, actual damages caused by delayed performance or non-performance of the Contractor. 8. If the Surety elects to act under Paragraph 5.1, 5.3, or 5.4, the Surety’s liability is limited to the amount of this Bond. 9. The Surety shall not be liable to the Owner or others for obligations of the Contractor that are unrelated to the Construction Contract, and the Balance of the Contract Price shall not be reduced or set off on account of any such unrelated obligations. No right of action shall accrue on this Bond to any person or entity other than the Owner or its heirs, executors, administrators, successors, and assigns.

If the provisions of this paragraph are void or prohibited by law, the minimum periods of limitations available to sureties as a defense in the jurisdiction of the suit shall be applicable. 12. Notice to the Surety, the Owner, or the Contractor shall be mailed or delivered to the address shown on the page on which their signature appears. 13.

The Contractor and Surety, jointly and severally, bind themselves, their heirs, executors, administrators, successors, and assigns to the Owner to pay for labor, materials, and equipment furnished for use in the performance of the Construction Contract, which is incorporated herein by reference, subject to the following terms. 2. If the Contractor promptly makes payment of all sums due to Claimants, and defends, indemnifies, and holds harmless the Owner from claims, demands, liens, or suits by any person or entity seeking payment for labor, materials, or equipment furnished for use in the performance of the Construction Contract, then the Surety and the Contractor shall have no obligation under this Bond. 3. If there is no Owner Default under the Construction Contract, the Surety’s obligation to the Owner under this Bond shall arise after the Owner has promptly notified the Contractor and the Surety (at the address described in Paragraph 13) of claims, demands, liens, or suits against the Owner or the Owner’s property by any person or entity seeking payment for labor, materials, or equipment furnished for use in the performance of the Construction Contract, and tendered defense of such claims, demands, liens, or suits to the Contractor and the Surety. 4. When the Owner has satisfied the conditions in Paragraph 3, the Surety shall promptly and at the Surety’s expense defend, indemnify, and hold harmless the Owner against a duly tendered claim, demand, lien, or suit. 5. The Surety’s obligations to a Claimant under this Bond shall arise after the following: 5.1 Claimants who do not have a direct contract with the Contractor, 5.1.1 have furnished a written notice of non- payment to the Contractor, stating with substantial accuracy the amount claimed and the name of the party to whom the materials were, or equipment was, furnished or supplied or for whom the labor was done or performed, within ninety (90) days after having last performed labor or last furnished materials or equipment included in the Claim; and 5.1.2 have sent a Claim to the Surety (at the address described in Paragraph 13). 5.2 Claimants who are employed by or have a direct contract with the Contractor have sent a Claim to the Surety (at the address described in Paragraph 13). 6. If a notice of non-payment required by Paragraph 5.1.1 is given by the Owner to the Contractor, that is sufficient to satisfy a Claimant’s obligation to furnish a written notice of non-payment under Paragraph 5.1.1. 7. When a Claimant has satisfied the conditions of Paragraph 5.1 or 5.2, whichever is applicable, the Surety shall promptly and at the Surety’s expense take the following actions: 7.1 Send an answer to the Claimant, with a copy to the Owner, within sixty (60) days after receipt of the Claim, stating the amounts that are undisputed and the basis for challenging any amounts that are disputed; and 7.2 Pay or arrange for payment of any undisputed amounts. 7.3 The Surety’s failure to discharge its obligations under Paragraph 7.1 or 7.2 shall not be deemed to constitute a waiver of defenses the Surety or Contractor may have or acquire as to a Claim, except as to undisputed amounts for which the Surety and Claimant have reached agreement. If, however, the Surety fails to discharge its obligations under Paragraph 7.1 or 7.2, the Surety shall indemnify the Claimant for the reasonable attorney’s fees the Claimant incurs thereafter to recover any sums found to be due and owing to the Claimant. 8. The Surety’s total obligation shall not exceed the amount of this Bond, plus the amount of reasonable attorney’s fees provided under Paragraph 7.3, and the amount of this Bond shall be credited for any payments made in good faith by the Surety. 9. Amounts owed by the Owner to the Contractor under the Construction Contract shall be used for the performance of the Construction Contract and to satisfy claims, if any, under any construction performance bond. By the Contractor furnishing and the Owner accepting this Bond, they agree that all funds earned by the Contractor in the performance of the Construction Contract are dedicated to satisfy obligations of the Contractor and Surety under this Bond, subject to the Owner’s priority to use the funds for the completion of the work. 10. The Surety shall not be liable to the Owner, Claimants, or others for obligations of the Contractor that are unrelated to the Construction Contract. The Owner shall not be liable for the payment of any costs or expenses of any Claimant under this Bond, and shall have under this Bond no obligation to make payments to or give notice on behalf of Claimants, or otherwise have any obligations to Claimants under this Bond. 11. The Surety hereby waives notice of any change, including changes of time, to the Construction Contract or to related subcontracts, purchase orders, and other obligations.

No suit or action shall be commenced by a Claimant under this Bond other than in a court of competent jurisdiction in the state in which the project that is the subject of the Construction Contract is located or after the expiration of one year from the date (1) on which the Claimant sent a Claim to the Surety pursuant to Paragraph 5.1.2 or 5.2, or (2) on which the last labor or service was performed by anyone or the last materials or equipment were furnished by anyone under the Construction Contract, whichever of (1) or (2) first occurs. If the provisions of this paragraph are void or prohibited by law, the minimum period of limitation available to sureties as a defense in the jurisdiction of the suit shall be applicable. 13. Notice and Claims to the Surety, the Owner, or the Contractor shall be mailed or delivered to the address shown on the page on which their signature appears. Actual receipt of notice or Claims, however accomplished, shall be sufficient compliance as of the date received. 14. When this Bond has been furnished to comply with a statutory or other legal requirement in the location where the construction was to be performed, any provision in this Bond conflicting with said statutory or legal requirement shall be deemed deleted herefrom and provisions conforming to such statutory or other legal requirement shall be deemed incorporated herein. When so furnished, the intent is that this Bond shall be construed as a statutory bond and not as a common law bond. 15.

