Information for General Contractors

When bidding and working on projects that have Green Endurance Flooring specified it is imperative to understand installation requirments, timing, protection and that Green Endurance Flooring results are largely dependent with what the installer is given to work with. Thoroughly read all information below and specifications. If there is something you do not understand, email your questions to info@greenenduranceflooring.com.

Green Endurance Flooring installers have extensive experience working with the needs of general contractors; understand how critical it is to adhere to tight schedules and the proper scheduling of other trades around the Green Endurance Flooring installation.

As soon as a job has been awarded it is important that you the general contractor award the Green Endurance Flooring product to a Green Endurance installer and set up a meeting as stated in the specification SECTION 9700 - SPECIAL FLOORING AND FLOORING TREATMENTS, 1.3 Quality Assurance, E. with Owner, Architect, General Contractor Project Manager/s, General Contractor Superintendent/s, Concrete Producer, Concrete Finisher, including Supervisor, Green Endurance Installer, including Supervisor, Technical representative of liquid applied product manufacturers and anyone else who may affect the concrete work.

Please also read section 1.4 FIELD CONDITIONS of the specification for further General Contractor requirements.

It is important to understand when the Green Endurance Flooring installation will be performed as stated in the specification under 3.3 GREEN ENDURANCE INSTALLATION, A and B so that other trades are correctly scheduled. When having to working around walls and tight areas this "doubles" time spent on a job site by the Green Endurance Flooring installer and the finished product is never as good as it would have been if the work was performed before walls.

Green Endurance Flooring results are largely dependent with what the installer is given to work with. The concrete supplier must understand why they must strictly adhere to mix design specifications. The placement contractor needs to realize that what he is pouring and finishing is not a sub floor but the final flooring surface. There has to be a clear understanding of how to finish the concrete to get the best possible results from the Green Endurance Flooring process. There are other intricacies the Green Endurance Flooring installer understands the GC will not be aware of. For example, if the building is block construction the thickness of the felt between the block and pour needs to be considered. Equipment that runs on electric has large power requirements that need to be planed for. Often, temporary power is insufficient.

GREEN ENDURANCE INSTALLERS ARE INDEPENDENT LICENSEES. INSTALLERS MAY NOT ACT AS AN AGENT OF GREEN ENDURANCE. GREEN ENDURANCE DOES NOT ASSUME ANY LIABILITY TO ANY SUCH PERSON BY VIRTUE OF THE INSTALLER'S ENTRY INTO A CONTRACT FOR OR PERFORMANCE OF WORK.

It is important to remind all trades that the concrete will be used as the finished floor and should be treated accordingly.
