NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
Work on this project includes all labor, materials, and equipment as needed for grinding, shaving, and refinishing of existing granite steps located at building entrance to 350 McAllister Street as required to provide positive slope and drainage on all steps. Corrected stair slopes shall provide for a gradual change in grade between adjacent steps along the long dimension of the step as measured at the stair nosing (maximum transition shall no exceed 1/4" in ten feet). Following slope corrective work, all steps that were shaved shall be bush hammered to match the surrounding historic stone finish. In addition the entire step assembly shall be lightly sand blasted to achieve a uniform appearance between the remedial work and the steps that have a positive slope. If removed during grinding/shaving process, incised detectible warning grooves at stair nosing shall be re-cut to match the pre-existing condition.
