Hartman-Walsh Painting Co., of St. Louis, MO, has secured a $4,218,882 contract from the U.S. Army Contracting Command to perform interior painting in four factory buildings at the Rock Island Arsenal Joint Manufacturing and Technology Center.
Located on an island in the Mississippi River between Davenport, IA, and Rock Island, IL, Rock Island Arsenal is currently the largest government-owned weapons manufacturing arsenal in the United States.
The island was established as a military facility in 1816, with the construction of Fort Armstrong. After serving as an army prison camp during the Civil War, the facility was converted to its current capacity as a military equipment and ordnance center.
The project involves cleaning and painting interior walls, ceilings, stairs, railings, piping, crane rails, columns, doors, frames, utilities and miscellaneous metals in four factory buildings with a total estimated floor area of 353,000 square feet.
The project includes cleaning, spot-priming, and repainting the interior surfaces with a contractor-proposed system. The project also includes handling lead-based paint, labeling piping, marking columns, and cleaning interior windows and light fixtures.
