Scottish National Gallery launches search for £9 million revamp

The National Galleries of Scotland has begun the search for an architect-led team for the ‘revitalisation’ of the Scottish National Gallery and its Mound site in Edinburgh

The £9 million scheme will double the display area for Scottish art inside the Galley as part of a programme to develop it into a ‘centre for the study of Scottish Art’.

The appointed team will also be asked to improve visitor facilities and circulation through the complex, creating access from the Gallery’s precinct to gardens level.

Reducing the Gallery’s ‘carbon footprint’ and increase in its sustainability credentials will also be required.

The contract is due to begin 4 April with completion on site set for June 2018. A full brief and other documents are available upon expressing interest in the tender.

A shortlist of six will be invited to tender following PQQ submissions. Documents will be available until 6 January through the allocated page with completed PQQs due 9 January 2014.
