01 78 46 ATTIC STOCK

.01 GENERAL REQUIREMENTS
  1. Summary: Section includes basic guidelines to meet the objective to reduce or eliminate Attic Stock for the following reasons:
    1. There is no process in place for verifying that the specified items have been received.
    2. Contractors tend to leave behind construction excess in mechanical rooms, causing a safety hazard.
    3. Items are often lost or forgotten about in remote locations.
    4. These items typically cost much more than direct purchase due to vendor, subcontractor, and contractor markup.
    5. Credits for items not received are small fractions of initial value.
  2. Sustainability Goal: It is the Goal of the Office of Physical Plant to reduce the environmental impact of disposal of building/construction materials.
    1. Materials which remain at the completion of a construction project will be reviewed with the building representative to remain as attic stock for their owners’ usage or transferred to Salvage and Surplus to be sold; rather than being thrown away, minimizing construction waste.
    2. Any pieces and parts which are consumables and unable to be reused will be disposed of by following University standards for their proper disposal.
  3. Attic Stock Requests: Unless specifically requested by the Project Leader, “attic stock” (Additional material and accessories designated in the design specifications, including but not limited to ceiling tile, fire alarm devices, door hardware, etc.) shall not be included in the individual project design specifications. Do not provide a separate attic stock requirement in individual specification sections. All requested attic stock shall be located in this specification section.
    1. Any requests for specific attic stock shall come from Entities (i.e. Classroom Committee, Electronics, Environmental Engineering) during Design Development as described below.
    2. During Design Development an Entity may request the design documents to provide their unit with attic stock items from the contractor at the completion of the project (i.e. alarms, control boards, equipment pieces and parts) If these items are requested, the requester will take ownership of verifying the items are received and providing location to keep and store these items. They are not to be left at the building site.
    3. Attic stock material specifically requested by the Project Leader shall be coordinated through OPP Stores at University Park or the Maintenance Supervisors at Commonwealth Campus locations.  Items not inventoried in this manner will not be accepted, and an appropriate credit shall be provided to the owner.
    4. Questions regarding implementation may be directed to the Project Leader.
  4. Definitions:
    1. Acceptance: The transfer of goods from an outside entity to the owner that has been documented and acknowledged by both parties in writing.
    2. Attic Stock: Additional material and accessories designated in the design specifications, including but not limited to ceiling tile, fire alarm devices, door hardware, etc. Requests come from entities i.e. Classroom Committee, Electronics, Environmental Engineering. 
    3. Design Manual: Guidelines for use by the design team to develop project designs. Currently available on the OPP design and construction site.
    4. Design Specifications: Project Documents issued with the construction documents that detail individual components. Typically developed by the design professional.
    5. Entity: Project participant or end user.
    6. Spare Parts: Parts or equipment components that are included in the purchase of the original equipment, and are provided by the OEM for use by the owner.
  5. Items not considered Attic Stock:
    1. Any item not identified in the design specifications in the Attic Stock section.
      1. Perishable materials i.e. Paint, adhesives.
      2. Project leftovers i.e. pipe, conduit, electrical boxes, floor tile, ceiling tile, carpet.
      3. Casement items i.e. cabinets, lab table tops, office components.
    2. Spare Parts, included by the OEM with installed equipment.
  6. Paint/Perishable Material:
    1. Contract documents shall require the painting Contractor to store all left-over paint until final completion. This will allow repairs to be made after the customer move-in while not jeopardizing the safety within the mechanical spaces.
    2. After Final Completion is over, the project leader will contact the Area Services Supervisor to decide if perishable items are to be stored or sent to Surplus and Salvage.
  7. Mechanical Room storage:
    1. Mechanical spaces located in the facilities are not to be used by building occupants for storage of any kind.
    2. The Area Services Supervisor along with their staff may identify a location within the mechanical space will be marked and used for storage of the accepted attic stock items for the facility.
    3. Properly identifying and marking locations for attic stock is necessary so as not to encroach into working areas of the mechanical room and to comply with safety regulations to allow assured clear distance for working on equipment. These locations will be approved by safety office for such compliance.
  8. Area Maintenance Supervisor/Project Leader Walk Through Process:
    1. Provides a process for accountability and end of project notification for the Area Supervisor.
      1. Entities will be responsible for storage of requested stock.
      2. Area Maintenance Supervisor and Project Leader to decide what materials should stay.
      3. Contractor accountable for leftover items.
      4. No materials shall be trashed.
    2. Material Acceptance and Ownership:
      1. Building materials remaining which would be considered attic stock will be reviewed with the Area Supervisor who will be maintaining the facility; they will take ownership of items to be kept in a documented storage location.
      2. The Area Supervisor will own these items, until such time they deem it necessary to transfer ownership to Salvage and Surplus.
      3. Any items not accepted by the Area Supervisor during the walk-thru review will be removed from the facility by the contractor being retained by them or taken to Salvage and Surplus.

.02  GUIDE SPECIFICATIONS
  1. Design Professional shall carefully review and edit the guideline specifications below, adapting them as needed to achieve application-specific, fully developed specifications for each project.
  2. These shall be edited using the process described in the instructions contained at the beginning of the document.  Proposed modifications shall be reviewed with OPP staff.
  3. Finalized version shall be included in the project contract documents.  Use of other specifications is not acceptable.
