The Borough of Glassboro, N.J., is prequalifying prospective general contractors for renovation of the Glassboro Historic Train Station, in a project that will include coatings removal and repainting.

The train station was built in 1860 and has been abandoned since 1971. Since 2002, Glassboro has been looking for ways to fund renovation and put the historic building to use. The renovation effort has received numerous grants over the years totaling approximately $1.1 million.

Glassboro Historic Train Station

The Glassboro Train Station was built in 1860 and has been abandoned since 1971.

Glassboro’s Historic Train Station is eligible for listing on the New Jersey and National Registers of Historic Places. The ultimate goal is to reopen the site to the public, interpret its history in its proper setting and convert it into a museum, public meeting space and welcome center.

The project includes restoration of the historic building, paint removal, earthwork, special coating of metals, painting, and further identifying approaches to preservation and restoration of the station.

Also, lead abatement is required. Disposal of materials containing lead paint shall be conducted in accordance with all laws, rules and regulations.

Selective demolition is also required, as well as restoration of wood finishes including paint removal, rough carpentry, finish carpentry, wood restoration, and application of joint sealers. Masonry cleaning, replacement and/or restoration are also part of the project scope.

A prequalification meeting will be held March 3. Bids are due March 11. The project is estimated to have a construction value of approximately $1,000,000.

Interested general contractors should visit Glassboro’s website.
