...As noted before, the City of Olympia has now delayed adoption of the new building code until November 1st, so we have some cushion, but fully expect to apply in June as planned.
By the end of this month, KMB Architects will provide us with drawings, based on the February hazmat survey findings, that identify the types, locations, and quantities of hazardous materials that will require abatement prior to Part I work. We can share these plans with abatement contractors to obtain price quotes, and if we choose, proceed with this work by contracting directly with the preferred contractor. The advantage to contracting directly is we would avoid the typical ten percent price markup for completing the abatement work under the Part I construction contract with FORMA. No city building permit is required, only a special permit issued by the state Department of Ecology, which the abatement contractor will obtain. This work can be performed whenever it can be scheduled; it is not weather dependent.
Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
