GSA seeks architect-led design team for Mackintosh restoration
The Glasgow School of Art has issued a call for an architect-led design team to oversee restoration of the Mackintosh Building following a devastating fire back in May.

A multi-disciplinary team comprising of an architect, structural engineer and mechanical and engineering consultants is being sought as a minimum to bring the building back into business as a fully functioning art, architecture and design school. 

Douglas Anderson, estates development project manager at the GSA, said: “The Mackintosh Building is studied in architecture departments across the globe as an example of almost unmatched design with generations of architects inspired by Mackintosh’s masterpiece. The chance to lead the restoration of this truly iconic building is a once in a life time opportunity and we are anticipating that there will be significant interest from design teams in the UK and beyond.”

Expressions of interest should be received by 12:00 on 10 November via Public Contracts Scotland. Shortlisted teams will then be invited to submit a full tender with a design team being chosen by spring 2015.
