Request for Proposals/Quotes


The Town of Princeton is looking to replace the roof at the Princeton Arena and increase the roof insulation value. The Princeton Arena was built in 1974 and is a typical Butler style steel building. The arena dimensions are 243’ long, 110’ wide and 20’ tall with a metal roof. 

The work needs to be completed by August 31, 2023, in order to facilitate the 2023 hockey season.

The Town of Princeton is requesting proposals to provide all materials, labor, equipment, and construction services for the replacement of the Princeton Arena Roof as described in the scope of work listed below.

The scope of work includes but is not limited to:

  • Supply and install roof insulation appropriate for an arena application and sufficient for the Princeton area.
  • Supply and install a final waterproof and snow rated roofing material.
  • The work site is to be kept clean, neat, and tidy. Proper precautions are to be taken to keep workers and public safe at all times. 

The contractor shall furnish, deliver, supply, and install complete with all materials, equipment, and labor, including all found items, taxes, duties and fees required to provide a complete and operational product.

The contractor will be responsible for coordinating this work along with other works required to complete the project.
