- Scope of Work-Committee reviewed the Scope of Work for lower-level modifications to support an emergency shelter that Henry drafted. Some decisions were made to better define items of work which Ann will add to the document. Herb provided two additional alternatives for ceiling: Alternate 4: Floating Drywall-drywall would be hung to cover the steel beams and follow the pitch of the torsion bars up to the top of windows on either side, then taped and mudded. the ceiling would cover all wood and steel beams and ducts but leave windows open for light and ventilation. (Poulin Estimate: $8,519.07) Alternate 5: Fully Exposed- wood and steel beams would be cleaned but not media blasted, then prepped and painted black. Ductwork would be reconfigured, cleaned and painted black. members discussed the advantages and disadvantages of each alternate. It was agreed that wooden beams would have to be cleaned to prevent bark and dust dropping.Glenn moved that the committee adopt the option of leaving the ceiling fully exposed, blasting wood beams, then sealing wood. Steel would be prepped and painted, ductwork reconfigured and painted. Ray seconded. Jeremy and Herb in favor. Mike opposed.
- Next Steps: Action items to be presented at next meeting: estimates from other media blasters (Herb), estimates from electricians Craig Peterson, Mike Juris( Ann) and Matt Voighty (Jeremy) for demo and new wiring. Estimate from Don Marshall on sealing wood, painting beams and ducts (Ann)
