CBC to undertake £4.5m Russell Institute revamp
March 27 2015
The former health centre has lain empty since 2011 before the local authority acquired it with a view to turning the historic building into a training and employment hub.
Renfrewshire Council Leader Mark Macmillan said: “The Russell Institute is one of the jewels in Paisley’s architectural crown and has been one of the most distinctive buildings in the town centre for the best part of a century.
“We are thrilled to have been able to pull together a deal to bring it back to life and are glad the project is moving forward as planned.
“Paisley town centre has the second-highest concentration of listed buildings of anywhere in Scotland and we are committed to keeping them alive for future generations.”
Refurbishment works are expected to take around a year to complete.
