       municipality will offer for award the contract to the lowest responsible and eligible bidder within

B.     The municipality reserves the right to waive any informalities in/or to reject any or all Bids if it be in
       the public interest to do so. The City reserve the right to award, or offer for award, separate contracts
       for each building to each of the respective low bidder for each building, and may award a single
       contract combining more than one building if a contractor is the eligible and responsible bidder for
       more than one building.
C.     As used herein, The term "lowest responsible and eligible bidder'' under MGL c. 149 sec. 44A-M shall
       mean bidders: (1) who are “Responsible”, which means demonstrably possessing the skill, ability and

       said course with the first certified payroll report for each employee; (4) who, where the provisions of
       section 8B of chapter 29 apply, shall have been determined to be qualified thereunder; and (5) who

     surety company qualified to do business under the laws of the commonwealth and satisfactory to the
     awarding authority; provided further, that if there is more than one surety company, the surety
     companies shall be jointly and severally liable.

D.   In addition to the contract and bond(s) required to be submitted as specified in the Form for Bid., in
     order to be considered for contract award, the following additional information/documentation must be
     submitted to the City of Holyoke Purchasing Department by mail or hand delivery, by the successful
     bidder within five (5) business days after receipt of a notice of intent to award the contract:

     1.      A Certificate of Insurance demonstrating true occurrence-based general liability insurance
             coverage, with no sunset clause, in the amount of $1,000,000.00 for each occurrence and
             $2,000,000 aggregate, and other insurance as required in the General Conditions Section 00 72
             00 §1.18, and Hazardous Materials Removal (Asbestos) Section 02 82 33 § 1.03 A. 4.

     2.      Evidence that the Bidder or Bidder’s asbestos subcontractor is currently approved/licensed by
             the State of Massachusetts to perform such work (current valid Massachusetts Asbestos
             Contractor License issued by the MADOS). If the asbestos contractor’s license will expire
             within eight (8) weeks or less from the date bids are due, the asbestos contractor must include a
             written letter issued from the Massachusetts Department of Occupational Safety (MADOS)
             stating that there are currently no pending issues that would likely prevent the MASDOS from
             issuing a renewal license and the Contractor must have their license renewed before beginning
             the work, but the work deadlines shall not be delayed regardless. Failure to obtain a license
             renewal within the time required for project start-up and/or completion will be cause for
             termination of the contract.

     3.      Evidence of successful completion of an OSHA 10-hour Construction Industry outreach
             training course for all workers on this project by the demolition contractor and all licensed
             asbestos abatement supervisors and workers of the asbestos subcontractor who will work on
             this project. Evidence to include legible copies of the valid OSHA-10 training certificate or
             card.

     4.      Qualifications, statements, and other information required to determine bidder/contractor
             eligibility, or bidder’s subcontractor eligibility per Section 02 82 33, §1.03.

E.   The City of Holyoke shall also be automatically included as a reference and a poor work history
     reference from any City of Holyoke department or official, or failing to execute a contract by way of
     withdrawal of previous bids, will be cause for rejection of the demolition contractor/bidder and be
     deemed as not responsible.
F.   By submitting a bid, Bidder certifies that they have paid all of their subcontractors in full for
     invoices received for work performed under any and all of bidder’s past and current work/projects
     procured through any governmental agency and/or municipality in the Commonwealth. Bidder
     agrees without objection that any poor references or objectionable reports received by the City
     from any such subcontractors who have not been paid in full, or paid within a reasonable timely
     fashion, will be cause for rejection of the asbestos contractor/bidder and be deemed as not
     responsible.

                                                         INTRODUCTION

The Standard Contract Form Instructions are provided to assist both Contractors and the City of Holyoke with the interpretation and completion
of the Standard Contract Form. These Instructions, including policies, procedures and legal references, are incorporated by reference into the
Standard Contract Form. The Standard Contract Form is the boilerplate contract used by the Commonwealth for commodity and service
Contracts, Grants and any other agreements for which another standard boilerplate is not already prescribed by statute, regulation or policy.

The Standard Contract Form is not a stand alone contract document but is used as the key document that incorporates the various
documents that make up a Contract, which include: (1) the applicable Terms and Conditions, (2) an Invitation for Bids (IFB), other
procurement solicitation document, or non-procurement supporting documentation, (3) the Contractor's response to the IFB or other
solicitation, or scope of services and budget for non-procured Contracts, and (4) any other negotiated terms and conditions and
attachments. The applicable Terms and Conditions is signed only once by the Contractor and filed by the initial contracting Department.
The signed and filed Terms and Conditions will be incorporated by reference and apply to any contract, Grant or other agreement entered
into by the Contractor and any City of Holyoke Department.
The Standard Contract Form Instructions are incorporated by reference into the Standard Contract Form and do not have to be filed with
the completed Contract documents. Contractors are responsible for reviewing the Standard Contract Form and Instructions.

                                                    CONTRACT AMENDMENTS
The Standard Contract Amendment Form may be used to document all amendments to a Contract including exercising an option to renew,
extending the period of performance, changing the scope of performance, changing costs, etc. A Standard Contract Amendment Form
MUST be signed by the City and the Contractor PRIOR to the termination date listed in the Contract (or as amended). City Departments
must attach all relevant documentation to support the amendment.
Terminated Contracts May Not Be Amended. A Contract which is not amended prior to its termination date terminates by operation of
law and can not be amended. A Contractor is not authorized to continue performance after the termination date of a Contract even if the
City has notified the Contractor that it has exercised an option to renew or plans to amend the Contract. Performance made during any
lapse in time between the original Contract termination date and the execution of a new Standard Contract Form can not be
compensated under either the original or the new Contract.

                                                                                                               April 19, 2010
(c) Each payment made by the awarding authority to the general contractor pursuant to subparagraphs (a) and (b) of this
paragraph for the labor performed and the materials furnished by a subcontractor shall be made to the general contractor for the
account of that subcontractor; and the awarding authority shall take reasonable steps to compel the general contractor to make
each such payment to each such subcontractor. If the awarding authority has received a demand for direct payment from a
subcontractor for any amount which has already been included in a payment to the general contractor or which is to be included
in a payment to the general contractor for payment to the subcontractor as provided in subparagraphs (a) and (b), the awarding
authority shall act upon the demand as provided in this section.

