I've been reviewing for CE and looking at the example questions Ballast ARE 5 Review Manual has. and would like to get your thoughts on a couple of them, since I'm not sure why?
Example 50.3 - Which of the following is the contractor NOT solely responsible for?
- A) field reports to the owner
- B) selection of subcontractors
- C) scaffolding
- D) reviewing claims of subcontractors
Ballast says the answer is C.
However, i'm thinking why the contractor is NOT responsible for the scaffolding? isn't scaffolding is part of the means and methods of construction? does the 'solely' means something?
Example 51.1 - The punch list is created and maintained by the?
- A) Architect
- B) authority having jurisdiction
- C) Contractor
- D Owner
Ballast says the answer is A.
But from what I'm learning from Schiff Hardin Lectures/A201, it was the contractor who creates the punch list and they submit it along their request for substantial completion. Then the architect reviews it and add more if she/he sees more items.
