MCFN-GIR on behalf of the founding partners, seeks the provision of Architect and Engineering services for site selection, detail program development, conceptual design, and schematic design services for a new research centre in Fort Chipewyan, Alberta and a field station outside of Fort Chipewyan at Quatre Fourches in Wood Buffalo National Park (WBNP). As the Field Station is in WBNP so it will need to be designed to ensure compliance to any specific PCA building requirements.
At this time, programming for two separate approaches has been proposed.
1. Option A - Single Site Development in Fort Chipewyan with Field Station in WBNP
2. Option B – Two Site Development in Fort Chipewyan with Field Station in WBNP
It is expected that at the end of the Concept and Schematic Design Phase there will be a decision to proceed with Option A or Option B.
Details of the proposed research centre can be found in Appendix A - which provides a facility concept that is based on an identified need and set of defined operational functions and services. Details of the site and site design considerations found in Appendix A – Item 2.
