Project Goal

JCD performed exterior painting of Building 622 A & B (UPH Building – Bomar Hall) at the Presidio of Monterey. Description Jacob Construction & Design, Inc. was tasked with painting the exterior to a large dormitory building within the Defense Language Institute (POM). As building 622 A & B fell under the Presidio of Monterey Historic District, strict adherence to base historic preservation requirements. JCD’s goal for this project was to prep and paint surfaces, including the exterior masonry walls, concrete columns and floor decks, window and door frames, doors, the 2’ wide concrete soffit under the eaves for the building, light fixtures and vents, steel handrails along building access ramps and steps, concrete arched door canopies and cinder block planter boxes. For some of this work, JCD was required to trim bushes or tree limbs to access the walls. Metal gutters and down spouts had to be removed to paint all covered surfaces. Through JCD’s efforts, the total exterior surface of approximately 47,000 SF was abated, prepped, and painted with 3-coat application of paint. The buildings had approximately 250 windows and nine doorways of which received paint. The 2’ wide, high roof eave was approximately 1,300 LF in length. Since the government presumed that the existing coatings contained lead-based materials, Jacob Construction & Design, Inc. was required to conform to all local, state and federal regulations pertaining to the activities needed to stabilize the lead-based paint (LBP). Therefore, remediation efforts were mobilized to remove loose or flaky LBP by means of wet hand sanding, and wire brushing/wet hand scraping with an abrasive compound. This required careful monitoring of wind conditions and careful containment/removal of lead-based particles. Prior to turning over the project, sidewalk repairs were performed at numerous locations by method of demoing and pouring new concrete forms. The challenge of this project was that the coed dormitory building was fully occupied during project performance. Therefore, coordination and communication were a critical element of the project’s success.
