Invitation to tender: Outdoor exhibition area and display for the Broads National Park & Norfolk County Council (Norwich City centre location) – expired


The Broads Authority and Norfolk County Council (NCC) are seeking a contractor to design, manufacture and install a large outdoor exhibition area and display for the Broads National Park. The display will be located on a hard-standing area in Norwich City Centre. It will be unstaffed and open to the public for a period of 11 months from 18 October 2021.

The ambition is to create an exhibition area which brings the Broads National Park experience into the city centre. The area should be a visitor attraction in its own right, inspiring people to explore the Broads throughout the year by showcasing the unique and abundant natural and cultural heritage within the region. It should also tell the story of the link between the Broads and the growth and development of Norwich and Norfolk.

The display will have significant visual impact and exploit the full potential of this high footfall area of the City Centre. It will incorporate a giant map of the Broads on the ground, interpretation and information panels and elements of shelter and shade.

All elements of the display must be capable of withstanding 9 months of continual use with the minimum of maintenance. All display elements must be able to be dismantled at the end of the 9 month period and be suitable for storage and eventual re-use at different location.

We are seeking a contractor to design, produce and install the exhibition space and display elements therein, in collaboration with the Broads Authority. The contractor should be familiar with planning, accessibility and health and safety regulations regarding such displays and will be required to assist with the application for relevant permissions.

The appointed consultant(s) will be responsible for:

  • Project planning, management and reporting
  • Design of each element of the exhibition area and displays – ground map, display panels, shelter and lighting. This will require consultation with the Broads Authority and other partners to ensure narrative and brand guidelines are followed
  • Preparation of planning / advertising consent applications
  • Supervising and managing installation
  • Cost effective procurement of all elements within budget and timeline
  • Manage the design, production and installation of the facility by 18 October 2021.

The contract is inclusive of all contractor resource as well as the display design, production and installation / dismantling costs to a maximum contract value of £45,000 inclusive of all costs.

This project is funded by EXPERIENCE - an ambitious, €23.3 million 3-year project led by Norfolk County Council which aims to deliver innovative and sustainable growth via a new tourism strategy.
