The Southeast Wisconsin Professional Baseball Park District has invited bids for cleaning and coating existing roof surfaces at Miller Park in Milwaukee.
Bids are due June 1.
The 11 year-old ballpark seats 41,900 and is home to Major League Baseball’s Milwaukee Brewers. The park is reported as the “largest construction project” in the state’s history.
According to the Brewers’ official website, the stadium’s brick façade and structural “elegance” offer fans a glimpse into baseball’s romantic past.
“Intimate proximity to the players, natural grass and a unique configuration separates this ballpark from any in the world,” the website says.
The ballpark also features a fan-shaped convertible roof, reported as the only one of its in North America. The 12,000-ton, seven-panel roof structure can open and close in 10 minutes, the website says.
The project includes cleaning and coating select roof trusses and box chords, concrete track beams and corroded metal roof deck surfaces.
Metals are to be hand-tool (Society of Protective Coatings (SSPC)-SP2), power-tool (SSPC-SP 3) and/or abrasive-blast cleaned (SSPC-SP 6) and coated with moisture-cure urethane systems, according to the bid documents.
In addition, the concrete surfaces must be cleaned (SSPC-SP 13) and stained with a water-based system.
The owner said the contract is to be awarded by June 8.
