APPENDIX A: Instructions to Bidders
APPENDIX B: Affidavit of Non-Collusion
                                 DEMOLITION CONTRACT

       THIS DEMOLITION CONTRACT (the “Contract”), effective as of the date of the last
party to sign below, is between ______________________________, whose address is
______________________________, (referred to as the "Contractor") and Enterprise Group
Property Development, LLC, a Michigan limited liability company, whose address is One
Jackson Square, Suite 1100, Jackson, Michigan, 49201, (referred to as the "Owner"), for the
demolition of structures on property as set forth herein.

For valuable consideration the parties hereby agree as follows:

1.     SCOPE OF WORK: Demolition is the process of using wrecking machinery (including
       excavators, skid steers, front-end loaders, dozers, cranes, concrete crushing units, trucks
       and trailers) to raise, lower, crib, underpin, demolish and move or remove structures,
       where required and in the manner required, by the Plans and Specifications set forth in
       the attached Exhibit A, which is made a part of this Contract. Demolition services
       include, but are not limited to, undermining buildings, razing building walls, loading
       materials, sorting steel, tearing out old work to make way for new work (including
       concrete reinforcement with wire mesh and rebar, multilayer roofing, trees, stumps,
       landscaping and sprinklers and mortar based tile floors and walls) and removing asbestos,
       and lead based paint. Contractor shall provide all necessary demolition labor, materials,
       and equipment, and perform all demolition services as set forth in Exhibit A, (referred to
       as the “Project”). Such Plans and Specifications may contain pictures, diagrams or
       measurements of the work area and equipment together with a description of the work to
       be done, materials to be used, and the equipment to be used or installed.

2.     WORK SITE: The structures to be demolished and removed in connection with the
       Project are located on Owner’s property at 600-620 North Mechanic Street, Jackson,
       Michigan, more commonly known as the Acme Building property, (referred to as "the
       Work Site"). Upon the signing of this Contract by both parties, Owner hereby authorizes
       Contractor to commence work on the Project by the Commencement Date stated herein.
       Contractor shall complete the usual and customary excavation and grading on the Work
       Site as may be required in the Plans and Specifications to complete the Project. Unless
       called for in the Plans and Specifications, no landscaping, finish grading or filling is to be
       performed at the Work Site by the Contractor.

3.     TIME OF COMPLETION: Contractor shall commence the work to be performed
       under this Contract on or before _______ (the “Commencement Date”), and shall
       complete the work on or before _______ (the “Completion Date”).

4.     PERMITS: Contractor shall apply for and obtain any and all such permits and
       regulatory approvals as may be required by the local municipal/county government, or
       any other governmental or administrative agency, in order to legally complete the work
       required hereunder, and Contractor acknowledges that the cost thereof has been included



                                                 1
     by Contractor as part of the Project price, and shall be borne by Contractor.

5.   SOIL CONDITIONS: Other than as provided in the Specifications, Contractor shall
     have no responsibility for the condition of the soils at the Work Site, which are not due to
     the negligence of Contractor or its sub-contractors. Any excavation or other work
     required by the Owner not specified in this Contract, or in the Plans and Specifications,
     other than the usual and customary excavation and grading shall be agreed to in a Change
     Order for an amount in addition to the Contract Price. Contractor acknowledges that
     certain environmental conditions present at the property require that various foundations
     of the Work Site remain in place. Contractor agrees that it has read and understands the
     requirements in regard to foundations which must remain in place at the Work Site, and
     the environmental conditions existing at the Work Site, and that Contractor has included
     these requirements in the bid price, and agrees to abide by these requirements in
     completing the Project.

6.   INSURANCE: During the entire term of this Contract, Contractor shall maintain
     Comprehensive General Liability insurance, Workers’ Compensation insurance, and
     Automobile Liability insurance as follows:

             Workers’ Compensation             $100,000 or statutory limit as required under the

                                               Property           $500,000 each occurrence
                                               Damage             $500,000 aggregate

                                                                  $1,000,000 aggregate

                                               Property           $100,000,000 each
                                               Damage             occurrence
             or Combined Single Limit                             $1,000,000

     All insurers shall either be licensed or authorized to do business in the State of Michigan.
     The City of Jackson, the Owner, the Project Manager, The Enterprise Group of Jackson,
     Inc., (the “EG”), and the Owner’s and the EG’s officers, agents, and employees, shall be
     listed as additional insureds on all Comprehensive General Liability coverage, and shall
     be provided with Certificates of Insurance, which reflect this additional insured status.

