The services shall include the stabilization, emergency conservation treatment, and restoration for Fort Pulaski National Monument Original Sally Port Doors. In addition to being located in a harsh marine environment, the outer doors were exposed to brackish water flooding by two hurricanes in 2016 and 2017. Strong winds have also taken their toll on the doors, particularly the latches and their surrounding areas. Necessary work includes stabilization, rinsing, restoration of missing and damaged elements, cleaning of metals and the application of patinas, inhibitors, and restorative and/or protective coatings such as wax.
Performance Period: The work performed under this Scope of Work shall be from approximately December 2018 to September 30, 2019. The contractor must be able to start work within 10 business days after the award document is distributed and receiving the Notice to Proceed from Contracting Officer.
Work Schedule: Upon receipt of the Notice to Proceed by the Contracting Officer, the Conservator shall proceed with the furnishing of the submittals for NPS approval. Work Schedule and milestones are to be established in writing with the Contracting Officer after receiving Notice to Proceed and will consider the least impact to visitors.
Hours of Operation:
The contractor is responsible for conducting business at the site between the hours of 7:00 am to 4:30 pm local time, Monday thru Friday except Federal holidays or when the Government facility is closed due to local or national emergencies, administrative closings, or similar Government directed facility closings. Work outside of these hours or days will not routinely be approved, and must be requested with the Contracting Officer, in writing, no less than 3 working days PRIOR to days/time requested.
The contractor will not be reimbursed when the government facility is closed for the above reasons. The Contractor must at all times maintain an adequate workforce for the uninterrupted performance of all tasks defined within this SOW when the Government facility is not closed for the above reasons. When hiring personnel, the Contractor shall keep in mind that the stability and continuity of the workforce are essential.
A¢¯ Project/Package Number: FOPU-244833
The location of the project for which these services are contracted is at the historic Fort Pulaski within the National Park Service unit Fort Pulaski National Monument.
Safety & Access - Special Considerations:
The conservation work covered in this contract is to be performed on doors of the only entrance/exit to the fort. These doors are also used to secure the fort after hours. Accommodations for access and the continued use of the entrance and doors by both staff and visitors is required. Accommodations must also be made to ensure the safe passage of visitors and staff through the area while work is ongoing during operating hours.
The work site is directly adjacent to the moat.
1) Appropriate safety precautions should be taken for any personnel working closely to a body
2) A safety plan and spill prevention plan will be required prior to the start of work. If mitigation of runoff or
chemical release is required, it will meet the appropriate environmental standards. Costs, both direct and indirect, incurred from mitigation of runoff or chemicals released in relation to the aforementioned work will be the responsibility of the contractor.
Certain phases of work, such as desalination and application of finishes, will be weather dependent. No work involving water is to occur if the temperature, including wind-chill, is less than 40 degrees F. Contractor should plan accordingly to complete work during the allotted performance period.
The contractor must provide all necessary equipment, supplies, and personnel to complete this work. The park is not responsible for furnishing anything.
Park housing is not available for this project. Housing, if required and transportation to and from the site will be the responsibility of the contractor. Park will provide access to and from the site.
I. PROJECT BACKGROUND
Fort Pulaski National Monument (FOPU) was established by Presidential Proclamation No. 1713 (43 Stat. 1968) on October 15, 1924, and was later transferred to the Department of the Interior as part of the national park system in 1933. The national monument, which sits between Savannah and Tybee Island on the Georgia coast, encompasses 5,623 acres on Cockspur and McQueens Islands. Within this setting, the monument contains a broad range of significant resources that reflect both the natural and cultural history of Georgia on the Atlantic coast. FOPU preserves and interprets the 19th century masonry fort and associated landscape that illustrate the evolution of civil engineering and military technology, a continuum of historic resources from colonial times to the present day, and approximately 5,000 acres of nearly pristine salt marsh on McQueens and Cockspur Islands in Savannah, Georgia.
Both the inner and outer pairs of sally port doors are original to the construction of Fort Pulaski, completed in 1847. These doors historically provided the only ingress and egress to the fort and serve the same purpose today. Paint remnants on the doors appear to date to the period of historic usage.
Each of the outer doors measures approximately 6 2 " wide by 1 2 0"high. They are comprised of two layers of planks each 2 " thick. The outer layer consists of 12 vertical members while the inner layer has23 horizontal members. Each plank is grooved and splined along the edges. The wood members are quarter sawn for strength and stability. Wood samples from the doors were identified by the Forest Products Lab as being southern yellow pine, (pinus). Although the particular species of pine could not be identified, visual inspection suggests it is a long leaf pine which is characterized as heavy, strong, stiff, hard and moderately high in shock resistance. The plank layers are joined together by means of ferrous rivets. The exterior rivet heads are hemispherical with the exception of those along the top row and column closest to the hinge. These heads are flattened to enable the door to close tightly against the overlapping stone jamb. Each door is hung on two large ferrous strap hinges that extend the full width. The hinges are affixed to the doors with bolts that have roundheads on the exterior and square nuts on the interior. The irregular appearance of the projecting threads suggest they were made by hand. The ferrous pintles are set into the stone jambs. The lower pintle has an integral pin while the upper pintle has a loose pin secured by means of a wedged shaped key. The lower hinge has a small oil hole above the pintle. The doors are secured by means of a pivoting ferrous bar affixed to the right hand door. In the closed position the bar rests on two ferrous U brackets riveted to the left hand door. A wicket, a small door for individual access, is cut into the left hand door. It swings on two strap hinges and is secured by a large sliding bolt. The wicket is constructed in the same manner as the larger doors and may have actually been cut out of the large door after its fabrication.
The inner doors or gates have diagonal latticework and arched tops. The right hand door is latticed top and bottom, while the left hand door is latticed above and planked below the mid-rail. A wicket is set into the planked portion of the left hand door. The doors are approximately 4 " thick, 144" tall and 5 4 " wide. The lattice-work is comprised of four layers varying from 1-1/8" to7 / 8 " thick. The layers are affixed to one another with flush rivets, screws and cut nails and set into grooves on the inner edges of the rails and stiles. The doors are hung on hinges similar to those found on the outer doors and are affixed with round head bolts and square nuts. They are secured with a bar that pivots on the right hand door and rests in two U shaped brackets on the left hand door
All conservation work produced under this Statement of Work shall be performed under the direct supervision of a professional conservator. All conservation work performed shall be derived with the expectation of compliance with:
A¢¯ NPS law and policy, specifically the standards contained in The Secretary of Interior Standards for Treatment of Historic Places https://www.nps.gov/tps/standards.htm , Preservation Briefs https://www.nps.gov/tps/how-to-preserve/briefs.htm , and American Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works (AIC) A¢¯Code of EthicsA¢¯ and A¢¯Guidelines for PracticeA¢¯ http://www.conservation-us.org/
