Standard for Painting in All UIC State Supported Buildings – 12/2018
* This standard applies to all spaces in State supported buildings at UIC.
Due to their architectural and historical significance, unpainted, exposed concrete block, brick and cast-in-place or precast concrete should not be painted. These surfaces could be cleaned to help restore them to their original condition.
Block or concrete that has been previously painted, and drywall or plaster walls can be painted using a low VOC paint with an eggshell finish.
