Section 1 General

Sections 1-1.06, “Abbreviations,” and 1-1.07, “Definitions,” of the Standard Specifications define terms and abbreviations used in specifications and the Bid Item List. Some sections of the Standard Specifications may include definitions that are specific to that section. The Standard Plans also contain a list of abbreviations and symbols that the engineer’s estimate uses for unit of measure.

Resident engineers and others preparing contract documents and correspondence must be familiar with the terms and symbols and use them correctly.
