City of Dubuque Soliciting Bids for Historic Tower Rehabilitation

Friday, July 31, 2009

The City of Dubuque, Iowa, is soliciting bids for the stabilization and rehabilitation of an historic shot tower.  The 150-foot-high limestone and brick structure was built in 1856 to manufacture lead shot ammunition.  The ammunition, which was used during the Civil War, was created by pouring molten lead through a grate at the top of the tower.  The droplets would form into a sphere during the descent into a pool of water at the bottom, where the lead would cool to a solid state while retaining a spherical shape.

The project includes cleaning and coating new steel stair components and railings and existing ornamental tie rod covers with an epoxy-urethane system, as well as coating concrete roof slab surfaces with an elastomeric, traffic-bearing finish.

Contractors, design professionals, and material suppliers can use the information resource, Paint BidTracker, to learn more about public works projects that require painting and protective coatings.  To view details about this project and thousands of other bid opportunities and bid results, sign up for a FREE TRIAL at http://www.paintsquare.com/bidtracker/trial/ or call (800) 837-8303 x157.
