Lighthouse Painting: I'm with a Massachusetts municipal park department and have been ordered by the city's administration to "get the lighthouse painted." I know there's far more to it than just grabbing a brush and a can of paint. I need to know how to write specifications for a bid for such a project, as well as how to locate companies that might want the job. Since I'm starting from scratch here, any information or references would be greatly appreciated.

     There's a lot of information out there; however, my recommendation would be to first talk to another owner who has recently done a complete rehab, in and out. Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse - FL, contact info. Jamie Stuve, Director (561)747-8330, ext 102. She can advise you what to expect and avoid.

From William Woolley of City of Salem, Mass. on July 13, 2011:
     Thank you very much for addressing my forum inquiry. I believe your information will be of great value to me as I try to pull together specs for the job. Perhaps I will contact you directly, at a later date.

From Ramon Pelaez of Greenman Pedersen on July 12, 2011:
     The information provided by Barry should be able to help you develop a specification for your light house painting project. I suggest that in addition to the review of the resources he provided, you should consider reviewing SSPC TU 3 (Technology Update No. 3, Overcoating) prior to developing your site specific requirements if you are re-painting the light house. In addition, careful consideration must be given to the contractual requirements and specifications for work execution (recommend CSI format or equal) and a contractor selection process that will attract an experienced competent contractor. A successful coatings project that will meet the desired useful service life and life cycle cost consists of a competent design couple with clear and concise contractual requirements inclusive of clear QA / QC responsibilities and a painting contractor who can plan and deliver conforming work consistently.

     Bill, as a follow-up,  here is a link to a very comprehensive spec for refurbishing the Point Iroquios Lighthouse, Michigan https://www.fbo.gov/download/ff1/ff1f07bab6f37bed0c646768085a82c0/Specs_2011.pdf