All materials and equipment shall be stored, applied, installed, connected, erected,  protected, used, cleaned, and conditioned in accordance with instructions of the applicable  Supplier, except as otherwise may be provided in the Contract Documents.  7.04 “Or Equals”  A. Whenever an item of material or equipment is specified or described in the Contract  Documents by using the name of a proprietary item or the name of a particular Supplier,  the Contract Price has been based upon Contractor furnishing such item as specified. The  specification or description of such an item is intended to establish the type, function,  appearance, and quality required. Unless the specification or description contains or is  followed by words reading that no like, equivalent, or “or equal” item is permitted,  Contractor may request that Engineer authorize the use of other items of material or  equipment, or items from other proposed suppliers under the circumstances described  below.  1. If Engineer in its sole discretion determines that an item of material or equipment  proposed by Contractor is functionally equal to that named and sufficiently similar so  that no change in related Work will be required, Engineer shall deem it an “or equal”  item. For the purposes of this paragraph, a proposed item of material or equipment  will be considered functionally equal to an item so named if:  a. in the exercise of reasonable judgment Engineer determines that:  1) it is at least equal in materials of construction, quality, durability,  appearance, strength, and design characteristics;  2) it will reliably perform at least equally well the function and achieve the  results imposed by the design concept of the completed Project as a  functioning whole;  3) it has a proven record of performance and availability of responsive service;  and  4) it is not objectionable to Owner.  b. Contractor certifies that, if approved and incorporated into the Work:  1) there will be no increase in cost to the Owner or increase in Contract Times;  and  2) it will conform substantially to the detailed requirements of the item named  in the Contract Documents.  B. Contractor’s Expense: Contractor shall provide all data in support of any proposed “or  equal” item at Contractor’s expense.  C. Engineer’s Evaluation and Determination: Engineer will be allowed a reasonable time to  evaluate each “or‐equal” request.  Engineer may require Contractor to furnish additional  data about the proposed “or‐equal” item. Engineer will be the sole judge of acceptability.  No “or‐equal” item will be ordered, furnished, installed, or utilized until Engineer’s review is  complete and Engineer determines that the proposed item is an “or‐equal”, which will be  evidenced by an approved Shop Drawing or other written communication. Engineer will  advise Contractor in writing of any negative determination.  EJCDC® C‐700, Standard General Conditions of the Construction Contract.  Copyright © 2013 National Society of Professional Engineers, American Council of Engineering Companies,  and American Society of Civil Engineers.  All rights reserved.             Page 28 of 65  D. Effect of Engineer’s Determination: Neither approval nor denial of an “or‐equal” request  shall result in any change in Contract Price. The Engineer’s denial of an “or‐equal” request  shall be final and binding, and may not be reversed through an appeal under any provision  of the Contract Documents.  E. Treatment as a Substitution Request: If Engineer determines that an item of material or  equipment proposed by Contractor does not qualify as an “or‐equal” item, Contractor may  request that Engineer considered the proposed item as a substitute pursuant to Paragraph  7.05.  7.05 Substitutes  A. Unless the specification or description of an item of material or equipment required to be  furnished under the Contract Documents contains or is followed by words reading that no  substitution is permitted, Contractor may request that Engineer authorize the use of other  items of material or equipment under the circumstances described below. To the extent  possible such requests shall be made before commencement of related construction at the  Site.  1. Contractor shall submit sufficient information as provided below to allow Engineer to  determine if the item of material or equipment proposed is functionally equivalent to  that named and an acceptable substitute therefor. Engineer will not accept requests  for review of proposed substitute items of material or equipment from anyone other  than Contractor.  2. The requirements for review by Engineer will be as set forth in Paragraph 7.05.B, as  supplemented by the Specifications, and as Engineer may decide is appropriate under  the circumstances.  3. Contractor shall make written application to Engineer for review of a proposed  substitute item of material or equipment that Contractor seeks to furnish or use. The  application:  a. shall certify that the proposed substitute item will:  1) perform adequately the functions and achieve the results called for by the  general design,  2) be similar in substance to that specified, and  3) be suited to the same use as that specified.  b. will state:  1) the extent, if any, to which the use of the proposed substitute item will  necessitate a change in Contract Times,  2) whether use of the proposed substitute item in the Work will require a  change in any of the Contract Documents (or in the provisions of any other  direct contract with Owner for other work on the Project) to adapt the  design to the proposed substitute item, and  3) whether incorporation or use of the proposed substitute item in connection  with the Work is subject to payment of any license fee or royalty.  c. will identify:  1) all variations of the proposed substitute item from that specified, and  EJCDC® C‐700, Standard General Conditions of the Construction Contract.  Copyright © 2013 National Society of Professional Engineers, American Council of Engineering Companies,  and American Society of Civil Engineers.  All rights reserved.             Page 29 of 65  2) available engineering, sales, maintenance, repair, and replacement services.  d. shall contain an itemized estimate of all costs or credits that will result directly or  indirectly from use of such substitute item, including but not limited to changes in  Contract Price, shared savings, costs of redesign, and claims of other contractors  affected by any resulting change.  B. Engineer’s Evaluation and Determination: Engineer will be allowed a reasonable time to  evaluate each substitute request, and to obtain comments and direction from Owner.  Engineer may require Contractor to furnish additional data about the proposed substitute  item. Engineer will be the sole judge of acceptability. No substitute will be ordered,  furnished, installed, or utilized until Engineer’s review is complete and Engineer determines  that the proposed item is an acceptable substitute. Engineer’s determination will be  evidenced by a Field Order or a proposed Change Order accounting for the substitution  itself and all related impacts, including changes in Contract Price or Contract Times.  Engineer will advise Contractor in writing of any negative determination.  C. Special Guarantee: Owner may require Contractor to furnish at Contractor’s expense a  special performance guarantee or other surety with respect to any substitute.  D. Reimbursement of Engineer’s Cost: Engineer will record Engineer’s costs in evaluating a  substitute proposed or submitted by Contractor. Whether or not Engineer approves a  substitute so proposed or submitted by Contractor, Contractor shall reimburse Owner for  the reasonable charges of Engineer for evaluating each such proposed substitute.  Contractor shall also reimburse Owner for the reasonable charges of Engineer for making  changes in the Contract Documents (or in the provisions of any other direct contract with  Owner) resulting from the acceptance of each proposed substitute.  E. Contractor’s Expense: Contractor shall provide all data in support of any proposed  substitute at Contractor’s expense.  F. Effect of Engineer’s Determination: If Engineer approves the substitution request,  Contractor shall execute the proposed Change Order and proceed with the substitution.  The Engineer’s denial of a substitution request shall be final and binding, and may not be  reversed through an appeal under any provision of the Contract Documents. Contractor  may challenge the scope of reimbursement costs imposed under Paragraph 7.05.D, by  timely submittal of a Change Proposal.  7.06 Concerning Subcontractors, Suppliers, and Others  A. Contractor may retain Subcontractors and Suppliers for the performance of parts of the  Work.  Such Subcontractors and Suppliers must be acceptable to Owner.  B. Contractor shall retain specific Subcontractors, Suppliers, or other individuals or entities for  the performance of designated parts of the Work if required by the Contract to do so.  C. Subsequent to the submittal of Contractor’s Bid or final negotiation of the terms of the  Contract, Owner may not require Contractor to retain any Subcontractor, Supplier, or other  individual or entity to furnish or perform any of the Work against which Contractor has  reasonable objection.  D. Prior to entry into any binding subcontract or purchase order, Contractor shall submit to  Owner the identity of the proposed Subcontractor or Supplier (unless Owner has already  deemed such proposed Subcontractor or Supplier acceptable, during the bidding process or  otherwise). Such proposed Subcontractor or Supplier shall be deemed acceptable to Owner  unless Owner raises a substantive, reasonable objection within five days.  EJCDC® C‐700, Standard General Conditions of the Construction Contract.  Copyright © 2013 National Society of Professional Engineers, American Council of Engineering Companies,  and American Society of Civil Engineers.  All rights reserved.             Page 30 of 65  E. Owner may require the replacement of any Subcontractor, Supplier, or other individual or  entity retained by Contractor to perform any part of the Work. Owner also may require  Contractor to retain specific replacements; provided, however, that Owner may not require  a replacement to which Contractor has a reasonable objection. If Contractor has submitted  the identity of certain Subcontractors, Suppliers, or other individuals or entities for  acceptance by Owner, and Owner has accepted it (either in writing or by failing to make  written objection thereto), then Owner may subsequently revoke the acceptance of any  such Subcontractor, Supplier, or other individual or entity so identified solely on the basis  of substantive, reasonable objection after due investigation. Contractor shall submit an  acceptable replacement for the rejected Subcontractor, Supplier, or other individual or  entity.  F. If Owner requires the replacement of any Subcontractor, Supplier, or other individual or  entity retained by Contractor to perform any part of the Work, then Contractor shall be  entitled to an adjustment in Contract Price or Contract Times, or both, with respect to the  replacement; and Contractor shall initiate a Change Proposal for such adjustment within 30  days of Owner’s requirement of replacement.  G. No acceptance by Owner of any such Subcontractor, Supplier, or other individual or entity,  whether initially or as a replacement, shall constitute a waiver of the right of Owner to the  completion of the Work in accordance with the Contract Documents.  H. On a monthly basis Contractor shall submit to Engineer a complete list of all Subcontractors  and Suppliers having a direct contract with Contractor, and of all other Subcontractors and  Suppliers known to Contractor at the time of submittal.  I. Contractor shall be fully responsible to Owner and Engineer for all acts and omissions of the  Subcontractors, Suppliers, and other individuals or entities performing or furnishing any of  the Work just as Contractor is responsible for Contractor’s own acts and omissions.  J.

The divisions and sections of the Specifications and the identifications of any Drawings shall  not control Contractor in dividing the Work among Subcontractors or Suppliers or  delineating the Work to be performed by any specific trade.  M. All Work performed for Contractor by a Subcontractor or Supplier shall be pursuant to an  appropriate contractual agreement that specifically binds the Subcontractor or Supplier to  the applicable terms and conditions of the Contract Documents for the benefit of Owner  and Engineer.  N. Owner may furnish to any Subcontractor or Supplier, to the extent practicable, information  about amounts paid to Contractor on account of Work performed for Contractor by the  particular Subcontractor or Supplier.  EJCDC® C‐700, Standard General Conditions of the Construction Contract.  Copyright © 2013 National Society of Professional Engineers, American Council of Engineering Companies,  and American Society of Civil Engineers.  All rights reserved.             Page 31 of 65  O.

Documentation: Whenever the Cost of the Work for any purpose is to be determined  pursuant to this Article 13, Contractor will establish and maintain records thereof in  accordance with generally accepted accounting practices and submit in a form acceptable  to Engineer an itemized cost breakdown together with supporting data.  13.02 Allowances  A. It is understood that Contractor has included in the Contract Price all allowances so named  in the Contract Documents and shall cause the Work so covered to be performed for such  sums and by such persons or entities as may be acceptable to Owner and Engineer.  EJCDC® C‐700, Standard General Conditions of the Construction Contract.  Copyright © 2013 National Society of Professional Engineers, American Council of Engineering Companies,  and American Society of Civil Engineers.  All rights reserved.             Page 51 of 65  B. Cash Allowances: Contractor agrees that:  1. the cash allowances include the cost to Contractor (less any applicable trade  discounts) of materials and equipment required by the allowances to be delivered at  the Site, and all applicable taxes; and  2. Contractor’s costs for unloading and handling on the Site, labor, installation, overhead,  profit, and other expenses contemplated for the cash allowances have been included  in the Contract Price and not in the allowances, and no demand for additional  payment on account of any of the foregoing will be valid.  C. Contingency Allowance: Contractor agrees that a contingency allowance, if any, is for the  sole use of Owner to cover unanticipated costs.  D. Prior to final payment, an appropriate Change Order will be issued as recommended by  Engineer to reflect actual amounts due Contractor on account of Work covered by  allowances, and the Contract Price shall be correspondingly adjusted.  13.03 Unit Price Work  A. Where the Contract Documents provide that all or part of the Work is to be Unit Price  Work, initially the Contract Price will be deemed to include for all Unit Price Work an  amount equal to the sum of the unit price for each separately identified item of Unit Price  Work times the estimated quantity of each item as indicated in the Agreement.  B. The estimated quantities of items of Unit Price Work are not guaranteed and are solely for  the purpose of comparison of Bids and determining an initial Contract Price. Payments to  Contractor for Unit Price Work will be based on actual quantities.  C. Each unit price will be deemed to include an amount considered by Contractor to be  adequate to cover Contractor’s overhead and profit for each separately identified item.  D. Engineer will determine the actual quantities and classifications of Unit Price Work  performed by Contractor.  Engineer will review with Contractor the Engineer’s preliminary  determinations on such matters before rendering a written decision thereon (by  recommendation of an Application for Payment or otherwise). Engineer’s written decision  thereon will be final and binding (except as modified by Engineer to reflect changed factual  conditions or more accurate data) upon Owner and Contractor, subject to the provisions of  the following paragraph.  E. Within 30 days of Engineer’s written decision under the preceding paragraph, Contractor  may submit a Change Proposal, or Owner may file a Claim, seeking an adjustment in the  Contract Price if:  1. the quantity of any item of Unit Price Work performed by Contractor differs materially  and significantly from the estimated quantity of such item indicated in the Agreement;  2. there is no corresponding adjustment with respect to any other item of Work; and  3. Contractor believes that it is entitled to an increase in Contract Price as a result of  having incurred additional expense or Owner believes that Owner is entitled to a  decrease in Contract Price, and the parties are unable to agree as to the amount of any  such increase or decrease.  EJCDC® C‐700, Standard General Conditions of the Construction Contract.  Copyright © 2013 National Society of Professional Engineers, American Council of Engineering Companies,  and American Society of Civil Engineers.  All rights reserved.             Page 52 of 65  ARTICLE 14 – TESTS AND INSPECTIONS; CORRECTION, REMOVAL OR ACCEPTANCE OF DEFECTIVE  WORK  14.01 Access to Work  A.

