Opportunity Description:

The Town of Banff is seeking conceptual design services proposals from an accredited Professional Landscape Architectural Consultant (the ‘Proponent’) for the design, artist renderings and general arrangement design of streetscape improvements for: 

a. A shared street or woonerf* (scheduled for construction in 2019), including intersections at Wolf Street and Caribou Street. 

b. Extending the pedestrian enhancements into the rear lane between Bear Street and Banff Ave, from Wolf Street to Caribou Street. 

c. Extension of Banff Refreshing Sidewalk widening, seating and landscaped areas in lieu of existing parking areas on: 

i. Wolf Street between Banff Avenue and Marten Street (not yet scheduled for construction). 

ii. Caribou Street between Banff Avenue and Bear Street (not yet scheduled for construction). 

* Woonerfs are streets built with high quality urban design where the boundary between people space and car space is 
intentionally blurred. In doing so, the pedestrian space is extended from the sidewalk and into the traffic zone. Whereas in a normal street, pedestrians are made to feel like guests in the cars space when they cross the street, woonerfs reverse this axiom. By designing high quality urban spaces, drivers moving through a woonerf are made to feel like guests and modify their behavior accordingly.
