Description of the goods or services required

As part of this Inverclyde Council is examining current provision with a view to considering if the current Watt Library and McLean Museum is a suitable vehicle for service delivery in the 21st century. In order to fulfil the requirements of a modern heritage service, the nineteenth century complex needs to be reassessed with a view to the creation of new spaces, changing the use of some of the current ones and by creating new means of DDA compliant access throughout the building. The feasibility study would test the feasibility of the Council’s aspirations for Inverclyde’s heritage being achieved through the McLean Museum and Art Gallery and the Watt Library.

The purpose of the proposed feasibility study is to evaluate and develop the project to a level that can support a stage 1 HLF bid. The study would initially examine various options from basic remedial building works through to the feasibility of delivering the project’s aspirations through a unified heritage facility of suitable quality and scale within the footprint of the existing building complex. If that is not possible, the study should identify such remodelling and/or extension of the current buildings that would be required to successfully fulfil the project’s aspirations. Other possible changes to the complex that need to be considered are the viability of creating a new high visibility single point entrance and the creation of new learning and enquiry spaces. A vital part of the project’s aims is to make the heritage of Inverclyde available to all and provide the community with opportunities to engage, volunteer and learn new skills.