If Laws or Regulations of any public body having jurisdiction require any Work (or part  thereof) specifically to be inspected, tested, or approved by an employee or other  representative of such public body, Contractor shall assume full responsibility for arranging  and obtaining such inspections, tests, or approvals, pay all costs in connection therewith,  and furnish Engineer the required certificates of inspection or approval.  D. Contractor shall be responsible for arranging, obtaining, and paying for all inspections and  tests required:  1. by the Contract Documents, unless the Contract Documents expressly allocate  responsibility for a specific inspection or test to Owner;  2. to attain Owner’s and Engineer’s acceptance of materials or equipment to be  incorporated in the Work;  3. by manufacturers of equipment furnished under the Contract Documents;  4. for testing, adjusting, and balancing of mechanical, electrical, and other equipment to  be incorporated into the Work; and  5. for acceptance of materials, mix designs, or equipment submitted for approval prior to  Contractor’s purchase thereof for incorporation in the Work.  Such inspections and tests shall be performed by independent inspectors, testing  laboratories, or other qualified individuals or entities acceptable to Owner and Engineer.  E. If the Contract Documents require the Work (or part thereof) to be approved by Owner,  Engineer, or another designated individual or entity, then Contractor shall assume full  responsibility for arranging and obtaining such approvals.  F. If any Work (or the work of others) that is to be inspected, tested, or approved is covered  by Contractor without written concurrence of Engineer, Contractor shall, if requested by  Engineer, uncover such Work for observation. Such uncovering shall be at Contractor’s  expense unless Contractor had given Engineer timely notice of Contractor’s intention to  EJCDC® C‐700, Standard General Conditions of the Construction Contract.  Copyright © 2013 National Society of Professional Engineers, American Council of Engineering Companies,  and American Society of Civil Engineers.  All rights reserved.             Page 53 of 65  cover the same and Engineer had not acted with reasonable promptness in response to  such notice.  14.03 Defective Work  A. Contractor’s Obligation: It is Contractor’s obligation to assure that the Work is not  defective.  B. Engineer’s Authority: Engineer has the authority to determine whether Work is defective,  and to reject defective Work.  C. Notice of Defects: Prompt notice of all defective Work of which Owner or Engineer has  actual knowledge will be given to Contractor.  D. Correction, or Removal and Replacement: Promptly after receipt of written notice of  defective Work, Contractor shall correct all such defective Work, whether or not fabricated,  installed, or completed, or, if Engineer has rejected the defective Work, remove it from the  Project and replace it with Work that is not defective.  E. Preservation of Warranties: When correcting defective Work, Contractor shall take no  action that would void or otherwise impair Owner’s special warranty and guarantee, if any,  on said Work.  F. Costs and Damages: In addition to its correction, removal, and replacement obligations  with respect to defective Work, Contractor shall pay all claims, costs, losses, and damages  arising out of or relating to defective Work, including but not limited to the cost of the  inspection, testing, correction, removal, replacement, or reconstruction of such defective  Work, fines levied against Owner by governmental authorities because the Work is  defective, and the costs of repair or replacement of work of others resulting from defective  Work. Prior to final payment, if Owner and Contractor are unable to agree as to the  measure of such claims, costs, losses, and damages resulting from defective Work, then  Owner may impose a reasonable set‐off against payments due under Article 15.  14.04 Acceptance of Defective Work  A. If, instead of requiring correction or removal and replacement of defective Work, Owner  prefers to accept it, Owner may do so (subject, if such acceptance occurs prior to final  payment, to Engineer’s confirmation that such acceptance is in general accord with the  design intent and applicable engineering principles, and will not endanger public safety).  Contractor shall pay all claims, costs, losses, and damages attributable to Owner’s  evaluation of and determination to accept such defective Work (such costs to be approved  by Engineer as to reasonableness), and for the diminished value of the Work to the extent  not otherwise paid by Contractor. If any such acceptance occurs prior to final payment, the  necessary revisions in the Contract Documents with respect to the Work shall be  incorporated in a Change Order. If the parties are unable to agree as to the decrease in the  Contract Price, reflecting the diminished value of Work so accepted, then Owner may  impose a reasonable set‐off against payments due under Article 15. If the acceptance of  defective Work occurs after final payment, Contractor shall pay an appropriate amount to  Owner.  14.05 Uncovering Work  A. Engineer has the authority to require special inspection or testing of the Work, whether or  not the Work is fabricated, installed, or completed.  EJCDC® C‐700, Standard General Conditions of the Construction Contract.  Copyright © 2013 National Society of Professional Engineers, American Council of Engineering Companies,  and American Society of Civil Engineers.  All rights reserved.             Page 54 of 65  B. If any Work is covered contrary to the written request of Engineer, then Contractor shall, if  requested by Engineer, uncover such Work for Engineer’s observation, and then replace  the covering, all at Contractor’s expense.  C. If Engineer considers it necessary or advisable that covered Work be observed by Engineer  or inspected or tested by others, then Contractor, at Engineer’s request, shall uncover,  expose, or otherwise make available for observation, inspection, or testing as Engineer may  require, that portion of the Work in question, and provide all necessary labor, material, and  equipment.  1. If it is found that the uncovered Work is defective, Contractor shall be responsible for  all claims, costs, losses, and damages arising out of or relating to such uncovering,  exposure, observation, inspection, and testing, and of satisfactory replacement or  reconstruction (including but not limited to all costs of repair or replacement of work  of others); and pending Contractor’s full discharge of this responsibility the Owner  shall be entitled to impose a reasonable set‐off against payments due under Article 15.  2. If the uncovered Work is not found to be defective, Contractor shall be allowed an  increase in the Contract Price or an extension of the Contract Times, or both, directly  attributable to such uncovering, exposure, observation, inspection, testing,  replacement, and reconstruction. If the parties are unable to agree as to the amount  or extent thereof, then Contractor may submit a Change Proposal within 30 days of  the determination that the Work is not defective.  14.06 Owner May Stop the Work  A. If the Work is defective, or Contractor fails to supply sufficient skilled workers or suitable  materials or equipment, or fails to perform the Work in such a way that the completed  Work will conform to the Contract Documents, then Owner may order Contractor to stop  the Work, or any portion thereof, until the cause for such order has been eliminated;  however, this right of Owner to stop the Work shall not give rise to any duty on the part of  Owner to exercise this right for the benefit of Contractor, any Subcontractor, any Supplier,  any other individual or entity, or any surety for, or employee or agent of any of them.  14.07 Owner May Correct Defective Work  A. If Contractor fails within a reasonable time after written notice from Engineer to correct  defective Work, or to remove and replace rejected Work as required by Engineer, or if  Contractor fails to perform the Work in accordance with the Contract Documents, or if  Contractor fails to comply with any other provision of the Contract Documents, then Owner  may, after seven days written notice to Contractor, correct or remedy any such deficiency.  B. In exercising the rights and remedies under this Paragraph 14.07, Owner shall proceed  expeditiously. In connection with such corrective or remedial action, Owner may exclude  Contractor from all or part of the Site, take possession of all or part of the Work and  suspend Contractor’s services related thereto, and incorporate in the Work all materials  and equipment stored at the Site or for which Owner has paid Contractor but which are  stored elsewhere. Contractor shall allow Owner, Owner’s representatives, agents and  employees, Owner’s other contractors, and Engineer and Engineer’s consultants access to  the Site to enable Owner to exercise the rights and remedies under this paragraph.  C. All claims, costs, losses, and damages incurred or sustained by Owner in exercising the  rights and remedies under this Paragraph 14.07 will be charged against Contractor as set‐ offs against payments due under Article 15. Such claims, costs, losses and damages will  EJCDC® C‐700, Standard General Conditions of the Construction Contract.  Copyright © 2013 National Society of Professional Engineers, American Council of Engineering Companies,  and American Society of Civil Engineers.  All rights reserved.             Page 55 of 65  include but not be limited to all costs of repair, or replacement of work of others destroyed  or damaged by correction, removal, or replacement of Contractor’s defective Work.  D. Contractor shall not be allowed an extension of the Contract Times because of any delay in  the performance of the Work attributable to the exercise by Owner of Owner’s rights and  remedies under this Paragraph 14.07.  ARTICLE 15 – PAYMENTS TO CONTRACTOR; SET‐OFFS; COMPLETION; CORRECTION PERIOD  15.01 Progress Payments  A. Basis for Progress Payments: The Schedule of Values established as provided in Article 2 will  serve as the basis for progress payments and will be incorporated into a form of Application  for Payment acceptable to Engineer. Progress payments on account of Unit Price Work will  be based on the number of units completed during the pay period, as determined under  the provisions of Paragraph 13.03. Progress payments for cost‐based Work will be based on  Cost of the Work completed by Contractor during the pay period.  B. Applications for Payments:  1. At least 20 days before the date established in the Agreement for each progress  payment (but not more often than once a month), Contractor shall submit to Engineer  for review an Application for Payment filled out and signed by Contractor covering the  Work completed as of the date of the Application and accompanied by such  supporting documentation as is required by the Contract Documents. If payment is  requested on the basis of materials and equipment not incorporated in the Work but  delivered and suitably stored at the Site or at another location agreed to in writing, the  Application for Payment shall also be accompanied by a bill of sale, invoice, or other  documentation warranting that Owner has received the materials and equipment free  and clear of all Liens, and evidence that the materials and equipment are covered by  appropriate property insurance, a warehouse bond, or other arrangements to protect  Owner’s interest therein, all of which must be satisfactory to Owner.  2. Beginning with the second Application for Payment, each Application shall include an  affidavit of Contractor stating that all previous progress payments received on account  of the Work have been applied on account to discharge Contractor’s legitimate  obligations associated with prior Applications for Payment.  3. The amount of retainage with respect to progress payments will be as stipulated in the  Agreement.  C. Review of Applications:  1. Engineer will, within 10 days after receipt of each Application for Payment, including  each resubmittal, either indicate in writing a recommendation of payment and present  the Application to Owner, or return the Application to Contractor indicating in writing  Engineer’s reasons for refusing to recommend payment. In the latter case, Contractor  may make the necessary corrections and resubmit the Application.  2. Engineer’s recommendation of any payment requested in an Application for Payment  will constitute a representation by Engineer to Owner, based on Engineer’s  observations of the executed Work as an experienced and qualified design  professional, and on Engineer’s review of the Application for Payment and the  accompanying data and schedules, that to the best of Engineer’s knowledge,  information and belief:  EJCDC® C‐700, Standard General Conditions of the Construction Contract.  Copyright © 2013 National Society of Professional Engineers, American Council of Engineering Companies,  and American Society of Civil Engineers.  All rights reserved.             Page 56 of 65  a. the Work has progressed to the point indicated;  b. the quality of the Work is generally in accordance with the Contract Documents  (subject to an evaluation of the Work as a functioning whole prior to or upon  Substantial Completion, the results of any subsequent tests called for in the  Contract Documents, a final determination of quantities and classifications for  Unit Price Work under Paragraph 13.03, and any other qualifications stated in the  recommendation); and  c. the conditions precedent to Contractor’s being entitled to such payment appear  to have been fulfilled in so far as it is Engineer’s responsibility to observe the  Work.  3. By recommending any such payment Engineer will not thereby be deemed to have  represented that:  a. inspections made to check the quality or the quantity of the Work as it has been  performed have been exhaustive, extended to every aspect of the Work in  progress, or involved detailed inspections of the Work beyond the responsibilities  specifically assigned to Engineer in the Contract; or  b. there may not be other matters or issues between the parties that might entitle  Contractor to be paid additionally by Owner or entitle Owner to withhold  payment to Contractor.  4. Neither Engineer’s review of Contractor’s Work for the purposes of recommending  payments nor Engineer’s recommendation of any payment, including final payment,  will impose responsibility on Engineer:  a. to supervise, direct, or control the Work, or  b. for the means, methods, techniques, sequences, or procedures of construction,  or the safety precautions and programs incident thereto, or  c. for Contractor’s failure to comply with Laws and Regulations applicable to  Contractor’s performance of the Work, or  d. to make any examination to ascertain how or for what purposes Contractor has  used the money paid on account of the Contract Price, or  e. to determine that title to any of the Work, materials, or equipment has passed to  Owner free and clear of any Liens.  5. Engineer may refuse to recommend the whole or any part of any payment if, in  Engineer’s opinion, it would be incorrect to make the representations to Owner stated  in Paragraph 15.01.C.2.  6. Engineer will recommend reductions in payment (set‐offs) necessary in Engineer’s  opinion to protect Owner from loss because:  a. the Work is defective, requiring correction or replacement;  b. the Contract Price has been reduced by Change Orders;  c. Owner has been required to correct defective Work in accordance with Paragraph  14.07, or has accepted defective Work pursuant to Paragraph 14.04;  d.

