View Full Version : Standards for % of Coverage

08-01-2006, 11:24 AM
Is anyone aware of any industry standards that involve determining the percentage of coverage or growth over a seeded area.

I am doing subcontract work for another contractor who is faced with a contractual clause that states:

"A request for inspection to determine Substantial Completion will not be considered until a vigorous uniform growth over at least 90% of the seeded area is present"

At this point it appears to be very subjective and one sided. We anticipate the need to challenge a forthcoming descision and would like to take the subjectivity out of the equation.

The seeded areas in question are athletic fields.
