NFPA 241

Question asked by bbechet on Sep 17, 2017

Has anyone seen NFPA 241 properly bid in accordance with MGL CH 149? Seems it gets pushed onto the GC a lot under Division 1, but if the GC does not perform Fire Alarm or Sprinkler work, then how would they know what to carry in their bid? Wouldn't that be taking work away from the filed sub bidders? Shouldn't the design team determine scope with the local AHJ and Fire Departments prior to going out to bid? It's not means and methods and may be considered a violation of CH 149 if the scope is not quantifiable. Maybe we have to start asking for a defined scope during bidding. If anyone has any commentary or more information feel free to share.  This issue is not going away anytime soon.
