Checking in on the first day

·        When you come to the property for the first time you must sign a copy of the contractor rules and register all of your workmen with the management office.

·        A $250 cash deposit must be provided to the management office.  If any member of your crew violates any contracting rules or leaves trash or debris behind on the property your deposit will be charged and you will not be able to resume work until the deposit is replenished.

·        Each workmen will be given an id which they must wear at all times while in the common areas of the property.

·        Parking on the property is limited.  If spots are available on site you may rent a spot for $5 per day.

·        The loading Zone is to be used only for loading and unloading.  Vehicles parked longer than needed for this purpose may result in a charge against your deposit or towing of the vehicle. 

Working in the unit

·        All work must be done between the hours of 8 am and 5 pm.  All contractors must be out of the building by 5 PM.  We will charge your deposit if you are not out.

·        The management office must be notified if you will be creating excessive noise such as wall demolition or hammer drilling.

·        All construction debris must be removed from the property by the contractor.

·        All common hallways, elevators and loading zone must be kept clean at all times.  If building staff cleans up after your crew we will charge your deposit.

·        Do not dump glue or cement down the drains.

·        The walls in most parts of the apartments are plaster and wire lath, not sheetrock.

·        Metal studs are to be used for framing no wood.

·        Green board or cement board must be used in bathrooms.

·        If you remove the medicine cabinet you must leave access to the pipes behind the wall for the maintenance crew.  This can be achieved by either installing another recessed medicine cabinet or installing an access panel behind the surface mount cabinet.  Mirrors are not to be glued to the wall in place of a recessed cabinet.

 Plumbing

·        When performing plumbing work plan ahead.  Check the shut off valves in the unit to ensure they work.  If you need the tier valve shut off we will need 3 days’ notice.

·        All pressurized lines must be copper.   No plastic lines are to be installed in the building for supply water.

·        Do not stuff bags or other bulky items in the toilet flange.  We often find these items inside of the drain lines after construction causing a clog.  Use tape cover the flange to stop the sewer gasses.

·        If you will be leaving a sink out for any period put a cap on the nipple.  If the line clogs the water from the neighboring unit will back up into the apartment.

·        All gas line installations must be inspected by the super.

·        All water line installations behind the wall must be inspected by the super before the wall is closed.
