To repair the damage caused by the devastating fire which took place in May, the Glasgow School of Art is searching for an architectural team to carry out the restoration of Charles Rennie Mackintosh‘s historic building.

Following public support for restoration instead of a contemporary reinterpretation, the plan is to return the building to its original condition over a construction period of five years.

The school is currently in the process of raising $32mn for the restoration, in addition to the $8mn pledged by both the Scottish Government and UK Government. A temporary roof has just been installed over the structure to protect it from the winter weather.

The school is currently talking to architect-led teams, which must also include at least one structural engineer and one mechanical and engineering consultant.

Those who wish to register their interest must do so before 10 November.
