The Glasgow School of Art (GSA) is 1 of Europe’s leading independent university-level institutions for the visual creative disciplines. Its studio-based, specialist, practice-led learning and research draws talented individuals with a shared passion for visual culture and creative production from all over the world.
On this basis — and following a feasibility exercise conducted in October/ November 2015 (see Appendix A) the GSA submitted an offer of purchase and is now the ‘preferred bidder’ for the Stow Building, with negotiations ongoing and progressing positively at the time of publish of the Contract Notice.
The overall objective of Phase 0 is to carry out the adaptation and refurbishment of the existing Stow College Building to provide suitable teaching, learning and support facilities, principally for the GSA’s School of Fine Art (SoFA), for the commencement of use in September 2017 (Phase O). Please note that Phase 0 does not include for any works to the fifth floor or roof, which the GSA are currently reviewing for inclusion within Phase 1.
The city centre site, although on the edge of a conservation area, is well-positioned logistically. Located in close proximity to the M8 motorway, the site benefits from excellent transport links. The building is situated on c. 3 acres of land, with a large car parking facility that could be useful to the Main Contractor to manage Welfare and materials during the programme of Works.
GSA is seeking to appoint a Main Contractor to complete the Works.
