Comment | More

The North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources has invited bids for the power washing, priming, and painting of the CSS Neuse Civil War Interpretive Center in Kinston, NC.

The project involves cleaning, priming, surface preparation, and recoating the exterior masonry surfaces of the building, which houses a gunboat from the Civil War.

Officials are seeking a contractor to repaint exterior surfaces of the CSS Neuse Civil War Interpretive Center building in downtown Kinston, NC.

Bids are due Feb 24.

Project Details

The contractor will be expected to power-wash the exterior precast masonry and previously painted masonry surfaces through use of a chlorinated cleaning solution to remove all debris without harm to the building. The surface may be scraped to remove all areas of loose paint. No heat torches or rotary sanders will be permitted on this project.

All surfaces to be painted will require cleaning and drying before application

Contractors will paint the exterior masonry surfaces using either brushes, 3/8-inch nap rollers, or a sprayer. All unpainted surfaces will require adequate masking to prevent overspray.

About the Vessel

The CSS Neuse Civil War Interpretive Center opened to the public on July 18, 2013. It houses the reassembled CSS Neuse, one of the 26 ironclads commissioned by the Confederate navy, according to the North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources.

The CSS Neuse is transported through downtown Kinston, NC, to the Interpretive Center in June 2012.

The ship measured 158 feet long and 34 feet wide, but delays in construction prevented the gunboat from seeing combat. The vessel was deliberately burned by its crew during Union occupation of Kinston in March 1858, ultimately sinking the craft.

The boat was preserved by the muddy water of the Neuse River for nearly 100 years until its recovery began in 1961. By 1963, the ship was finally raised, along with nearly 15,000 artifacts that were recovered from within.

The Interpretive Center is available for tours while permanent exhibits are still in development, according to the owner.
