Southside Housing Association is on the hunt for a conservation architect for a £2.25 million restoration of Grade A-listed 166 Gorbals Street in Glasgow
The project will create six mid-market apartments and a ground floor community space inside the Salmon and Gillespie Architects-designed 1900 Art Nouveau structure.
Located next to the Citizens Theatre and new housing by Page\Park Architects and Elder & Cannon Architects – the landmark building is thought to be the last surviving tenement in the area.
Originally home to the British Linen Bank, the red sandstone faced structure has been derelict for more than 20 years and was added to Scotland’s ‘heritage at risk register’ after falling into significant disrepair.
According to the contract notice: ‘The building is a landmark of the old Gorbals and the current area; it is highly emotive of both the history and community of this famous part of Glasgow.’
The winning team will develop the scheme from RIBA Stage 2 to 6, engage with local stakeholders and prepare all drawings, specifications, schedules, statutory consents, tenders, tender analysis, cost reports and valuations.
Only firms with a proven track record in delivering grant aided heritage restoration projects are encouraged to apply.
Documents must be requested by 16 February and the deadline for returning tenders is 12noon on 7 March.