(d) If, within seventy days after the subcontractor has substantially completed the subcontract work, the subcontractor has not
received from the general contractor the balance due under the subcontract including any amount due for extra labor and
materials furnished to the general contractor, less any amount retained by the awarding authority as the estimated cost of
completing the incomplete and unsatisfactory items of work, the subcontractor may demand direct payment of that balance from
the awarding authority. The demand shall be by a sworn statement delivered to or sent by certified mail to the awarding authority,
and a copy shall be delivered to or sent by certified mail to the general contractor at the same time. The demand shall contain a
detailed breakdown of the balance due under the subcontract and also a statement of the status of completion of the subcontract
work. Any demand made after substantial completion of the subcontract work shall be valid even if delivered or mailed prior to
the seventieth day after the subcontractor has substantially completed the subcontract work. Within ten days after the
subcontractor has delivered or so mailed the demand to the awarding authority and delivered or so mailed a copy to the general
contractor, the general contractor may reply to the demand. The reply shall be by a sworn statement delivered to or sent by
certified mail to the awarding authority and a copy shall be delivered to or sent by certified mail to the subcontractor at the same
time. The reply shall contain a detailed breakdown of the balance due under the subcontract including any amount due for extra
labor and materials furnished to the general contractor and of the amount due for each claim made by the general contractor
against the subcontractor.

(e) Within fifteen days after receipt of the demand by the awarding authority, but in no event prior to the seventieth day after
substantial completion of the subcontract work, the awarding authority shall make direct payment to the subcontractor of the
balance due under the subcontract including any amount due for extra labor and materials furnished to the general contractor, less
any amount (i) retained by the awarding authority as the estimated cost of completing the incomplete or unsatisfactory items of
work, (ii) specified in any court proceedings barring such payment, or (iii) disputed by the general contractor in the sworn reply;
provided, that the awarding authority shall not deduct from a direct payment any amount as provided in part (iii) if the reply is
not sworn to, or for which the sworn reply does not contain the detailed breakdown required by subparagraph (d). The awarding
authority shall make further direct payments to the subcontractor forthwith after the removal of the basis for deductions from
direct payments made as provided in parts (i) and (ii) of this subparagraph.

(f) The awarding authority shall forthwith deposit the amount deducted from a direct payment as provided in part (iii) of
subparagraph (e) in an interest-bearing joint account in the names of the general contractor and the subcontractor in a bank in
Massachusetts selected by the awarding authority or agreed upon by the general contractor and the subcontractor and shall notify
the general contractor and the subcontractor of the date of the deposit and the bank receiving the deposit. The bank shall pay the
amount in the account, including accrued interest, as provided in an agreement between the general contractor and the
subcontractor or as determined by decree of a court of competent jurisdiction.

(g) All direct payments and all deductions from demands for direct payments deposited in an interest-bearing account or accounts
in a bank pursuant to subparagraph (f) shall be made out of amounts payable to the general contractor at the time of receipt of a
demand for direct payment from a subcontractor and out of amounts which later become payable to the general contractor and in
the order of receipt of such demands from subcontractors. All direct payments shall discharge the obligation of the awarding
authority to the general contractor to the extent of such payment.

(h) The awarding authority shall deduct from payments to a general contractor amounts which, together with the deposits in
interest-bearing accounts pursuant to subparagraph (f), are sufficient to satisfy all unpaid balances of demands for direct payment
received from subcontractors. All such amounts shall be earmarked for such direct payments, and the subcontractors shall have a
right in such deductions prior to any claims against such amounts by creditors of the general contractor.

(i) If the subcontractor does not receive payment as provided in subparagraph (a) or if the general contractor does not submit a periodic
estimate for the value of the labor or materials performed or furnished by the subcontractor and the subcontractor does not receive payment
for same when due less the deductions provided for in subparagraph (a), the subcontractor may demand direct payment by following the
procedure in subparagraph (d) and the general contractor may file a sworn reply as provided in that same subparagraph. A demand made
after the first day of the month following that for which the subcontractor performed or furnished the labor and materials for which the
subcontractor seeks payment shall be valid even if delivered or mailed prior to the time payment was due on a periodic estimate from the
general contractor. Thereafter the awarding authority shall proceed as provided in subparagraph (e), (f), (g) and (h).

1.09   DEFINITIONS

A.     Unless otherwise provided, Contract Time is the period of time, as extended by approved Change
       order, allotted in the Contract Documents for Substantial Completion of the work.

B.     The date of commencement of the work is the date established in the Notice to Proceed from the Owner
       or as stipulated elsewhere in these specifications or in the contract documents. The commencement date
       shall not be postponed by the failure to act by the Contractor or by persons or entities for whom the
       Contractor is responsible.

C.     The term "day" as used in the Contract Documents shall mean calendar day unless otherwise
       specifically defined.

D.     The term “contractor” shall mean either the General Demolition Contractor. All sections and divisions
       of these specifications shall apply to both the asbestos contractor and demolition contractor, except that
       the technical specifications Section 02 82 33 shall apply to the asbestos contractor and the technical
       specifications Sections 02 41 16.13 and 02 81 00 shall apply to the demolition contractor, or both
       sections will apply to the demolition Contractor if the Demolition Contractor is also the asbestos
       contractor.

1.10   PROGRESS AND COMPLETION

A.     Time limits stated in the Contract Documents are of the essence of the Contract. By executing the
       Contract the Contractor confirms that the Contract Time is a reasonable period for performing the
       work.

B.     The Contractor shall proceed expeditiously with adequate forces and shall achieve substantial
       completion within the Contract Time.

1.11   DELAY AND EXTENSIONS OF TIME

A.     The Contractor shall be entitled to an extension of time if the time for completion of the work is
       extended due to the issuance of Change Orders; acts of God; labor disputes; abnormal weather
       conditions; or acts of neglect of the Owner. Except in exceptional circumstances, delays caused by
       suppliers, subcontractors and sub-subcontractors shall be considered to be within the control of the
       Contractor. Should the Contractor require additional time to complete the work, the Contractor shall
       document the reasons therefore and request an extension of time at the time the alleged delay occurs.
       Failure to notify the Owner of any delay as provided in this Section shall preclude the Contractor from
       subsequently claiming any damages due to said delay. Requests for extensions of time shall be
       submitted as a Change Order request to the Owner for Owner's consideration.

             related diseases and health effects, including but not limited to, Avian Flu, Psittacosis,
             histoplasmosis, and West Nile Virus, etc. Treat droppings and nests with caution. Protective
             protective clothing, gloves, eye protection, and respiratory protection, including full-body coveralls,
             must be used when working around bird droppings and nests. Workers must always remove
             protective clothing (except for gloves) first and discard or secure the clothing for disinfection before
             removing their respirators and goggles. Ensure that adequate personal hygiene/washing facilities
             are available at all times. Do not touch a bird or bird waste with bare hands. Proper respiratory
             protection for protecting workers against exposures to airborne materials is recommended. Comply
             with OSHA regulations for respiratory protection and medical evaluation procedures prior to
             donning a respiratory.