7.   SURVEY AND TITLE: If the Project is near the Owner’s property boundary, Owner
     will point out property lines to the Contractor. If the Owner or Contractor have any
     doubts about the location of the property lines which cannot be otherwise resolved,



                                               2
      Owner shall provide Contractor with boundary stakes through a licensed surveyor. In
      addition, upon request by Contractor, Owner shall provide Contractor documentation that
      Owner has title to the Work Site and shall provide Contractor copies of any covenants,
      conditions, or restrictions that affect the Work Site.

8.    CHANGES TO SCOPE OF WORK: Owner may make changes to the scope of the
      work, including changes to the Plans and Specifications, from time to time during the
      construction of the Project. However, any such change or modification shall only be
      made by a written "Change Order", signed by both parties. Such approved Change
      Orders shall become a part of this Contract. Owner agrees to pay any increase in the cost
      of the Project as a result of a Change Order. In the event the cost of a Change Order is
      not known at the time a Change Order is executed, the Contractor shall estimate the cost
      thereof. Contractor shall advise Owner when it reasonably appears to Contractor that the
      actual cost will exceed the estimate by more than 10%, and in that event, Owner shall
      determine whether the Change Order work will be completed or terminated. If the
      Change Order work is terminated, Owner shall pay the cost of the work performed prior
      to the date of termination of the Change Order.

9.    CONTRACT PRICE: In accordance with Contractor’s accepted bid, Owner agrees to
      pay Contractor the sum of $______________ for performing the services set forth in the
      Plans and Specifications. Contractor shall be paid as follows:

            Contractor will invoice Owner on a monthly basis for progress payments,
            which invoices shall each be for a pro-rata portion of the total amount of
            the Contractor’s fee, divided by the months remaining in the term of the
            Contract. Each invoice shall be due no earlier than thirty days after receipt
            by Owner of the invoice. In some instances, these invoices shall be paid
            through two-party checks made payable to Contractor and Owner, from
            grant funds to be distributed to Owner as provided for in the attached Sub-
            Grantee Agreement between Owner and the City of Jackson. Any two-
            party checks received by Owner shall be endorsed by Owner and delivered
            to Contractor as soon as practicable after Owner receives the checks from
            the City, but in any event not later than ten (10) days after receipt of such
            checks by Owner. The invoicing and timing of payment for any work
            performed pursuant to Change Orders shall be negotiated between
            Contractor and Owner, at the time of execution of the Change Order.

      Contractor shall furnish Owner with appropriate releases or waivers of lien from sub-
      contractors and suppliers for all work performed and/or materials provided, at the time
      the next periodic payment shall be due. Upon completion of all work and request for
      final payment, the Contractor shall have furnished 100% waivers of lien from each
      supplier and sub-contractor covering all items of the work and all materials. Failure to
      supply waivers of lien for the entire job upon completion and final payment request will
      be considered grounds for withholding final payment.

10.   LATE PAYMENT/DEFAULT: A failure to make payment for a period in excess of



                                              3
      thirty (30) days following receipt by Owner of grant funds from the City of Jackson shall
      be deemed a material breach of this Contract. If payment is not made within thirty (30)
      days of when due, as outlined in Section 9 above, Contractor may suspend work on the
      Project until such time as all payments due have been made, without breach of the
      Contract, pending payment or resolution of any dispute, however, Contractor shall
      provide Owner with seven (7) days notice of such intended suspension so that Owner has
      an opportunity to cure the default, prior to suspension of work. If the default is not cured
      by Owner during the cure period, Contractor shall have the option to terminate the
      Contract.

11.   SUSPENSION: The Owner may suspend work on the Project without prior written
      notice, in the event of emergency or unforeseen circumstances which require immediate
      suspension of work, in the judgment of the Owner or the Project Manager. If the Owner
      suspends the Project, Contractor shall be paid for work performed prior to the suspension,
      in accordance with the payment schedule contained herein. When the Project is resumed,
      Contractor shall be paid for reasonable expenses incurred by Contractor due to the
      interruption of the Project, if the Project is suspended through no fault of the Contractor.
      If the Owner suspends the Project for more than ninety (90) cumulative days, for reasons
      other than the fault of the Contractor, the Contractor shall have the option to terminate
      this Contract, upon not less than seven (7) days written notice to the Owner.

12.   TERMINATION: Commencement, continuation, and completion of work under this
      Contract is subject to availability of grant funds. The Owner may terminate this Contract
      upon not less than seven (7) days written notice to the Contractor for the Owner’s
      convenience and without cause. In the event of such termination by Owner, the
      Contractor shall be compensated for work performed prior to the termination, and
      Termination Expenses, which shall be defined as reasonable expenses directly
      attributable to the termination, for which the Contractor is not otherwise compensated,
      plus an agreed-upon amount for Contractor’s anticipated profit for the Project.

