Tennents T off Wellpark Brewery expansion and re-clad
December 8 2016roof extension, re-clad and internal alterations to improve visitor facilities and bring the historic brewery into the 21st century.
The expanded premises will be used to showcase archive materials currently in storage as part of a public display chronicling the history of the company as well as new events spaces.
ZM Architecture have been commissioned to oversee the transformation, centerpiece of which will be ‘The Tennent’s Story’ – an interactive exhibit of artifacts, videos and digital technology developed by The Creative Cell and Glasgow School of Art’s digital design team.
A second phase of work will see the existing premises extended and re-skinned using perforated anodized or bronzed aluminium mesh panels to give the ‘illusion of a veil set off from the solidity of the concrete frame’.
In a statement ZM said: “This second phase would define a new vision, a new venue and a fitting conclusion to the tours and a 'Statement of Pride' in the business. The gold mesh is a reference to the golden hue of the beer and Tennent’s own livery.”
First phase works including the visitor centre and improvements to the current tour experience are scheduled to complete next summer.
