Painting and Waterproofing of Building
Posted By gpeters on August 29, 2018
On Monday, January 30, Gramercy began its preparations for painting and waterproofing the building, which will take place in 2018 and 2019. The inspections and investigation have already taken place and we are proceeding with more specific testing and a mock-up. Contractors were out and removed some fluted metal panels, stripped the paint and sealant from a few windows and from some stamped/patterned metal panels, resealed the windows, spot painted the frames where damage or scratches existed and painted the stamped/patterned metal panels, the Architectural Committee will now review the results of the inspection and investigation as well as the analysis of the testing that will make Gramercy Towers look like the jewel of Nob Hill!
The Architectural Committee has met with five (5) contractors who have the experience and range to allow them to bid on this large project. After having met with these contractors, the committee has selected those contractors who have the greatest experience, keen knowledge and a record of accomplishment for this very specialized work and have given them the clearance to bid on the project. Once the bids have been reviewed, this information will be shared with the membership to allow you to gain an idea of the scope of work and the criteria for contractor selection.
