The Hudson Valley Community College is seeking contractors for a one-year-term interior and exterior painting contract for its campus in Troy, New York.

Hudson Valley Community College was founded in 1953 as the Hudson Valley Technical Institute, an offshoot of the Veterans Vocational School. The initial objective of the school was to provide hands-on vocational training for veterans returning from war.Today, the school offers over 85 academic degree and certification programs.

Bids are due on July 17.

Scope of Work 

The awarded contractor will clean and coat interior and exterior surfaces throughout the campus, including concrete, concrete masonry units (CMU), gypsum board, stucco, exterior insulation and finish systems (EIFS), and various types of metal. Non-traffic concrete substrate surfaces will be coated with one of two coating options: a three-coat latex system, or a two-coat high-build epoxy system. Pedestrian-traffic concrete substrates will be coated with a slip-resistant latex floor enamel or epoxy-urethane resinous floor system.