1.29   PCB’S IN CAULK AND OTHER BUILDING MATERIALS

       A.    Bidders/Contractors are hereby informed that caulk and joint sealant containing polychlorinated
             biphenyls (PCBs) was used in some buildings and may possibly have been used in buildings
             subject to this project, and the Contractor shall calculate his bid price accordingly to reflect
             compliance with applicable regulations. There is evidence that many buildings constructed or
             renovated from 1950 to 1978 may have PCBs at high levels in the caulk around windows and
             doorframes, between masonry columns and in other masonry building materials. However, please
             note that the 290-296 Chestnut Street building was built circa 1940, and renovation information is
             unknown. Exposure to these PCBs may occur as a result of their release from the caulk into the air,
             dust, surrounding surfaces and soil and through direct contact. PCBs have been demonstrated to
             cause a variety of adverse health effects. PCBs have been shown to cause cancer in animals, as well
             as a number of other health effects in animals, including on the immune system, reproductive
             system, nervous system, and endocrine system. Testing for PCB’s in caulks and other building
             materials is not required and therefore caulkings and sealants on buildings subject to this project
             were not tested. When disturbing or removing caulk and surrounding building material that are
             known to contain PCBs, the Contractor shall manage the disturbance or removal in a way that
             minimizes workers' exposure to the PCBs (e.g., facemasks, gloves, etc.) and prevents the release of
             PCBs into the environment. Should the Contractor have or obtain knowledge that caulk or joint
             sealant actually contains > 50 ppm by proper sampling and laboratory analysis, or have or obtain
             knowledge that materials (e.g. concrete, brick) are coated with PCB-containing caulk at
             concentrations > 50 ppm by proper sampling and laboratory analysis, the Contractor must manage
             such as PCB bulk product waste. Contaminated materials must be treated as PCB remediation
             waste, defined at 40 CFR § 761.3. Contractor shall comply with regulations governing the cleanup
             and disposal of PCB remediation waste are provided at 40 CFR 761.61. No additional
             compensation above the Contractor’s bid price will be provided to comply with this paragraph,
             whether or not knowledge is gained by Contractor sampling and analysis after the contract is
             awarded or during any phase of the project.

PART 3 - EXECUTION

3.0     PREPARATORY OPERATIONS

In accordance with OSHA regulations 29 CFR Sec. 1926.850, perform preparatory operations as follows:

A.      Prior to permitting employees to start demolition operations, an engineering survey shall be
        made, by a competent person employed or subcontracted by the Contractor, of the structure to
        determine the condition of the framing, floors, and walls, and possibility of unplanned collapse of
        any portion of the structure. Any adjacent structure where employees may be exposed shall also
        be similarly checked. The Contractor shall have in writing evidence that such a survey has been
        performed.

B.      When employees are required to work within a structure to be demolished which has been
        damaged by fire, flood, explosion, or other cause, the walls or floor shall be shored or braced.

C.      All electric, gas, water, steam, sewer, telephone, and other service lines shall be shut off, capped,
        or otherwise controlled, outside the building line before demolition work is started. In each case,
        any utility company which is involved shall be notified in advance. Refer to Section 00 72 00, 00
        73 00, and Section 02 81 00 for additional requirements for utilities.

D.      If it is necessary to maintain any power, water or other utilities during demolition, such lines shall
        be temporarily relocated, as necessary, and protected. See section 00 72 00 and section 00 73 00
        for additional requirements.

E.      It shall also be determined by the Contractor if any type of hazardous chemicals, gases,
        explosives, flammable materials, or similarly dangerous substances have been used in any pipes,
        tanks, or other equipment on the property. When the presence of any such substances is apparent
        or suspected, testing and purging shall be performed by the Contractor and the hazard eliminated
        before demolition is started. If it is determined by the Contractor that the building is unsafe for
        removal of these hazardous materials prior to whole building demolition, including other non-
        hazardous items required to be removed and/or salvaged in other sections herein prior to building
        demolition, the Contractor shall include a plan for properly removing and disposing of the
        hazardous materials and non-hazardous building components in conjunction with demolition
        operations. The plan shall be included in the Demolition Plan required per Subsection 1.3 of this
        Section.

F.      Where a hazard exists from fragmentation of glass, such hazards shall be removed.

G.      Where a hazard exists to employees falling through wall openings, the opening shall be protected
        to a height of approximately 42 inches.

H.      When debris is dropped through holes in the floor without the use of chutes, the area onto which
        the material is dropped shall be completely enclosed with barricades not less than 42 inches high
        and not less than 6 feet back from the projected edge of the opening above. Signs, warning of the
        hazard of falling materials, shall be posted at each level. Removal shall not be permitted in this
        lower area until debris handling ceases above.

I.      All floor openings, not used as material drops, shall be covered over with material substantial
        enough to support the weight of any load which may be imposed. Such material shall be properly
        secured to prevent its accidental movement.

J.      Except for the cutting of holes in floors for chutes, holes through which to drop materials,
        preparation of storage space, and similar necessary preparatory work, the demolition of exterior
        walls and floor construction shall begin at the top of the structure and proceed downward. Each
        story of exterior wall and floor construction shall be removed and dropped into the storage space
        before commencing the removal of exterior walls and floors in the story next below.

K.      Employee entrances to multi-story structures being demolished shall be completely protected by
        sidewalk sheds or canopies, or both, providing protection from the face of the building for a
        minimum of 8 feet. All such canopies shall be at least 2 feet wider than the building entrances or
        openings (1 foot wider on each side thereof), and shall be capable of sustaining a load of 150
        pounds per square foot.

3.1     EXISTING FACILITIES TO BE REMOVED / REUSED

        any other existing structural elements and components, etc. shall be removed completely from the site.
        Break up basement slabs to permit drainage. Surrounding sidewalks, curbs, gutters, storm drains, and
        streetlight bases, streetlights, traffic signals lights and poles, and special walkway coverings, signage,
        and dedications shall remain except where otherwise noted.

B.      Demolish structures in a systematic manner from the top of the structure to the ground. Complete
        demolition work above each tier or floor before the supporting members on the lower level are
        disturbed. Demolish concrete and masonry walls in small sections. Remove structural framing
        members and lower to ground by means of derricks, platforms hoists, or other suitable methods.

