SECTION 6.
SOILS, INVESTIGATIONS, FIELD SURVEYS, COLOR RENDERINGS, AND
INTERIOR DESIGN SERVICES
6.1  GENERAL:  Engineering studies and miscellaneous contracts cover a wide
range of engineering disciplines.  General requirements for these contracts
are usually the same as for Design.  Various NAVFAC design manuals,
military handbooks, EPA regulations, publications and instructions provide
guidance.  The specific publications, the scope of work, schedule of
submittals and other pertinent data not identified in this section, will be
contained in the "SCOPE."
6.1.1  Safeguarding Safety and Health.  During any field or site visit, the
A-E must comply with FAR 52.236-13, "Accident Prevention," and Alternate I,
OSHA requirements, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Safety and Health
Requirements, EM-385-1-1, take appropriate steps to safeguard the safety
and health of his staff and consultants, and the public and Government
personnel; and maintain a safe work environment, e.g. property, materials,
supplies, and equipment and, as necessary, provide safety barricades,
signs, and signal lights.  Especially when known hazardous substances exist
or are suspected to exist, e.g., PCB, asbestos, lead paint, etc., or entry
into confined spaces, under piers/wharfs or elevated areas 6 feet or more
above the ground, appropriate protective gear and equipment and proper
training shall be provided before any field investigation is attempted.
Submit the accident prevention plan prior to commencing work on Government
property.  In case of special or unusual conditions that may arise, the
Commanding Officer may order additional measures be taken as necessary.  If
an unsafe condition is found, the Contracting Officer may suspend or delay
all or part of the work until satisfactory corrective action has been
taken.  During demolition, renovation, and rehab of old buildings, workers
should be advised to take precautionary measures when cleaning up animal
excrements such as bat and bird droppings, which may be potential for
pathogens.

6.2  SOIL MECHANICS AND SITE SEISMICITY:  Provide comprehensive research,
investigation, and data collection on all surface and subsurface foundation
conditions relative to the project site, and the evaluation of such data
for the formulation of recommendations requisite for design.  Provide
investigation phases, if necessary, to support design progress.  In
addition, the soil investigation should provide reasonable and sufficient
basis for earthwork (site grading and/or utility trenching) performance and
cost estimates when earthwork is anticipated to be a major cost item.  The
information provided should clearly define, for the contract purpose as
minimum, the character of the materials to be encountered in the earthwork
performance.  This information may be provided later in the design stage in
a supplementary investigation when the site grading requirement and/or
