Mack fire investigation enters a new phase
February 14 2020
The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service have opened a new phase in their investigation into a devastating blaze at the Mackintosh Building.
Forensic investigators have requested access to the entirety of the south side of the building from Dalhousie Street to beyond the museum for 24 weeks.
The arrival of a crane will signify the start of works with contractor Reigart installing conveyors to remove debris under the supervision of GSA staff and fire officials.
Throughout this period Renfrew Street will remain closed to through traffic and increased vehicle movements will be necessary to transfer rubble off-site.
In a statement, the school wrote: “The Glasgow School of Art would like to thank local residents, students and staff for their continued understanding as we undertake the work which is necessary for the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service to continue their ongoing investigative work.”
24-hour manned security will remain in place at all times.
