RECOMMENDED PCAS FIELD TRIPS:
1. Trip No. 1 for Geotechnical Engineer - This trip should coincide with the
start of pile driving. The trip will include checking the Contractor's
equipment, method of positioning piles and witnessing the first few days of
pile driving. During the pile driving, the Geotechnical Engineer will keep
his own pile driving records for comparison with those kept by the Contractor.
2. Trip No. 2 for Geotechnical Engineer - This trip should take place during
the driving of the piles for Substation No. 2. The engineer will take the
time to inspect all piles driven since his last visit and to review all the
pile driving records. Should a problem have arisen before this time frame
which necessitated a field trip by the Geotechnical Engineer, that field trip
may possibly take the place of this second trip.
3. Structural Engineer Trip - This trip should be timed for the placing of'
the concrete for the Substation No. 2 pile caps and deck. Before the concrete
placement, the engineer shall provide on-site consultation for the concrete
batch plant, the concrete mix, the forms and bracing, the reinforcing steel,
and the Contractor's method of placing of the concrete. He should also
observe the actual concrete placement.
4. Trip No. 1 for Electrical Engineer - This trip should be made at the
completion of the installation of the transformer and the switchgear at
Substation No. 2 including all connecting wiring and bus duct within the
substation and the connection of the substation to the two 13.8 KV feeders.
The engineer will provide on-site consultation for the entire installation and
will witness the energizing at the entire substation.
5. Trip No. 2 for Electrical Engineer - This trip should be made at the
completion of the secondary distribution system from Substation No. 2
including all controls. The engineer will provide on-site consultation for
the entire installation from the switchgear to and including the cubicles. He
will witness the energizing of the 480-Volt system and the testing of same by