C.      Locate demolition equipment throughout the structure and remove materials so as to not impose
        excessive loads to supporting walls, floors, or framing.

D.      Masonry walls, or other sections of masonry, shall not be permitted to fall upon the floors of the
        building in such masses as to exceed the safe carrying capacities of the floors.

3.5.3   Removal from City of Holyoke Property

Transport waste materials removed from demolished structures, except waste soil, from City of Holyoke
property for legal disposal.

3.6     REUSE OF SALVAGED ITEMS

See other sections.

3.7     ADDITIONAL ROOFING REQUIREMENTS

3.7.1   Roofing materials have been assumed to contain asbestos. Unless the Contractor determines through
        proper sampling and analysis that roofing materials do not contain regulated amounts of asbestos, all of
        the requirements of this section shall apply.

3.7.2   Where a rotating blade (RB) roof cutter or equipment that similarly damages the roofing material is
        used to remove Category I non-friable asbestos-containing roofing material, the removal of 5,580
        square feet of that material will create 160 square feet of RACM. Therefore, when an RB roof cutter or
        equipment that similarly damages the roofing material is used to remove Category I non-friable
        asbestos-containing roofing material, any project that is 5,580 square feet or greater is subject to the
        NESHAP regulations (40 CFR Part 61 ).

3.7.3   If asbestos-containing roofing is estimated to be less than 1,000 square feet, the roofing removal project
        involving these quantities is not subject to the NESHAP , except that notification is always required for
        demolition. If slicing or other methods that do not involve sanding, grinding, cutting or abrading will be
        used, the NESHAP does not apply, regardless of the area of roofing material to be removed. Any
        method (e.g., axes, hatches or knives, spud bars, pry bars, and shovels) or methods that slice, shear, or
        punch, does not constitute "cutting, sanding, grinding or abrading."

3.7.4   If waste roofing material is not friable or has not become friable as a result of renovation or demolition
        (removal) work (cutting operation), then the NESHAPS Waste Disposal requirements do not apply and
        this waste may be disposed of as non-asbestos waste.

3.7.5   OSHA 1926.1101 no longer regulates asbestos-containing asphalt roof coatings, cements, and mastics.
        However, when disturbing intact pipeline asphaltic wrap or roof flashings, contractors (employers)
        must: (I) ensure that these materials are likely to remain intact during demolition (e.g., nor rendered
        friable, and not sanded, abraded or ground), (2), the material must be lowered to the ground by a crane
        or hoist (not dropped or thrown), and (3) provide a proper training program to all employees
        conducting the work. Demolition or removal of all other asbestos- containing roofing materials (e.g.,
        roofing felts and shingles) must be operated as an OSHA Class II removal project.

3.7.6   In accordance with the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection's Policy Concerning
        Non-Friable Asbestos-Containing Materials (Policy # BWP-96-012, Issued April I, 1996), if all the
        conditions and guidelines of such policy are strictly observed and followed, asphalt based roofing
        products may be disposed of in a landfill permitted by the DEP to accept solid waste and, in accordance
        with the Solid Waste Management Facility Regulations, 310 CMR 19.061(6)(b)3., "Requirements for
        Certain Classes of Asbestos Wastes," the landfill does not have to obtain a permit to accept special
        waste. If the asphalt based roofing products are in a deteriorated state and/or not handled in accordance
        with such policy, or if the DEP has determined that asbestos fibers may be released during handling,

        removal or disposal, then the materials must be disposed of in a landfill that has obtained a special
        waste permit to accept asbestos wastes, in accordance with 310 CMR 19.061, "Special Waste."

3.7.7   Handling and Disposal Guidelines for Asphalt Based Roofing Materials. If roofing materials are to be
        disposed of in Massachusetts, the following shall apply:

        a.       The material must not be broken, sanded, sawed, ground or drilled.
        b.       The material must not be compacted or incinerated.
        c.       The material must be disposed of in a DEP permitted solid waste landfill.
        d.       Any demolition involving these materials must comply with 310 CMR 7.09 (3) and (4) (Dust,
                 Odor, Construction, Demolition).
        e.       If the material is in a deteriorated state prior to commencing demolition/renovation operations,
                 then 310 CMR 7.15 asbestos controls shall be complied with including notification to DEP.

        f.       If the material is in a deteriorated state and/or not handled in accordance with the DEP policy,
                 then the material must be disposed of in a landfill that has obtained a special waste permit to
                 accept asbestos wastes, in accordance with 310 CMR 19.061, "Special Waste."

        g.       Sawing this material into pieces for ease of handling is not considered proper handling. Some
                 alternate cutting method must be used.

        h.       If the material is in a dry, friable, deteriorated state, DEP must be notified and the
                 demolition/renovation operation and disposal of the material shall be conducted according to
                 the requirements of 310 CMR 7.15.

3.8     MISCELLANEOUS

3.8.1   The demolition contractor must ensure that any and all construction activities do not have any impact to
        adjacent structures, adjacent properties, and/or adjacent lawns and walkways, etc. Any damages to
        neighboring properties, sites, or structures will be replaced or repaired by the Contractor up to current
        building code requirements at the Contractor's expense. Any and all additional costs resulting from the
        disturbance of the neighboring sites and/or buildings in any way shall be the responsibility of the Contractor.
        Likely additional costs include, but are not limited to, the removal and proper handling and disposal of all
        debris, building materials, chemicals, hazardous wastes, special wastes, and non-hazardous wastes and any
        affected portions of the adjacent buildings/sites. Proper handling, cleanup, and disposal shall be in
        accordance with all applicable sections of these specifications, and applicable Federal and State regulations.

3.8.2   Demolition operations must run continuously in order to meet the project schedule. Any brick cleaning
        and/or brick preparation operations shall not be deemed as a demolition operation, and therefore any such
        brick cleaning or preparation shall not be allowed without the expressed written approval of the City of
        Holyoke, and if allowed, such activities shall not disrupt continuing site/building demolition operations. All
        specified site work, including but not limited to grading, re-grading, clearing, and hydro-seeding, etc. shall
        be conducted up to the property bounds, including affected ground areas of the neighboring sites.

3.8.3   Sewer and drain utility drawings may be obtained from the appropriate City of Holyoke departments as
        additional information but shall not be relied upon in their entirety. All other utilities, including but not
        limited to gas, water, telephone, electric, etc. must be identified and properly cut and capped as required
        herein these specifications.