13.   ASSIGNMENT: Neither party may assign this Contract, or payments due under the
      Contract, without the other party’s written consent. Any such assignment without the
      written consent of the other party shall be void and of no effect.

14.   INTERPRETATION:

      (a)    Interpretation of Documents. This Contract, the Plans, the Specifications, and
      the terms of the documents contained in the bid package, (the “Bid Documents”), are
      intended to supplement one another. In the event of a conflict in material terms, the

      displayed on the Plans but not called for in the Specifications, or if the Work is called for
      in the Specifications, but not displayed on the Plans, Contractor shall be required to
      perform the Work as though it were called for and displayed in all documents. All terms

      the Bid Documents, constitute the entire agreement of the parties, and shall be interpreted
      together, when the terms of this Contract and the agreement between the parties is being
      construed. No other agreements, oral or written, pertaining to the Work to be performed
      under this Contract, exist between the parties. This Contract may only be modified by a
      written agreement signed by both parties.

      (c)     Governing Law/Jurisdiction. This Contract shall be interpreted and governed in
      accordance with the laws of the State of Michigan, without regard to choice of laws
      provisions. The Courts having jurisdiction in the County of Jackson, Michigan, shall be
      the proper venue for any litigation which is filed between the parties, regarding disputes
      arising from or relating to this Contract.

15.   ATTORNEYS’ FEES AND COSTS: If any party to this Contract brings a cause of
      action against the other party arising from or relating to this Contract, the prevailing party

      condition at the completion of the Project.

      (e)    “Section 3 requirements”: Compliance - The Contractor shall comply with

      and orders issued thereunder prior to the execution of this Contract shall be a
      material condition that is binding upon the Contractor, and any of the Contractor’s



                                                5

disability exists that would prevent compliance with these requirements.

      i)      The Contractor further agrees to include the following language in all
              subcontracts executed under this Contract:

                       “The work to be performed under this
                       Contract/Agreement is a project assisted under a
                       program providing direct Federal financial assistance
                       from HUD and is subject to the requirements of Section
                       3 of the Housing and Urban Development Act of 1968,
                       as amended (12 USC 1701). Section 3 requires that to
                       the greatest extent feasible opportunities for training
                       and employment be given to low- and very low-income
                       residents of the project area, and that contracts for work
                       in connection with the project be awarded to business
                       concerns that provide economic opportunities for low-
                       and very low-income persons residing in the
                       metropolitan area in which the project is located.”

       ii)     The Contractor further agrees to ensure that opportunities for
               training and employment arising in connection with the Project are
               given to low- and very low-income persons residing within the City
               of Jackson; and where feasible, priority should be given to low- and
               very low-income persons within the service area of the Project or the
               neighborhood in which the Project is located, and to low- and very
               low-income participants in other HUD programs; and award
               contracts for work undertaken in connection with the Project
               (including reduction and abatement of lead-based paint hazards), to
               business concerns that provide economic opportunities for low- and
               very low-income persons residing within the metropolitan area in
               which the CDBG-funded project is located; where feasible, priority
               should be given to business concerns that provide economic
               opportunities to low- and very low-income residents within the
               service area or the neighborhood in which the project is located, and
               to low- and very low-income participants in other HUD programs.

               The Contractor certifies and agrees that no contractual or other legal
               incapacity exists that would prevent compliance with these
               requirements.

Owner, before commencing work on the Project. The work schedule shall detail
beginning and completion dates for each major component of the project.

loss or damage will be accepted by Owner and no reimbursement shall be made to
Contractor by Owner for any such losses. Contractor is encouraged to maintain
insurance to cover any such losses.

(h) The Owner will designate a Project Manager, who shall have the authority to
inspect all work and materials on the Project, and to stop work on the Project when
it appears to the Project Manager that the requirements of the Contract are not being
met. The Project Manager also shall have the authority to reject any work or
materials which are not performed in a workmanlike manner, or which do not meet
the requirements of the plans and specifications, in the judgment of the Project
Manager. Any such rejected work shall be redone in a workmanlike manner, and
any such rejected materials shall be removed from the Work Site and replaced with
acceptable materials, conforming to the requirements of the Specifications. The

Manager any questionable or obvious error or omission that may be contained in the
contract documents. The Contractor shall not proceed with work until the Project
Manager has resolved the error or omission.