Prior to Substantial Completion of all the Work, Owner may use or occupy any substantially  completed part of the Work which has specifically been identified in the Contract  Documents, or which Owner, Engineer, and Contractor agree constitutes a separately  functioning and usable part of the Work that can be used by Owner for its intended  purpose without significant interference with Contractor’s performance of the remainder  of the Work, subject to the following conditions:  1. At any time Owner may request in writing that Contractor permit Owner to use or  occupy any such part of the Work that Owner believes to be substantially complete. If  and when Contractor agrees that such part of the Work is substantially complete,  Contractor, Owner, and Engineer will follow the procedures of Paragraph 15.03.A  through E for that part of the Work.  2.

Within a reasonable time after either such request, Owner, Contractor, and Engineer  shall make an inspection of that part of the Work to determine its status of  completion. If Engineer does not consider that part of the Work to be substantially  complete, Engineer will notify Owner and Contractor in writing giving the reasons  therefor. If Engineer considers that part of the Work to be substantially complete, the  provisions of Paragraph 15.03 will apply with respect to certification of Substantial  Completion of that part of the Work and the division of responsibility in respect  thereof and access thereto.  4. No use or occupancy or separate operation of part of the Work may occur prior to  compliance with the requirements of Paragraph 6.05 regarding builder’s risk or other  property insurance.  15.05 Final Inspection  A.

In lieu of the releases or waivers of Liens specified in Paragraph 15.06.A.2 and as  approved by Owner, Contractor may furnish receipts or releases in full and an affidavit  of Contractor that: (a) the releases and receipts include all labor, services, material,  and equipment for which a Lien could be filed; and (b) all payrolls, material and  equipment bills, and other indebtedness connected with the Work for which Owner  might in any way be responsible, or which might in any way result in liens or other  burdens on Owner's property, have been paid or otherwise satisfied. If any  Subcontractor or Supplier fails to furnish such a release or receipt in full, Contractor  may furnish a bond or other collateral satisfactory to Owner to indemnify Owner  against any Lien, or Owner at its option may issue joint checks payable to Contractor  and specified Subcontractors and Suppliers.  B. Engineer’s Review of Application and Acceptance:  1. If, on the basis of Engineer’s observation of the Work during construction and final  inspection, and Engineer’s review of the final Application for Payment and  accompanying documentation as required by the Contract Documents, Engineer is  satisfied that the Work has been completed and Contractor’s other obligations under  the Contract have been fulfilled, Engineer will, within ten days after receipt of the final  Application for Payment, indicate in writing Engineer’s recommendation of final  payment and present the Application for Payment to Owner for payment. Such  recommendation shall account for any set‐offs against payment that are necessary in  Engineer’s opinion to protect Owner from loss for the reasons stated above with  respect to progress payments. At the same time Engineer will also give written notice  to Owner and Contractor that the Work is acceptable, subject to the provisions of  Paragraph 15.07. Otherwise, Engineer will return the Application for Payment to  Contractor, indicating in writing the reasons for refusing to recommend final payment,  in which case Contractor shall make the necessary corrections and resubmit the  Application for Payment.  C. Completion of Work: The Work is complete (subject to surviving obligations) when it is  ready for final payment as established by the Engineer’s written recommendation of final  payment.  D. Payment Becomes Due: Thirty days after the presentation to Owner of the final Application  for Payment and accompanying documentation, the amount recommended by Engineer  (less any further sum Owner is entitled to set off against Engineer’s recommendation,  EJCDC® C‐700, Standard General Conditions of the Construction Contract.  Copyright © 2013 National Society of Professional Engineers, American Council of Engineering Companies,  and American Society of Civil Engineers.  All rights reserved.             Page 61 of 65  including but not limited to set‐offs for liquidated damages and set‐offs allowed under the  provisions above with respect to progress payments) will become due and shall be paid by  Owner to Contractor.  15.07 Waiver of Claims  A. The making of final payment will not constitute a waiver by Owner of claims or rights  against Contractor. Owner expressly reserves claims and rights arising from unsettled Liens,  from defective Work appearing after final inspection pursuant to Paragraph 15.05, from  Contractor’s failure to comply with the Contract Documents or the terms of any special  guarantees specified therein, from outstanding Claims by Owner, or from Contractor’s  continuing obligations under the Contract Documents.  B. The acceptance of final payment by Contractor will constitute a waiver by Contractor of all  claims and rights against Owner other than those pending matters that have been duly  submitted or appealed under the provisions of Article 17.  15.08 Correction Period  A. If within one year after the date of Substantial Completion (or such longer period of time as  may be prescribed by the terms of any applicable special guarantee required by the  Contract Documents, or by any specific provision of the Contract Documents), any Work is  found to be defective, or if the repair of any damages to the Site, adjacent areas that  Contractor has arranged to use through construction easements or otherwise, and other  adjacent areas used by Contractor as permitted by Laws and Regulations, is found to be  defective, then Contractor shall promptly, without cost to Owner and in accordance with  Owner’s written instructions:  1. correct the defective repairs to the Site or such other adjacent areas;  2. correct such defective Work;  3. if the defective Work has been rejected by Owner, remove it from the Project and  replace it with Work that is not defective, and  4. satisfactorily correct or repair or remove and replace any damage to other Work, to  the work of others, or to other land or areas resulting therefrom.  B. If Contractor does not promptly comply with the terms of Owner’s written instructions, or  in an emergency where delay would cause serious risk of loss or damage, Owner may have  the defective Work corrected or repaired or may have the rejected Work removed and  replaced. Contractor shall pay all claims, costs, losses, and damages (including but not  limited to all fees and charges of engineers, architects, attorneys, and other professionals  and all court or arbitration or other dispute resolution costs) arising out of or relating to  such correction or repair or such removal and replacement (including but not limited to all  costs of repair or replacement of work of others).  C. In special circumstances where a particular item of equipment is placed in continuous  service before Substantial Completion of all the Work, the correction period for that item  may start to run from an earlier date if so provided in the Specifications.    D. Where defective Work (and damage to other Work resulting therefrom) has been corrected  or removed and replaced under this paragraph, the correction period hereunder with  respect to such Work will be extended for an additional period of one year after such  correction or removal and replacement has been satisfactorily completed.  EJCDC® C‐700, Standard General Conditions of the Construction Contract.  Copyright © 2013 National Society of Professional Engineers, American Council of Engineering Companies,  and American Society of Civil Engineers.  All rights reserved.             Page 62 of 65  E.

At any time and without cause, Owner may suspend the Work or any portion thereof for a  period of not more than 90 consecutive days by written notice to Contractor and Engineer.  Such notice will fix the date on which Work will be resumed. Contractor shall resume the  Work on the date so fixed. Contractor shall be entitled to an adjustment in the Contract  Price or an extension of the Contract Times, or both, directly attributable to any such  suspension. Any Change Proposal seeking such adjustments shall be submitted no later  than 30 days after the date fixed for resumption of Work.  16.02 Owner May Terminate for Cause  A. The occurrence of any one or more of the following events will constitute a default by  Contractor and justify termination for cause:  1. Contractor’s persistent failure to perform the Work in accordance with the Contract  Documents (including, but not limited to, failure to supply sufficient skilled workers or  suitable materials or equipment or failure to adhere to the Progress Schedule);  2.

