Wednesday, October 31, 2012

Comment | More

Suffolk County, NY, is inviting bids for supplying and installing new resinous flooring at a maximum-security facility that is the target of a lawsuit in Riverhead.

The county will open bids Nov. 14 for the project, which involves installing a seamless urethane floor in the kitchen area. A mandatory site visit for bidders will be held Nov. 7.

The jail is the focus of a federal-court lawsuit alleging deplorable conditions.

The contractor will clean concrete floor surfaces and apply a self-leveling urethane-urea-cementitious slurry and a high-performance, fast-curing urethane topcoat.

SSPC-QP 8 certification is required, and the contractor will be required to have an SSPC Level 2 concrete coating inspector on staff. The applicator should also furnish a one-year warranty on the materials and workmanship.

About the Facility

The 298,592-square-foot jail houses an average daily population of 1,732 inmates, according to the county’s website. The maximum-security wing was constructed in phases starting in 1966; a medium-security wing was added in 1987.

The jail was recently named in a lawsuit by the New York Civil Liberties Union and the law firm of Shearman & Sterling LLP, citing deplorable living conditions for inmates. The lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York on behalf of those currently and previously detained two Suffolk County facilities, including Riverhead.

According to NYCLU.org, the suit cited sewage back-ups from shower drains and toilets; showers coated in thick black mold with rusty faucets; air vents caked with mold, rust and dirt; brown drinking water; widespread vermin infestation; and unsanitary kitchen and dining areas.
