The University of Leicester is looking for an architect to repair and upgrade the roof and glazed-wall structure of its famous Stirling and Gowan-designed Engineering building
More from: Obituary: James Gowan (1923 – 2015)
Part of Stirling’s ‘red triptych’, the Grade II*-listed faculty building has suffered from water ingress and poor insulation and requires ‘sustainability improvements’ to make it fit to last the next 50 years. John Fothergill, Department of Engineering head, said: ‘Upgrading the glass should make the roof more sustainable and will ensure that the building retains this distinguishing feature.’
The deadline for receipt of tenders is 7 April.
