1. It appears the existing pipe bollards and concrete apron will be left in place while pouring the new slab, is this correct? If so, the existing concrete will have to be broken out and replaced to install the new foundations. 2. Do you have a detail showing the new connection between the new roof and the existing wall panels? 3. At the tire shop, will the temporary buildings be removed prior to construction to allow access to remove and replace the wall panels? 4. Can I pick up a full set of drawings and specifications? 5. Your general notes talks about hydroseeding or slab sodding disturbed by construction, or there actually any areas of grass on site? 6. Would it be possible to add Mueller, Inc., Port Allen, LA. To the prior approved list for the metal building manufactures?

just to clarify, addendum 1 states that we can use metal building design for the new canopy, does this mean that we do not have to use the structural steel design as shown on sheet S1.2 & S2.1?
lkingcollc on 19-Aug-2019 11:34:17 AM
on sheet S2.4 you require that all screws and rust be removed and treated with Everest system, I assume that the entire roof will not be coated just the screw heads. is this correct?
