The City of Toronto invites design consultant teams, led by a registered Canadian architect, to submit Expressions of Interest (EOI) to participate in a two-stage national design competition for the design of a new Visitor Centre at Fort York National Historic Site.
A selection of up to five (5) shortlisted teams will proceed to Stage II of the competition, which calls for a design concept for the Visitor Centre and the surrounding grounds. Stage II submissions should express outstanding design and program excellence in order to reflect the City’s aspirations that the story of Fort York be told in meaningful and compelling ways in order to emphasize its relevance to both local visitors and tourists today.
Stage II submissions will be judged by a jury. The successful team will be retained to complete detailed designs and working drawings for the project. To obtain a copy of the Request for Expression of Interest (REOI) and more details, please refer to the City of Toronto’s call documents website at www.toronto.ca/calldocuments/ (Professional Services link) or https://wx.toronto.ca/inter/pmmd/calls.nsf/0/65B0BCCAF44F7C718525755F006EB357?OpenDocument.
The submission deadline is 12:00 noon (local Toronto time) on March 11, 2009.
