CH#238 - 84 Avenue V at 11th Street



84 Avenue V at 11th Street
Pump Station, Brooklyn, New York





The Challenge:

This pumping station was undergoing an upgrade and rehabilitation.  The main building, a national and city eligible landmark Beaux-Arts style structure which houses pumping equipment, had approximately 4,000 square feet of structural steel beams covered with rust and peeling, flaking Lead-Based Paint.   

The surfaces needed to be sealed to prevent further corrosion and delamination.  The solution and the tint color had to be reviewed by the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation (OPRHP) and New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC).






Benefits desired:

  • Green, Environmentally Friendly and Advanced Solution
  • No Hazardous Waste Generation before, during or after Application
  • No Surface Preparation
  • Halt rust and corrosion
  • Easily Applied
  • Long Term Solution
  • Custom Tinted









GLOBAL Encasement, Inc. was able to offer a simple, safe solution with a LeadLock Encasement System to manage in-place the lead-based painted surfaces. The rust was addressed with Rust-Inhibiting Primer, then PrepLESS Primer was used to lock down all the old peeling and flaking Lead Based Paint.
