For applications using hazardous materials, provide a method of managing the hazard. GSA Facilities has a preference for zero-VOC, non-flammable materials but may consider other applications if the aesthetic appearance, durability, ease of maintenance or refinishing/repair is considered more desirable by the consultant preparing the recommendations, and we present an acceptable method of managing the associated risks. d. Consultant's level of preference for the refinishing/repair application based on performance characteristics. e. Future maintenance requirements. f. Durability - how many years of serviceable life are expected, how many years until maintenance may be required. 2.2 Prepare an on- site mock-up of a maximum of four approved applications, for review/ approval by GSA and the Courts.
