EJCDC® 2017 E-562, Labor and Materials Subcontract between Engineer and Engineer’s Subcontractor. EJCDC® E-562 is intended for use when a subcontractor provides labor and materials to an engineering firm (“Engineer”).
The previous edition of EJCDC® E-562 was titled Subcontract between Engineer and Engineer’s Subcontractor. The new and retitled 2017 edition of EJCDC® E-562 expands the application of the previous edition by emphasizing issues associated with delegating minor construction tasks.
Examples of work that might be performed under EJCDC® E-562 include:
- furnishing temporary field facilities for the Engineer’s use during a project;
- placement and maintenance of safety barriers to protect Engineer’s work during field studies;
- exploratory excavation;
- construction of monitoring facilities for Engineer’s use,
- and other limited labor and supply support for the Engineer.
EJCDC® E-562 Labor and Materials Subcontract between Engineer and Engineer’s Subcontractor is not intended for the delegation of professional services. EJCDC publishes standard sub-agreements to contract for services including EJCDC® E-570, Agreement between Engineer and Consultant for Professional Services.
