The payment items provided for on the bidding schedule embody the work; but the work descriptions provided below do not specifically discuss all incidental work and materials required to complete the contract work.


3.1. Description: The Ranger Office Building is a one level cedar wood covered steel building that was converted into offices in the 1990's. The framework consists of red metal beams with steel sheeting attached to them. At the time of the conversion 2" x 6" studs were added with insulated walls creating approximately 2,400 square feet of office space/utility rooms and lunch room. Two layers of drop ceilings exist in the approximately 2,400 square foot original office space with fluorescent 2' x 4' light fixtures existing in the present drop ceiling and incandescent light fixtures still present in the original drop ceiling. The drop ceiling contains 28 (qty) 2' x 4' fluorescent hanging troffer light fixtures of which 8 have been recently upgraded to LED light fixtures.


4.1. Protective Coverings: The contractor shall cover all walls and floors with plastic or tarps to protect the walls and floors from damage during the removal of the ceilings and during spraying of the foam insulation. It is the contractors responsibility to remove any materials accidently sprayed on the walls or floors.

Removal of Drop Ceilings: The contractor shall supply all equipment, labor and materials required to remove and dispose of the two drop ceilings found in the original 2,400 square foot office space, which are approximately 60' by 40' each and consist of tile, grid, florescent and incandescent fixtures and light bulbs, and a 6" layer of fiberglass insulation above the second ceiling. All materials shall be disposed of in accordance with all required local and State of Minnesota disposal regulations.

4.3. Rigid Insulation: The exterior walls of the building are insulated and sheet rocked from the floor to the height of the current drop ceiling.

The interior of all exterior exposed walls within the offices, above the drop ceiling, shall sprayed with ccSPF insulation to totally envelope the walls and obtain an R-Value of at least R21 (excluding the ridged insulation panels). No gaps shall remain unsprayed between the insulated outer wall and the ceiling.
