We noticed in the project documents that there is only 60 calender days to complete this project. We strongly feel that this is not enough time to complete the project. We estimate that it will require at a minimum 120 working days to complete the project. The specification state that 1,200 sq. ft. of interior steel has to be prepared (blasted), prior to priming and that the inspector has to approve the blast prior to priming. It is our veiw that in order to make this work and enhance the project schedule a dehumidification unit should be required for the interior of the tank. From the contract ducuments it seems that the exterior of the tank contains lead paint. However, there is provided test results with the documents stating such. Since the work is going to be performed in such a confined area and if the exterior existing paint is lead then I would suggest requiring a dust collector for the exterior work.

The Contract days will be reviewed. The contractor will need to make a determination to use a dehumidification unit or not. The District will not require one. Finally, the tank does not contain lead. Any changes related to the specifications will be addressed in an addendum.
