Rather than to wait until shop drawings come in, I think it would be
much better to discuss this with the contractor in the Pre-award
Meeting. Let him know (in front of the Owner) that when he signs the
contract, the sub list is considered part of his contract (make sure
that is also stated in your spec.).
After the project is underway, it would be difficult to get the GC to
change subs. It is also difficult, if not impossible, to have all the
We usually require just the major ones.