(i) The Contractor, any of its employees or sub-contractors and their employees
shall be considered and are acknowledged to be independent contractors and not
employees of the Owner. The Contractor shall exercise all supervisory control and
general control over all workers' duties, payment of wages to Contractor's
employees and the right to hire, fire, and discipline their employees and workers.

   creed, religion, ancestry, national origin, sex, disability or other
   handicap, age, marital/familial status, or status with regard to public
   assistance. The Contractor will take affirmative action to insure that all
   employment practices are free from such discrimination. Such
   employment practices include, but are not limited to the following:
   hiring, upgrading, demotion, transfer, recruitment or recruitment
   advertising, layoff, termination, rates of pay or other forms of
   compensation, and selection for training, including apprenticeship. The
   Contractor agrees to post in conspicuous places, available to employees
   and applicants for employment, notices to be provided by the
   contracting agency setting forth the provisions of this non-
   discrimination clause. The Contractor agrees to comply with the non-
   discrimination in employment and contracting opportunities laws,
   regulations, and executive orders referenced in 24 CFR 570.607, as
   revised by Executive Order 13279. The applicable non-discrimination
   provisions in Section 109 of the Housing and Community Development
   Act are still applicable.

   iii. Section 504 - The Contractor agrees to comply with all Federal
   regulations issued pursuant to compliance with Section 504 of the
   Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended (29 USC 794), which prohibits
   discrimination against individuals with disabilities or handicaps in any
   Federally assisted program.

2. Affirmative Action:

       i. Approved Plan - The Contractor agrees that it shall be committed
       to carry out an Affirmative Action Program in keeping with the
       principles as provided in President’s Executive Order 11246 of
       September 24, 1965. Upon request, Contractor will provide Owner
       with a copy of such Affirmative Action Plan, for approval by
       Owner.



                                8
                     ii. Women and Minority-Owned Businesses (W/MBE) - The
                     Contractor will actively solicit small businesses, minority business
                     enterprises, and women’s business enterprises for the maximum
                     practicable opportunity to participate in the performance of this
                     Contract. As used in this Agreement, the term “small business”
                     means a business that meets the criteria set forth in Section 3(a) of
                     the Small Business Act, as amended, (15 USC 632), and “minority
                     and women’s business enterprises” means a business at least fifty-
                     one (51%) percent owned and controlled by minority group
                     members or women. For the purposes of this definition, “minority
                     group members” are Afro-Americans, Spanish-speaking, Spanish
                     surnamed or Spanish-heritage Americans, Asian Americans, and
                     American Indians.       The Contractor may rely on written
                     representations by businesses regarding their status as minority and
                     women business enterprises in lieu of an independent investigation.

                     iii. Access to Records - The Contractor shall furnish and cause each
                     of its own subcontractors to furnish all information and reports
                     required hereunder and will permit access to its books, records and
                     accounts by the Owner, the City of Jackson, HUD or its agent, or
                     other authorized Federal officials for purposes of investigation to
                     ascertain compliance with rules, regulations and provisions stated
                     herein.

                     iv. Notifications - The Contractor will send to each labor union or
                     representative of workers with which it has a collective bargaining
                     agreement or other contract or understanding, a notice advising the
                     labor union or worker’s representative of the Contractor’s
                     commitments hereunder, and shall post copies of the notice in
                     conspicuous places available to employees and applicants for
                     employment.

                     v. Equal Employment Opportunity and Affirmative Action
                     (EEO/AA) Statement - The Contractor will, in all solicitations or
                     advertisements for employees placed by or on behalf of the
                     Contractor in connection with this Contract, state that it is an Equal
                     Opportunity or Affirmative Action Employer.

17.   TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE: Time is of the essence in respect to the completion of
      the Project, and Contractor agrees to do the work covered by the contract in conformity
      with the provisions set forth herein, including the Plans and Specifications. Failure on the
      part of Contractor to complete the work by the Completion Date, shall constitute a default
      by the Contractor. Regardless of any other provision of this contract, if Contractor fails to
      complete the work by the Completion Date, the Contractor may be liable to the Owner for
      any damages incurred by the Owner due to such default. Contractor also shall pay a fee
      to Owner in the amount of $2,000.00 per day, for all days beyond the Completion Date,


                                               9
       during which the Project remains uncompleted. This liquidated damages provision is in
       addition to any legal rights and remedies which Owner may have to enforce the
       provisions of this Contract, and Owner may proceed with such legal rights and remedies
       in its discretion.

18.   DEFAULT: The Owner may at any time, by providing seven (7) days written notice to
      Contractor, terminate this contract and the Contractor's right to proceed with the Project,
      for just cause, which shall include, but is not limited to the following:

      (a)    Failure of Contractor to provide insurance and bonds as required, in the exact
             amounts and within the time specified or within the time of any agreed-upon
             extension thereof.

      (b)    Failure to perform the services required of Contractor hereunder within the time
             specified herein, or any agreed-upon extension thereof.

      (c)    The unauthorized substitution of materials and articles for those bid and specified.

