Submittals and Architect Responsibility

Submittals are NOT contract documents, but are only to demonstrate the way that the contractor proposes to conform with the design concept in the contract documents. Pursuant to AIA A201 2007: 3.12.4 Shop Drawings, Product Data, Samples and similar submittals are not Contract Documents. Their purpose is to demonstrate the way by which the Contractor proposes to conform to the information given and the design concept expressed in the Contract Documents for those portions of the Work for which the Contract Documents require submittals. Review by the Architect is subject to the limitations of Section 4.2. 7. Informational submittals upon which the Architect is not expected to take responsive action may be so identified in the Contract Documents. Submittals that are not required by the Contract Documents may be returned by the Architect without action.

Prosecutors did not know the truth

The prosecutor who dismissed Skånevik case never got to know that the Labour Inspectorate allowed divers to operate without reserve air. A young American died during a record dive. Now requires more that the case is resumed.

It tore at every stage. I wondered if I would survive

He screamed with pain. The German doctor just stood and watched and smoked cigar, says Egil Eid. In 1972, planned and approved Arbeidstilsynet an attempt dives that could have ended fatally for him and Per Ludvigsen.
