SECTION 2 SUMMARY OF WORK FOR:
1. The Confederate Monument
2. The Public Market Pavilion



1. DESCRIPTION: This work consists of masonry repair and
restoration to two historic monuments which are located in the
center of St. Augustine, Florida, in the historic Constitution
Plaza. These monuments are:

a. The Confederate Monument
b. The Public Market Pavilion

These structures share common preservation problems, are
significantly historically important, and are in need of immediate
preservation treatment to prevent further serious loss of historic
fabric. This work will include but is not limited to the following:

(1) Confederate Monument
(a) Remove all damaged and non-historic mortar and
stucco.
(b) Wash and clean to determineany further damage.
(c) Inspect, repair, or replace and stabilize
masonary cannon balls at top of monument.
(d) Replace and match removed stucco.
(e) Remove and replace damaged concrete base as
original.
(f) Restore perimeter pillars, balls and chains.
(2) Market Pavilion
(a) Remove iron pipe hand rail at west end and
repair column where rail was removed.
(b) Remove wood benches, pipes, iron rails and wood
rails from north and south sides. Repair all
columns where items were removed.
(c) Remove planters from north and south sides and
trash receptacle from southeast corner.
(d) Cement in all loose brick and replace missing
mortar joints around entire perimeter of
structure.
(e) Patch side walls as necessary after removal of
planters and fill dirt.
(f) Remove all extraneous items such as, nails,
staples, conduits, etc. from woodwork.
(g) Scrape and properly prepare all wood surfaces
for painting. Paint all wood surfaces with one
coat premium white flat acrylic latex paint.

(3) REMOVAL OF UNSOUND STUCCO

Stucco surfaces on these two monuments are deteriorated and in need
of restoration. In many areas the stucco surface is missing
altogether exposing the soft coquina substrate to accelerated
weathering damage. In other areas, however, particularly on the
Confederate Monument, the stucco has lost its bond with the
substrate but is still attached to the monument. All unsound stucco
shall be identified and carefully removed preparatory to subsequent
preservation treatment.






(4) REPAIR OF MASONRY


These monuments are constructed of coquina, a soft calcareous local
stone which weathers rapidly on exposure to the weather and human
abuse. There are a number of areas, particularly on the Public
Market Pavilion, which have lost substantial depth of surface
material and must be repaired prior to re-stuccoing. These repairs
will consist in building out cavities or areas of cavitation, by
filling with mortar or a mortar and stone mixture as required, to
restore the missing portions of stone or fill crevices.


(5) RESTORATION OF STUCCO

Following masonry repairs, the protective stucco coatings will be
restored.

2. CONCLUSION:

The intent of this project is to render these monuments secure from
the deteriorative effects of weather and human abuse and to leave
them in a sound, maintainable state of preservation.

3. PRECAUTIONS:

a. These monuments are historically significant and must
be treated with extreme care to preclude unwarranted
damage. Every precaution shall be taken to prevent
damage to the monuments, their component parts and
the surrounding site. Should any damage result, it
shall be repaired to the satisfaction of the
Contracting Officer and at no cost to the City of St.
Augustine.

a. Removal, cutting, alteration of any physical change
to any historic fabric except as called for by these
contract documents shall not be permitted except with
written approval to the Contracting Officer.

F. Latex Admixture: Nonreemulsifiable; ACRYL-60, Thoro System
Products, Miami, Florida, or equal.






PART 3: EXECUTION


3-1 REMOVAL OF UNSOUND STUCCO: Sound all stuccoed surfaces by
tapping with hammer to detect areas of unsound stucco. Carefully
cut out unsound areas to leave substrate and contiguous sound
stucco undamaged. Upon removal, clean exposed surfaces with stiff,
natural fiber bristle brushes (no metal bristle brushes will be
allowed) and copious amounts of potable water, removing all loose,
deteriorated, or other material which could adversely affect bond
between existing and new work. Any observed condition which might
preclude good bond of the new work to existing sound fabric shall
be immediately brought to the attention of the Contracting Officer
before proceeding with installation of new work in the affected
area.

