Quebec City invites new urban design proposals for urban rivers

The City of Québec has launched a call for tenders to professional services in landscape architecture, urban design and environmental services for the development of an enhancement plan for the four major rivers within the municipal boundaries of the City of Québec, specifically the Cap Rouge, Saint-Charles, Beauport and Montmorency rivers.

The enhancement plan has five components, of which four are to be carried out by the contractor: analysis and synthesis, vision and design criteria, master plan, and definition of the architectural and landscape aesthetic. The fifth component, public consultation, is to be conducted by the City, but could require the ad hoc participation of the contractor.
