    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.
    The Biosphere will have intellectual ownership.
    
    
    For complete details, please refer to Annex "A", Statement of
    Work, of the Request for Proposal document.
    
    
    TWO PHASED EVALUATION APPROACH:

    respond to PHASE 2 of the evaluation.  Failure to submit a
    design concept in response to the Contracting Authority's
    request in PHASE 2 of the evaluation within 20 calendar days
    will result in the Bidder being declared non-responsive.