      (d)    Failure to make progress upon the Project, if such failure endangers performance
             and/or completion of the Contract in accordance with its terms.

      (e)    Failure to perform in compliance with any provision of the Contract, which in the
             judgment of Owner, is a material provision.

      (f)    Owner reserves the right to withhold any or all payments until any defects in
             performance or materials have been corrected to Owner’s satisfaction.

      (g)    All remedies available to the Owner herein are cumulative and the election of one
             remedy shall not be deemed a waiver of any other remedy available to the Owner.

18.    PERFORMANCE BOND: Contractor shall furnish a performance bond in the full
       amount of the contract ensuring the Owner of faithful performance of all the provisions
       of the contract, and the satisfactory performance of any equipment required hereunder, in
       accordance with the requirements of the bid documents. The bond shall also ensure the
       Owner against defective workmanship and/or materials.

19.   LABOR AND MATERIAL (PAYMENT) BOND: Contractor shall furnish a labor and
      material (payment) bond for the period covered by the contract, in the full amount of the
      contract, for the protection of labor and material suppliers and sub-contractors, in
      accordance with the requirements of the bid documents.

20.   BOND REQUIREMENTS: The Contractor shall comply with the bonding and
      insurance requirements of 24 CFR 84.31 and 84.48, Bonding and Insurance, in regards to
      the Bonds required hereunder. The cost of the bonds shall be borne by Contractor.

21.   WARRANTY: The Contractor shall guarantee all work and materials used on the Project
      for a period of one (1) year following the date of final acceptance of the completed work


                                               10
       and shall repair, replace or make good any materials or work that fail to function or
       perform or be found defective, without cost to the Owner. Contractor’s warranty shall be
       limited to defects in workmanship within the scope of work to be performed under the
       Contract, and material provided by Contractor and Sub-Contractors engaged by
       Contractor, which arise and become known within one (1) year from the date of
       completion of the Project. All said defects arising after one (1) year are not warranted by
       Contractor. Contractor hereby assigns to Owner all warranties on materials used in the
       Project, as provided by the manufacturer of such materials.

22.   AUDITING RIGHTS: The Owner or its designee shall be entitled to audit all of the
      Contractor's records, and shall be allowed to interview any of the Contractor's employees
      throughout the term of this contract and for a period of five years after final payment, or
      longer if required by law, to the extent necessary to adequately permit evaluation and
      verification of:

      (a)    Contractor compliance with Contract requirements, and
      (b)    Compliance with provisions for pricing Change Orders, invoices or claims
             submitted by the Contractor or any of his payees.

23.   HOLD HARMLESS: If the acts or omissions of Contractor or its employees, agents,
      officers, or sub-contractors, cause injury to person or property, the Contractor shall defend,
      indemnify and save harmless the Owner, its agents, officers, and employees, the EG, its
      agents, officers, and employees, and The City of Jackson, its officials, agents, and
      employees, against all claims, judgments, losses, damages, demands, and payments of any
      kind to persons or property to the extent occasioned from any claim or demand arising
      therefrom.

      signed and taken together, shall constitute one original agreement.

                                              the Road Protection Bond, less any monies expended by the Agency
                                              having jurisdiction, and render to the Contractor an accounting of all
                                              monies so expended.

PART 3 - EXECUTION

3.01           GENERAL

               A.             Implement dust control during all phases of Work. Ensure that visible dust
                              emissions are not created by the work operations. If a visible emission occurs,
                              immediately stop work, notify the Owner, and implement corrective measures.
                              If the corrective measures do not prevent visible emissions for the remainder
                              of the demolition, implement alternative corrective measures.

               B.             Set up at least three sampling locations at the perimeter of the work area.
                              Locate one sampling location at a predominately downwind location and one
                              sampling location at a predominately upwind location. Locate the third
                              sampling location closest to the nearest occupied structure. The actual
                              locations may be adjusted where necessary as directed by the Owner’s
                              representative.

               C.             Requests for a reduction in sampling frequency must be forwarded to the
                              Owner, in writing, with an explanation as to why such a reduction is
                              warranted. Continue to monitor at the specified frequency unless otherwise
                              directed by the Owner.

3.02           AEROSOL MONITORING

               A.             Conduct continuous aerosol monitoring during demolition operations. Record
                              all data.

               B.             At least once each 30 minute period, review the aerosol data from the previous
                              30 minute period. If aerosol levels have exceeded 10 mg/m3, immediately stop
                              operations, notify the Owner, and implement corrective measures.

               C.             Do not resume operations until corrective measures have been implemented
                              and aerosol levels are below 10 mg/m3 for at least ten minutes.

