d. Carpet made of polyester fiber (for use in low and medium wear applications).
e. Floor tiles and patio block containing recovered rubber or plastic.
f. Hydraulic Mulch products containing recovered papers or woods.
g. Compost made from yard trimming, leaves, and/or grass clippings.
3.23.2. Incorporate into the [design] [RFP] [IFB] package (to the maximum extent
practicable) any procedures for stopping the work in the immediate area, if any
archeological resources are discovered during the earth disturbance.
3.24 SHORT CIRCUIT AND COORDINATION STUDY
This service is to be used primarily on electrical distribution projects. It is not for use on the
typical facility design. (For the typical facility, this design effort is considered to be a part of
the project design and calculations.) Determine the short circuit duty required for all
protective devices and switchgear and the proper selection and setting of all protective
devices to ensure that the electrical system will be properly coordinated. Back-up
calculations and time-current characteristic curves must be submitted. The final submittal
of relay settings and time-current characteristic curves shall be made when the exact
relays, circuit breakers or fuses to be used are known.
3.25 DESTRUCTIVE TESTING
In those instances where information is needed for a project but it is hidden from view or
unavailable due to existing facilities, then destructive testing to gain access to this
information is highly encouraged. If it is unanticipated and not included in the current
Statement of A-E Services, then the A-E is advised to contact the Contract Specialist to
request that this be added as a scope change. Each such request will be considered on
it's own merit and, if adopted, will be awarded as a modification to the A-E contract.
3.26 FIELD VERIFICATION PRIOR TO CONSTRUCTION
Reconfirm site conditions which generated the basis of design. Any revision to the design
required as a result of this survey should be made available to the PL.
3.27 DESIGNER TO ROICC REPORT
Identify "critical" inspection features of the project which will assist the ROICC in the
development of an effective inspection plan and the assignment of available expertise.
The report shall include items such as those outlined in the "Designer to ROICC
Presentation" paragraph of this Guide.
