The Department of Hawaiian Home Lands is seeking contractors to complete a residents' center located in Honolulu.

Bids are due Nov. 8.

Scope of Work

The project will consist of construction of a modular community center on Hawaiian Home Lands in Ho’olehua, Moloka’i. Construction will include a parking lot, wastewater system, furnishing the new building and the building itself. This project will heavily serve veterans in the area and offer convenience due to the Molokai Airport being nearby.

The approved contractor will oversee various shop painting in which primer will be applied to the surface of metal fabrications. This requires Paint Application Specification No. 1 (SSPC-PA 1). These surfaces also require Commercial Blast Cleaning (SSPC-SP 6) to exterior surfaces, and Power-Tool Cleaning (SSPC-SP 3) to interior surfaces.

The project also may include repairing galvanized steel with high-zinc-dust-content paint complying with SSPC-Paint 20. Exterior and interior galvanized and non-ferrous metal surfaces will receive a three-coat acrylic semi-gloss system.

Exposed surfaces including nuts and bolts will be wire brush-cleaned to remove foreign and loose materials. Cleaning will be followed with sanding to provide a smooth surface. Ductile iron will then be coated with an asphaltium coating system. A second coat will be applied as directed by the construction manager.

Exterior concrete, cement plaster and fiber cement siding will require a prime coat of an acrylic masonry sealer, a second coating of acrylic exterior stain and an acrylic house and trim semi-gloss finish coating.
