Job # MD161869
Proposal Submitted to: Mr. David J. Reisler
Company: W. L. Gore & Associates Inc.
Address: 100 Airport Road, PO Box 1010, Elkton, MD 21921
Phone: (410) 417-1929
Project Name: Floor Stabilization, Left Bank Facility
Project Location: 505 Blue Ball Rd., Elkton, MD 21921
We hereby submit the following for your acceptance:
Compaction Grouting Services, Inc. (CGS), a women owned DBE certified company, is pleased to submit this proposal for stabilizing a portion of your floor slab at the Left Bank Facility. Our understanding of this project is based on a Subsurface Exploration Report by Geo-Technology Associates, Inc. dated July 8, 2016 and a site visit.
This proposal presents our understanding of the project, a proposed scope of work, and associated fees. We understand that a portion of the slab (about 35’ by 40’) in the northwestern portion of the building is experiencing deflection (adjacent to the slabs construction joint) and cracking distress. The subsurface investigation indicated that the slab was 5.5” to 6” thick in the areas tested and was underlain by 1’ to 1.5’ of existing fill overlying natural soils.
We recommend that all of the stored materials in the slab area to be treated be moved prior to our arrival. Aa floor slab elevation survey will be performed prior to the grouting work. The floor slab will be penetrated utilizing a pneumatic hand held rock drill with a 3” diameter bit. The grouting will begin in the lowest portion of the slab. After the slab has been leveled as much as possible, several additional grout locations will be performed adjacent to the joint that has been defecting. We expect the work to be completed in one work days using our mobile grout plant (10 CY capacity) and high pressure trailer pump. If you consider the 35’ x 40’ area and inject an average thickness of grout of 2.3” it would equate to 10 CY. The only way that we will not complete the work in one day is if more than 10 CY is needed for the stabilization program.
Since we will be inside of the structure, we will not contact MD One-Call for clearance of utilities. We will require that delineation of on-site utilities that may impact our work be provided by others. Specifically, we will require that any under slab utilities in the area of work be identified prior to our work. We will not be responsible for damages to, or repair of, utilities that are not clearly marked in the field at the time of our grouting program unless it is due to our negligent actions.
The following assumptions have been made for the performance of our work:
Set-up/lay down area will be provided in a parking area as close as possible to the work (in front of the bay door) by others.
Any and all permits provided by others.
An on-site water source will be made available (≈ 500 gal/day).
We may clean our equipment and dispose of the grout waste on-site.
Our work will be performed during normal working hours (i.e., Monday through Friday between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.).
Budgetary provisions for time in excess of 40 hours per week weekend and/or night work have not been included.
CGS is an open shop employer and we will compensate our employees as such.
When we pump the grout, some product will likely wind up on the ground and/or pavements. The surface will be cleaned but there may be some residue or staining remaining on the ground surface and/or pavements. No additional cleanup other than power washing and broom sweeping is considered in our pricing.
Our price does not include the following services:
Engineering and/or Inspection & Testing Services.
Costs to provide bonds or additional insurance beyond described in this proposal.
Private utility mark-out.
Restoration of paved or landscaped areas (where applicable).
Additional pricing can be provided for the above items upon request.
We propose to furnish Labor, Equipment, and Materials to complete work in accordance with the project documents and this written proposal. Our lump sum fee based on the scope of work described is:
Mobilization - $1,000
Grout Crew & Materials - $4,800/day
Grout Waste Removal - $750
All material is guaranteed to be as specified. All work to be completed in a workmanlike manner according to standard practices. Any alteration or deviation from the above proposal involving extra costs will be executed only upon written orders, and will become an extra charge over and above the estimate. All agreements contingent upon strikes, accidents or delays beyond our control. Owner to carry fire, tornado and other necessary insurance. Our workers are fully covered by Workmen’s Compensation Insurance.
Note: This proposal may be withdrawn if not accepted within: 30 days
We appreciate this opportunity to be of service to you and look forward to providing assistance to you on this project. If this proposal meets with your approval, kindly sign the enclosed copy and return it to our office as your authorization to proceed. Should you have any questions concerning this proposal or require any further information, please contact us.

Delays not the fault of Contractor, as well as premature mobilization, and additional moving and set-up time caused by working out of sequence at the request of others, will be billed as extra work.
Contractor's work, including material orders, will commence on a mutually acceptable date after receipt and execution of contract documents and written notice to proceed is received.
