Request for Quotations

The City of Surrey invites Request For Quotation (RFQ) to provide comprehensive and collaborative Indigenous engagement with Katzie First Nation, Kwantlen First Nation and Semiahmoo First Nation, exhibit design, and exhibit construction of an 800 sf Indigenous Hall in an existing space at the Museum of Surrey (MoS),17710 56A Avenue, Surrey, BC.


The goal is to have an Indigenous Hall that is facilitated and sanctioned by Surrey’s Indigenous communities.  It is to be a safe and respectful place for Indigenous communities that also connects Surrey’s residents and visitors to local Indigenous tradition and knowledge. This will be a meeting place, a place of celebration, a place of demonstration and a place of learning.

The goal of the project is divided into stages:
Stage 1 - Engage with Indigenous partners with Museum staff, define programming and concept documents together with early cost estimates.
Stage 2 - Complete and document the detailed design and confirm timelines.
Stage 3 - Construct the displays and Hall.
Stage 4 - Test the Hall and have a private opening; and
Stage 5 - Hire a local Indigenous artist to begin work on a piece (in the Hall) that will be erected in the Museum of Surrey's new atrium.
