How do other companies handle this problem that I?ve come across a couple of times? The customer provides you with a drawing package and you bid upon exactly what the plans and written specs call for. Then you go to pull the permit and you?re told that the materials an/or design don?t meet code. I had a recent experience where an access road?s culvert pipe was specified undersized and did not meet county requirements. Needless to say, I ordered everything right after the NTP so that we could meet their deadline. When the problem arose, I contacted the CM and he told me that I should have known that because I?m the GC and I should know what local requirements are and he wanted me to eat the difference for the larger corrugated metal pipe. I went over his head, and was able to get a change order, but I?m afraid I may have burned a bridge.
