The World Museum of Mining in Montana has issued a request for proposals for an architect or engineer design team for the construction of a new Mining Heritage Centre.

The World Museum of Mining is seeking a funding package, schematic design, construction documents and construction administration services

The new heritage centre will be a standalone building at the south east section of the World Museum of Mining property. It will be two stories with a footprint of approximately 80’ x 100’.

The building must be climate controlled and fireproof to act as an archival space for photographs and other artifacts. The building’s design must also include a formal museum entry, ADA compliant restrooms, gift shop, storage areas, display features as well as meeting, office spaces, and the interior and exterior should reflect Butte and mining heritage.

Proposals should be submitted by February 9, 2018 and will be reviewed on February 15, 2018. Proposal finalists will present to WMM board on February 22, 2018.

More information is available online here. 

If interested in submitting a proposal, please call the World Museum of Mining at 406-723-7211 or e-mail director@miningmuseum.org.

The World Museum of Mining was founded in 1963. It is one of the few museums in the world located on an actual mine yard.
