The Society for Protective Coatings (SSPC) annually recognizes the work of contractors and coating manufacturers for excellence on coatings projects with its Structure Awards celebration.
This year Baynum Painting has had the honor of receiving the George Campbell Award for completing the Coney Island Cyclone repaint in 2016.
The George Campbell Award honors a difficult or complex industrial or commercial coatings project. Challenges may include extreme environmental conditions, time constraints, limited access or high traffic, complex structural components, or coordination with multiple trades or subcontractors.

The world’s most famous roller coaster, built in 1927, received some special attention from Baynum Painting’s crew. With 88 years of neglect and damage from the elements our team worked hard at prepping and removing worn paint and corrosion. The iconic ride has been restored to a beautiful new white finish and we are honored to have had a hand in the ride’s remarkable renovation.
This is Baynum Painting’s second SSPC award, in 2008 having been a recipient of their William Johnson Award for painting Six Flags Scream at Fiesta Texas.
