The National Capital Commission (NCC) in Ottawa is inviting landscape architects, urban designers and other related design professionals to form design teams to respond to a request for qualifications (RFQ) for a project that will see the redevelopment of Nepean Point, one of the most spectacular lookouts in Canada’s Capital.

The project involves transforming the space into a lively, 21st century green space using innovative design and an improved landscape while also updating the site to meet universal accessibility standards. In addition, multi-use recreational pathways are needed to connect cultural institutions in order to create a continuous promenade from the Rideau Canal to Rideau Falls Park.

The two stage competition process requires all RFQs to be submitted by March 31, 2017. Each team must be led by a landscape architect who is eligible to be licensed to work in the province.

The winner of the competition will be announced as part of Canada’s 150th anniversary celebrations.
