Inquiry #1: The bid quantity for Timber Lagging,Bid Item #72, is given on the bid form as 189MBF. The quantity for the Timber Lagging shown for Wall #1 (on sheet #93 of the plans)is 83MBF, which seems accurate.

Based on our take off, the quantity for the Timber Lagging at Wall #2 (shown on sheet #111 of the plans as 106MBF) seems low by about 7MBF. We come up with 113.8MBF of Timber Lagging for Wall #2.

Can you please confirm that there is only 106MBF of Timber Lagging on Wall #2?


Thank you.
