Competition: Shettleston Halls, Glasgow

Shettleston Hall
  • Comment

Shettleston Housing Association is looking for an architect to create 32 homes inside two disused buildings in east Glasgow

The team will transform the abandoned Shettleston Halls and a nearby former telephone exchange into a range of affordable homes.

The £3.9 million project will create 20 residential units inside the Thomas Gilchrist Gilmour-designed 1922 hall, which was wrecked by fire nine years ago. The single-storey telephone exchange on the corner of Wellshot Road and Pettigrew Street will meanwhile be converted into 12 dwellings.

The housing association says that ‘subject to external factors such as planning, it is envisaged site works will commence in late 2017 or early 2018. The design stage of the project is planned to commence immediately upon conclusion of the procurement of consultants to achieve the site start dates identified above.’

Shettleston Housing Association was set up in 1976 to provide affordable housing, and today manages around 2,300 homes in Shettleston, Springboig and South Greenfield. Elder and Cannon won the RIAS Andrew Doolan prize seven years ago with a new headquarters for the organisation.

The latest project focuses on the disused Shettleston Halls located a short walk from Shettleston Housing Association’s landmark headquarters. The redbrick building was constructed as a public hall in 1925 but was destroyed by fire in 2008, leaving just the façade which is supported by steel beams.

Since 2014 the building – which was created as a pair with the neighbouring public library – was placed on Scotland’s buildings at risk register.

The refurbishment contract is divided into four lots covering architecture, civil and structural engineering, quantity surveying and principal designers services.

Interested bidders must have held a minimum general yearly turnover of at least £350,000 over the last three years. Employer’s liability insurance of £10 million, public liability insurance worth £5 million and professional indemnity insurance of £5 million will also be required.

The deadline for applications is 12noon on 13 November.
