          PART 3EXECUTION
 
          3.1EXAMINATION
 
          A.Verify suitability of substrate preparation in accordance with approved manufacturer's drawings.
 
          B.Verify correct space requirements in accordance with approved manufacturer's drawings. Verify electrical service is of correct type and at correct location.
 
          C.Do not begin installation until substrates have been properly prepared. If substrate preparation is the responsibility of another installer, notify Architect of unsatisfactory preparation before proceeding.
 
          3.2PREPARATION
 
          A.Clean surfaces thoroughly prior to installation.
 
          B.Prepare surfaces using the methods recommended by the manufacturer for achieving the best result for the substrate under the project conditions.
 
          3.3INSTALLATION
 
          A.Install lift in accordance with approved submittals, manufacturer's instructions, and ASME A18.1 requirements.
 
          B.Lift base shall independently support the weight of the entire unit, and shall be anchored to the pad at all four corners underneath the lift car. No part of the lift base frame shall require anchoring to an adjacent wall for structural support.
 
          3.4FIELD QUALITY CONTROL
 
          A.Perform acceptance tests as required by code and the authority having jurisdiction. Place rated load on platform and operate for several cycles to verify correct installation and operation. No mechanical failures shall occur and no wear that would affect the reliability of the lift shall be detected.
 
          3.5PROTECTION
 
          A.Protect installed products until completion of project.
 
          B.Touch-up, repair or replace damaged products before Substantial Completion.
