Plan Sheet / Specification Reference= Item #33 Class 2 Aggregate Base


Question= In the special provisions section 10-1.21 Earthwork, you tell us that the foundation treatment material below the retaining wall footing will be measured and paid for as structure backfill (retaining wall). On sheet Q-1 (summary of quantities) you list quantities for the Class 2 AB to be used in the structural section and then refer us to sheet R-1(retaining wall plan) for additional quantities of class 2. Sheet R-1 quantifies class 2 AB in the wall quantities that is used for foundation treatment. It then appears that you have added these two quantities together to come up with the Bid Quantity. This is confusing. Is the Foundation Treatment Being paid for by the CY as Class 2 AB in item #33 or as structure backfill in item#26? Please clairfy. 

 

  • Your inquiry has been received and is being reviewed. Thank you for your patience.