3.8.4   While protecting neighboring trees from damage, cut and trim branches hanging over and into the property
        line as necessary to allow for demolition activities so that demolition activities will not damage the trees.

                                          SECTION 02 82 33

                      HAZARDOUS MATERIALS REMOVAL (ASBESTOS)

PART 1 - GENERAL

1.01   DESCRIPTION OF WORK: This section covers the furnishing of all labor, materials, facilities,
       equipment, services, employee training and testing, permits, agreements, waste transport and
       disposal necessary to perform the work required for asbestos abatement, removal, and repair in
       accordance with these specifications, the drawings and notations, EPA, OSHA, DOT, NIOSH,
       Commonwealth of Massachusetts regulations, Requests for Alternative Work Practices
       (attached), and any other applicable federal, state, and local government regulations. Whenever
       there is a conflict or overlap of the above references, the most stringent provisions are applicable.

       A.      The Demolition and/or Asbestos Abatement Contractor shall perform the work and
               provide the services as follows:

               1.      BASE BID (290-296 CHESTNUT STREET): Remove via demolition/asbestos
                       removal procedures the entire building and all building and site materials within
                       the building footprint as asbestos-containing waste materials in accordance with
                       the attached Request for Conditional Approval of Alternative Work Practices.
                       Asphalt pavement parking lot on the side and rear to remain. Clear all vegetation
                       on the site.

               2.      All work shall be coordinated between the contractor and the owner's
                       representative. Contractor shall complete all work within the maximum time
                       period as specified on the Bid Form and/or contract documents. Work areas may
                       not be started simultaneously without authorization by the Owner’s
                       Representative/Engineer.

       B.      The contractor shall perform all work in compliance with all sections of this project
               manual. Where conflict or overlap occur, the most stringent provisions are applicable.

               Non-regular work forces. The primary asbestos abatement contractor or subcontractor as
               approved by the City and as indicated as the official contractor and so named on the
               MADEP asbestos abatement notification form shall not use subcontracted asbestos labor
               individuals or asbestos sub-subcontractor entities on this project. Non-asbestos-related
               work may be subcontracted, unless approved by the Owner’s Representative.

               1.      The contractor must ensure that construction-related activities that impact lead-
                       based paint, and paint containing arsenic, cadmium, and chromium, at the project
                       site are supervised by a competent person and that all demolition work is
                       conducted in compliance with all applicable Federal, State, and local government
                       statutes and regulations, specifically 29 CFR 1926.62 and other applicable OSHA
                       regulations for cadmium and chromium. The contractor shall ensure compliance
                       with applicable OSHA Lead In Construction regulations, 29 CFR Part 1926.62
                       throughout the project, including any required pre-construction testing of painted
                       surfaces.

                                                                  Demolition Specifications, Bid No. 582
                                                         290-296 Chestnut Street, Holyoke, Massachusetts
                                                                                           April 19, 2010


              2.      During the asbestos abatement process, safe work procedures must be
                      implemented by contractors to address worker protection, lead exposure controls,
                      waste stream management, and ambient air quality monitoring. Specifically,
                      contractors will be required to comply with all applicable OSHA regulations
                      including 29 CFR 1926.62, "Lead Exposure in Construction: Interim Final Rule"
                      and 29 CFR 1926.59, "Hazard Communication for the Construction Industry". In
                      addition, pre-disposal testing requirements must be complied with.

              3.      Any debris resulting from asbestos abatement and/or demolition, including but
                      not limited to, lead paint chips stuck to polyethylene barriers, floor surfaces
                      during pre-cleaning, and other waste materials and debris, must be characterized
                      to determine whether they meet the definition of "hazardous waste" (i.e., having
                      lead concentrations greater than or equal to 5.0 mg/l when measured by the
                      Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedure, or "TCLP" 40 CFR 261.24). In
                      asbestos abatement work areas where lead-based paint is present, it is required
                      that debris be appropriately sampled and analyzed by the contractor prior to
                      disposal to ensure the waste stream is appropriately classified. If the total waste
                      stream fails the TCLP test, then waste segregation of highly contaminated
                      portions of the debris could be accomplished and re-testing could be performed
                      to minimize the volume of hazardous waste to be disposed of or recycled.

       C.     The abatement Contractor's scope of work and services to be provided in this contract are
              as follows:

              1.      The Contractor shall perform the safe cleaning, proper removal, repair, and legal
                      disposal of all asbestos-containing materials from the areas listed in the Scope of
                      work tables attached hereto. Additional ACM types (not quantities of same
                      material unless hidden) discovered during the course of abatement shall be
                      removed as directed by the Engineer upon proper change order procedures.
                      Materials are to be removed in their entirety in each area/room/location. The
                      material descriptions and locations subject to the scope of work described on the
                      bid form and Table ASB-1, will prevail in the event drawings do not accurately
                      depict the scope.

1.02   AUTHORITY TO STOP WORK: The Owner’s Engineer has the authority to stop the abatement
       work at any time he determines that conditions are not within the specifications and applicable
       regulations or special alternative work practices. The stoppage of work shall continue until
       conditions have been corrected and corrective steps have been taken to the satisfaction of the
       Owner’s Engineer. Standby time required to resolve violations shall be at the Contractor's
       expense. Additionally, Stop Work orders may be issued for, but shall not be limited to the
       following:

       A.     Excessive airborne fibers inside and/or outside work area.

       B.     Any other situation (outside work area) where the Owner’s Hygienist establishes that the
              following limits have been exceeded:

              Non-Work Area Limits:

                                                                  Demolition Specifications, Bid No. 582
                                                         290-296 Chestnut Street, Holyoke, Massachusetts
                                                                                           April 19, 2010

              0.01 f/cc response level.

              (When response level is reached, stop work and clean-up procedures shall be initiated to
              reduce asbestos levels to below 0.01 f/cc, in non-work areas. This action would happen in
              the event of air contamination from the work area.).

       C.     Failure to comply with any provision of these specifications, applicable regulations, or
              approved or proposed alternative work practices attached hereto.

