1. Works subject
The present Technical Specifications Terms is aimed at defining the quality, the nature, the technical specifications, norms and standards necessary to the completion of project hereby presented.
Generally these technical specifications on the origin, quality and preparation of materials, construction norms and ways of execution of different parts of the project in accordance with standards. As per definition, Technical Specifications are specific to each category of works; hence it is convenient to refer to standards norms developed in the Country.
General Notice
The Contractor has strictly to respect standards. He is also obliged to respect terms and conditions of tender general terms in application in Republic of Rwanda. Each work having defects will be rejected and the contractor will be held responsible of consequences of such action.
2.1. Conditions of importation
All purchased materials will be received by the control team before use.
3.1.2. Source and approval of materials
The prime contractor has to present the source of materials, technical specifications of the supplier with the approval of the Engineer before using them in order to honor the execution period agreed upon.
a. Source of materials ordered from the factory
The ordered materials from the factories are approved by the control team.
The prime contractor will have to submit the list of the suppliers for official approval within 15 days after receiving the order. This list will have to be attached to the laboratory test results and other justifications likely to prove that each supply has the required quality specified in the present text of technical specifications and other contractual documents or others proposed while tendering. This procedure is not in any way the responsibility of the Prime Contractor. The Prime Contractor shall notify to the control team the different supplies of materials and will supervise the control tests. In case building materials used are not in conformity with those specified within the contract, the prime contractor shall in no way claim irresponsibility of the control team not to have ordered for the tests.
The prime contractor shall on daily basis avail to the control team the written record of supplied materials.
B. Source of local materials
The materials intended for the finishing, as well as sands and gravels will be from the quarries approved by the Control team.
The materials intended for the construction of the drainage systems will have to satisfy the conditions of the TSB.
The prime contractor is the only person to assess the quality of execution. All works should be in conformity with regulations and be carried out according to the professional rules. The prime contractor can carry out regular controls. In that case the entrepreneur will have to provide all the necessary means.
The document for the use of materials will contain all the information required by the control team, particularly quality tests, the site, surface area, and execution methods.
The approval of the control team only is not subject to the responsibility of the prime contractor in relation to the quality of materials provided and its conformity on the site. The reception of materials will take place on the site after the supply and before use. This will guarantee its conformity.
Concerning excavated materials, the control team will at any time cancel the approval of borrowed materials or the quarry if found it does not provide materials that are in conformity with the required specifications and the prime contractor will hence be obliged to provide a better alternative.
The sources of all materials must be submitted to the control team within a period of 30 days that follows the notification of signing the contract.
The prime contractor will recommend the ratio of the concretes at least 30 days before starting the works. The control team will have 15 days to supervise the works. The prime contractor must avail in time the agreed concrete in order to satisfy the required specifications.
2.1.3. Rejection of materials.
All materials found not in conformity with required specifications at the time of verification must be transported outside the site by the prime contractor and at his own cost in a period fixed by the control team.
2. 1.4. Source, quality and condition of uses of materials for the works Quality and source of materials
Materials necessary for the construction works will have to be provided entirely with the care and charges on the prime contractor in order to ensure the completion of the work within the agreed duration.  They must be of better quality, available on the market, without any default and professionally installed
The materials and source (rivers, quarries, and factories) must be approved by the control team before use.
The Prime contractor will preferably use locally produced materials as well as the utilization is compatible with the agreed terms. Aggregates and stones.
The materials to be used will be:
–    Sand
–    Natural or crushed gravels
–    Crushed hard stones
Aggregates for plain concrete other than sand will be indicated by their specific dimensions d and D (d: minimal, D: maximal). Final particle sizes will be defined within the concrete tests. In any case the weight of materials retained on the sieve of diameter D will not exceed 10% of the weight subjected to the sifting.
In the same way, 10% more of the total weight will be able to pass through the sieve of diameter d. Again the weight retained on the sieve of the diameter (D+d)/2 will be 1/3 and 2/3 of the total weight.
The gravels will be thoroughly clean. Cleanness will be such that less than 2% of the aggregates will be constituted by hard stones.
Crushed stones:
The aggregates to be used are broken up in particles of gauge 0/25 mm presenting a Los Angeles coefficient lower or equal to thirty five (35). The materials will be in any case subjected to the approval of the prime contractor. They will be free of mud and the organic matter.
Table of concrete
Designation, proportioning while binding, the destinations and the compressive strength of the various concretes are indicated in the table below:
(Compression at 28 days)
B0     Sealing coat and blocking     150
B1     Coarse concrete of foundation, massive supports and butted of drains     250     180
B2     Fondation rafts, culverts, gutter, etc     300     230
B3     Plain concrete for facing smoothness) and flooring base.     350     270
B4     Reinforced concrete for very solid elements: slab for inspection chambers, pits of reception of wastewater.     400     330
In the laboratory tests, the resistance that has to be found after 7 and 28 days must at least be equal to that indicated in the above table.
