Introduction

Page 8

Mean hourly wind speed of not less than .........30 m/s (as per BS EN 1991-1-4)
Yearly rainfall.......................................................80 - 150 mm
The wind is very directional and that the W-NNW sector predominates for velocities greater
than 8m/s (30km/h). However, the wind in coastal areas tends to exhibit a diurnal pattern,
with onshore winds during daylight hours changing to offshore at night.

The temperature is relatively mild from October to May and hot from June to September.

The relative ambient humidity is generally low from October to May and generally high from
June to September.

Under certain climatic conditions, considerable condensation may take place.

A considerable amount of salt is contained in the atmosphere which together with the
relatively high ambient humidity, can produce sever corrosion problems.

Distribution and occurrence of rainfall events are very erratic. Rainfall events are generally of
a high intensity with a short duration and usually occur between December and March.

The prevailing wind directions are from the north and west.

PERFORMANCE

8.12.1

General

Should the Contractor not maintain acceptable quality performance then the Owner or
Engineer may, in addition to any other amounts withheld under the Contract, withhold sum of
money from the Contractor equivalent to the work which has not met the required standards.
The criteria used for determining acceptable performance are as defined the Contract and
the Engineers decision shall be final. The following items shall be taken into consideration
when assessing non-acceptable performance;
(a)
(b)
(c)
(d)

any stop work instructions issued to the Contractor


any NCR issued to the Contractor
any adverse comments arising from quality inspections or quality audits
any adverse formal communication from the Owner or enforcing authorities or
government organisations to the Contractor regarding sub-standard quality
performance

8.12.2

Penalty for Poor Quality Works

Further to Clause 8.12.1, should the Contractor not maintain acceptable quality performance
then the Owner or Engineer may impose penalties on the Contractor. A general set of
unacceptable performance criteria that may be imposed by the Owner or Engineer for poor
quality work are defined in the Table 8.2. The financial penalties for poor quality work shall
be defined within the Contract.

characteristic as the common bitumen and/or asphalt [All types of Base Course (BC),
Intermediate Course (IC), Service Course (SC), Wearing Course etc, Bitumen Binder of all
types]. Hence all tests mentioned regarding bitumen and/or asphalt shall be carried out for
any material with the similar characteristics as bitumen and/or asphalt at the specified
frequency.

Footnote 29: Bitumen testing will have to be carried out by the Contractor at the specified
frequency, irrespective of the fact whether the same tests have been carried out by the
bitumen manufacturer or supplier.

Footnote 32: 1 test (or 1 sample) refers to a pair of adjacent cores (150 mm diameter for
intermediate and base course and 100 mm diameter for wearing course). If asphalt is layed
in two or more layers for any of the course, the coring and testing shall be completed for the
first layer before the commencement of asphalt laying for the subsequent layer(s).

Before a mobile crane is positioned for a lift, attention will be paid to the condition of the ground
upon which the crane will stand, as this will be subjected to high point-loadings from outriggers
or tyres. Dependent upon the nature of the ground and/or the size of the crane to be used, a
special hard standing may have to be prepared.

The maximum safe working wind speeds for all construction activity and in particular lifting
operations and Working at height activity is 25 Knots. The construction will monitor the
weather conditions and suspend work when wind speeds in excess of the maximum safe
working speeds are anticipated.

Outriggers will be properly set and locked if a locking device is provided. When controlled
remotely from the cab, the operator will make a physical check to ensure that each pad has an
adequate bearing before a load is lifted. Sound timber packing or metal plates will be used under
each outrigger pad to distribute the load. It is essential that outriggers are supported at the
jacking points and not under the outrigger beams. Also, lifting location to be barrier off.
