Extent of the paint work


Quotation must be given in strict accordance with the tender documents. The materials stated in the tender documents indicate type and quality level and will be binding for the contract, unless a list of materials has been attached to the quotation with indication of trade name and origin of corresponding materials which the contractor wants to use. AB 92 is valid for the tender documents and therefore forms the basis of the execution of the work.

It is appreciated that alternative suggestions of treatment that may imply advantages to the client, as far as price and quality are concerned, are enclosed the quotation.

Quality assurance:

For the work it applies that acceptance inspection, process control, finishing control and operational and maintenance instructions must be made to the extent that appears from the tender documents.

Preparation of the work:

Before the work is started, the project should be gone over carefully and a survey should be made on site, and necessary reservations and amendments should be made in writing. This is particularly of importance where the surfaces have not been delivered as per instructions and/or where delay at another contractor makes it impossible for the paint contractor to fulfil the obligations incurred by him.

Reference areas in the form of trial executions of the treatments described, and marking of suitable colour samples must be made and submitted for acceptance. The extent of the test areas appears from the tender documents.

Implementation of the work:

The prescribed materials, which are to be delivered on the building site in original packagings, treatments, requirements and approved alternatives and trial executions all form the basis of the paint work. Deviations during the building period can only be accepted if a written acceptance from the building management is available.

Quality control and special conditions:

All finished surfaces must be solid, without fat edges, spots and roughnesses that do not derive from the ground. It is generally assumed that the substrate that is delivered to the paint contractor appears without surface moisture and dirt e.g. from splashes of plaster, welding splashes and acid washing.

Surfaces treated with paint, coating or sand filler must appear with uniform surface structure without marks from blows after roller or fillings.

Test methods refer to Technological Institute, whose descriptions of method and definitions are valid.

Light and power:

The paint contractor must establish the artificial light on the workplace necessary to make a satisfactory execution of the work. The building management must be contacted as to where and in what distance sockets should be put up and if, and in that case where sockets for three-phase current should be put up.


The paint contractor must establish the scaffold necessary for the execution of the work.


The paint contractor must prevent splash-spots of paint etc. on facades, coating, elements and equipment with finished surface etc. by making the necessary covering up, so that dirt and damage during the execution of the paint contract is avoided.

Material stockpile, waste:

It is the paint contractor's responsibility to provide for a suitable material stockpile on the building site. Remnants of paint and the like must not be emptied in the drain of the building, but should be put in containers and removed from the building site, just like the paint contractor is responsible of damages as a consequence of waste of paint and the like.

Supplementary repair:

The paint contractor is liable to make minor repair after other workmen and ordinary paint repair to an extent of up to 1% of the paint contract. For larger repairs a written agreement of payment should be made with the building management. Repairs must be made so that they are not seen, nor missed.

Cleaning, standard:

Paint spots and splashes are removed everywhere. Remove paint from tumblers, bolts and similar movable furnishings. Water must not be used to such an extent that damages may arise. Nor must etching cleaning agents or tools be used that may damage the building parts or equipment in question.
