February 10th, 2015

Gemini North Observatory is a five-story facility that houses an 8-meter telescope and support instrumentation, equipment, and work space. Gemini seeks professional architectural and engineering (A&E) services via a professional services agreement for upcoming projects anticipated to total several hundred hours of architectural, structural, electrical, and/or design engineering services. Gemini seeks to pursue additional projects upon successful completion of the first project, the GN Storage Mezzanine.

Service Request #1 supports the fabrication of critically needed storage space on the mezzanine levels of the facility. Preparatory to performing the fabrication, AURA requires the services of an Architectural and Engineering (A&E) firm to develop design plans, in accordance with the Mezzanine Concept Drawings and design specifications provided. Projects would be conducted pursuant to agreed-upon service requests, based on hourly rates quoted in the Quote form.