Contractor’s disregard of Laws or Regulations of any public body having jurisdiction; or  4. Contractor’s repeated disregard of the authority of Owner or Engineer.  B. If one or more of the events identified in Paragraph 16.02.A occurs, then after giving  Contractor (and any surety) ten days written notice that Owner is considering a declaration  that Contractor is in default and termination of the contract, Owner may proceed to:  1. declare Contractor to be in default, and give Contractor (and any surety) notice that  the Contract is terminated; and  2. enforce the rights available to Owner under any applicable performance bond.  C. Subject to the terms and operation of any applicable performance bond, if Owner has  terminated the Contract for cause, Owner may exclude Contractor from the Site, take  possession of the Work, incorporate in the Work all materials and equipment stored at the  Site or for which Owner has paid Contractor but which are stored elsewhere, and complete  the Work as Owner may deem expedient.  D. Owner may not proceed with termination of the Contract under Paragraph 16.02.B if  Contractor within seven days of receipt of notice of intent to terminate begins to correct its  failure to perform and proceeds diligently to cure such failure.  E. If Owner proceeds as provided in Paragraph 16.02.B, Contractor shall not be entitled to  receive any further payment until the Work is completed. If the unpaid balance of the  Contract Price exceeds the cost to complete the Work, including all related claims, costs,  losses, and damages (including but not limited to all fees and charges of engineers,  architects, attorneys, and other professionals) sustained by Owner, such excess will be paid  to Contractor. If the cost to complete the Work including such related claims, costs, losses,  EJCDC® C‐700, Standard General Conditions of the Construction Contract.  Copyright © 2013 National Society of Professional Engineers, American Council of Engineering Companies,  and American Society of Civil Engineers.  All rights reserved.             Page 63 of 65  and damages exceeds such unpaid balance, Contractor shall pay the difference to Owner.  Such claims, costs, losses, and damages incurred by Owner will be reviewed by Engineer as  to their reasonableness and, when so approved by Engineer, incorporated in a Change  Order. When exercising any rights or remedies under this paragraph, Owner shall not be  required to obtain the lowest price for the Work performed.  F.

Director Awarding Authority:City of Northampton Dept. of Central Services City/Town:Contract Number:NORTHAMPTON Description of Work: Job Location:Old South Street Information about Prevailing Wage Schedules for Awarding Authorities and Contractors •This wage schedule applies only to the specific project referenced at the top of this page and uniquely identified by the “Wage Request Number” on all pages of this schedule. •An Awarding Authority must request an updated wage schedule from the Department of Labor Standards (“DLS”) if it has not opened bids or selected a contractor within 90 days of the date of issuance of the wage schedule. For CM AT RISK projects (bid pursuant to G.L. c.149A), the earlier of: (a) the execution date of the GMP Amendment, or (b) the bid for the first construction scope of work must be within 90-days of the wage schedule issuance date. •The wage schedule shall be incorporated in any advertisement or call for bids for the project as required by M.G.L. c. 149, § 27. The wage schedule shall be made a part of the contract awarded for the project. The wage schedule must be posted in a conspicuous place at the work site for the life of the project in accordance with M.G.L. c. 149 § 27. The wages listed on the wage schedule must be paid to employees performing construction work on the project whether they are employed by the prime contractor, a filed sub-bidder, or any sub-contractor. •All apprentices working on the project are required to be registered with the Massachusetts Department of Labor Standards, Division of Apprentice Standards (DLS/DAS). Apprentice must keep his/her apprentice identification card on his/her person during all work hours on the project. An apprentice registered with DAS may be paid the lower apprentice wage rate at the applicable step as provided on the prevailing wage schedule. Any apprentice not registered with DLS/DAS regardless of whether or not they are registered with any other federal , state, local, or private agency must be paid the journeyworker's rate for the trade. •The wage rates will remain in effect for the duration of the project, except in the case of multi-year public construction projects. For construction projects lasting longer than one year, awarding authorities must request an updated wage schedule. Awarding authorities are required to request these updates no later than two weeks before the anniversary of the date the contract was executed by the awarding authority and the general contractor. For multi-year CM AT RISK projects, awarding authority must request an annual update no later than two weeks before the anniversary date, determined as the earlier of: (a) the execution date of the GMP Amendment, or (b) the execution date of the first amendment to permit procurement of construction services. Contractors are required to obtain the wage schedules from awarding authorities, and to pay no less than these rates to covered workers. The annual update requirement is not applicable to 27F “rental of equipment” contracts. •Every contractor or subcontractor which performs construction work on the project is required to submit weekly payroll reports and a Statement of Compliance directly to the awarding authority by mail or email and keep them on file for three years. Each weekly payroll report must contain: the employee’s name, address, occupational classification, hours worked, and wages paid. Do not submit weekly payroll reports to DLS. A sample of a payroll reporting form may be obtained at http://www.mass.gov/dols/pw. •Contractors with questions about the wage rates or classifications included on the wage schedule have an affirmative obligation to inquire with DLS at (617) 626-6953. •Employees not receiving the prevailing wage rate set forth on the wage schedule may report the violation to the Fair Labor Division of the office of the Attorney General at (617) 727-3465. •Failure of a contractor or subcontractor to pay the prevailing wage rates listed on the wage schedule to all employees who perform construction work on the project is a violation of the law and subjects the contractor or subcontractor to civil and criminal penalties.

The area shall be effectively screened with suitable planting or site impervious fencing on each side which adjoins or faces the side or rear lot line of a lot situated in any Residential R District. B. The area and access driveways thereto shall be surfaced with bituminous concrete, cement concrete or pervious pavement (not to include any form of gravel or equivalent). The location of spaces shall be suitably marked by painted lines or other appropriate markings. C. A substantial bumper of masonry, steel, or heavy timber, or a concrete curb or berm curb which is backed, shall be placed at the edge of surfaced areas except driveways in order to protect abutting structures, properties and sidewalks and screening materials. D. There shall not be any business operation for vehicle repair for profit or gasoline or oil service facilities or any repair made to any motor vehicles, except on a lot occupied by a permitted automotive use. Any gasoline or oil facilities shall be at least 25 feet from any lot line. E. There shall not be any storage of materials or equipment or display of merchandise within parking areas except as part of approved building operations. F. In surface parking lots with more than 75 parking spaces, the expanse of pavement shall be interrupted by separating rows of parking spaces from each other and from driveways by using planting strips which may also contain pedestrian sidewalks at least six feet in width. Provision of these planting strips shall take into account the need to store snow, to locate light poles, to allow safe pedestrian movement, to maximize emergency access, and to separate different traffic movements. In addition, if an existing parking lot is expanded to over 75 spaces, planting strips shall be required for the entire lot. All proposals to construct or modify such parking lots shall be reviewed by the Planning Board in light of the requirements of this section. The Planning Board may waive planting strips if it deems appropriate only for the portion and number of parking spaces that are covered by one or more photovoltaic canopies. G. Fire lanes or emergency access points required for buildings or other structures shall be protected from unauthorized parking through the provision of curbs, mountable barriers, landscaped areas or such other improvements subject to the approval of the Fire Chief and Chief of Police, which in turn meets the objective of precluding parking in the restricted area. H. Surface parking lots with over 15 parking spaces serving uses located in Business, Industrial or Planned Village Districts must have at least one shade tree (minimum two-inch caliper) for every 15 provided parking spaces. The number of trees per 15 parking spaces shall be tabulated for all spaces unless the Planning Board finds that, for the spaces covered by photovoltaic canopies, there is no adequate location on site to meet the requirement for those covered spaces. CITY OF NORTHAMPTON PERMIT DECISION pg. 3 CONDITIONS Prior to Site Work 1. At least 15 days prior to site work final plans with relevant conditions herein shall be submitted for review.

Commonwealth of Massachusetts Highway Department “Standard Specifications for Highways and Bridges,” 1988 Edition as amended 1.3 DEFINITIONS A. Excavation - Any man-made cut, cavity, trench, or depression in an earth surface, formed by earth removal. B. Registered Professional Engineer - A person who is registered as a professional engineer in the state where the work is to be performed. However, a professional engineer, registered in any state is deemed to be a "registered professional engineer" within the meaning of this standard when approving designs for "manufactured protective systems" or "tabulated data" to be used in interstate commerce. C. Trench - A narrow excavation (in relation to its length) made below the surface of the ground, of at least three feet in depth. In general, the depth is greater than the width, but the width of a trench (measured at the bottom) is not greater than 15 feet (4.6 m). Tighe&Bond N-0936-11/05/25/17 02315-2 Excavation, Backfill, Compaction, and Dewatering 1.4 SUBMITTALS A. Modified Proctor Test (ASTM D1557) results and soil classification (ASTM D2487) for all proposed backfill materials at the frequency specified below: 1. For suitable soil materials removed during Excavation, perform one test for every 1,000 cubic yards of similar soil type. Similarity of soil types will be as determined by the Engineer. 2. For borrow materials; perform tests at frequency specified in Section 02320, Borrow Materials. B. Compaction test results (i.e. ASTM D6938 or ASTM D1556) at a frequency of one test for every 100 cubic yards of material backfilled or at a minimum of one test per lift. The Engineer will determine the locations and lifts to be tested. The Contractor shall plan his operations to allow adequate time for laboratory tests and to permit taking of field density tests during compaction. 1. Methods and equipment proposed for compaction shall be subject to prior review by the Engineer. Compaction generally shall be done with vibrating equipment. Static rolling without vibration may be required by the Engineer on sensitive soils that become unstable under vibration. Displacement of, or damage to existing utilities or structure shall be avoided. Any utility or structure damaged thereby shall be replaced or repaired as directed by the Engineer. 2. Additional compaction testing may be required when there is evidence of a change in the quality of moisture control or the effectiveness of compaction. a. Any costs associated with correcting and retesting as a result of a failure to meet compaction requirements shall be borne by the Contractor. 3. If all compaction test results within the initial 25% of the total anticipated number of tests indicate compacted field densities equal to or greater than the project requirements, the Engineer may reduce frequency of compaction testing. In no case will the frequency be reduced to less than one test for every 500 cubic yards of material backfilled. 4. The Contractor is cautioned that compaction testing by nuclear methods may not be effective where trenches are so narrow that trench walls impact the attenuation of the gamma radiation, when adjacent to concrete that impacts the accuracy of determining moisture content, or where oversize particles (i.e. large cobbles or coarse gravels) are present. In these cases, other field density testing methods may be required. 1.5 QUALITY ASSURANCE A. All Excavation, Trenching, and related Earth Retention Systems shall comply with the requirements of OSHA excavation safety standards (29 CFR Part 1926 Subpart P), 520 CMR 14.00, and other State and local requirements. Where conflict between OSHA and State regulations exists, the more stringent requirements shall apply. Tighe&Bond N-0936-11/05/25/17 02315-3 Excavation, Backfill, Compaction, and Dewatering 1.6 PROJECT CONDITIONS A. Notify Dig Safe and obtain Dig Safe identification numbers. B.

