Inquiry No.
Plan Sheet / Specification Reference= Section 4 Page 8 Begining of work, time of
completion and liquidated damages for contract # 11-074804. 

Will 90 working days be alotted per facility or is that the total working days for this contract. 
I also noticed that liquidated damages are $400.00 per day which is substantially higher than 
the typical $250.00 per day. Is there some reason for this?

  • The total working days for this job is 90 working days and the liquidated damages are $400.00/day.The LD's are higher because this building needs to be completed and operational before next winter.
