The project includes a lump sum item for painting existing structural steel using inorganic zinc coating system.

Treatment of pack rust areas and non-destructive testing will be requested as necessary.

The existing coatings are assumed to contain lead-based paint. Certification to SSPC-QP 1, SSPC-QP 2 and SSPC-QP 3 are required.
