Navy Seeks Small Business for $1M Recoating Job

Navy corrosion repairs

The Navy is seeking a small business to perform major corrosion repairs and recoating work at a vehicle maintenance shop in Jacksonville, FL.

The project would include repairs to Building 350, a vehicle maintenance shop at Blount Island Command that has sustained corrosion damage to the structural framing. The protective coating system is also in need of repair.

The Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Southeast is trying to identify potential bidders to determine whether to set aside the requirement for small business. NAVFAC estimates the eventual contract at $1 million to $5 million.

Anticipated Scope of Work

The work would include refurbishing the protective coating systems on all of the interior structural steel framing, including the roof trusses, wall framing, crane support structure, permanent equipment platform framing, all columns, girts, purlins and bracing.

The building’s stairs, landings, crane access platform, roof deck underside and jib cranes would also be included, as would the replacement of metal wall panel fasteners.

The contractor would be required to protect wall panels from high-pressure water blasting and other surface preparation that could damage the panels or connections. Required structural repairs to corrosion-damaged members include replacement of several gusset plates, two damaged bottom chord braces, and missing bolts and welds.

The contractor would need to provide plug welds to strengthen connections of wall angle to W-beams at eaves and provide removable guard rails at the stairs.

The majority of the work would have to be performed after normal operating hours and in a manner that minimizes disruption to “the operational tempo of the Blount Island Command mission,” according to NAVFAC. Contractors must have experience with containment and safety in a building with 65-foot ceilings.

Applications

The NAICS Code is 236210 with a Small Business Size Standard of $33.5 million. The government will use responses to this “Sources Sought” announcement to make acquisition decisions in accordance with Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) part 19.

Interested small business concerns must provide written notice stating their positive intention to submit a proposal for the project as a prime contractor by Jan. 21. More information is available at FedBizOpps.gov.
