More Information Coming to this Page Soon

We are currently updating this page with more information, so check back soon. In the meantime, here is a little information to get started. 

BRHEMP Conditional Report
After submitting the RFI, a Conditional Report will be issued. The Conditional Report is used to communicate all known information on hazardous materials within the project location. All known results from YVR will be shared in the Conditional Report and must be incorporated into the contractor’s risk assessments and safe work procedures as required. Work cannot start until the Conditional Report has been obtained. RFIs should therefore be submitted early in the planning stage of a project to avoid schedule delays.

BRHEMP Qualifier
To determine if a RFI is required consider the following excerpt: For each project, the following questions should be asked by project managers, contractors, tenants, and YVR Maintenance to determine whether an RFI is required:

  1. Is work being conducted in B pier?
  2. Are mechanical systems involved in the scope of work?
  3. Has a Facility Alteration Permit (FAP) been issued for the work?
  4. Will building materials be disturbed by the work?
    1. Building materials will be disturbed by hot work, demolition, tile removal, etc.
    2. Building materials include paint, ceilings, walls, flooring, etc.
    3. “Disturbing materials” refers to work that requires going beneath the surface of a painted/coated material.

If the answer to ANY of these questions is YES, then an RFI must be submitted to the BRHEMP Administrator.

BRHEMP Request for Information (RFI)
Project managers are expected to submit an RFI where required (see BRHEMP qualifier). The RFI should be issued during the planning stage of the project whenever possible. This allows for the identification of costs and schedule implications associated with BRHM, which can then be incorporated into the project budget and schedule.
