The Institute of Coating Technologies can undertake to draft specifications quickly and impartially when needed for the preparation and painting of a project, from the simplest to the more complex. The writing-up of specifications is always in compliance with current laws in the country where the project is being implemented, with international and national standards and of course with the requirements and unique features of each project individually.
A well-structured painting specification plays a vital role in a project’s successful completion. It ensures a smooth painting process to satisfy all stakeholders.
A well-structured painting specification plays a vital role in a project’s successful completion. It contains all the technical information and guidelines required and ensures the smooth, flawless painting process to satisfy all stakeholders. Institute members, with a high level of training and many years of experience in the coating industry, are in a position to understand all of the painting steps, the materials and various techniques used in preparation and application.
The specifications must be clear for all stakeholders – the project developer, the contractor, technical personnel, paint companies – as that is the only way to ensure that the bid submission process goes smoothly and that ultimately the most advantageous bid for a project wins the award. The specifications of a project also function as legal documents in the event of a dispute. Any confusion that may result from unclear specifications could increase the risk of contract non-compliance or a legal dispute.
