Like the measurement version of the "ICE Condition of Contract", the "Ground Investigation Version" is based on the traditional pattern of an investigation designed by a Engineer and carried out by a Specialist Contractor. These Conditions are intended for the situation where the Employer wishes to develop a site and has geotechnical specialists to advise him and who will carry out any initial desk study, identify the geotechnical requirements of the project and design a ground investigation to suit those requirements. The Investigation may include all or some of the following: Site operations including drilling, digging pits, surveys etc; Ancillary Works, being permanent items left behind, e.g. piezometers; Laboratory Testing; and Reporting requirements. The extent of these will vary depending on the needs of individual projects and whether the purpose is for feasibility study of a full design investigation. This new edition maintains the concepts set down in the first edition, published in 1983, but puts them in a more modern context with some additions and amendments resulting from experience and modern practice. Changes since the first edition include: improved clarity of language, as for the family of ICE contractors; provision for a Ground Specialist to act as Engineer (Clause 2(2)); provisions regarding sub-contractors (Clause 4); requirements for supply of site information by the Employer (Clause 11); a procedure for dealing with unforeseen contamination (Clause 12A); a provision for repeating defective work (Clause 49(4)); a provision for dealing with Contractor proposed variations(Clauses 51(3) and 52(2)); and amended retention money clauses (Clause 60(5)and (6)).
