Request for Qualifications
Professional Engineering Services
Arena Floor System Replacement

The Village of Bensenville is seeking qualifications for “Professional Engineering Services” for the replacement of the arena floor system at the Edge on Jefferson Street - West Ice Arena, at 735 E. Jefferson Street, Bensenville, IL 60106.

Scope of Services
The Village of Bensenville owns and operates a twin pad Ice Arena known as the Edge on Jefferson Street. The Jefferson West surface has had an inoperable underfloor warming system for several years and now has floor heaving as a result. The Village of Bensenville believes that removal of the existing “heaved” concrete floor system and installation of a new, full- functioning, concrete floor system is necessary to restore reliable and dependable ongoing operation of its West Arena. During the course of this renovation, dasher board systems will need to be removed prior to the floor removal and reinstalled at the conclusion of the successful floor replacement. Demonstration of the successful operation of the refrigeration system and all related components shall be required upon completion of this project.

Qualified recipients of this award shall demonstrate the ability to evaluate and determine all factors which contributed to the existing floor heave as well as the ability to recommend and implement necessary measures to ensure prevention of future floor heaving of the Edge on Jefferson West ice arena.
