7.         HSE

The foregoing procedure for the Painting Works will serve as a guide or reference to the SE and QCE along the course of their work to achieve an acceptable quality of workmanship, and at the same time to control materials utilization and attaining the optimum results with less time and effort as:

Brush, Roller … etc.

  1. Application
  1. Apply paint in accordance with the manufacturer’s directions. Use applicators and techniques best suited for the type of material being applied.
  2. Allow coats to dry thoroughly before succeeding coats are applied; allow a minimum of 24 hours between applications on any one surface unless otherwise specified by the paint materials manufacturer.
  3. Sandpaper undercoats on interior metal thoroughly and uniformly to provide a smooth, even surface for finish coats.
  4. Apply paint by brush, roller, spray, or other acceptable practice in accordance with the manufacturer’s directions. Use brushes best suited for the type of material being applied. Use rollers of carpet, velvet back, or high-pile sheep wool as recommended by the paint manufacturer for material and texture required.
  5. Brush-out and work all brush coats into the surfaces in an even film. Cloudiness, spotting, holidays, laps, brush marks, runs, sags, or other surface imperfections will not be acceptable. Neatly draw all primer or first coats, unless otherwise permitted to use mechanical applicators.
  6. Except as otherwise specified, apply a prime coat to material which is required to be painted or finished.
  7. Apply filler materials like (vetonite) even on plastered walls or fair face ceiling to insure aligned surface before putty as manufacturer recommendation.
  8. Apply the first-coat material to surfaces that have been cleaned, pre-treated or otherwise prepared for painting as soon as practicable after preparation and before subsequent surface deterioration.
  9. Number of coats and paint film thickness required is the same regardless of the application method. Sand between each enamel and varnish coat application with fine sandpaper or rub surfaces with pumice stone where required to produce an even, smooth surface in accordance with the paint manufacturer’s directions.
  10. Allow sufficient time between successive coatings to permit thorough drying. Do not re-coat until paint does not deform or feel sticky under moderate thumb pressure and the application of loss of adhesion of the undercoat.
  11. Paint type, color, surface treatment shall be as scheduled. Provide finish coats which are compatible with prime paints used.
  12. When undercoats, stains, or other conditions show through the final coat of paint, apply additional coats until the paint film is of uniform finish, color and appearance. Insure that all surfaces including edges, corners, crevices, welds, and exposed fasteners receive a film thickness equivalent to that of flat surfaces.
  13. Paint surfaces behind movable equipment and furniture the same as similar exposed surfaces. Paint surfaces behind permanently-fixed equipment or furniture with prime coat only. Exposed surfaces are defined as those areas visible when permanent or built-in fixtures, convector covers, covers for finned tube radiation, grilles and similar items are in place in areas scheduled to be painted.
  1. Where visible through registers or grilles, paint interior surfaces of ducts and void spaces with a flat, non-specular black paint.
  2. Paint the back sides of access panels and removable or hinged covers to match the exposed surfaces.
  3. Finish exterior doors on tops, bottoms and side edges the same as the exterior faces, unless otherwise indicated.
  4. Omit primer on metal surfaces that have been shop-primed and touch-up painted.
  5. Dry Film Thickness: Provide dry film thickness for each finish type, including prime and finish coats, not less than total dry film thickness as specified in painting schedule.
  6. Stipple Enamel Finish: Roll and redistribute paint to an even and fine texture.

Leave no evidence of rolling such as laps, irregularity in texture, skid marks, or other surfaces imperfections.

Remove, refinish or re-paint work not in compliance with specified requirements.

The QCE shall invite the engineer to witness the foregoing procedure as per the submitted IRs (Inspection Requests).

An IR will be offered to the Engineer after surface preparation is completed. Once the Engineer approves that the surface is ready for the first coat application, an IR for first coat application will be offered for inspection. Likewise, a WIR will always be offered to the Engineer for inspection and acceptance on the subsequent applications for the second, third, fourth and final coat activities.

Frequency of inspection requests shall be as per the approved ITP.


The QA/QC Manager will monitor and ensure that this Method Statement shall be observed so that smooth Work Flow will be attained. Furthermore, the QA/QC Team shall ensure that each individual elements of the work shall be completed substantially in compliance with the approved plans and project specifications to meet client’s expectation.
