Background Discussion

This Change Order allows for additional beach sand to be added to the construction volume of sand.  Additional sand has been determined to be necessary to fill the entire project beach length to the final "design template" permitted by the State.  The sand quantity estimated originally was based on surveys taken in July 2013.  The Contractor is required to re-survey upon issuance of a Notice to Proceed to account for additional beach erosion. 

In this instance it was determined that additional erosion had occurred, requiring additional sand to be placed.  The additional volume of sand is placed at the unit rates specified in the Contract and is necessary to fill in the permitted width and depth of new sand on the beach.
