3.1        EXAMINATION

      A.   Examine surfaces and adjacent areas where products will be installed and verify that surfaces conform to the
           following requirements for substrate conditions. Do not proceed until unsatisfactory conditions have been
           1.     Verify concrete floors are free of excessive moisture, hydrostatic pressure, alkalinity, scale, and dusting.
           2.     Verify concrete floors are plane to tolerances specified in Section 03312.
           3.     Verify concrete floors are free from oil, grease, dust, construction debris, loose or scaly paints or coatings,
                  incompatible curing or sealing compounds, and other substances that may impair adhesion of adhesive and
                  finish materials.
           4.     Verify temperature of conditioned space has been maintained at 60 - 80 degrees F for period of 7 days prior
                  to installation. Maintain specified temperature range for duration of flooring construction.


      A.   Bond Test: Determine suitability of concrete substrate for receiving resilient flooring with regard to moisture
           content and curing compounds. Conduct bond tests by adhering 3 feet by 3 feet panels of specified floor covering
           with specified adhesive. Test will be considered passed if after several days panels are well bonded, difficult to
           remove, and display no signs of moisture or adhesive degradation.

      B.   Moisture content tests and pH tests will be conducted by Owner’s Construction Testing Laboratory (CTL) at no
           cost to Contractor. Moisture tests will be made to ensure that moisture content in concrete substrate does not
           exceed 5 percent as measured by Calcium Carbide Hygrometer Procedure or 5 pounds/1000 sq. ft./24 hours as
           measured by Rubber Manufacturers Association Quantitative Calcium Chloride Test. Tests shall be taken in
           sufficient number and locations as required to obtain results representative of various areas to be covered by
           resilient flooring. CTL shall report test results to the Wal-Mart Construction Manager.
           1.      Contractor’s Responsibility for Pre-installation Testing by CTL:

      A.   Concrete Substrates: Unless otherwise specified herein, prepare substrate according to ASTM F 710.

      B.   Prepare substrates according to manufacturer's written recommendations and as outlined below                to ensure
           adhesion of resilient products.

      C.   Remove by sanding, grinding, or similar means ridges, bumps, protrusions, and other irregularities. Properly
           prepare expansion joints and fill contraction/construction joints with joint sealant or subfloor filler as specified in
           Part 2 in this Section. Do not seal joints using polyurea or epoxy joint filler specified for concrete slabs in Section
           03312. Fill cracks, holes, and depressions with cementitous based underlayment, which upon cure is sanded
           smooth, to achieve a level, flat, hard surface.

      D.   Provide finish concrete surface smooth by light sanding or grinding.

      E.   Remove paint, oils, waxes, sealers and curing compounds not compatible with adhesive to be used. Avoid
           organic solvents or liquid adhesive removers.

      F.   Prohibit traffic until filler is cured. Thereafter, keep unnecessary traffic in work areas to a minimum.


      A.   Install resilient flooring in accordance with manufacturer's published instructions at locations indicated on Wal-
           Mart Carpet/Tile Plan.

           construction materials over area of resilient flooring.

      C.   Open number of floor material cartons to provide quantity required to cover each area; mix pieces within single
           shade lot to ensure shade variations do not occur within any one area. When working with more than one lot, plan
           lot placement and location to minimize possible shade differences.

      D.   Apply adhesive in accordance with manufacturer’s directions. Follow adhesives open time by spreading only
           enough adhesive to permit installation of floor materials before initial set. Do not spread adhesive for overnight

      E.   Plank Flooring Installation:
           1.    Install plank strips from side-to-side, not front-to-back, of store.
           2.    Install plank strips with random end-joint offset over entire area. Cut planks in random sizes for starter
                 pieces and alternate the size of the starter piece to avoid a repeating joint pattern. The shortest starter piece
                 shall be not less than 12 inches.
           3.    Overall plank flooring layout shall produce a complete random appearance of joint spacing, with end joints
                 staggered a minimum of 6 inches apart.

      F.   Wipe down adhesive bleed through during installation.

           continues through door opening, continue established pattern with no interruption.

      I.   Install transition strips at unprotected or exposed edges where flooring terminates.
           1.      Set metal transition strips butted to adjacent flooring. Anchor into concrete slab with specified fasteners.
                   Drill concrete with Matched Tolerance Drill Bit for Dense Concrete by Hilti.

                        minutes prior to scrubbing. Do not allow the stripper to dry. Re-wet as necessary.
           3.    Pick up cleaning or stripper solution from floor using the auto scrubber with clear water and red pads.
           4.    Thoroughly rinse the floor to remove any residue of cleaning or stripper solution.
           5.    Let floor dry completely prior to application of floor finish.

      D.   Finishing:
           1.     Apply floor finish in accordance with manufacturer's instructions.
