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 1,600 square feet of office space/utility room and lunch room. Two layers of drop ceilings exist in the approximately 1600 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. A frame construction 16' x 23' addition was added on to the northeast side of the steel building, adding approximately 370 square feet of office space. The approximately 370 square foot addition is currently insulated with fiberglass insulation, has had drop ceiling tiles removed, and contains 7 (qty) 2' x 4' fluorescent hanging troffer 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.

4.2. Removal of Ceilings: The contractor shall supply all equipment, labor and materials required to remove and dispose of the two drop ceilings found in the original 1600 square foot office space, which are approximately 40' 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. In addition, the utility room sheet rock ceiling shall be removed. 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 40' x 40' main building are insulated and sheet rocked from the floor to the height of the current drop ceiling. From the level of the current drop ceiling to where the wall and roof of the building meet the bare metal of the exterior wall is exposed. The Contractor shall cover this section of the exterior wall (from above the finished wall to the roof) with a sheet of 1 inch rigid foam insulation. The foam shall be fastened to the metal sheeting so that the spray foam can be applied to the rigid insulation and not directly to the metal exterior wall. The method used to fasten the foam panels to the exterior walls shall not puncture the exterior wall of the building.

Portions of the exterior walls have exposed sheet metal between the current drop ceiling and underside of the roof (photo at 13.5). Any exposed sheet metal (inside the building) on the exterior walls of the building shall be covered with ridged insulation per section 4.3 and then sprayed with ccSPF insulation to totally envelope the walls and obtain an R-Value of at least R21 (excluding the ridged insulation panels).