1.03   QUALIFICATIONS: Approval by Owner is required of each proposed asbestos abatement
       contractor and approval by Owner and/or Design Consultant is required for items listed below,
       and shall be based upon submission by the Contractor of the items listed below within five (5)
       business days, except as elsewhere specified within a different time period, after Contractor’s
       receipt of notice of contract award. Failure to completely submit these items may be cause for
       termination of the contract process:

       A.     The proposed asbestos contracting firm shall be a firm specializing in the removal of
              asbestos and be capable of demonstrating its ability to perform asbestos abatement
              activities by submitting the following prior to or at the pre-demolition conference:

              1.      A list of all prior and current municipal contracts performed during the past
                      twelve (12) months including: the names, addresses, and telephone numbers the
                      owners or clients for whom asbestos removal was performed; date of work, and
                      description of work of each such contract. The City of Holyoke shall also be
                      automatically included as a reference and a poor reference or derogatory remark
                      about the Contractor from any City of Holyoke department or official, or any
                      other official from another municipality within or outside the Commonwealth
                      will be cause for rejection of the asbestos removal contractor. The City shall
                      consider work quality, ability/history of meeting deadlines (start-up and
                      completion), business practices, excessive, repetitive, or questionable change
                      order requests, and overall past and current performance. Any past municipal
                      contracts which have been terminated by a municipality for cause, or contract
                      work which was not completed by the Contractor, shall also be cause for
                      rejection.

              2.      Signed statement under the penalties of perjury that no previous asbestos
                      abatement contract between the Contractor and a municipality has been
                      terminated by a municipality for cause or conflict, and that no contract
                      work/project was left incomplete, within the past three (3) years. If any contract
                      between the Contractor and a municipality has been terminated by a municipality
                      for cause or conflict, or if a contract work/project was left incomplete, within the
                      past three (3) years, such actions shall be cause for rejection of the proposed
                      asbestos contractor.

              3.      Detailed description of all citations, notices, and/or violations received from any
                      and all federal and State regulatory agencies. Excessive or serious transgressions,
                      citations, notices of non-compliance relating to asbestos work will be deemed not
                      responsible or responsive and will be cause for rejection of the asbestos removal
                      subcontractor. In order to be considered responsible and eligible for this project,
                      the Contractor shall not have received more than three (3) State or Federal

                                                       290-296 Chestnut Street, Holyoke, Massachusetts
                                                                                         April 19, 2010

                  regulatory actions deemed serious or warranting monetary fines, including but
                  not limited to citations, fines, notice of non-compliance, and consent agreements,
                  etc. over the past three (3) years (State and/or Federal). Submit a signed
                  statement under the penalties of perjury stating that the Contractor has not
                  received more than three (3) serious regulatory actions or violations
                  accompanying monetary fines, including but not limited to citations, fines, notice
                  of non-compliance, and consent agreements, etc. over the past three (3) years
                  (State and/or Federal) if such statement is true and accurate.

           4.     Asbestos abatement or pollution liability insurance coverage, with specific asbestos
                  liability, with no sunset clause, guaranteed at $1,000,000.00 each occurrence and
                  $2,000,000 aggregate, with a U.S. insurance underwriter. The U.S. insurance
                  underwriter must have an “A” rating or better.

           5.     Evidence of successful completion of a course in construction safety and health
                  approved by the United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration that is
                  at least 10 hours in duration at the time the employee begins work. Evidence includes
                  legible copies of official OSHA training cards or certificates form the training entity.

     B.    The proposed asbestos abatement contractor's workers for this project shall meet the
           following qualifications:

1.16   ASBESTOS WASTE DISPOSAL PROCEDURES:

       A.   It is the responsibility of the Contractor to determine current waste handling,
            transportation, and disposal regulations for the work site and for each waste disposal
            landfill. The Contractor must comply fully with these regulations and all U.S.
            Department of Transportation and EPA requirements, and state and local regulations.

       B.   The Contractor shall document actual disposal of the waste at the designated landfill by
            completing a written Waste Shipment Record or Disposal Certificate, signed by the
            landfill operator, and forwarding the original to the Owner's Engineer. Approval of
            Contractor payment requests may be denied until receipt of such Disposal Certificates.
            The contractor shall use the waste manifests provided by their Waste Transporter but
            must be an approved form as acceptable to the EPA.

       C.   Definition: Wastes are defined as all asbestos-containing or potentially contaminated
            materials or other items which have not been completely cleaned and sealed to the
            satisfaction of the Owner's Engineer and/or Contractor’s Hygienist while inside the work
            area (if they are not cleaned and sealed properly, they cannot leave the work area), and
            must be removed from the job site. Asbestos wastes may include building materials,
            insulation, disposable clothing and protective equipment, plastic sheeting and tape,
            exhaust systems or vacuum filters, Contractor equipment, or other materials designated
            by state or local authorities or the Owner's Engineer, or which have been potentially
            contaminated with asbestos and have not been fully cleaned inside the work area by
            vacuuming followed by thorough washing. Refer to the attached Proposed Alternative
            Work Practices, as mostly the entire building is considered as asbestos waste and must be
            handled and disposed of as asbestos waste, except where specifically noted in the
            alternative work practices.

       D.   Waste Packaging: The Contractor shall count or measure the volume of each filled
            container leaving the site, and maintain a written record of such.

       E.   Waste Labeling: Warning labels, having waterproof print and permanent adhesive, in
            compliance with OSHA, EPA and DOT requirements, shall be affixed to or printed on
            the sides of all waste bags or transfer or transport containers. Warning labels shall be
            conspicuous and legible, and at a minimum contain the following words:


HAZARDOUS MATERIALS REMOVAL (ASBESTOS)                                                     02 82 33 - 18

           Additionally, the label must also warn against breathing dust as specified in OSHA 29
           CFR 1926.1101 (k)(8)(v). The generator’s name and address must also appear on the
           label.

     F.    Wetting of Waste: Except where specified in the Alternative Work Practices, a fine
           water mist shall be used to keep the top layers of waste in containers thoroughly wet at all
           times. When a waste bag is full, it shall be securely sealed with tape or other secure
           fastener.

     G.    Waste Removal Scheduling: All waste containers shall be decontaminated and removed
           from the site before final clean-up is started. The Contractor must pre-schedule and
           obtain the approval of Owner's Engineer for all time periods during which he desires to
           remove waste from the facility. Once a truckload of waste containers has accumulated,
           the Contractor shall arrange for transportation to the disposal site, or to a pre-designated
           and approved off-site temporary holding site. Waste shall not be stored in the worker or
           waste decontamination facilities.

     H.    Waste Transportation and Disposal Regulations: It is the responsibility of the Contractor
           to determine and ensure that he is complying with: 1) the current waste handling
           regulations applicable to each work site; and 2) the current regulations for transporting
           and disposing waste at each ultimate disposal landfill. He must comply fully with these
           regulations; and with all U.S. Department of Transportation, State, and EPA
           requirements.

           The original completed waste manifest forms shall be sent to the Owner's Engineer after
           disposal is completed and all required data and signatures have been obtained.

