Seven outstanding projects in the protective coatings field from the past year were honored with SSPC Structure Awards at the SSPC 2018 awards luncheon, held Monday (Jan. 15) at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center.

E. Crone Knoy Award

The E. Crone Knoy Award, recognizing outstanding achievement in industrial or commercial coatings work that demonstrates innovation, durability or utility, went to the Sperry Communication Tower, in the city of Eagan, Minnesota. The tower went up in place of an old water tower that had communication equipment on it; aesthetics were important as the tower is a landmark for the growing city.

The project was carried out for the City of Eagan by contractor STEALTH Concealment Solutions Inc., in conjunction with engineer Short Elliott Hendrickson Inc. and coating supplier The Sherwin-Williams Company.

Eric S. Kline Award

The Eric S. Kline is given in recognition of outstanding achievement in industrial coatings work performed in a fixed shop facility. This year’s Kline Award when to the John Greenleaf Whittier Memorial Bridge project, owned by the Massachusetts Department of Transportation.

The old Whittier was replaced completely with a new twin-span steel-arch bridge. The coating was undertaken by contractor Canam-Bridges with coatings supplied by PPG Protective and Marine Coatings.

George Campbell Award

The George Campbell is awarded in recognition of a single outstanding achievement in the completion of a difficult or complex industrial coatings project. The Campbell this year was given to two projects.

The Lewis and Clark Bridge project, carried out by contractor Champion Painting Specialty Services Corp., with materials supplied by Carboline Company, was one recipient. Walsh-Vinci JV served as the general contractor on the project, owned by WVB East End Partners LLC.

The Lewis and Clark was nominated because of the tight timeline the contractors adhered to and the challenges, including outside temperatures dipping to 8 degrees Fahrenheit, overcome to make a Nov. 15 opening date for the span.

The U.S. 190 Mississippi River Bridge, owned by the Louisiana Department of Transportation, also won the Campbell this year. The Liberty Maintenance/Alpha Painting JV carried out the coating job with materials supplied by Sherwin-Williams, under the guidance of engineering firm Modjeski and Masters.

The U.S. 190  project was chosen due to the challenges of finding pitting and corrosion that in many cases could not be identified until after blasting, and keeping the bridge open to vehicular and rail traffic during the project.

Military Coatings Project Award of Excellence

The Military Coatings Project Award of Excellence was awarded to the USS Missouri Battleship project, undertaken by Pacific Shipyards International with coatings supplied by PPG Protective and Marine, for owner USS Missouri Memorial Association Inc.

The “Mighty Mo” was restored with a complete recoating as well as structural steel repairs. The ship, more than 75 years old, served until 1992 and is known as the site of the surrender of the Empire of Japan to end World War II.

SSPC Coatings Industry Spirit Award

The SSPC Coatings Industry Spirit Award, honoring a coatings project that demonstrates extraordinary service benefiting a community or the industry, went to the 2.0 MG Toropillar North Water Tower in Finlay, Ohio. The newly repainted tower designates Findlay as “Flag City U.S.A.” with an American flag-themed design that reads, "Findlay Salutes Veterans."

The tower was painted by UCL Inc. with coatings supplied by Sherwin-Williams.

William Johnson Award

The William Johnson Award honors outstanding achievement demonstrating aesthetic merit in industrial coatings work. The award this year went to the St. Joseph North Pier Inner and  Outer Lights and Catwalk.

St. Joseph Lightnouse

St. Joseph North Pier Lighthouse

Owned by the City of St. Joseph, Michigan, the St. Joseph North Pier Lighthouse was built in 1907. The city took ownership from the Coast Guard in 2008, with the expectation it would be restored and opened to the public. NCP Coatings Inc. supplied a four-coat system—zinc-rich primer, two formulas of  epoxy primer and a two-component polysiloxane topcoat developed with Naval Research Labs.

The coating job was undertaken by Mihm Enterprises with architect Smay Trombley Architecture.
