Toronto Zoo seeks wayfinding design consultants

Toronto Zoo, seeking new ticketing system, Lion

Toronto Zoo is inviting proposals for professional consulting services for wayfinding design.

Designers of signage systems are invited to submit written proposals to the zoo.  They will need to undertake a thorough review of the existing wayfinding signage system alongside the current layout, attractions, exhibits and amenities at the attraction.

In addition designers must bear in mind the future development of the Toronto Zoo based on the Strategic Plan and the Capital Master Plan.  These take into account the zoo’s long term goals and objectives.

The zoo states that its current objective is “to better assist our visitors to navigate our site with ease and allow them the option to create their desired route as they go.”

All proponents are expected to ensure that all costs, resources and services are included to deliver the proposed project.

The full proposal package includes the background to the project and a full description.  It also includes instructions, proposal requirements, and forms. Quoted prices will remain in effect for a period of 90 days from the proposal due date.

A self-guided site visit will take place on Monday 21st August 2017 at 9 a.m.

Due date for proposals is Friday 1st September 2017, at noon (local time).