The concretes and mortars above will be used in the following works:
B0: concrete for prime coat under the stone foundation.
B3: reinforced concrete:
–    Clamping;
–    Lintels of span less than or equalizes to 2 m;
B4: concrete for lintels and beams of span bigger than 2 m.
Cement ratios above are given only as an indication. They will be defined according to the nature and of the particle sizes of the aggregates.    They indicate minimum ratios.
The composition of the B0 and B1 concretes is as follows:
B0     150     420     840
B1     250     420     840
The entrepreneur will have to issue to the prime contractor recommendations on the compositions of the B0 and B1concretes, and to abide by the approval of water volume to be added per m 3 during the agreed duration in execution of works.
The thresholds of granularity will be as follows:
CONCRETE     SIEVE                               (mm)
Prime coat     3     40
Coarse concrete for foundation     3     30
Reinforced concrete.      3     25
The weight of the aggregates retained on the sieve corresponding to their threshold of higher granularity and that passing the lower threshold will one by one be lower than 10% of the initial weight that is subjected to the sifting.
For control purpose there will be a measurement of proportion in weight of the aggregates passing during washing in the sieve No.34 (2 mm) if necessary including the measurement of plasticity of the elements lower than two (2) mm, per fifty (50) m 3 of aggregates.
The aggregates of different categories will be stored in separate batches in manner of not being able to mix.
The storage area will be secured in a special way and precautions shall be taken to avoid segregation in during storage or recovery and to prevent an accumulation of mud at the bottom.
It is included in the cost of execution of works. No extra funds are planned for it.
2.2. Cement
Cement to be used is from Mashyuza factory or any other imported cement that has better qualities than Mashyuza’s. It is of Portland type without secondary component of class 250/325 (at the choice of entrepreneur). The cement delivery will be done in whole bags or metallic containers. Cement will be stored in waterproof silos or stores. Cement that the entrepreneur intends to use will be subjected to the approval of the prime contractor.
Cements will be transported into reinforced and impermeable paper bags of 50 kg.

The best qualified sand having the norms and standard is KAYUMBU sand.
2.4 Placement of the concrete
In order to avoid the segregation, it is prohibited to drop the concrete into a formwork from a height higher than one meter (1m). The B2 and B4 concretes will have to be vibrated using poker vibrators. The vibration time should be controlled in order to avoid any segregation or rise of fine particles on the surface. They should not touch the formwork or the reinforcements.
After placing the concrete, the surfaces of the works must be protected by door mats, plaits or fabrics streaming day and night by repeated curing as many times as necessary.
The curing of other mortars and concrete should be made by moistening or an impervious temporary coating. The concretes and mortars after curing should necessarily be approved by the prime contractor.
Any delivery of concretes and mortars after curing will be followed by the submission of an original certificate indicating the time after which the products have to be rejected.
The curing is applied to defined surfaces and their recovery. In case coating is used for curing of recovery surfaces, repair and cleaning of these surfaces is necessary before installation of the concrete.
Reject of concrete or mortar is not acceptable. The entrepreneur must recover any surplus and deposit it at a place approved by the prime contractor. The materials deposited should be covered with a soil layer.
–    Mixing water
The mixing water shall be provided by the entrepreneur: it must satisfy physical and chemical requirements set by NFP 18 303 standards.
In addition, the mixing water should not contain more than two (2) grams per liter of suspended matter, or more than two (2) grams per liter of dissolved salts. It will particularly be free from sulphates, chlorides of organic matter.
The source of water will be identified by the entrepreneur and approved by the representative of the prime contractor.
–  Curing of concretes
The concrete curing will be done by moistening. The concrete will be maintained wet for ten days after the placement.
The means to be used will be either of the fabrics, plaits or doormats maintained wet constantly, or a slight and permanent watering of surfaces. The intermittent watering of surfaces is prohibited. The impermeable formwork will be maintained wet in the same way.
It is prohibited to loads concrete, particularly walking on it and to introduce other installations before the prime contractor approves sufficient resistance of the concrete.
The approval of prime contractor on the concrete resistance does not hinder the responsibility of the entrepreneur. The entrepreneur shall be responsible for any degradation of concrete, either caused by excessive load or any installation before the concrete attains its resistance.
– Additives of mortars and concrete
The use of additives for preparation of mortars and concrete will be liable to prior agreement of the prime contractor. To support this request in intending to use additives, the entrepreneur should attach results of laboratory tests that are conducted in a laboratory approved by the prime contractor.
