Per B101, section 5.5 and 5.9, the owner is required to furnace testing of the sub soil conditions, as well as any test inspections or reports required by law, such as the building code or by the contract documents, A201, section 13.4, also covers testing procedures and notes that the contractor shall bear the cost of testing required by the contract documents and by law. This means that if the architect forgets to include a test in their specs, but the test is required by law, the contractor must provide the test at no additional cost to the owner. The rationale behind this is that the contractor should also be familiar with testing requirements in the jurisdiction where the project is being built.
