Design team hopefuls assemble for £66m Burrell project
September 25 2015£66m contract to overhaul Glasgow’s Burrell Collection, Urban Realm understands.
Architects are being sought by Glasgow Life to remodel and refurbish the existing museum as part of project manager led bids, which necessitate teaming up with a quantity surveyor to qualify.
The full make-up of these teams is still to be confirmed but it is believed they include Gardiner & Theobald with McAslan & Partners as well as Faithful & Gould who have teamed up with Purcell Architects.
Other collaborations believed to be in the mix include Turned & Townsend who have paired up with Rieach & Hall and RLF who have assembled Stallan-Brand, Elder & Cannon and Dress for the Weather.
One practice notable by its absence is Page\Park who are understood to be preoccupied with their work to bring the Glasgow School of Art back to life.
The winning team will be tasked with installing a new roof and high performance glazing to stem damaging leaks at the cultural attraction. Work will also see construction of two additional floors of exhibition space and a remodelling of basement storerooms to open them up for public access.