           Asbestos Hauling: Package asbestos waste in accordance with all pertinent
           Commonwealth of Massachusetts, DOT, and EPA regulations.

               1.      The costs for waste packaging, transportation, and approved landfill disposal
                       (plus all related recordkeeping) shall be included in Contractor's prices.

               2.      The Contractor shall package, label, and remove all asbestos waste as specified in
                       previous Sections and in accordance with any attached alternative work
                       procedures. Packaging shall be accomplished in a manner that minimizes waste
                       volume, but ensures waste containers shall not tear or break.

               3.      The Contractors Competent Person (Asbestos Supervisor) must observe removal
                       of all waste containers from each work area and the site to verify their condition
                       and certify the total volume of waste material (to the nearest cubic yard). He
                       shall then insert the quantity on the Disposal Form/Waste Manifest, and give the
                       original of these forms to the Contractor for transport to the landfill operator for
                       signature.

               4.      The Contractor shall provide legal transportation of asbestos wastes to the
                       ultimate disposal landfill. The Contractor shall verify actual delivery, receipt,
                       and disposal of each load of waste at the designated landfill by completing a
                       Disposal Certificate, obtaining the landfill operator's signature, and forwarding a
                       copy to the Owner's Engineer.

               5.      Waste may be transported to and temporarily stored at a pre-approved off-site
                       storage area owned by the Contractor, but must ultimately be disposed of at the
                       specified landfill prior to payment.

               6.      Waste must be disposed at a site conforming to 40 CFR 61.156.

               7.      Empty waste trailers received and placed on the site must be inspected by the
                       Contractor prior to acceptance. If the waste trailer is found to be contaminated,
                       the trailer must be rejected by the contractor and a clean trailer obtained. All
                       waste generated from the sites subject to this contract shall be transported to the
                       ultimate landfill within 30 days and receipts issued to the generator and building
                       owner in compliance with 40 CFR Part 61 NESHAPS regulations.

1.17   PRE-WORK SUBMITTALS: Receipt by Owner and/or Design Consultant is required of the
       Contractor’s pre-work submittals for this project, and such pre-work submittals shall be submitted
       by the Contractor within five (5) business days, except as elsewhere specified within a different
       time period, after Contractor’s receipt of notice of contract award. Failure to completely submit
       these items, and/or failure to submit items sufficient to obtain acceptance for consistency with
       these specifications, may be cause for termination of the contract process. The review and
       acceptance of asbestos submittals by the City of Holyoke or their representative will not constitute
       “approval” of said plans. The Contractor shall furnish the following items clearly identified as
       stated. The Designer/Engineer may waive some of these submittal items depending on the size
       and complexity of the project:

       A.      Three copies shall be submitted to the Engineer's Project Manager for review and

PART 3 - EXECUTION

3.01   ASBESTOS REMOVAL UNDER ALTERNATIVE WORK PROCEDURES:

       A.      Comply with the attached proposed alternative work practices submitted to and approved
               by MassDEP.

3.02   ASBESTOS REMOVAL USING MINI-CONTAINMENT (TENT) PROCEDURES:

       In addition to subsection 3.01 above, Prior to building demolition, mini-containment (mini-
       enclosure or tent) procedures shall be utilized when removing asbestos-containing caulking
       and/or glazing on windows, doors, window frames, door frames, window sashes, and building
       masonry, or other materials in areas where it is impractical or unfeasible to place an entire room
       under general (or full) containment. When sealing (taping) poly sheeting to existing ACM
       materials (or if ACM-covered piping will pass through the poly walls) to establish the isolated
       work area, all ACM areas must first be protected to prevent disturbance during tear down or
       dismantling. This must be accomplished by either installing a metal or other material around the
       materials prior to masking and sealing operations. This procedure may only be performed after
       initial masking and sealing operations, and critical barriers are sealed.

       A.      Removal:

               1.      Negative pressure enclosure procedures shall be limited to those materials and/or
                       areas specified in the attached Scope of Work tables (Table ASB-1) as indicated
                       by “MC.” No disturbance of ACM shall occur during construction of the mini-
                       containment/negative pressure enclosure.

               2.      Mini-containment enclosure procedures shall be accomplished in a constructed or
                       commercially available plastic "tent-enclosure". All surfaces not being abated
                       within the immediate removal area shall be plasticized and sealed, thus forming
                       an enclosure with poly sheeting barriers, thus separating the work removal area
                       from the rest of the room. The mini-containment/negative pressure enclosure
                       shall be of two (2) layers of 6-mil Polyethylene Plastic Sheeting (poly) supported
                       by 2' x 4' studs, with seams heat-sealed, or double-folded, stapled and taped
                       airtight and then taped or fastened flush with the adjacent negative pressure
                       enclosure wall. This is a single use barrier for each isolated work area 9(e.g.,
                       window or door opening) that shall not be reused once dismantled or collapsed.

               3.      Asbestos laborers involved in the negative pressure enclosure procedure shall
                       wear two (2) disposable suits, including gloves, hood and footwear, and
                       appropriate respiratory equipment. All street clothes shall be removed and stored
                       in a clean room within the work site. The double layer personal protective
                       equipment shall be used for installation of the negative pressure enclosure and
                       throughout the procedure if a decontamination unit with a shower is not
                       contiguous to the work area. If a decontamination unit (with shower and clean
                       room) is contiguous to the work area, only one layer of disposable personal
                       protective equipment shall be required; in this case, prior to exiting the negative

                                                                                     April 19, 2010

                 pressure enclosure, the worker shall HEPA vacuum and wet clean the disposable
                 suit.

           4.    The mini-containment/negative pressure enclosure shall be attached to the
                 surface to produce an airtight seal except for an appropriate section to allow for
                 make-up air into the negative pressure enclosure.

           5.    A HEPA ventilation unit shall be used to continuously exhaust the enclosed area.
                 The hose shall be attached securely and airtight through the negative pressure
                 enclosure wall at the most remote location possible from the ACM to be
                 disturbed. A minimum of four (4) to six (6) volume changes per hour is required.

           6.    Removal of ACM shall be by wet methods. Dry removal of asbestos-containing
                 materials is prohibited.

           7.    Upon completion of abatement, and prior to negative pressure enclosure collapse,
                 the enclosed surfaces shall:

                 a.      be wet cleaned using rags, mops or sponges; and

                 b.      be permitted sufficient time to dry, prior to HEPA vacuuming all
                         surfaces; and

                 c.      Poly walls, poly floors, and surfaces and components from which
                         asbestos was actually removed from shall be lightly encapsulated to
                         lockdown residual asbestos.

