ACCESSIBILITY CONSTRUCTION UPDATES
March 18, 2015
Final layout drawings have been reviewed with the architect and the detailed design phase is moving forward. Several visits have been made by the mechanical design staff and drawings are nearing completion. It was decided to move forward with a single prime contract that included the elevator equipment rather than bid it separately to improve the completion schedule. It was also decided to do the engineering and request alternates in the bid for single and three phase power. Midwest Environmental is meeting with our staff today to address any asbestos and lead paint issues prior to awarding the project.
