Officials in North Providence, RI, are inviting bids to repaint non-brick surfaces on the Town Hall building, built in 1931.

The project will involve painting the non-brick surfaces of the Town Hall’s exterior, which is primarily made up of unpainted masonry brick covered in vinyl siding.

Project Details

The contractor will paint all previously painted surfaces, including windows, wood, columns, wooden trim, clock steeple, jet, gutters, and other frames and enclosures, according to the owner.

Bare wood surfaces will receive one coat of oil-based primer. All other surfaces will receive two coats of high-quality latex paint. The project documents specify that the coatings should all be applied by brush.

The project will include lead-based paint abatement, according to the owner.

The original trim surfaces have proved positive for lead-based paint and abatement will be required. The contractor should clean all surfaces with a five percent phosphate solution and power sand surfaces to remove lead-based paint. In addition, the use of HEPA vacuums, respirators and containment will be required, according to the project documents.

All work must be completed by Dec. 15, the owner said.

About the Building

Constructed in 1931, the current Town Hall in North Providence is dedicated to its land benefactor, Frank C. Angell. A real estate businessman who had also held many roles in the local government, Angell willed the land to the town in the 1900s.

Over the years, the exterior of the building has been renovated, including new brickwork, landscaping and painting, according to the owner. The colonial revival structure was designed by noted Rhode Island architects William Walker and Sons, who are known for their public buildings, according to reports.
