•2.1 Background/Existing Conditions

Building 1002 is TEAD's fitness center and is equipped with a spa, sauna, and steam room.  The steam room is approximately 75 SF and has 2" x 2" tiles on the floor and 4" x 4" tiles on the walls and ceiling.  It also as an attached steam generator room that houses a 15 psi 3 phase 30 amp steam generator, electrical disconnect, water lines and water filters.  The steam room has missing grout and damaged tiles that cannot be cleaned and moisture damage may be present to the internal walls.  The current condition of the steam room doesn't meet the requirements of the health inspector and needs to be rebuilt. It has been shut down by the inspector.


The spa is an approximate 700 gallon commercial, concrete, in-ground tub lined with 4" x 4" and 2" x 2" tile.  The existing tile has been etched and cannot be cleaned to meet the health inspections requirements and needs replaced. The spa currently has a 199,000 BTU propane spa heater, 2 HP/ 2 speed pump, and a 63 gpm sand filter are housed in the spa mechanical room.


The spa room area has 2" x 2" tile installed on the floors. The lower section of the walls are 4" x 4" tile and the upper wall and ceiling is drywall.  The floor tiles around the floor drains are damaged and has missing tiles and needs repaired. There are cracks in the drywall that need repaired along with four single lights above the spa and six florescent lights for the room that are 4 ft. long.


The sauna is approximately 65 SF and has 2" x 2" tiles on the floor.  The tile on the floor and around the floor drains is damaged and the floor needs replaced with new tile.


In each repair/upgrade for this project, the Government shall provide specifications on the existing equipment as a baseline. However, due to the aging nature and design of the systems currently installed, the Contractor's bid shall consider all new codes, industry standards and best practices to advance and upgrade our facilities to best meet the demands of our patrons and stakeholders.
