consultant to prepare, manage and report on the construction progress. We have not specifically listed any
consultants in the project manual, but you will be required to submit the qualifications for your preferred
consultant during the bidding for approval in the final addendum.
b)
Section 01 32 00 requires a variety of monthly reports related to schedule, which must be provided. The
schedule must be submitted as soon as possible following contract execution and the owner and designer
must be notified anytime that it changes. It is critical that the contractor effectively manage the schedule.
c)
The building enclosure for this project is designed to provide a continuous air/vapor/weather barrier that
includes the roof, walls, foundations, slab on grade and fenestrations. Contractor is required to coordinate
all materials and installations related to completion of this system as part of their work. Shop drawings for

all connections and details are required. Bidders are advised to carefully review the details to understand
the extent and sequencing of the system.
d)
Testing is required for the building enclosure mock up and certain elements of the in place installation
including roofs and fenestration. These tests are part of the contractor’s scope and must be performed in
accordance with the listed testing procedures by certified professionals.

Exterior cladding consists of masonry and metal panels. The masonry is brick. Please note the type of
masonry veneer anchors indicated in the specifications also serve as the means of attachment for the
insulation. Metal panel scope includes the design and installation of the support framing.
f)
Coordination drawings are required for all work to be included in concealed spaces including shafts, above
ceilings, in masonry and concrete walls and below slabs as well as the ceilings themselves. The contractor
is required to manage this effort to verify the installation of all work and identify conflicts prior to
construction. Bidders are advised to include the necessary effort to perform this work in their bid. Please
note that the specifications require coordination drawings to be complete before steel shop drawings can be
approved. This effort will need to start immediately after contract execution.
g)
Temporary Heating and Cooling Requirements: If Owner authorizes use of permanent HVAC system for
temporary use during construction, Contractor acknowledges that this project uses forced air to provide
heating, cooling and fresh air. Contractor is responsible for any changes in sequencing or additional
equipment necessary to provide temporary heating and cooling beyond at any state of construction. Even
though the specifications state that the owner must approve use of temporary systems, it is our intent to
allow it. Authorization will be refused or revoked if the contractor does not take reasonable and adequate
care to protect the owner’s equipment during construction.
