RESEARCH, DESIGN, FABRICATION AND INSTALLATION OF AN EXHIBIT NATURE OF REQUIREMENT: The Government of Canada is looking for a company that specializes in the field of designing and creating immersive multimedia environments* accessible to the general public in order to create a new experience at the Biosphere. The Contractor will be required to consult, develop, plan and coordinate the completion of the immersive multimedia experience as well as the visual and auditory content accompanying it. Complete details in Annex "A", Statement of Work. * An "immersive multimedia environment" as we understand it, materializes a space-time that is at the heart of the subject being presented. The scenography of the space is coherent and enclosed. The purpose of this type of exhibit is for the visitor to feel and truly understand the museum's messages on the subject at hand. These messages are decoded by the visitor with several senses. Note that the main effect of this "immersion" is to give visitors the impression of being displaced in space and time while making them feel emotions. The visitor must feel included in the experience he is living, otherwise the environment becomes a simple décor. Please find below a brief summary of the scope of the work: Develop a work plan and schedule; Propose a creative approach to the immersive and experiential visit; Provide the document and iconographic research; Consult with the Biosphere team to determine the major orientations of the experience wanted which will differ from the other multimedia/immersive experiences already produced elsewhere in other museums, science centres and cultural sites. Take into account the priority themes and the interactivity sought; Complete the research and writing based on the concept selected; Develop the thematic sequencing, the connecting thread, the design and the room design; Write the presentation documents (preliminary and final versions) for approval by management, including: zone use plan, photomontage and/or sketch and/or illustrations based on the concept; Submit the preliminary concept and then the final in printed format (3 bound colour copies), in Adobe Acrobat (PDF) format, in MS Word format (without images); After final concept has been approved, prepare fabrication plans and specifications that must be approved by the Project Authority: furnishings plan, lighting plan, audio-visual equipment list and graphic panels; Produce and install the elements to be added to the hall and the facilities outside the hall (if needed; Provide team support to the Biosphere during the first six (6) months of operation; Submit all final plans such as constructs, graphic files, multimedia and immersive elements.