D. In accordance with 520 CMR 14.00, no person shall, except in an emergency, make an excavation in any public way, public property, or privately owned land until a permit is obtained from the appropriate designated permitting authority. For this project, the permit should be obtained from The City of Northampton. PART 2 PRODUCTS 2.1 SOIL MATERIALS A. Fill material is subject to the approval of the Engineer and may be either material removed from excavations or borrow from off site. Fill material, whether from the excavations or from borrow, shall be of such nature that after it has been placed and properly compacted, it will make a dense, stable fill. B. Satisfactory fill materials shall include materials classified by ASTM D 2487 as GW, GP, GM, GP-GM, GW-GM, GC, GP-GC, SW, and SP. Additional requirements are included in Section 02320. C. Satisfactory fill materials shall not contain trash, refuse, vegetation, masses of roots, individual roots more than 18 inches long or more than 1/2 inch in diameter, or stones over 6 inches in diameter. Unless otherwise stated in the Contract Documents, organic matter shall not exceed minor quantities and shall be well distributed. D. Satisfactory fill materials shall not contain frozen materials nor shall backfill be placed on frozen material. E. Excavated surface and/or pavement materials such as gravel or trap rock that are salvaged may be used as a sub-grade material, if processed to the required gradation and compacted to the required degree of compaction. In no case shall salvaged materials be substituted for the required gravel base. 2.2 CONTROLLED DENSITY FILL A. Controlled density fill shall be flowable, excavatable and shall require no vibration for placement. Compressive strength at 28 days shall be 30 to 80 psi and the slump shall be 10 to 12 inches. PART 3 EXECUTION 3.1 PREPARATION A. Public Safety and Convenience 1. Adhere to the requirements of 520 CMR 14.00 for all excavation work. Tighe&Bond N-0936-11/05/25/17 02315-4 Excavation, Backfill, Compaction, and Dewatering 2. Take precautions for preventing injuries to persons or damage to property in or about the Work. 3. Provide safe access for the Owner and Engineer at site during construction. 4. Do not obstruct site drainage, natural watercourses or other provisions made for drainage. 3.2 CONSTRUCTION A. Excavation 1. Perform excavation to the lines and grades indicated on the Drawings. Backfill unauthorized over-excavation in accordance with the provisions of this Section. 2. Excavate with equipment selected to minimize damage to existing utilities or other facilities. Hand excavate as necessary to locate utilities or avoid damage. 3. Sawcut the existing pavement in the vicinity of the excavation prior to the start of excavation in paved areas, so as to prevent damage to the paving outside the requirements of construction. 4. Perform excavation in such a manner as to prevent disturbance of the final subgrade. The Engineer or Owner may require the final six inches of excavation be performed by hand, with the use of a smooth-faced bucket, or other means acceptable to the Engineer or Owner, at no additional cost if subgrade disturbance is considered excessive as judged by the Engineer or Owner. 5. During excavation, material satisfactory for backfill shall be stockpiled in an orderly manner at a distance from the sides of the excavation equal to at least one half the depth of the excavation, but in no case closer than 2 feet. a. Excavated material not required or not suitable for backfill shall be removed from the site. b. Perform grading to prevent surface water from flowing into the excavation. c. Pile excavated material in a manner that will endanger neither the safety of personnel in the excavation nor the Work itself. Avoid obstructing sidewalks and driveways. d. Hydrants under pressure, valve pit covers, valve boxes, manholes, curb stop boxes, fire and police call boxes, or other utility controls shall be left unobstructed and accessible until the Work is completed. 6. Grade or create berms or swales to direct surface water from excavations to appropriate structures designed to accommodate storm water. If no structures exist, direct water to areas that minimize impacts to adjacent structures and properties. 7. Make pipe trenches as narrow as practicable and keep the sides of the trenches undisturbed until backfilling has been completed. Provide a clear distance of 18 inches on each side of the pipe. Tighe&Bond N-0936-11/05/25/17 02315-5 Excavation, Backfill, Compaction, and Dewatering 8. Perform the excavation in such a manner as to prevent disturbance of the final subgrade. If excessive subgrade disturbance is occurring, as judged by the Owner or Engineer, then the final 6 inches of the excavation shall be performed by hand, with the use of a smooth-faced bucket, or other means acceptable to the Engineer or Owner. a. Grade the excavation bottom to provide uniform bearing and support for the bottom quadrant of each section of pipe. b. Excavate bell holes at each joint to prevent point bearing. c. Remove stones greater than 6 inches in any dimension from the bottom of the trench to prevent point bearing. 9. If satisfactory materials are not encountered at the design subgrade level, excavate unsatisfactory materials to the depth directed by the Engineer and properly dispose of the material. Backfill the resulting extra depth of excavation with satisfactory fill materials and compact in accordance with the provisions of this Section. B. Backfill and Compaction 1. Unless otherwise specified or indicated on the Drawings, use satisfactory material removed during excavation for backfilling trenches. The Engineer may require stockpiling, drying, blending and reuse of materials from sources on the Project. 2. Spread and compact the material promptly after it has been deposited. When, in the Engineer’s judgment, equipment is inadequate to spread and compact the material properly, reduce the rate of placing of the fill or employ additional equipment. 3. Prior to backfilling or placement of structures, excavated subgrades shall be proof compacted with either 10 passes of a 10-ton vibratory drum roller for open excavations or 6 passes of a large, reversible, walk behind vibratory compactor capable of exerting a minimum force of 2,000 pounds in trench or pit excavations. Soft or weak spots shall be over-excavated and replaced with compacted Granular Fill or compacted Crushed Stone wrapped in a non-woven geotextile, as directed by the Owner or their representative. If proof compaction will prove detrimental to the subgrade due to the presence of groundwater, static rolling may be allowed at the discretion of the Engineer or Owner. 4. Soil bearing surfaces shall be protected against freezing and the elements before and after concrete placement. If construction is performed during freezing weather, structures shall be backfilled as soon as possible after they are constructed. Insulating blankets or other means shall be used for protection against freezing at the discretion of the Engineer or Owner. 5. When excavated material is specified for backfill and there is an insufficient amount of this material at a particular location on the Project due to rejection of a portion thereof, consideration will be given to the use of excess material from one portion of the Project to make up the deficiency existing on other portions of the Project. Tighe&Bond N-0936-11/05/25/17 02315-6 Excavation, Backfill, Compaction, and Dewatering a. Use borrow material if there is no excess of excavated material available at other portions of the Project. 6. Backfilling and compaction methods shall attain 95% of maximum dry density at optimum moisture content as determined in accordance with ASTM D1557. 7. Do not place stone or rock fragment larger than six inches in greatest dimension in the backfill. 8. Maximum loose lift height for backfilling existing or borrow material shall be 12 inches, unless satisfactory compaction is demonstrated otherwise to the Engineer through field-testing. In no case shall loose lift height for backfilling exceed 3 feet. 9. Do not drop large masses of backfill material into the trench endangering the pipe or adjacent utilities. 10. Install pipe in rock excavated trenches on a dense graded stone bedding with a minimum depth of 6 inches. Shape the stone bedding at the pipe bells to provide uniform support. Encase the pipe in the dense graded crushed stone bedding to a grade 6 inches over the top of the pipe and 12 inches on each side of the pipe. 11. Backfill from the bottom of the trench to the centerline of the pipe with the specified material. This initial backfill is to be placed in layers of no more than 6 inches and thoroughly tamped under and around the pipe. This initial backfilling shall be deposited in the trench for its full width on both sides of the pipe, fittings and appurtenances simultaneously. 12. Where excavation is made through permanent pavements, curbs, paved driveways, or paved sidewalks, or where such structures are undercut by the excavation, place the entire backfill to sub-grade with granular materials and compact in 6 inch layers. Use approved mechanical tampers for the full depth of the trench. If required, sprinkle the backfill material with water before tamping so as to improve compaction. Any trenches improperly backfilled, or where settlement occurs, shall be reopened to the depth required to correct the problem, and shall then be refilled and properly compacted with the surface restored to required grade at no additional expense. 13. The Contractor shall not place backfill against or on structures until they have attained sufficient strengths to support the loads to which they will be subjected, without distortion, cracking, or other damage. As soon as possible after the structures are adequate, they shall be backfilled with suitable backfill material. 14. Place and compact backfill around manholes, vaults, pumping stations, gate boxes or other structures in six inch layers, from a point one foot over the pipe. Exercise care to protect and prevent damage to the structures. 15. Install impervious trench dams where stone borrow is used for pipe bedding to prevent groundwater from following along the stone bedding. Install dams every 100 feet. C. Test Pit Excavation 1. Test pits, if necessary, shall be conducted in accordance with this specification. Tighe&Bond N-0936-11/05/25/17 02315-7 Excavation, Backfill, Compaction, and Dewatering 3.3 PROTECTION A. Protection of Existing Structures 1. All existing foundations, conduits, wall, pipes, wires, poles, fences, property line markers and other items which the Engineer decides must be preserved in place without being temporarily or permanently relocated, shall be carefully supported and protected from damage by the Contractor. Should such items be damaged, they shall be restored by the Contractor to at least as good condition as that in which they were found immediately before the Work began. B. Accommodation of Traffic 1. Streets and drives shall not be unnecessarily obstructed. The Contractor shall take such measures at his own expense to keep the street or road open and safe for two-way traffic unless otherwise indicated. 2. Construct and maintain such adequate and proper bridges over excavations as may be necessary or as directed for the safe accommodation of pedestrians and vehicles. Provide substantial barricades at crossings of trenches, or along the trench to protect the traveling public. 3. Where deemed necessary, such additional passageways as may be directed shall be maintained free of such obstructions. All material piles, open excavations, equipment, and pipe which may serve as obstructions to traffic shall be protected by proper lights, signage, or guards as necessary. 4. All traffic controls shall be in accordance with the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices for Streets and Highways, latest edition. C. Erosion and Sedimentation Control 1. Take all necessary steps to prevent soil erosion. 2. Plan the sequence of construction so that only the smallest practical area of land is exposed at any one time during construction. 3. Temporary vegetation and/or mulching shall be used to protect critical areas exposed during construction as judged by the Engineer.

