Contractor sought for £35m fire-ravaged Mackintosh revamp

  • Comment

Glasgow School of Art has officially launched the reconstruction programme for the Mackintosh Building - a project which could be worth as much as £35million

The School of Art is now looking to appoint a principal contractor to work with architects Page\Park on the rebuild of Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s masterpiece, which was badly damaged in a fire in May 2014 and is now currently out of use.

Work on the 1909 Art Nouveau landmark will commence in June 2016, with the school aiming to return the building to full use for the academic year beginning Autumn 2018.

In total, the scheme is expected to be worth between £25million and £35million.

Following a two-stage tendering approach, the appointment of a contractor will be made under a single contract arrangement, with all other services being employed through a sub-contract arrangement where necessary.

Sir Robert McAlpine won the first phase of the GSA’s campus revamp in 2011, although the Mackintosh Building was not included as part of these works.
