The National Guard Bureau has invited bids for painting the exterior of an aircraft hangar building at the Stratton Air National Guard Base in Scotia, N.Y.
Bids are due Sept. 26. The owner recommends that interested contractors arrange a site visit prior to bidding.
The base is home to the 109th Airlift Wing, established in 1948 as a fighter unit. The site’s website notes that the unit has been led by 11 different commanders, flown six types of aircraft and embarked on countless missions statewide, worldwide, and from the North to South Poles.
The project involves painting EIFS wall sections and large pocket doors of the main hangar. The contractor will also be required to paint the front end of the barrel roof, hangar doors, the vertical wall that supports the back-end of the barrel roof, and the exterior walls of the boiler room, per the project documents.
The documents indicate that the barrel roof is approximately 60 feet from the ground and the building is an estimated 148 feet wide.
Rust and loose paint must be removed from the existing doors. Also, an exterior metal primer should be applied to all exposed metal and finished with an exterior metal paint, the documents specify.
According to the bid documents a majority of the paint will be brown, with some yellow sections of EIFS, and red trim.
The project is set aside for Small Business sources.
