It shall include additional specifications prepared before or during the construction for the modification or addition for any specific parts of the Works.

- "Provided" and its derivatives means the complete design, manufacture, delivery, installation, testing and commissioning of the works, inclusive of such ancillary services as inspection and witnessed testing at the places of manufacture, workshop and site painting, handling on site, site trials and of all such other services as are noted in the Specification or reasonably necessary for the safe, reliable and efficient completion of the Contract.

- "Earth excavation" is defined as excavation of any naturally occurring or man made or placed material that can be removed manually or by mechanical shovel, bulldozer or ripper.

- "Rock excavation" is defined as excavation of any naturally occurring or man made or placed material that cannot be removed by other means than by systematic blasting or by barring or by wedging or by the use of pneumatic tools or impact breakers.

- "Topsoil" is defined as any layer of soil adjacent to the existing surface which contains or is discoloured by roots or other organic matter which in the opinion of the Engineer will adversely affect part of the Works superimposed thereupon.

1.2 Sequence of Documents

The drawing and specifications shall be taken as being mutually explanatory of one another. However, in cases of ambiguity, discrepancy or conflict, the same shall be explained and resolved by the Engineer. In case of conflict between the drawings and General Specification, the drawings shall govern, for conflict between the drawings and Particular Specification, the Particular Specification shall govern, and for conflict between the General Specification and Particular Specification, the Particular Specification shall govern.

is given in the Particular Specification.

Benchmarks and reference points will be provided by the Engineer on or near the Site in a sufficient number to enable in the opinion of the Engineer the setting out of the Works by the Contractor. The Contractor shall check the position and levels of the benchmarks and the coordinates of the reference points, and then shall be fully responsible for maintaining the same intact and accurate. Where it is necessary to move a benchmark or reference point because of the Works, the Contractor shall re- place the benchmark or reference point to the approval of the Engineer.

The Contractor shall preserve all benchmarks and reference points and shall keep full written records of all amendments, corrections, and replacements of benchmarks and reference points available for inspection by the Engineer.

The Engineer will then join the Contractor for a joint survey. If these measurements are not taken jointly and recorded before the work will be executed, the Contractor's measurement will not be recognized by the Engineer.

The fact that such joint measurements have been made will in no way bind the Engineer to recognise the claim. The Engineer shall at all times have access to the Contractor's diary and may daily check the progress of relevant works, but this shall in no way bind the Engineer to accept the claim nor the value of the work other than by joint measurement.

1.13 Documentation to be Provided

During the course of the Contract the Contractor shall furnish three copies of each of the following contract records to the Engineer.
