Like the measurement version of the Infrastructure 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 situration 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.
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 document maintains the concepts set down in the ICE Conditions of Contract Ground Investigation Version, first published in 1983 and updated in 2003.
