Plan Sheet / Specification Reference=Item 15 & 25 "Remove Yellow" & "Lead Comp"

Question= All yellow was removed and repainted on a prior project a few years ago. Will you verify and respond via an addendum.

  • Please bid per the current contract document.






Q:12/19/06
R:12/22/06
Plan Sheet / Specification Reference=Special Provisions, section 5-1.15
"PROJECT INFORMATION" lists 2 items: Wall (Masonry Block) Log of test
borings; and Sample of Security forms....

Question=How can one obtain this information.  Who is the contact for
security clearance to visit the site.  The information in the Specials, page
1, is incorrect.

  • There isn't any log of test borings available for this project. The phone numnber in Section 5-1.15 of the Special Provisions referes the caller to another phone number,  which is correct.







Q:12/27/06
R:12/28/06
Plan Sheet / Specification Reference=Item 34, Minor Conc Wall Footing, Plan
sheet # 7 'C-3'

Question=Plans do not provide existing grade @ top of footing.  Plan
indicates TF Grade of 160.18 for first 33.251 m, then TF Grade of 160.86 for
final 33.251 m.  Therefore there will be a step of 680 mm at midpoint.
Typical section is drawn to look as if top of footing will be same grade as
existing section but it will not be.  At mid point it will be at least 680
mm below existing.  How does Contractor determine top of footing depth below
existing?  What is placed on area from top of footing to match existing
surface and how is that material paid for?  The wall is 66.502 m long, per
typical footing is 2 m wide & 450 mm thick, which would total 59.852 m3.
Bid item is a "Final pay quantity" of 40 m3.  Have we misunderstood the
footing dimensions?

  • Please bid per the current contract documents.