               D.             If the corrective measures do not maintain aerosol levels below the specified
                              level for the remainder of the demolition, implement alternative corrective
                              measures.

                              operations in accordance with OSHA requirements. Collect at least one
                              sample per day at each sampling location.

               B.             Analyze each sample for lead and cadmium in accordance with the standards
                              set forth by OSHA. Compare the results of the laboratory analysis to OSHA
                              criteria.

               C.             If the OSHA criteria is exceeded, immediately stop operations, notify the
                              Owner, and implement corrective measures. Do not resume operations until
                              corrective measures have been implemented and the Owner’s acceptance has
                              been received.

               D.             If the corrective measures do not maintain airborne heavy metal levels below
                              the specified levels for the remainder of the demolition, implement alternative
                              corrective measures.

PART 1 - GENERAL

1.01           SUMMARY

               A.              Section Includes

                               1.              Product substitution procedures and requirements.

1.02           SUBSTITUTIONS AND PRODUCT OPTIONS

               A.              After the start of construction, the proposal of a substitute process, material, or
                               equipment will be considered only for one of the following reasons:

                               1.              The manufacture or production of the specified process, material, or
                                               equipment has been discontinued.

                               2.              The specified material, equipment, or process is not available in
                                               sufficient quantity or quantities to complete the work. Failure to award
                                               subcontracts in sufficient time, and failure to place orders for process,
                                               material, or equipment so as to ensure delivery or execution without
                                               delaying the work, are not sufficient causes for approval of
                                               substitutions.

                               3.              Delays beyond the control of the Contractor such as, but not limited to,
                                               strikes, lockouts, storms, fires or earthquakes that preclude the
                                               procurement and delivery of material or equipment for the Project.

                               4.              Advancement of the delivery date, provided this advances the overall
                                               progress of the work.

                               5.              Reduction in cost, provided that the Owner receives the full benefit of
                                               such cost reduction by a corresponding modification to the contract
                                               price. Fully substantiate such credits given the Owner by making
                                               copies of all proposals, invoices, subcontracts or other documents
                                               related to the cost of the substitution available to the Owner.

                               6.              Improvement in quality or function of the process, material, or
                                               equipment.

               B.              After the start of the construction, the proposed substitute process, material, or
                               equipment shall be subject to the following conditions:

                               1.              Submittal of the proposed substitute process, material, or equipment in
                                               accordance with this Section.

                               2.              Submittal of the request for a substitution in a timely fashion to allow
                                               ample lead time for the Owner’s review, preparation of the shop
                                               drawings and submittals, and delivery, if required, without delaying the
                                               Work.

                               3.              Owner approval of the substitution.

                               4.              Owner approval of process or material substitution does not discharge
                                               the Contractor's responsibilities for performance, methods of
                                               installation and defects.

1.03           CONTRACTOR WARRANTY

               A.              Warrant that every substitution of process, material, or equipment shall meet
                               or exceed the Contract Documents’ performance requirements.

               B.              Owner acceptance of the proposed substitute process, materials, or equipment
                               does not alleviate the Contractor from damages resulting from failure of the
                               substituted process, material, or equipment.

               C.              Bear all costs associated with such failures such as, but not limited to, project
                               delays, fines, and additional effort needed for project completion.

PART 2 – PRODUCTS

2.01           GENERAL

               A.              Acquire materials or equipment that meet or exceed the requirements of the
                               Contract Documents. Whenever a product or material is specified by brand
                               name, model number, or ASTM number, such specifications shall be deemed
                               to be used for the purpose of establishing a standard of quality and facilitating
                               the description of the product or material desired. This procedure is not to be
                               construed as eliminating from competition other products of equal quality by
                               other manufacturers where fully suitable in design. Complete comparative
                               data may be submitted to the Owner for consideration of another product that
                               is believed to be equivalent in every respect to that so specified. Do not order
                               or use substitute products or materials unless approved by the Owner in
                               writing. The Owner will be the sole judge of the merit of the requested
                               substitute product or material.

                                              building down to the foundations and slabs. No subsurface demolition
                                              is required. Building slabs, foundations, and site pavement are to
                                              remain.

1.05           POTENTIAL ASBESTOS HAZARD

               A.              The disturbance or dislocation of asbestos-containing materials may cause
                               asbestos fibers to be released into the building's atmosphere, thereby creating a
                               potential health hazard to workers. Apprise all workers, supervisory
                               personnel, subcontractors and consultants who will be at the job site of the
                               seriousness of the hazard and of proper work procedures, which must be
                               followed.

               B.              Take appropriate continuous measures as necessary to protect workers from
                               the potential hazard of exposure to airborne asbestos. Such measures include
                               the procedures and methods described herein, and compliance with regulations
                               of applicable federal, state and local agencies.