           8.    The bagged waste shall be wet cleaned or HEPA vacuumed and then transferred
                 outside the negative pressure enclosure, double bagged, and appropriately
                 handled prior to disposal.

           9.    The outer disposable suit shall be removed and remain in the negative pressure
                 enclosure upon exiting. Following negative pressure enclosure disposal and work
                 site cleanup the workers shall immediately proceed to a shower at the work site.
                 The inner disposable suit and respirator shall be removed in the shower after
                 appropriate wetting. The disposable clothing shall be disposed of as asbestos-
                 containing waste material. The workers shall then fully and vigorously shower
                 with supplied liquid bath soap, shampoo, and clean, dry towels.

           10.   The HEPA vacuum shall be used to filter a minimum of six (6) volume changes
                 through the negative pressure enclosure after completion of abatement but prior
                 to collapse of the negative pressure enclosure.

           11.   The negative pressure enclosure shall be collapsed inward, enclosing the
                 contaminated clothing. This contaminated material shall be disposed of in
                 another poly bag. The HEPA vacuum shall be decontaminated and sealed.

* All layers, includes caulking between window and door frames and masonry (on masonry) and glazes
in/on wood window sashes.

Bidders/Contractors are hereby informed that caulk and joint sealant containing polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs)
was used in some buildings and may possibly have been used in buildings subject to this project, and the Contractor
shall calculate his bid price accordingly to reflect compliance with applicable regulations. There is evidence that many
buildings constructed or renovated from 1950 to 1978 may have PCBs at high levels in the caulk around windows
and doorframes, between masonry columns and in other masonry building materials. However, please note that the
290-296 Chestnut Street building was built circa 1940, and renovation information is unknown. Exposure to these
PCBs may occur as a result of their release from the caulk into the air, dust, surrounding surfaces and soil and through
direct contact. PCBs have been demonstrated to cause a variety of adverse health effects. PCBs have been shown to
cause cancer in animals, as well as a number of other health effects in animals, including on the immune system,
reproductive system, nervous system, and endocrine system. Testing for PCB’s in caulks and other building materials
is not required and therefore caulkings and sealants on buildings subject to this project were not tested. When
disturbing or removing caulk and surrounding building material that are known to contain PCBs, the Contractor shall
manage the disturbance or removal in a way that minimizes workers' exposure to the PCBs (e.g., facemasks, gloves,
etc.) and prevents the release of PCBs into the environment. Should the Contractor have or obtain knowledge that
caulk or joint sealant actually contains > 50 ppm by proper sampling and laboratory analysis, or have or obtain
knowledge that materials (e.g. concrete, brick) are coated with PCB-containing caulk at concentrations > 50 ppm by
proper sampling and laboratory analysis, the Contractor must manage such as PCB bulk product waste. Contaminated
materials must be treated as PCB remediation waste, defined at 40 CFR § 761.3. Contractor shall comply with
regulations governing the cleanup and disposal of PCB remediation waste are provided at 40 CFR 761.61. No
additional compensation above the Contractor’s bid price will be provided to comply with this paragraph, whether or
not knowledge is gained by Contractor sampling and analysis after the contract is awarded or during any phase of the
project.

3.03     MONITORING, TESTING AND INSPECTION:

         A.       The performance and execution of the work may be periodically or continuously
                  monitored by the Engineer (owner’s Engineer) in addition to the inspection and
                  monitoring requirements of the Contractor’s Hygienist. The monitoring work may be
                  performed both inside the work area and the surroundings to ensure full compliance with
                  these specifications and all applicable regulations. The Contractor and Contractor’s
                  Hygienist shall provide full cooperation and support to the Engineer throughout the work.

       D.   Air sampling materials and equipment requirements are as follows:

            1.      Sampling for analysis by phase contrast microscopy shall employ cellulose ester
                    collection filters with 0.8 micron pore size or less. Cassettes shall be loaded with
                    filters under clean laboratory conditions. A 5.0 micron pore-size cellulose ester
                    backing filter shall be placed behind the collecting filter, followed by the
                    cellulose support pad and the cassette base. A metal cowl or an electrically
                    conductive cowl shall be used in conjunction with the sampling train.

            2.      The filter assembly shall be upstream of all other components in the sampling
                    train. An airflow measuring device (when used) shall be downstream of the filter
                    and the pump assembly, or integral with the pump assembly.

            3.      Sampling pumps shall supply constant flow.

            4.      An air flow measuring/metering device shall be used, and shall be high quality
                    rotameter, mass flow, dry gas meter or critical orifice. Measuring devices shall
                    have a range of at least 1.5 times the desired flow rate and be readable to at least

                                                                    Demolition Specifications, Bid No. 582
                                                           290-296 Chestnut Street, Holyoke, Massachusetts
                                                                                             April 19, 2010

                        +5% of the desired flow rate. They shall be calibrated against standards of higher
                        accuracy before and after sampling and must be calibrated within the last six (6)
                        months minimum. The calibrations shall be recorded.

        E.      Numbers and frequencies of personal air sampling shall be as required by OSHA
                regulations but not less than one (1) sample per eight (8) hour work shift, and one (1)
                sample per 30 minutes of the period where the highest exposures are expected, during
                times of asbestos removal work. Supervisor or competent person collecting such samples
                shall document the reasons for selecting the time period for collection of the 30-minute
                short-term excursion samples.

        F.      Results of sample analysis shall be provided to the Engineer within forty-eight (48) hours
                of collection at a minimum, and in accordance with 29 CFR 1926.1101(f)(2)(i), which
                stipulates that results must be completed in time to comply with requirements which are
                triggered by exposure data or the lack of a "negative exposure assessment," and to
                provide information necessary to assure that all control systems planned are appropriate
                for that operation and will work properly.

        G.      Personal sampling shall be performed pursuant to NIOSH Method 7400 (revised).


3.05    AIR MONITORING/INSPECTIONS BY ENGINEER:

        A.      The Engineer, at his discretion, may periodically conduct air monitoring and inspections
                for the duration of the project. Clearance Monitoring in accordance with applicable
                MassDOS regulations 453 CMR 6.00 will be performed by the Owner’s
                Engineer/Hygienist (Licensed Project Monitor) of each isolated window/door work area
                enclosure, where applicable.

        B.      Personal air monitoring as required by OSHA is the responsibility of the Contractor’s
                Hygienist and is not covered in this section.
