Buchanan Galleries is a major shopping centre in the middle of Glasgow city centre. It is owned by Buchanan Partnership, a joint venture between Henderson Global Investors and Land Securities. The Partnership wishes to appoint a main building contractor for the proposed extension and development of the Buchanan Galleries.
The core components that collectively form the basis of the proposed extension and development include:
1. The formation of new retail accommodation over the location of the existing multi-storey car park and above the north cutting to Queen Street Station including the creation of a new multi-screen cinema;
2. The formation of reconfigured and new retail space including the formation of a new structure over the west cutting to Queen Street Station’s suburban line;
3. The creation of a new multi storey car park at Queen Street Station together with retail and catering accommodation, associated mall and atrium space, network rail facilities and a connecting link bridge;
4. A new feature entrance rotunda linking the Royal Concert Hall, Sauchiehall Street and Buchanan Street entrances;
5. Associated public realm works which may include new active ground floor frontages to associated retail units, altered pedestrian/traffic priorities and the promotion of greater links/permeability with the surrounding environment and transport hubs;
6. Alterations to existing shop frontages along with reconfiguration of the existing Buchanan Street pedestrian entrance area;
7. Alterations to a number of existing retail unit layouts and mall configurations as well as potential relocation of management areas and back of house service provisions;
8. A programme of initiatives that seek to refresh and re-launch the external façade by introducing active retail frontages, new lighting and re-branding; and
9. A comprehensive refurbishment/refreshing of the existing internal mall and back of house facilities.
The detail of the proposals is still evolving and will be developed prior to the issue of the Invitation to Tender. It is anticipated that the construction value will be in the range of GBP 150 – 230 Million Pounds Sterling.
The appointment of a main building contractor is being conducted pursuant to this voluntary OJEU contract notice. This is being conducted so as to demonstrate best value to Glasgow City Council in respect of funding towards enabling public realm and other public infrastructure works, which are being funded by the Council as part of the Buchanan Quarter TIF Scheme. For the avoidance of doubt, Buchanan Partnership is not acting on behalf of or as an agent of Glasgow City Council in this procurement.