               A.              Work Area Isolation: The purpose of the outside work area air monitoring is
                               to detect faults in the work area isolation such as:

                               1.              Contamination of the building outside of the work area with airborne
                                               asbestos fibers.

                               2.              Failure of filtration or rupture in the negative pressure system.

               B.              If a fault in the work area isolation occurs, immediately cease asbestos
                               abatement activities until the fault is corrected. Do not re-commence work
                               until authorized by the Owner.

               C.              Work Area Air-Monitoring: Monitor airborne fiber counts in the work area.
                               The purpose of this air monitoring is to detect airborne fiber counts to protect
                               the environment from contamination by airborne fibers.

               D.              Conduct air monitoring throughout the course of the project, including
                               personal air samples on Contractor employees. This does not release the

               A.              Glove Bag

                               1.              Use the glove bag technique for removal of pipe and pipe joint
                                               insulation. Provide a glove bag that consists of a specially designed 6
                                               to 12-mil bag fitted with long sleeved gloves, a tool pouch, a small
                                               opening for water, and a small opening for a HEPA vacuum hose. Use
                                               the glove bag for removal of pipe insulation following the "single use"
                                               only technique - one bag to one spot of asbestos. Do not move the bag
                                               along the pipe. The Owner may approve all glove bags proposed for
                                               use, before use on the job.

                               2.              Use two persons to perform glove bag removal. Do not perform
                                               removal with a glove bag on hot pipes because the heat can cause the
                                               bag to melt.

                               3.              Remove ACM inside a glove bag according to the following
                                               procedure:

                                               a. Mix amended water according to the manufacturer's instructions.

                                               b. Don appropriate respiratory protection and protective clothing.

                                               c. Inspect pipe where the work will be performed prior to removal. If
                                                  the insulation is damaged in locations that cannot be handled inside
                                                  the glove bag, wrap these areas in polyethylene and secure with
                                                  duct tape.

                                               d. Place one layer of duct tape around the pipe at each location where
                                                  the ends of the glove bag will be.

                                               e. Slit open the top and sides of the glove bag to accommodate the
                                                  pipe.

                                               f. Place the required tools into the pouch located inside the glove bag.
                                                   This will usually include: bone saw, utility knife, rags, scrub
                                                  brush, wire cutters, tin snips, steel wool pad, and pre-wetted cloth.

                                               g. Place the glove bag around the pipe and seal the plastic edges with
                                                  duct tape.

                                               h. Fill the bag with smoke, using a smoke tube and aspirator bulb, seal
                                                  off the water hose port, and gently squeeze the glove bag from top
                                                  to bottom. If any leaks exist, the smoke will exit through the leaks.
                                                   Repair leaks in the glove bag with duct tape. Retest with smoke as

                                                       necessary. The smoke leak test is recommended, but other methods
                                                       will be considered but shall be submitted to the Owner for approval
                                                       before use.

                                               i. Caution: Some glove bags have a ready-made hose port at midpoint
                                                  or lower on the bag. If this is the case, do not use that port, but
                                                  carefully seal it off with duct tape. Next, cut another port of equal
                                                  size near the top of the bag for the water wand use and insert the
                                                  wand of the garden sprayer through the hose port and tape the
                                                  plastic tightly around the wand.

                                               j. Place one person’s hands into the long sleeved gloves, while the
                                                  second person directs the garden sprayer at the work. Thoroughly
                                                  wet material to be worked on with amended water or penetrating
                                                  encapsulant and allow soaking in. Wet adequately to penetrate and
                                                  soak material through to substrate.

                                               k. A flexible cable saw or bone saw, may be used to cut through the
                                                  asbestos at each end of the section to be removed. A bone saw is a
                                                  serrated, heavy gauge wire with ring-type handles at each end.
                                                  While cutting, keep the asbestos thoroughly soaked with amended
                                                  water.

                                               l. Slit the section of insulation from end to end using a utility knife.
                                                  Make the slit shall along the bottom of the pipe and keep
                                                  continuously wetted.

                                               m. Rinse the tools with water inside the glove bag and place back into
                                                  the pouch.

                                               n. Lit the insulation off the pipe and lower carefully to the bottom of
                                                  the glove bag.

                                               o. Using a brush, wool pad, rags, and water, clean the pipe of
                                                  remaining residue.

                                               p. Clean, re-usable tools may be removed from pouch, depending

                               1.              Initial Fitting: Provide initial fitting of respiratory protection during a
                                               respiratory protection course of training. Fit types of respirator to be
                                               actually worn by each individual. Allow an individual to use only
                                               those respirators for which he/she has been trained and fit.

