Type of Addition: Answers to Questions

Overview:

Question # 1 – Please confirm the Architect wants the letters to be reverse channel (which means they would be illuminated by their description).  If they were fabricated metal that would indicate non-illuminated.  The issue I see with them being illuminated on the solid concrete wall is that there is nowhere to do the wiring other than a large reflection panel.

Letters to be reverse channel and illuminated. Wall is cmu block where conduit is to be used to provide power.

Question # 2 – The plans call for fabricated metal (which are non-illuminated).  Should we assume they are not illuminated?

See above.

Question # 3 – Will nighttime work be allowed? If so please specify what activities would be prohibited.

Nighttime work allowed. Low noise activities allowed.

Question # 4 – It will be difficult to keep the existing entrance open to traffic during the construction period and still maintain worker and public safety. Will we be allowed to cut in a new temporary entrance roadway as required to facilitate traffic?

Yes, as long as temporary road does not require additional tree removals; does not pass over trees to remain rootzones; does not impact proposed storm water management facilities; permittable by town, county and state agencies; or is outside the limits of work. Areas impacted to be completely removed and does not impact finished work.
