Museum of Science and Technology

The Museum lets visitors experience science and technology first-hand, as they discover artifact-rich exhibitions featuring marine and land transportation, communications, Space, computer technology as well as many unique objects from its national collection.

The renovated Museum is a technological wonder with stunning audio-visual and hands-on exhibits for people of all ages.  Davidson Violette is quite proud of their contribution to this project, and had a hand in many of the pieces that drive the technology.

Most of the exterior and interior Audio-Visual systems were designed by Davidson Violette, including the remarkable LED canopy and the blended projection images that greet all visitors on entering. 

Contracted by Pomerleau, we were also responsible to install and implement an optical fiber cable plant, Passive Optical LAN, and wireless networks to support the myriad of technologies on display.

Davidson Violette partnered with Panduit for the cable plant, and installed over 500 singlemode fibers both inside and outside the Museum.  For the networking, Tellabs and Ruckus Wireless were deployed.  Tellabs provides enterprise-grade POL systems offering advanced network functionality that is optimized for connectivity across buildings and campuses.

John Davidson notes that "We are quite proud of our contribution to this extensive undertaking. and are very excited to have had an opportunity to be part of retrofitting this historical Ottawa landmark.  It was a very challenging project scheduled in a very small window."
