The City of St. Augustine is soliciting contractors to paint the steel structure that supports the canopy of the St. Augustine Amphitheater.  

The amphitheater was built in 1965 to commemorate the 400-year anniversary of the founding of St. Augustine, Florida, the United States' oldest European settlement. The amphitheater covers 16 acres in Anastasia State Park. From 2002 through 2007, St. John’s County refurbished the venue, which now has a capacity of 41,000 people.

The City of St. Augustine is soliciting contractors to paint the steel structure that supports the canopy of the St. Augustine Amphitheatre.

Bids are due for this project by Oct. 17.

Scope of Work 

The awarded contractor is responsible for all labor, equipment and materials necessary for the preparation and coating of the steel structure that supports the St. Augustine Amphitheatre canopy.

When preparing the steel structure, the coating supplier will always designate the degree in which the surfaces are to be prepared. In regards to standards, the steel surfaces are to be cleaned by methods of solvent (SSPC-SP 1), hand-tool (SSPC-SP 2), power-tool (SSPC-SP 3), power-tool to bare metal (SSPC-SP 11), brush-off blast cleaning (SSPC-SP 7/NACE No. 4), industrial blast cleaning (SSPC-SP 7/NACE No. 8), commercial blast cleaning (SSPC-SP 6/NACE No. 3), near-white blast (SSPC-SP 10/NACE No. 2), white metal blast (SSPC-SP 5/NACE No. 1) or high and ultra-high pressure waterjetting (SSPC-SP 12/NACE No. 5).

Once surface preparation has been properly completed, the contractor is responsible for applying one coat of a fast-curing epoxy and two top coats of a semi-gloss, acrylic polyurethane to the entire steel structure.

This project is scheduled to begin on Dec. 15 and be completed by Feb. 15, 2019.

The owner-approved brand is Sherwin-Williams.