Section Includes 1. Testing of Storm Drainage Systems B. Related Sections 1. Section 02958 – Television Inspection of Pipelines PART 2 PRODUCTS – NOT USED PART 3 EXECUTION 3.1 TESTING OF STORM DRAINAGE SYSTEMS A. TV inspect storm drainage pipes included in the Work in accordance with Section 02958 to ensure that pipes are straight between structures, correctly sloped, clean of debris and sediment, and generally free flowing. Alignment shall meet the requirements of Paragraph 3.2.C of this Section. B. Visually inspect all storm drainage structures included in the Work to ensure that all structures are clean of debris and sediment, and have frames, covers, grates, inverts, sumps, and other required appurtenances. C. All flexible pipe types including polyvinyl chloride (PVC), high-density polyethylene (HDPE), or polypropylene (PP) shall be tested for deflection in accordance with Paragraph 3.2.C of this Section at least forty five (45) days after it has been backfilled. 3.2 TESTING OF GRAVITY SEWER SYSTEMS A. Test all gravity sewers for allowable leakage by low pressure air test or by an infiltration/exfiltration water test as described herein. B. Vacuum Test for Manholes - Gravity Sewer Lines 1. After a manhole has been constructed, conduct a manhole acceptance test using the following vacuum test procedure: a. Plug all lift holes with an approved non-shrink grout. b. Plug all pipes entering the manhole, taking care to securely brace the plug from being drawn into the manhole. c. Place the test head at the inside of the top of the precast concrete cone section and inflate the seal in accordance with the manufacturers' recommendations. d. Draw a vacuum of 10 inches of mercury and shut off the vacuum pump. With the valves closed, measure the time for the vacuum to drop to 9 inches. The manhole shall pass if the time is greater than: Tighe&Bond N0936-11/04/06/21 02503-2 Testing of Sanitary Sewer and Storm Drainage Systems 1 min. 0 sec. for 0-ft. to 10-ft. deep manholes 1 min. 15 sec. for 10-ft. to 15-ft. deep manholes 1 min. 30 sec. for 15-ft. to 25-ft. deep manholes e. If the manhole fails the initial test, make repairs with a non-shrink grout. Re-test until a satisfactory test is obtained. C. Allowable Deflection Test for flexible pipe types including polyvinyl chloride (PVC), high-density polyethylene (HDPE), or polypropylene (PP) 1. Pipe deflection measured not less than 45 days after the backfill has been completed shall not exceed 5 percent. Deflection shall be computed by multiplying the amount of deflection (average outside diameter less twice the average wall thickness diameter when measured) by 100 and dividing by the nominal diameter of the pipe. 2. Deflection shall be measured with a rigid mandrel (Go-No-Go) device cylindrical in shape and constructed with a minimum of nine or ten evenly spaced arms or prongs. Submit drawings of the mandrel with complete dimensions for each diameter of pipe to be tested. Hand-pull the mandrel through all sewer and drain lines. 3. Uncover any section of pipe not passing the mandrel and replace the bedding and backfill to prevent excessive deflection. Replace sections of the pipe as necessary. Retest repaired pipe immediately upon backfilling of trench until acceptable. 4. Retest the repaired section of pipeline again, from manhole to manhole, after the 45-day backfill period, until acceptable. D. Test Failures 1. In case leakage or deflection exceeds the above specified amount, locate the failure and repair it in accordance with applicable Sections of this Contract. 2. Pipelines with shear-type breaks, “fishmouths” or damaged gaskets, cracked bells or couplings, hairline fractures, or structural damage shall be replaced. Mechanical sleeve couplings, poured concrete collars or similar repairs are not permitted. The use of pressure grouting repair techniques will not be allowed without the written consent of the Engineer. 3. After repairs have been made, re-test the line and repeat the process of repairing and re-testing until satisfactory test results, as specified in this Section, are obtained. E. Alignment of Gravity Sewers and Drains 1. Lay gravity sewers and drains accurately to line and grade. 2. After the pipe is laid and backfill complete, TV inspect the interior of the pipe from manhole to manhole. If excessive deviation in either the horizontal or vertical alignment is observed by the Engineer, the alignment is considered unacceptable. Tighe&Bond N0936-11/04/06/21 02503-3 Testing of Sanitary Sewer and Storm Drainage Systems 3. If the alignment is unacceptable due to horizontal displacement, the Contractor will be allowed to construct intermediate manholes at his own expense. If the alignment is unacceptable due to vertical displacement, remove and replace the pipe to the proper grade.

No shattering or splitting shall be evident when 150 ft.-lbs. and 210 ft.-lbs. is impacted on 4 inch and 6 inch diameter pipe, respectively, in accordance with ASTM Method of Test D2444. 5. Pipe lengths and fittings to be used on the project shall be clearly marked on the outside in bold type with the name of the manufacturer, pipe size, pipe material, pipe class, and ASTM designation. PART 3 EXECUTION 3.1 HANDLING PIPE AND FITTINGS A. Take care in loading, transporting, and unloading to prevent injury to the pipe. Do not drop pipe or fittings. Examine pipe and fittings before installing, and no piece shall be installed that is found to be defective. B. If any defective pipe is discovered after it has been installed, remove and replace it with a sound pipe in a satisfactory manner. Thoroughly clean pipe and fittings before installing, keep clean until they are used in the work, and conform to the lines, grades and dimensions required when installed. C. Pipe ends requiring cutting shall be cut square without damage to the remaining pipe. Bevel cut pipe ends 1/8 inch at approximately 30 degrees to provide proper assembly of the joint. Beveling can be done with a coarse file or portable grinder. D. Support stored pipe from below at not more than 3 foot intervals to prevent deformation. Do not stack pipe higher than 6 feet. Store pipe and fittings in a manner which will keep them at ambient outdoor temperatures. Provide temporary shading as required to meet this requirement. Simply covering of the pipe and fittings which allows temperature buildup when exposed to direct sunlight will not be permitted. 3.2 INSTALLATION A. No single piece of pipe shall be laid unless it is generally straight. The centerline of the pipe shall not deviate from a straight line drawn between the centers of the openings at the ends of the pipe by more than 1/16 inch per foot of length. If a piece of pipe fails to meet this required check for straightness, it shall be rejected and removed from the site. Laying instructions of the manufacturer shall be explicitly followed. Tighe&Bond N0936-11/04/23/21 02515-3 Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) Pipe and Fittings B. Install piping and fittings true to alignment and grade. If necessary, each length of pipe shall be cleaned out before installation. C. Excavation, trenching and back filling procedures shall be in accordance with Section 02315. D. All PVC gravity pipe shall be installed on a bed of 3/4-inch crushed stone borrow meeting the requirements of Section 02320 and have a minimum depth of 6 inches. The 3/4-inch crushed stone borrow shall also completely encase the pipe and cover the pipe to a grade 6 inches over the top of the pipe for the entire width of the trench. Bell holes shall be made in the 3/4-inch crushed stone borrow bedding such that the pipe shall be uniformly supported throughout the entire length of the barrel section. E. All pipe shall be tested in accordance with Section 02503. F. All PVC force main pipe shall be installed with proper bedding using compacted native materials which provide uniform longitudinal support under the pipe. When an unstable subgrade material is encountered which will provide inadequate pipe support, additional trench depth should be excavated and refilled with suitable material. Initial backfill material should be placed to a minimum one foot over the top of the pipe. Pipe backfill material should be selected and placed carefully, avoiding stones, frozen lumps, and debris. G. Deflections in Pipe Alignment 1. Wherever it is necessary to deflect pipe from a straight line, either in the vertical or horizontal plane, to avoid obstructions or where long-radius curves are permitted, the amount of deflection allowed shall not exceed that required for satisfactory making of the joint, and shall be approved by the Engineer. 2. Prior to deflecting the pipeline, the spigot of the pipeline should be marked flush with the bell end to assure that the spigot is not withdrawn excessively as the result of the deflection. After the pipe is deflected, an adequate depth of jointing material must remain on the side where the spigot is away from home and an adequate width of caulking space must remain on the opposite side of the pipe at the face of the bell. 3. The maximum deflection recommended by the manufacturer when using any pipe system must be observed when deflecting a pipeline. 4. In general, all radius curves called for on the Drawings or permitted at the time of construction are to be made using full lengths of pipe. The use of short lengths of pipe and extra joints in order to make a smaller radius turn will not be allowed without the written approval of Engineer. H. Unsuitable Laying Conditions 1. No pipe shall be laid in water, in an unsuitable trench or during unsuitable weather conditions.

(see chart in ACI 305R) special precautions shall be taken against the formation of plastic shrinkage cracking on the surface of the concrete after placement. E. During any period when for more than three successive days the average daily outdoor temperature drops below 40F, the concrete temperature at the time of placement shall be as specified in Table C below. Tighe&Bond N0936-11/04/24/20 03300-10 Cast-in-Place Concrete TABLE C Concrete Temperature During Cold Weather Least dimension of section, inches. Minimum temperature of concrete as placed and maintained during the protection period, F Maximum gradual decrease in surface temperature during any 24 hours after end of protection, F Less than 12 55 50 12 to less than 36 50 40 36 to 72 45 30 Greater than 72 40 20 F. Central mixed concrete shall be plant mixed a minimum of five minutes. Agitation shall begin immediately after premixed concrete is placed in truck and shall continue without interruption until discharged. Transit mixed concrete shall be mixed at mixing speed for at least ten minutes immediately after charging truck followed by agitation without interruption until discharged. G. Retempering of concrete which has partially hardened by mixing with or without additional cement, aggregates, or water shall not be permitted. 3.4 PLACING CONCRETE A. Remove excess water and foreign matter from forms and excavations. Do not place concrete on frozen soil. Provide adequate protection against frost action during freezing weather. B. Transport concrete from mixer to place of final deposit as rapidly as practical by methods which prevent separation of ingredients and displacement of reinforcements, and which avoid re-handling. Do not deposit partially hardened concrete. When concrete is conveyed by chutes, equipment shall be of such size and shape to ensure continuous flow in chute. Flat (coal) chutes shall not be used. Chutes shall be of metal or metal lined and uniformly sloped. Slope shall not be less than 25 nor more than 45 from horizontal. Concrete shall be lowered and maintained as near to the surface of deposit as practicable. The chute shall be thoroughly cleaned before and after each use and debris and any water shall be discharged outside of the forms. Concrete shall not be allowed to flow horizontally over distances exceeding 10 feet or dropped vertically over 6 feet. C. Place concrete in such a manner as to prevent segregation and accumulations of hardened concrete on forms or reinforcement above the grade of concrete being placed. Suitable hoppers and spouts with restricted outlets and tremies shall be used as required. D. Thoroughly consolidate each layer of concrete by rodding and vibrating using internal type mechanical vibrator. Vibration shall be done by experienced operators under close supervision and shall be carried on only enough to produce homogeneity and optimum consolidation without permitting segregation of constituents or "pumping" of air. Vibrators used for normal weight concrete shall operate at speeds of not less than 7,000 vpm and be of suitable capacity. Do not use vibrators to move concrete. Vibration shall Tighe&Bond N0936-11/04/24/20 03300-11 Cast-in-Place Concrete be supplemented by spading to remove bubbles and honeycombs adjacent to visible surfaces. At least one vibrator shall be on hand for every 10 cubic yards of concrete placed per hour, plus one spare. Vibrators shall be operable and on site prior to starting concrete placement. E. Deposit concrete continuously, and in layers of such thickness that no concrete will be deposited on concrete which has hardened sufficiently to cause formation of seams and planes of weakness within the section. If a section cannot be placed continuously between planned construction joints, as specified, field joints and additional reinforcement shall be introduced at the Contractor's expense to preserve structural continuity. F. Cold joints, particularly in exposed concrete, including "honeycombs", are unacceptable. If they occur in concrete surfaces exposed to view, the Engineer will require that entire section in which blemish occurs be removed and replaced with new materials at the Contractor's expense. 3.5 CURING AND PROTECTION A. When concrete is placed at or below an ambient air temperature of 40F. or whenever this temperature or lower values are likely to occur within 48 hours after placement of concrete, cold weather concreting procedures, according to ACI 306.1 and as specified herein, shall be followed. The entire area affected shall be protected by adequate housing or covering, and heating. No salt, chemicals or other foreign materials shall be used in the mix to lower the freezing point of concrete. No oil or kerosene heaters shall be utilized. Vent flue gases from combustion heating units to the outside of the enclosure. B.

