Dundee V&A granted planning permission
August 13 2013V&A at Dundee, clearing the way for the issue of tender notices.
Work to deliver the Kengo Kuma designed international centre of design has already begun with the infilling of Craig Harbour with demolition material from the former Maxweltown multis and Tayside House.
Work to demolish the Olympia swimming pool will commence next month, clearing the way for construction to commence by summer 2014 in order to complete by 2016 – in time to play a key role should the city win UK City of Culture 2017.
Philip Long, director of V&A at Dundee, said: “The V&A at Dundee team has been working on detailed plans to translate the outline design into a construction model, and that work is now almost complete. The project is entering a new phase, where within the next few months people will begin to see evidence of V&A at Dundee coming into being.
“Kengo Kuma's fabulous design will give Dundee and Scotland a wonderful space to enjoy outstanding international exhibitions, and to learn about and get involved with Scotland’s remarkable history of design creativity. I believe it will attract visitors from across the world.”
