Subcontractors sought for Kelvin Hall renovation
Barr Construction, main contractor for the first phase of renovation work at Glasgow’s Kelvin Hall, is inviting subcontractors to get on board for a range of internal fit out, exterior and other jobs.

The work will see the former venue transformed by Page\Park architects into a base for Glasgow Museums, Glasgow Sport, the National Library of Scotland and Glasgow University with large environmentally controlled rooms showcasing 1.5m objects currently dispersed at numerous locations around the city.

These will include the only surviving complete suite of interiors by Charles Rennie Mackintosh for Mrs Cranston’s Ingram Street tearooms and the Hunterian Collections - currently on display at Glasgow University.

Elsewhere space will be provided for a conference centre, conservation facilities and teaching space together with a Scottish Screen archive. Sports halls, dance studios and a gym will also be provided with views to the River Kelvin opened up by way of a large picture window in place of the old west entrance.

A new glass pavilion will be built to the north of the building housing a foyer, reception and café.

Suppliers are invited to the Mitchell Library on 13 November between 16:00 and 20:00 to discuss involvement in the project, which should be completed by summer 2016.
