The City of Houston, Texas, awarded a contract of $206,450 to JNA Painting, Dallas, for coating work on exterior metal elements at the George R. Brown Convention Center. The city-owned facility was built in 1987 at a cost of $104.9 million, and was expanded to its current, 1.8-million-square-foot size in 2003 for an additional $165 million.
The project involves pressure-washing and recoating all of the blue- and white-colored steel elements, as well as red air vent grills. The steel, including structural steel columns, canopies, trusses, cooling towers, and deck plates, will be coated with a high-solids epoxy primer and an aliphatic acrylic-polyurethane gloss enamel finish.
