Sanctuary Housing Group is seeking an architect for a residential-led redevelopment of Glasgow’s disused Victoria Infirmary
The winner of the estimated £1 million contract will draw up plans for 400 homes on the 4ha Southside site.
The project is expected to include a mix of new build homes and new apartments created inside the Grade B-listed hospital.
Sanctuary purchased the landmark complex from NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde earlier this month.
The housing association plans to deliver a range of homes for first-time buyers, families and older people on the prominent site where several historic buildings will be retained.
The former teaching hospital on Langside Road first opened in 1890, and featured an accident and emergency department, a general surgery unit and 370 ward beds.
The complex was designed by Campbell Douglas & Sellars, who won a competition for the scheme in 1888, and originally comprised two pavilions and a central administration block.
More recently, inpatient and A&E services were relocated to IBI Group’s new Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Govan, and the Victoria Infirmary closed in May last year.
Applicants for the new scheme must have an annual turnover of at least £1 million and £5 million worth of professional indemnity insurance.
Documents must be accessed by 12 noon on 12 September, and the deadline for applications is 12 noon on 16 September.
