Contractors are required to inspect the site of the work in order to satisfy themselves, by personal examination or by such other means as they may prefer, of the location of the proposed work and as to the actual conditions of and at the site of work. If, during the course of the examination, contractor finds facts or conditions which appear confusing to contractor, contractor shall apply to County for additional information and explanation before submitted the bid. However, no such supplemental information so requested or furnished shall vary the terms of the specifications of the Contractor’s sole responsibility to satisfy himself or herself as to the conditions of the work to be performed.

The submission of a bid by the contractor shall constitute the acknowledgment that, if awarded the contract, contractor has relied and is relying on contractor’s examination of (a) the site of the work, (b) the access to the site, and (c) all other data, matters, and things requisite to the fulfillment of the work and on contractor’s own knowledge of existing conditions on and in the vicinity of the site of the site of the work to be constructed under contract, and not on any representation or warranty of County. No claim for additional compensation will be allowed which is based upon a lack of knowledge of the above items.

Before submitting a bid, each contractor will, at contractor’s own expense, make or obtain any additional examinations, investigations, explorations, tests and studies and obtain any additional information and data which pertain to the physical conditions (surface, subsurface and underground facilities) at or contiguous to the site or otherwise which may affect cost, progress, performance or furnishing of the work and which contractor deems necessary to determine its bid for performing and furnishing the work in accordance with the time, price and other terms and conditions of the contract documents.