                               2.              On a Weekly Basis: Check the fit of each worker's respirator by having
                                               irritant smoke blown onto the respirator from a smoke tube.

                  SUMMARY OF ASBESTOS CONTAINING MATERIALS
                                       ACME BUILDING
                                600-626 N. MECHANIC STREET
                                         JACKSON, MI

                                            July 31, 2009


Background
Envirologic Technologies, Inc. (Envirologic) first completed an asbestos survey of the site in May
2000. The survey was a modified AHERA survey intended to evaluate asbestos containing
materials (ACMs) with respect to future building renovations and demolitions that were being
considered at the time. The assessment included sampling and laboratory analysis of suspected
ACMs, an estimation of the quantity of the material, and observations about its condition. A list
of asbestos containing materials and their quantities identified in 2000 has been attached.


AKT Peerless, Hazardous Material Removal
Asbestos abatement activities were completed by AKT Peerless (contracting with Michigan
Environmental Auditors {MEA}) between July 25, 2005 and September 28, 2005. The asbestos
abatement consisted of the abatement of pipe wrap, Mag pipe insulation, mudded pipe joints from
fiberglass lines, woolfelt pipe insulation, boiler and water tank insulation, drop ceiling tiles, floor
tile and associated mastics.

AKT Peerless also completed a cursory site walk through on May 13, 2009. The based on the
results of their supplemental inspection, AKT Peerless indicated the following:

   §   All exterior and some interior windows contain asbestos caulk that must be abated before
       demolition. Window frame assemblies that contain asbestos caulk can be prepped and
       removed for disposal
   §   Roofing ACM is non-friable and does not have to be pre -stripped before demolition;
       however, during demolition, asbestos roofing waste must be segregated from any other
       building building materials scheduled for recycling.
   §   Approximately 500 square feet of asbestos transite paneling and approximately one cubic
       yard of associated contaminated debris was noted on the second floor. This material must
       be abated before demolition.
   §   Suspect asbestos pipe insulation was observed on the ground inside the fenced area on the
       west side of the site. This material must be abated before demolition.
   §   Widespread flaking and peeling paint was present in the str ucture. Absence of climate
       controls in the building likely caused additional flaking and peeling of painted surfaces. It
       was unknown if the paint flakes contain lead; however, lead-based paint does not requiire
       removal for demolition.
   §   Fluorescent light tubes were observed at the site and should be removed before demolition
       activities.


                                                  1
Envirologic Inspection
Envirologic completed a site walkthrough on July 29, 2009. The purpose of the walk through was
to determine remaining asbestos and hazardous material quantities. As a result of the inspection
the following hazardous materials were identified:

   §   Approximately 3,100 square feet of transite board was located along the exterior of the
       subject building.
   §   Approximately 600 square feet of corrugated transite board is located on the eastern wall
       of the western building and one cubic yard of debris containing the corrugated board was
       identified on the second floor.
   §   Approximately 58,500 square feet of window glazing was identified. Specifically, 17,250
       windows with asbestos containing glazing were present throughout the subject building.
       The majority of the windows panes were approximately 10” X 17”. The glazing was
       identified as approximately one inch thick. Many of the window panes have been broken
       and asbestos-containing caulk and glazing is present inside and outside the building
       adjacent to the windows. This asbestos-containing debris must be removed prior to
       demolition activities.
   §   Approximately 120 fluorescent light fixtures were present throughout the site.
   §   Approximately 30 presumed asbestos containing fire doors are present.
   §   Approximately 35,000 square feet of asbestos containing roof material and 10,000 square
       feet of asbestos containing roof flashing material are present.
   §   Roof material debris is located throughout the open areas of the site on the ground surface .
       It is presumed that all roof material debris is asbestos containing and will need to be
       cleaned and disposed of properly.
   §   Approximately 30 linear feet of asbestos containing pipe insulation is present in the fenced
       in court yard near the southwest corner of the property. This is the same material identifed
       by AKT Peerless.
   §   A pile of presumed asbestos containing pipe insulation is present in the basement of the
       building. This is located on the ground level of the western-most building near the
       southwest corner.
   §   Approximately 35 square feet of asbestos containing transite ceiling board is present. This
       material was identified in the original survey as part of suspect material #21.
   §   Approximately 3,500 square feet of asbestos containing trowelled-on cement is present on
       the 2nd and 3rd floors. This is the same material identified in the original survey (Suspect
       material #43)
   §   Approximately 40 linear of asbestos containing tar is located on the smoke stack is
       present. This material was identified in the original survey (suspect material #66). (Note:
       the AKT Peerless report mistakenly refers to this material as “bricks from smokestack in
       the garage”)

These materials need to be properly removed and disposed prior to demolition.