3-2 PREPARATION OF EXISTING MASONRY SURFACES: Where new work is
to be joined to existing masonry, clean existing surfaces with
stiff, natural fiber bristle brushes (no metal bristle brushes
will be allowed) and copious amounts of potable water, removing
all loose, deteriorated, or other material which could adversely
affect good bond of the new work. Any observed condition which
might preclude good bond of the new work to existing sound fabric
shall be immediately brought to the attention of the Contracting
officer before proceeding with installation of new work in the
affected area. Insure that existing masonry surfaces are damp as
directed prior to application of new work.

3-3 MIXING MORTAR: Use approved mechanical batch mixer. While
the mixer is in operation, add approximately 3/4 the required
mortar, 1/2 the sand/coquina aggregate, and all of the lime and
cement and latex admixture; then the remainder of the sand/coquina
aggregate. All the batch to mix briefly; add water sparingly until
the mortar is of a workable consistency. To insure complete
hydration, mix for 10 minutes. If the mortar begins to stiffen,
retemper the mortar immediately by adding water and remixing the
mortar. Use mortar within 1-1/2 hour of mixing, after which discard
unused mortar. Retempering within these limits will be permitted
only as necessary to maintain workability.

3-4 MORTAR MIX: Mortar mixes are variable and not susceptible
to exact definition. Job conditions and variable factors in the
nature of the materials used affect mortar mixes. For work under
this section the following mixes establish the acceptable lower and
upper limits that will be permitted. Prior to execution of any work
under this section, trial batches and applications will be made
under the direction of the Contracting Officer to further define
the exact nature of permitted mortar mixes. All parts are by volume.

A. Lower Limit: 1 part Portland Cement
4 parts Lime
12 parts Sand/Coquina Aggregate
ACRYL-60 mixed with water in 3:1 ratio

B. Upper Limit: 2 parts Portland Cement
3 parts Lime
9 parts Sand/Coquina Aggregate
ACRYL-60 mixed with water in 3:1 ratio






3-5 PRECAUTIONS AND GENERAL REQUIREMENTS:


A. Protect facing material against staining, and keep all areas
of new work covered with approved nonstaining waterproof when work
is not in progress. When work is resumed, joints shall be cleaned
of all loose, defective or foreign materials, and thoroughly re-
damped as required to obtain the best possible bond with the new
work.

B. New work shall resemble as closely as possible the historic
work of that portion of the structure.

3-6 REPAIR OF MASONRY: All voids and cavitations of masonry
shall be filled and brought out to level surrounding or contigious
coquina substrate or to level with original surface where no
surrounding nor contigious coquina substrate exists. The intent of
the work of this paragraph is to result in a sound substrate
brought out to appropriate level for the application of stucco.
Where voids or cavitations require filling to a depth exceeding one
inch, the fill material shall consist of a mixture of broken
coquina stone and mortar. This mixture shall be developed in
consultation with the Contracting Officer by trial and error
process on-site. Before application to historic fabric, secure
approval of Contracting Officer. In general, the mixture shall
contain a large percentage of broken coquina aggregate (size to be
in proportion to void or cavitation to be filled) packed densely
with sufficient mortar to coat each stone aggregate and fill the
voids between the aggregate. The mix should be as dry as possible
to preclude shrinkage of resultant patch.

For areas one inch or less in depth, or otherwise as directed, fill
with dense mortar mix, as dry as possible yet with sufficient water
to be workable and to insure good bond.

Prior to application of repair material, thoroughly soak area to be
repaired with copious amounts of water. Do not apply repair
material until substrate has absorbed surface water. Apply repair
material as dry as possible in lifts and with sufficient pressure
to insure good bond with substrate.

3-7 CLEANING: At time of setting masonry, immediately remove
mortar, grout, and stains from the face of the masonry with dry
stiff natural fiber brushes. If required, additional cleaning
procedures shall be approved. Keep walls clean as work progresses.
After mortar has cured, perform final cleaning, using only clean
water and stiff natural fiber brushes.

3-8 CURING: Following cleaning, all new mortar shall be kept
covered and moist for 7 days following application.
