Bid Title: Request for Qualifications: Contractors in Construction Services for Milton Grange Hall Project
Category: Town Manager
Status: Closed


Milton Grange HallThe Town of Milton is requesting Statements of Qualifications (SOQ) from independent contractors for upcoming renovations of the Grange Hall (135 River Street), which was purchased by the Town in December 2022. The Municipality is seeking one or more contractors with expertise in any or all of the following service areas:

  • Carpentry
  • Plumbing
  • Dry Wall
  • Framing
  • Masonry
  • Painting (Interior and Exterior)
  • Electrical

Project Background

The Town acquired the Milton Grange Hall in December of 2022. Constructed in 1948, the building is in need of a number of renovations to prepare it for public use starting late spring/early summer. It will be used as a public meeting/event space, which can be reserved by the Town, by the general public or by outside organizations for programs/events. 

The Town of Milton will be undertaking a number of renovations for the project, not only to modernize the space and increase its cosmetic appeal but also to improve accessibility. The purchase of the building and the renovations are made possible by American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds, which were allocated to the acquisition by the Milton Selectboard. The Town, therefore, has a limited budget to complete this necessary work. The work must be completed no later than May 1, so that the building will be available for summer programming that is currently being scheduled. 

Scope of Work

The work required shall include, but is not necessarily limited to:

  • installation of an accessibility lift, 
  • bathroom renovations to accommodate accessibility standards, 
  • addition of a bathroom in the lower level, 
  • interior lighting replacements, 
  • window and door replacements, 
  • carpet replacement, 
  • resurfacing of hardwood flooring, 
  • interior and exterior painting, 
  • minor finish trim work, 
  • demolition of existing chimney, 
  • removal of dilapidated accessibility ramp, 
  • repair of masonry block and pointing, 
  • small-scale concrete removal (for lift).

The successful contractors will be selected based upon their demonstrated ability to provide the highest qualified team to achieve the goals of the project through their SOQ and possible interview with the Town Manager.

The project is managed locally by Town Manager and Municipal Project Manager, Donald Turner, Jr., (802) 891-8021, . The owner of the project is the Town and the ultimate authority for the contractor during the project rests with the Town of Milton Selectboard, through its Municipal Project Manager.