Concrete shall be treated and protected immediately after concreting or cement finishing is completed, to provide continuous moist curing above 50F. for at least 7 days, regardless of ambient air temperatures. E. All concrete shall be cured immediately after finishing in accordance with the following requirements: 1. Curing shall be accomplished by a continuous soaking process such as the use of soaker hose or sprinklers, or by use of plastic roll materials to cover the concrete, which shall be thoroughly wetted at least once a day or more often as required in very hot weather. Such plastic shall be placed as soon as possible after finishing of concrete so that scarring of the surface will not occur. Plastic shall be held in place on the surface of the concrete in such a manner and means as will not allow it to be blown off or otherwise dislodged from the concrete surface. Curing procedures shall be maintained continuously for a period of at least 7 days. 2. All methods of curing shall be subject to approval of the Engineer, and each method employed shall be practical and adequate for the curing required. Curing compounds in lieu of wet curing will not be allowed. F. Keep permanent temperature records showing date and outside temperature during concreting operations. Thermometer readings shall be taken at start of work in morning, Tighe&Bond N0936-11/04/24/20 03300-12 Cast-in-Place Concrete at noon, and again late in afternoon. Locations of concrete placed during such periods shall likewise be recorded in such manner as to show any effect temperatures may have had on construction. 3.6 REMOVAL OF FORMWORK A. Forms shall not be removed until concrete has attained sufficient strength to support its own weight, construction loads to be placed thereon and lateral loads, without damage to structure or excessive deflection. B. With the exception of construction joint bulkheads and keyways, forms and supports shall remain in place for not less than the minimum time periods noted below. 1. Unless specifically authorized by the Engineer, forms for vertical surfaces shall not be removed before the concrete has attained a strength of not less than 30 percent of the minimum allowable prescribed compressive strength nor not less than the minimum time period specified in Table D. 2. Unless specifically authorized by the Engineer, forms for horizontal surfaces shall not be removed before the concrete has attained a strength of not less than 60 percent of the minimum allowable prescribed compressive strength nor not less than the minimum time period specified in Table D. TABLE D Minimum Degree Day Requirement for Form Removal Form Use Degree-Days Walls and Vertical Surfaces 200 Elevated Slabs 400 Beams and Girders 600 3. Definition of degree-days - Total number of days times mean daily air temperature at the surface of the concrete. For example, 5 days at temperature of 60F. equals 300 degree-days. Days or fractions of days in which temperature is below 50F. shall not be included in calculation of degree-days except where modified by Table C above. C. Forms for construction joint bulkheads and keyways may be removed the following day, after the concrete pour. Extreme caution must be used to avoid damage to the concrete surface and keyway. D. Any test cylinders required to verify the specified minimum strengths for form removal shall be field cured under the same conditions as the concrete they represent. Such cylinders and testing shall be at the Contractor's expense. 3.7 FINISHING OF CAST-IN-PLACE CONCRETE A. Slab Surfaces 1. Interior traffic bearing surfaces shall have a steel trowel finish and exterior slabs shall have a wood or magnesium trowel non-slip finish. The finish shall be accomplished by a procedure as follows, but shall be the Contractor's responsibility to produce a good and proper finish on all parts of the work: Tighe&Bond N0936-11/04/24/20 03300-13 Cast-in-Place Concrete a. "Steel Trowel Finish" - The surface shall be screeded and given a minimum of two trowelings using a steel trowel. The final troweling shall be done at a time when the concrete has set to a point where troweling produces a ringing sound as the trowel is drawn across the surface. Where surface areas are large enough to permit their use, power finishing machines will be used. For all steel trowel finishes, a fine textured dense surface shall be the final result. Premature finishing will require additional troweling to obtain the final result. b. "Wood Float Finish" - The surface shall be screeded, given a minimum of one steel troweling and shall then be finished with a wood, cork or other float as required to produce the desired finish. In cases where a rough wood float finish is sufficient, the above procedure may be executed, omitting the steel troweling. A wood float finish shall be used only when allowed in writing by the Engineer. c. "Broom Finish" - On exterior work such as sidewalks and where else called for, a broom finish shall be used. The finishing shall be accom- plished in the following manner. Screeding shall be done and the surface worked up with a wood float. At a proper time thereafter, the surface shall be steel troweled at least once and more if so directed. Upon completion of troweling, a sufficiently stiff bristled broom shall be drawn lightly across the surface to produce a slightly striated finish. The brooming shall in general be perpendicular to the main traffic route. Coordinate required finish with the Engineer before application. 2. For all of the finishing procedures described, the time element is important and something that must be determined during the progress of the work as conditions warrant. Normally, free water on the surface of concrete should not occur. Allow the concrete surface to dry before starting finishing operations. Do not, under any circumstance, add dry cement to wet areas in order to accelerate drying. Finishing and rubbing required for all parts of the work shall be done only by competent "Cement Finishers" trained for the work. B. Formed Surfaces 1. Immediately after the end of the wet cure period, remove form ties and patch all tie-holes, rat holes, and other surface voids with a non-metallic, non-shrink grout, which most nearly matches the color and texture of the concrete surface. All protrusions shall be ground smooth with an approved mechanical grinder. 3.8 REPAIRING OF HARDENED CONCRETE SURFACES A. Defective concrete and honeycombed areas shall not be patched unless examined and approval is given by the Engineer. After approval, areas involved shall be cut back to a minimum depth of 1 inch from the finished surface, or as otherwise directed, whichever is greater. Edges of areas to be repaired shall be cut square to a minimum depth of 3/4 inch. Feathered edges will not be allowed. Any voids or honeycomb around reinforcing steel shall be chipped away to provide at least 3/4 inch clearance all around to permit proper placement of repair concrete around the steel to the parent, sound concrete. B. Exposed surfaces shall be thoroughly cleaned of all mud, paint, grime, scum, laitance, organic matter, detritus, calcareous growth and other foreign matter by sand and water blasting or other acceptable means. Immediately after cleaning, the surface shall be Tighe&Bond N0936-11/04/24/20 03300-14 Cast-in-Place Concrete checked by the Engineer for proper surface preparation, including fractured concrete or loose aggregate. Any such material shall be removed using pneumatic or hand tools. The final surfaces shall be thoroughly rinsed with clean water to remove remaining dirt and dust. C. Premoisten the prepared surface for at least 2 hours to reduce the absorption of water by the parent concrete and to provide a reservoir for moist curing at the interface of the repair. The substrate should be saturated surface dry with no standing water. While the concrete surface is still damp, apply a thin 1/16 inch coat of neat cement slurry (mixed to the consistency of a heavy paste) with a bristle brush to provide a bond coat throughout the entire cavity of the repair. Before the slurry has dried or changed color, promptly install the repair concrete or dry-pack, as may be required or selected. D. For relatively small areas, ram repair concrete into this portion of the formed void. This concrete shall comprise a crumbly-dry 1-1-1.5 mixture of cement, concrete sand and pea gravel (or 3/4 inch gravel) mixed slightly damp to the touch (just short of "balling"). The "dry-pack" consistency of the concrete shall be zero slumps, but moist enough so that when it is rodded and tamped until dense, an excess of paste will appear on the surface in the form of a spider web. In cases of unformed voids of thinner section, do not build-up repair in excess of a depth which will sag with the weight of the fresh mortar or concrete. Trowel smooth with heavy pressure. E. The concrete shall be of the driest possible consistency and mix composition so that it can be worked into the corners and angles of forms and around the reinforcement, without permitting the materials to segregate or free water to collect on the surface, due consideration being given to the methods of placing and compacting. Source and mixture of concrete shall be submitted for approval. F. Concrete shall be deposited continuously, or in layers of such thickness that no concrete will be deposited which has hardened sufficiently to cause the formation of seams and planes of weakness within the section. Concrete shall be thoroughly consolidated and trowelled dense, smooth and plane. Avoid premature and excessive trowelling which could cause sagging. G. Repair areas and adjacent parent concrete surfaces shall be continuously moist cured immediately after finishing for at least 7 days. Surfaces shall be covered with damp burlap and sealed with taped polyethylene. Membrane curing compounds shall not be used. H. Leave finished work and adjacent concrete surfaces in a neat, clean condition with no evidence of spillovers or staining. 3.9 CLEANING A. Concrete surfaces shall be cleaned of objectionable stains as determined by the Engineer. Materials containing acid in any form or methods which will damage the "skin" of concrete surfaces shall not be employed, except where otherwise specified.
