1. ALTERNATIVE AND SUBSTITUTE PRODUCTS


A. Definition: The term "product" shall mean any material including proprietary
goods, equipment and manufactured items.
B. The specifying of manufacturers or their products by name, trade name,
catalogue number, etc., shall not act to relieve the Contractor either from his
responsibility to meet other specification requirements, or from his
responsibility to make material submittals for approval.
C. Alternative products: References herein to "approved equal" or similar terms
shall mean that the approval of the Employer, Project Manager and the
Supervision Consultant is required to any alternative product proposed by the
Contractor. The Contractor's freedom, however, to propose alternatives for
the Project Manager and the Supervision Consultant review and approval,
shall not be limited to those products in respect of which the term "approved
equal" or similar has been used in the Contract Documents, and he may
propose alternatives to any specified products provided such alternatives are
equal in all respects to the cost, quality, durability and performance
characteristics of the specified product.
D. Substitute products: If the Contractor is unable to obtain the specified product
in spite of his best endeavors, and if he is unable to find and propose a
suitable equal alternative he may propose a substitute for the Employer,
Project Manager review and approval, which substitute shall be similar to, and
as near as possible equal if not better than the cost, quality, durability and
performance characteristics of the specified product. A substitute product will
only be considered if the Contractor has proved to the Project Manager
reasonable satisfaction that the specified product is unobtainable.
E. Approval of alternatives and substitutes: The approval of any alternative or
substitute product shall be solely at the discretion of the Employer and Project
Manager and such approval shall in no way relieve the Contractor of any of
his liabilities and obligations under the Contract. The burden of proof in
satisfying the Project Manager as to the suitability of any proposed alternative
or substitute product shall rest with the Contractor, and the Project Manager
may request and the Contractor shall provide such supporting data, carry out
such tests, etc., as the Project Manager may reasonably require in order to
satisfy himself as to such suitability. Any delays or extra costs suffered by the
Contractor because of his failure to propose alternatives timely so as to allow
the Project Manager reasonable time to review, or because of rejection of
alternatives or substitutes found by the Project Manager to be unsuitable,
shall be the responsibility of the Contractor and he shall not be entitled to
additional payment nor extra time for completion in this respect.
F. Cost effect in approving alternatives and substitutes: Should any alternative or
substitute product be approved by the Employer and Project Manager, any
net increase in cost over and above the specified product shall be borne by

the Contractor and, any net saving in cost shall be to the benefit of the
Employer.
G. Alternative or substitute products where permitted and approved, must
conform to the designed space requirements. Any such alternative or
substitute product that does not meet such space requirements, whether

expense.
H. Submission of details of alternatives and substitutes: With any alternative or
substitute proposal, submit copies of fully detailed comparison sheets
indicating all technical data, performance, etc, between the original specified
product and the alternative or substitute proposed together with fully detailed
specifications, brochures etc., and quotations for the Project Manager review
and approval in accordance with Section 01300.

way delay the Project programme or result in additional cost to the
Employer.
b) Proposals shall be subject to review and acceptance by the Employer,
Project Manager and the Supervision Consultant.

levels, dimensions or alignment of any part of the works, the Contractor,
on being required so to do by the Project Manager and Supervision
Consultant, shall at his own cost, rectify such error to the satisfaction of
the Project Manager and Supervision Consultant. The checking of any
setting-out or of any line or level by the Project Manager and Supervision
Consultant shall not in any way relieve the Contractor of his responsibility
for the correctness thereof and the contractor shall carefully protect and
preserve all bench-marks, sight rails, pegs and other things used in
