«Newsletter 2016-4 January 29, 2016 PREVAILING WAGE REPEAL HOTLY DEBATED ON HOUSE FLOOR The House of Delegates Wednesday passed H.B. 4005, the ...»
Committee members also received an update on Prevailing Wage legislation, as well as the issue on the change order process that was raised by Legislative Auditor’s office. The auditor found that approving change orders after work had begun was not allowed under current state code. Because of the ruling by the Legislative Auditor’s office, all construction change orders would have had to be approved and fully signed before any work was done. The CAWV worked with West Virginia Purchasing Division, the Legislative Auditor’s office, Jason Pizatella, Cabinet Secretary of the Department of Administration, the Attorney General’s Office and the West Virginia Secretary of State’s office to get an emergency rule passed that allowed the change order process for construction to continue as it had before the audit. The CAWV is now working with the West Virginia Legislature on a long term solution to the issue. Look for updates in future issues of the CAWV Building Bulletin.
Committee members also discussed some recent issues with public entities using the Design / Build delivery method without going through the proper channels or understanding how the process works. This issue will be followed closely and discussed at future Joint Architect Committee Meetings. Members discussed development of a task force to work with the Design / Build Board on the issue to improve enforcement of the design / build rules.

Neither snow, ice, nor arctic wind will keep builders from building. This is a year-round industry that requires adaptations on the part of builders to accommodate the changing seasons. In most parts of the country, heating becomes a major issue for construction projects in the winter and portable heaters are generally the most viable solution. However, there are obvious safety concerns when using portable heaters and there is a potential for harm to the structure being built and the workers if they are not properly used. To avoid potential for heater-related
mishaps, remind workers of these safety precautions:
Have heaters inspected, tested and repaired if necessary by a qualified technician prior to heating season. Be sure to keep heater on a firm level surface, to keep it from tipping over.
Do not use heaters in an area where they may easily ignite combustible materials (e.g., paint, paper or plywood). Do not place heater directly on plywood floor. Position it on a 4-foot by 4-foot square of fire-resistant drywall or cement board.
Protect all hoses from physical damage and exposure to excessive heat. Avoid running hoses through all doorways, as a closed door will pinch the hose, thereby causing potential damage to the hose and improper gas flow to the heater. If a hose runs through a window, make sure to put a block on the sill to prevent the window from closing on and pinching the hose.
Do not operate heater in an unventilated area. Always crack a few windows (on the second floor, or where possible) to evacuate excess accumulation of fumes and heat.
Do not use site heaters in a manner for which they are not intended (e.g., cooking or warming/drying clothes).
