  • The general contractor shall provide a dry concrete slab within the standards for moisture content. The flooring contractor shall verify slab conditions prior to the commencement of any installation to ensure compliance with flooring manufacturer specifications.
  • Permanent heat, light and ventilation shall be installed and operating before, during and after installation, controlling a temperature range compatible with expected environmental conditions when the facility is occupied.
