10/10/2014 9:23 AMPROJECT QUESTION: Related to the question earlier regarding 3Y GROUT, please provide a mix design and specification for this material; it is not included in standard spec. 2461. Also, the answer stated that the compressive strength needs to be 4000 psi before deck panel placement; what?s the anticipated duration for this 3YGROUT to obtain 4000 psi?Johnston, Judith L
10/10/2014 9:20 AMPROJECT QUESTION: Per addendum 1, the contractor shall provide an all Risk - Builders Risk policy and includes language that states - The policy shall cover ensuing loss from any design defect. A builders risk policy is not intended to cover professional liability in the case of construction defect or errors and omission claims so coverage is excluded for any loss associated with design. Based on this, the current language as presented is an uninsurable risk under a Builders Risk Policy. Please clarify if you are requesting professional insurance for any ensuing loss coverage as a result of any design performed by the contractor?Johnston, Judith L

10/10/2014 9:14 AMPROJECT QUESTION: The detail on sheet B139 appears to indicate that the stainless steel plate cast in the deck panels is proud, projects out from the concrete surface.
