Excavation Work such as Trenching, Digging and Back Filling
Underground construction involves risk of damage to existing underground infrastructure such as electrical conduits and wiring, Telephone cabling, gas and plumbing services, in addition to the possibility of encountering unexpected subsoil conditions including, but not limited to, rock, clay, aquifers, archaeological items, existing or abandoned construction elements and sink holes. Reasonable effort has been made to locate or predict said risk but no warranty is expressed or implied as to what will be discovered or encountered during construction. This Proposal is an estimate only and is based on similar projects where adverse conditions were not encountered. Any such adverse conditions which arise during excavation or construction will require additional work which will be billed at time and materials above and in addition to the amount shown on this proposal. By accepting this proposal, customer agrees to these potential additional charges which may include work by others to carry out rectification work when necessary in the opinion of the contractor. Soil will settle and will possibly need to be top dressed once this happens, this additional work has not been allowed for and additional costs will be incurred for this rectification work to be done.
Whilst the utmost care will be taken when digging and back filling trenches. No allowance has been made for repairs to damaged underground services as there is no way to tell where they are located. Back filling will always need tidying up by customer as the soil will never go back into the trench perfectly. Additional costs will be incurred by customer for any repairs to electrical services damaged whilst digging underground trenching. Plumbing and any other services that need to be repaired will need to be billed to council. Astra Electrical accepts no liability for damage to underground services.
