The City of Elgin is seeking contractors interested in the cleaning and recoating of the Randall Road Water Tower located in the Illinois town.

A mandatory pre-bid meeting will be held Jan. 9.

Bids are due Jan. 17.

The estimated cost of work is $1 million.

Scope of Work

This project involves structural repair and recoating of the existing Randall Road Water Tower structure. The 1 million-gallon tower was constructed and painted in 1996 by CB&I.

KLM Engineering Inc.

Bids are due Jan. 17 for the structural repair and recoating of a 1 million-gallon water tower structure in Elgin, IL.

The current interior wet coating has approximately 30 percent visible coating failures above the high water line and approximately 30 to 40 percent visible coating failures below the high water line. Roughly 50 to 60 percent of the exterior visible coatings have visible failures.

Following structural repairs, the contractor will oversee abrasive blast-cleaning of all interior reservoir surfaces to Near White (SSPC-SP 10) and coated with a zinc-epoxy coating system. Exterior tank surfaces will require a zinc-epoxy-urethane system. The approved manufacturer is Tnemec.

The entire interior wet surface will require removal of contaminants with a solvent cleaner before application of the zinc-epoxy coating system. This will also require application of an additional coat of primer or intermediate coat to ensure uniformity around seams and welds.

Interior dry surfaces will require abrasive blasting to Commercial Blast Cleaning (SSPC-SP 6) before application of the zinc-epoxy coating system.
