The Royal Alberta Museum (RAM) is a museum of human and natural history. Q4 Architects was retained by the exhibit contractor, Kubik, to act as the Architect of Record and Coordinating Professional for the interior gallery fit-out for the 5 feature galleries of the museum: Children’s Gallery, Bugs Gallery, Human History Gallery, Natural History Gallery and the Manitou Stone Gallery. As Architect of Record, Q4’s primary role was to translate the gallery design drawings into an intent-based set of drawings for the purposes of obtaining jurisdiction approval (building permit) which included coordination of Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing scopes of work alongside Smith + Anderson consulting engineers . Central to this effort was working closely with LMDG Building Code consultants, to ensure the gallery fit-out was completed in accordance with the Alberta Building Code.
