84.062(8)(b) (b) No later than 10 days following the issuance of a notice of intent to award a design-build contract under sub. (7) (c), the office shall verify that the design-builder will perform not less than 30 percent of the construction services under the contract with labor provided by employees of the design-builder or member and equipment owned or rented by the design-builder or member.
84.062(8)(c) (c) The design-builder shall submit to the office in the form prescribed by the office documentation of the construction services the design-builder or member will perform and the dollar value of the services.
84.062(8)(d) (d) The office shall calculate the percentage of total construction services identified in the contract to be performed by the design-builder or member by subtracting the value of specialty services to be performed from the total contract amount and dividing the dollar value of construction services to be performed by the design-builder or member by the difference. If the value of construction services to be performed by the design-builder or member is less than 30 percent of the value of all construction services required under the contract, the office shall cancel the contract award.
84.062(9) (9)Project delivery. An individual identified in a response to a request for qualifications or in a technical proposal may be replaced by a design-builder if the office determines that the new individual meets the qualifications described in the response to the request for qualifications or in the technical proposal and that the individual's qualifications are at least equal to the qualifications of the individual being replaced.
84.062(10) (10)Liability.
84.062(10)(a) (a) Nothing in this section shall be construed as relieving a design-builder of 3rd-party liability or liability for loss or damage to property of the state or a county or municipality.
84.062(10)(b) (b) All design services, including architectural and engineering services, provided under a design-build contract are services and not products.
