Request for Proposals for Architectural and Engineering Services for the Lighthouse Enclosures
The South Street Seaport Museum seeks qualified architectural firms to provide architectural and preservation services, including the coordination of all required consultants and engineers, for the renovation of the Titanic Memorial Lighthouse.
Titanic Memorial Lighthouse, located in the Titanic Memorial Park at the corner of Pearl Street and Fulton Street, is a formally accessioned artifact in the collection of the South Street Seaport Museum. A memorial created to honor RMS Titanic’s passengers, officers, and crew who perished when the ship sank after collision with an iceberg, the lighthouse was dedicated in 1913, the anniversary of the ship’s sinking.
One of the Museum’s principal restoration goals is careful conservation of exterior and interior lighting to allow for reactivation. The work will also allow for the evaluation of the tower structure tower and its concrete base in order to determine if work is required to ensure its integrity and stability prior to needed repairs, cleaning and painting. Finally, the selected firm will work with the Museum to develop appropriate signage for this precious public art and memorial artifact.
Scope of services includes schematic design, design development, Landmarks Preservation Commission approval, construction documents, bidding, construction administration, and closeout.
Proposals are due no later than January 6, 2023 by 5pm EST. To download the RFP and associated documentation, please click below.
