The work of this contract does not involve construction, reconstruction, or major renovation on real property, so this contract is not a public improvement contract under ORS Chapter 279C. Further, the work of this contract does not involve a road, highway, building, structure, or improvement of any type, so this project is not a public work under ORS Chapter 279C.

Accordingly the Port has elected to invoke applicable provisions of ORS Chapter 279C where stated, but otherwise the provisions of ORS Chapter 279C do not apply to the work under this contract except where specifically noted herein. Prequalification is not required for this work. The contractor or a subcontractor need not be licensed for asbestos work under ORS 468A.720.
