PROJECT INFORMATION
2.1 Information and Background
PROJECT INFORMATION:
The Museum of Idaho, previously known as the Bonneville County Historical Society is a free-standing, non-profit organization dedicated to bringing internationally & nationally-acclaimed
3
RFQ: CM/GC Services Museum of Idaho Expansion
exhibits to southeast Idaho, preserving and showcasing natural and cultural history, and providing unique educational opportunities for everyone.
The Museum, started from humble beginnings in the old city library building built in 1916, has undergone several renovations and one major expansion which was completed in 2003. The architecture spans 100 years and exterior and interior finishes are reflective of the eras in which they were constructed. The original library building is considered a historical building and the exterior may not be altered without permission.
Currently the Museum has 5,114 ft2 of permanent exhibit space and offers approximately 7,500 ft2 space for various themed exhibits that create unique, cultural opportunities for regional residents and visitors to the area. Education, a focus for the museum, is provided by youth summer camps, the children’s discovery center, and various classes held in the education center.
An increase in visitors, education requests, and exhibit opportunities is requiring the museum to expand its offerings. During 2016 we expect nearly 100,000 visitors will have toured the exhibits and participated in our education programs.
This work will require experience and expertise in staging construction over an extended period of time while accommodating occupied building.
The expansion design for the museum should include, at a minimum, the following:
 A basement with elevator access of approximately 9,000 ft2.
 An approximate 3000 ft2. Climate controlled collections storage space in basement.
 3000 ft2 crate storage area (does not need to be climate controlled.)
 An exhibit space of 10,000 to 12,000 ft2 with 35ft. ceiling and atrium space. “D” room may be considered for conversion to exhibit space.
 Exhibit space structure shall be of sufficient strength and adaptable design to support (hang) large, heavy displays, e.g. WW II era airplane.
 New exhibit area(s) shall have access control from the existing museum space.
 Exhibit space shall have a method to separate display areas (moveable walls) and control acoustics (sound damping).
 A museum quality fully adjustable and dimmable lighting display grid, accessible by a cat walk or dimmers and control board.
 Flexible, museum quality sound system
 Exhibit space shall be temperature and humidity controlled; 70° F(+/-2°) and 50% RH (+/-5%).
 A method to control the amount of exterior light shall be provided for the exhibit space.
 An adjustable 110 V AC power system shall be provided in the floor and overhead exhibit spaces. A 220 V AC and 3 phase power receptacles shall be available in each exhibit area.
 Each floor of the exhibit space shall provide for modular, museum quality projection of HD media.
 A water drain in each exhibit space (at least one on each level) with an accessible hose bib per level.
4
RFQ: CM/GC Services Museum of Idaho Expansion
 A commercially sized (tractor and trailer) loading dock:
 Able to unload and load a 52 ft. trailer.
 Prefer to have floor of trailer at same level as ground floor of museum.
 An elevator, or lift, to all floors, with enough capacity and size to move large displays. Elevator size 12X10X10 minimum
 Require a 500- 750 sq. ft. climate controlled, secure, access limited collections staging/prep area, adjacent to the loading dock with double doors large enough to accommodate large displays and crates (on a forklift) with adjustable display type lighting.
 Require a 1000 sq. ft. main floor display staging and shop area (for builds) 1000 sq. ft. Cannot be adjacent to collections staging/prep area.
 Require an access controlled educational space, adjacent to the exhibit space(s) with of sufficient size to seat 200, or stand up space for 300 to 500 people, and;
 Controlled, direct outside access.
 PA, projection, and WIFI capable.
 Storage and counter space/cabinets with a commercial sized sink and fixtures.
 Modular, sound controlled and adjustable wall system.
 Readily accessible 150 to 300 sq. ft. storage space.
 Near restrooms. (So can send children without having to accompany)
 A method to control the amount of exterior light shall be provided for the educational space.
General design requirements/information includes:
 Museum security system.
 WIFI capability throughout expansion and existing museum.
 Cat 6A or greater cabling throughout museum expansion area.
 Restrooms require floor drains and shall be constructed of easy to maintain and clean materials (current ones are inadequate). At least one gender neutral bathroom shall be available and must be accessible from current museum area.
 Require a small private “parent area” – changing table, lockable door, and small refrigerator and chair (for nursing mothers) – preferred in current museum, but okay if in expansion area.
 Space above current area may be available for offices – need to complete stairs
 Preference is to not move children’s room (although it may be possible in future)
 Understanding is that the foundation of the Masonic temple part of existing space is sufficient to support a third floor (will need verification)
 The building is partially funded by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. As such, government grant requirements apply, for example Davis-Bacon wage rates.
The final MOI expansion must be designed and constructed to be cost effective and functionally efficient, integrating with the current museum, including aesthetic aspects. The addition may be two or three stories with a target cost to construct at $150.00/sq.ft. Renovation and/or
5

restructuring of current interior spaces, if any, should be included in the plans.
