District to hire a DSA Inspector of Record and if needed,a special inspections and testing firm.Yuba CollegeCampus, 2088North Beale Road,Marysville,California 95901Note During the reinforcement process the building must remain weather-tight.Preferred start date to commence May 18, 2019. All demolition materials to beproperly disposed of by the contractor and a waste materials manifest shall beprovided to the District.Notes:Include a structural design of an option to replace rotted roof deck or wood members of the affected roofstructure below the roofs noted. For building 400 at Lake County Campus, this will be bid with contractors lateras a cost per square foot option if discovered later after the existing roofs are removed. At Yuba CollegeCampus, this will not likely be applied for building 600 as the structural repairs will require that the affectedsection of the roof is just planned up front to be removed and replaced with a pre-engineered and detailedsolution. The roof structure at the WCC 600 roof is newer and not likely included in this request.Include new seamless roof gutters with oversized downspouts and leaf screens on the WCC 600 and LCC 400roofs.The overall projects schedule would be to generate design documents as soon as possible, submit them toDSA for review and approval, then send the design documents out for contractor proposals, and complete theconstruction work during the May through early August timeline in 2019. Please submit a preliminary schedulethat supports this overall projects schedule.Page 5 of 3
