The Dare

To obtain approvals and manage the production of a new, 1000 square foot exhibit gallery attached to the Boreal Centre on the actual breeding grounds of boreal birds.

  • The gallery had to effectively enhance the centre’s public outreach program
  • There were only a few months to complete the entire production process

The Outcome

Double Dare worked with Karo Design throughout the design process to communicate final decisions to the exhibit fabrication team. This included over 50 graphic panels and artisanal features, including two dozen bird sculptures, two permanent forest features, and an oversized bird nest seating area.

We also worked shoulder to shoulder with staff from Panther Management during the installation, solving site issues and managing last minute requests prior to the centre’s grand opening.

I have had the pleasure of working with Melanie Greenaway, when she was on contract as a project manager with Panther Constructors, for the Boreal Centre for Bird Conservation Centre interpretive exhibit. This was a major exhibit project and I found her to be a pleasure to work with, quick to respond, and full of creative input. We were under very tight timelines and all components identified were addressed, as indicated in our project timeline. Changes were instituted, and financial implications given for any new components or suggestions. In short, I would not hesitate to recommend her for any project within her areas of expertise and experience.
