Clara – Please see my responses below:
1. Is the subfloor, beam, joists and all fasteners associated with the construction of the flooring system included in the $108 for the reconstruction?
2. Is the first 3 feet of elevation measured from the top of the old concrete slab as Mr. Todd Mann stated Dec. 10, 2018 at our meeting in the Mead office, or is it measured from ground level upwards 3 feet? When I say ground level I also mean "average grade" because my surveyor stated the ground changes less than 0.1 foot.
A: The Program is going to use an elevation certificate, such as attached, to determine which elevation height to use in the Program Elevation Allowance Table in an effort to establish the Elevation CAP. The calculation is based on lowest adjacent grade as noted in the FEMA Form 086-0-33 (7/15), or in your certificate of elevation dated 02.08.17, the elevation of natural grade at 40.7', up to the base flood elevation plus two feet totaling 46.2'. The difference of 5 ½ feet would establish an Elevation CAP in the 6.0' height category as noted in the Program Elevation Allowance Table based on the eligible square footage.
3. Our designer is using grade beams. Will the grade beam costs be eligible for reimbursement?
A: Yes, under the separate award for elevation. Under Solution 2 the Program is not dictating an Applicant's design. The Program is asking that the Applicant's licensed contractor advise in writing the costs for elevation, so that the Program can provide a separate award for elevation funding. These costs should represent any materials/labor from the top of the pier or pile down including materials/labor installed below grade that have been included on the construction drawings submitted to the local building official for a new construction building permit.
I hope this helps!
