SPECIFICATION
Design Specification
The selection of equipment for the irrigation system will be undertaken during the design phase. To ensure longevity of service, only quality materials from known suppliers will be specified, where relevant complying with recognised standards. For 'active' components, ease of service and availability of spare parts or replacement units will also be evaluated. The principal areas for specification being:
        1. Water supply and storage.
        2. Pumping equipment.
        3. Pipework.
        4. Valves.
        5. Emitters.
        6. Control
Installation Specification
Having specified the equipment for the project, thorough specification of the installation procedures is essential to ensure that neither system performance nor component reliability are compromised.
Contract Specification
Where the supply and installation of the system is to be undertaken by an outside contractor, IPD will prepare tender documentation and invite bids from suitably qualified companies.

For a design and build contract, Employer's Requirements will be prepared setting out the basic design and the standards to which materials, system performance and installation procedures must comply.

For a formal contract, Tender Documents will be prepared which will specify the precise details of all equipment and procedures to be used in the installation.

The purpose of both these processes is to achieve a uniformity of standard against which competing contractors can submit quotations. Selection of the preferred contractor can then be undertaken on the basis of the most competitive tender.

Where installation is to be undertaken by the client's own workforce or, in the case of a construction project, by the main contractor, the contract specification will take the form of guidelines and material purchasing lists.
