Project Description:

Greenwood Townhouses 900 Greenwood Avenue, Monroe, Mi 48162 – Implementation of the 2015, 2016 Capital Fund Program for first floor interior kitchen and floor finish renovations of the 2, 3, and 4 bedroom apartments. In general the scope of work includes: Upper and lower kitchen cabinet, countertop, and plumbing fixture removal and replacement. Removal and replacement of all underlayment (assumed to be two layers of underlayment and VCT tile flooring existing) to the sub-floor, installation of a new underlayment material and plank “wood look” vinyl flooring throughout the first floor of each apartment. The apartments are to be occupied throughout the construction. The contractor shall be responsible for providing temporary relocation and storage of the occupant’s belongings in an on-site secured container throughout the construction of each unit. Work shall be completed in a fashion that minimizes the time of disruption to the tenants. Work shall include all necessary Mechanical, Plumbing, and Electrical work for a complete installation using the dedicated allowances as outlined in the bidding documents. The goal is to ultimately complete renovations of all 111 units within the complex. However, with limited funds it is anticipated that only a portion of the work can be accomplished with these dedicated funds. As additional funds are secured the remaining scope of work would be completed. This, however, may occur over a multi-year process. Work was recently completed in a model unit that will be viewed during the pre-bid walk-through. This unit shall serve as the Owner’s base level of performance.
