Can anyone please help clear up what to me looks a bit contradicting between the B101 and A201?
B101 section 5.7 says the owner pays for inspections and tests.
A201 section 13.5.1 says the contractor bears all related cost of inspections and tests. It then adds that the owner pays for tests that become requirements after bids or for tests that they aren’t allowed to pay for.
The only thing I can think of is that the B101 since it’s between the owner and the architect doesn’t mention the contractor in this case because the contractor isn’t a part of this contract. Still, I’m having a hard time not seeing the two as a contradiction.
Thanks for the help!
