Lesson Learned/Best Practice
Better define within the project documents what the state requires for documentation & recertification of existing systems in spaces with only finish upgrades. THHS inspector required several systems which had not been touched to be recertified.
Suggested Actions for Future Projects
Confirmation with the state, stating precisely which state requirements will be applicable to the project, including recertification of existing systems not within project scope, if applicable. Include clarification in bid documents. Discuss with state during Feasibility Conference. Verify with local AHJs as well.
