The City of New Rochelle is soliciting bids for rehabilitation and coating of the New Rochelle Train Station located in New Rochelle, New York.

Scope of Work 

The selected contractor will be responsible for performing rehabilitation and coating for the train depot’s brick and wood siding, trim and structural roof supports, metal columns, roof underside and other miscellaneous structures.

The project includes a total of 4,000 square feet of preparation and painting exterior brick siding, 200 square feet of preparation and coating exterior wood siding, 40 items of coating exterior trim and structural roof supports, 3,000 square feet of coating the roof underside, as well as preparation and coating of the wood fascia, trim, exterior wood siding and exterior metal columns.

When preparing exterior surfaces, the contractor is to remove existing primers and re-prime substrates with compatible primers, or apply a tie coat as required to produce a compatible surface. All removals will be performed by pressure washing, hand scraping or an approved equivalent. For masonry substrates, Hand Tool Cleaning (SSPC-SP 2) or Power Tool Cleaning (SSPC-SP 3) is required to remove efflorescence and chalk. For wood substrates, knots should be scraped and cleaned using hand scraping, pressure washing or an approved equivalent, and will require a knot sealant application prior to topcoat application.

Exterior standing and running trim, frames and jambs will be prepared to Premium Architectural Woodwork Standards. The gable end supports will require wood preservation with a water-repellent preservative treatment complying with AWPA N1 (Dip, Spray, Flood, or Vacuum-Pressure Treatment Standards). For surfaces requiring shop priming, all wood should comply with Architectural Woodworking Standards for sanding, filling of countersunk fasteners, sealing concealed surfaces, and similar preparations for finishing exterior architectural woodworking. Contactors will then apply one coat of sealer or primer, compatible with finish coatings, to concealed surfaces. Two coats will be installed on surfaces in contact with concrete or masonry surfaces.

Exterior brick surfaces will require coating with a latex system including a primer sealer prime coat, latex exterior topcoat and latex exterior satin topcoat. Ferrous metal, galvanized metal and aluminum substrates will require a water-based light industrial coating system, including a water-based primer prime coating, light industrial exterior water-based topcoat, followed by a light industrial exterior water-based gloss topcoating. Wood siding will receive a four-coat system including a latex primer, latex flat exterior coating, satin latex exterior coating and a final latex exterior gloss coat. Wood trim will receive a two coat system with a latex satin exterior coating followed by a latex exterior gloss coating.

Exterior coatings are presumed to be lead-containing. Work must comply with the Envrionmental Protection Agency's "Lead Renovation, Repair and Painting Rule."

Owner-approved brands are Sherwin-Williams, Benjamin Moore and PPG.
