|10/13/2022 8:38||Pending||Division 25 -25 50 00– INTEGRATED AUTOMATION FACILITY CONTROLS||The Control system installers are not necessarily submitting or providing Room or Zone controller application data to the records.||The Control system installer shall provide application manuals for any Room or Zone controllers provided. The application manuals shall include a method of matching the application manual to any Room or Zone controllers provided, a method of identifying the actual points used in the controller to the sequence of operation in the application manual, and the sequence of operation of the zone controller. If the factory operation is modified or added to in the field from the factory template the Control system installer shall provide a detailed description of the modification attached to the factory record. These will be included in the submittal process.
|9/26/2022 16:15||Pending||Division 01 Design Guideline||We need the designers and design build team to be involved and initiate the commissioning processes in the initial design with the PM and CM being able to expect in terms of this being part of a project flow table. It needs to be well defined to insure a functional product.||The design build contractor, or designer and contractor shall be responsible for working with the PM/CM to create a work flow table regarding how commissioning of meter systems, HVAC systems and other systems will be proven to be completed, whole and functional with the commissioning agent during the initial design of the project.
|9/26/2022 16:00||Pending||Division 1 Design Guideline||We are not commissioning well and a good part of the issue starts with the designer. They need to be responsible that equipment is functional, accessible for maintenance and repair throughout the construction, commissioning and warranty processes.||"The designers and/or the design build team are required to submit plans to insure that the equipment they install can be commissioned, how it can be commissioned, is accessible for maintenance and replacement and will provide descriptions and plans that include that the equipment can be is installed in a manner that will meet these requirements as a mandatory requirement.
The LEED and/or other models involved in development of the construction or design build project will line up in terms of commissioning, testing and analysis of the installation involved or the warranty period will not commence on those items or operations found to be deficient until they are either resolved functionally or they are resolved through process of mediation with a WSU representative and a permanent record is placed in the asbuilt record de-scribing the terms of the acceptance of deficiency.
The designer of record will be involved throughout this process."

|2021-01-21 10:05:47||Standard 32 93 43 Updated||32 93 43 Part 3.02.B.1.i.||It is appropriate to tunnel underneath roots as well as around them. The majority of root systems are found within the top 24" of soil. A few tree species will have a root or two that grow vertically downward, but these are rare.||At the end of the last sentence, say "or by tunneling around or under roots."|
|2021-01-21 10:02:24||Standard 32 93 43 Updated||32 93 43 Part 3.02.B.1.||If changes are made to 32 00 90 Part 3.01.A, then these additional changes will maintain consistency.||Replace "dripline" with "Critical Root Zone" or "CRZ"|
|2021-01-21 09:57:11||Standard 32 93 43 Updated||32 93 43 Part 3.01.A.2.||The Tree Committee doesn't only evaluate the condition of the trees to be preserved. We evaluate ALL trees on the site prior to construction. Ideally this occurs during design, but that doesn't always happen. Trees that are to be removed need to be valued BEFORE their removal.||At the end of the sentence, replace "that are to be protected" with "in the construction area".|
|2021-01-21 09:53:28||Standard 32 90 00 Updated||32 90 00 Part 3.02.B||If changes are made to 3.01.A, then these additional changes will maintain consistency. A review of the contractor's proposed protective areas would verify that they have determined the CRZs of the existing trees correctly.||At the end of B (or in a new paragraph), add: "Contractor shall provide a site plan showing the Critical Root Zones of each existing tree to be preserved and the location of protective fencing."|
|2021-01-21 09:49:35||Standard 32 90 00 Updated||32 90 00 Part 3.01.E||If changes are made to 3.01.A, then these additional changes will maintain consistency.||Change this section to read: "Protective Fencing: Existing trees and plants whose CRZ is within the construction zone shall have their CRZ be fully enclosed by sturdy, immobile protective fencing that entirely encloses the CRZ of any protected trees.

|2021-01-21 09:41:47||Standard 32 90 00 Updated||32 90 00 Part 3.01.C.1||If the change to 3.01.A.1 is made, then these additional changes should be made for consistency.||Replace "protection zone", "protected areas", and "protected zones" with "CRZ" (or "Critical Root Zone").|
|2021-01-21 09:22:35||Standard 32 90 00 Updated||32 90 00 PQ45 3.01.A.1||Recent research has shown that protecting a tree's root zone within the dripline from construction activities is inadequate, as roots extend far past this point. Also, the "dripline" can vary significantly based on the branching form of the tree -for example, columnar trees have a very narrow profile and the dripline extent would be inadequate to protect the tree. A better method is to protect based on the "Critical Root Zone", which is based on trunk diameter. We maintain "Diameter at Breast Height" (DBH) measurements in our Tree Database on GIS, which is accessible to the public.||At the end of this text (or in a new #2), add the following text: "Existing trees shall have their "Critical Root Zone" (CRZ) protected from any construction disturbance. The CRZ is defined as a circle around the trunk that is one (1) foot in radius for every one (1) inch of trunk diameter measured 4-1/2 feet above grade (Diameter at Breast Height, DBH). In the case of trees with significant importance to the campus as determined by WSU Grounds or Landscape Architecture staff, the CRZ may be increased up to one and one-half (1.5) foot radius for every one (1) inch in DBH. In no case shall the CRZ be less than eight (8) feet.|
|2021-01-08 16:11:46||Standard 09 65 00 Updated||096500 Resilient Flooring- Section B- Passenger Elevator Flooring||The current elevator flooring product specification listed under Section B- Passenger Elevator Flooring does not have an aesthetic appearance after extended use and routine cleanings.||The product looks really unattractive in recent installations (Abelson Hall elevator, Troy Hall, other locations but I can't remember the building names). Recommend selecting a new product or removing the specific product section and keeping WSU approved product only.|
|2021-01-08 16:00:25||Standard 09 30 00 Updated||093000- Ceramic Tile||Ceramic tile for flooring is outdated.||Change title of section to Porcelain & Ceramic Tile. Update flooring section to reference Poreclain tile in place of ceramic tile. Porcelain is the product of choice for floors since it is more dense and has long term durability vs. ceramic and thus less porous than ceramic clays. This makes porcelain harder and more impervious to moisture than ceramic tile and a better choice for flooring. Walls could be ceramic or porcelain could be an option but is more expensive so depending on the project ceramic may make more sense for walls.|

|2020-12-29 12:15:24||Pending||25 50 00 - 3.02 C.||If we could add a new section with "Network Integrity" as the heading.||This would be used to require the controls vendor to run wireshark on a new or remodeled project to show that network traffic from the BAS System is stable. This would include "network bombs" that create huge amounts of traffic on the BAS and clogs the network and slows it down and the vendor would need to clean these up prior to WSU taking ownership. Wireshark should be run prior to the system being put on WSU's campus for at least 6 hours and for at least 6 hours after adding the system to WSU's.|
