Architect sought for Russell Institute revamp

Renfrewshire Council is seeking an architect to overhaul the Category A-listed Russell Institute in Paisley, Scotland

The £2.5 million project will transform the Abercrombie and Maitland-designed paediatric clinic into new offices and a community space.

Glasgow-based Elder and Cannon Architects has already completed a feasibility study for the 1,800m² regeneration scheme.

The iconic building on New Street and Causeyside Street opened in 1927 as a monument to brothers Thomas Russell and Robert Russell. Featuring bronze and stone sculptures, the distinctive three-storey structure was a used as a child welfare centre before closing in 2011.

Skills Development Scotland will occupy the new offices while a ground floor community space will become a base for volunteer group Paisley Development Trust.

Construction work is expected to start this summer and complete within two years.

The deadline for requests to participate is 6 May.
