The Roseau County Museum is in search of a licensed electrician for lighting restructure project within the museum. The job would consist of:
- Install occupancy sensors and dimmers to control the exhibit track lighting. These controls will limit both the intensity and duration of light exposure on your collection objects as well as reducing your energy costs.
- Replace obsolete fluorescent and quartz/halogen lighting fixtures with new energy efficient LED fixtures. Linear fixtures will provide ambient light in both the gallery and research area and track lighting will accent focal points of the exhibits. The fixtures should have a color temperature of 3000 Kelvin, a color rendering index above 90, and should dimmable to provide between 5 and 30 footcandles of light. This range will provide adequate light levels for the wide range and viewing requirements of your visitors.
- Install retrofit LED tubes in existing fluorescent fixtures in the collection storage area. The look of the light fixture isn’t important and the retrofit tube is the most cost-effective option.
- Add additional electrical outlets throughout certain locations in the museum.
The Roseau County Museum hired a consultant for a lighting redesign being lighting is one of the most critical elements in the museum environment. Proper lighting not only protects valuable artifacts but also plays a major role in providing a positive visitor experience. The designer’s report and specifications can be obtained at the museum, via email, or www.roseaucohistoricalsociety.org
PHYSICAL INSPECTION: All Bidders for this project are expected to visit the site and examine the needs of the museum. Tours of our facility can be scheduled by contacting Britt at the museum.
TIME: This project will be scheduled for 2020 if grant money is secured in December 2019. However, time is of the essence when working in the gallery. The Bidder must state an estimated number of calendar days for completing this phase of the project.
