Paisley Museum Reimagined Project – Multi-Disciplinary Design Team.
The procurement is for an (architect-led) Multidisciplinary Design Team (MDDT) for the 42m GBP extension, renovation and refurbishment of Paisley Museum. The aim of Paisley Museum Re-Imagined project is to provide a visitor experience of international quality, which tells the inspirational stories of Paisley, its heritage and its pattern. The transformation of the Paisley Museum is underpinned by a series of high-level strategic project aims that will turn it into a:
— Leading European museum – telling the story of Paisley as a pattern and a town,
— Visitor destination drawing its audience from Scotland, UK and overseas,
— Platforming institution for learning, skills development, innovation and research,
— Community resource at the heart of Paisley’s local life.
The (architect-led) Multidisciplinary Design Team will be responsible for designing a High Street-facing extension to deliver a bold new café, shop and reception, to resolve the current building’s problematic vertical circulation, remove accretions and reinstate public areas, renew the services and refurbish the buildings. The refurbished and extended Museum cannot be a modest municipal makeover and will have to punch above its weight in order to attract visitors from further afield whilst maintaining a sense of ownership for the local communities and to do justice to Paisley’s radical reputation. The project represents an exciting opportunity to alter and extend a fine neo-Classical building to respond to a unique collection, history and to deliver a fully 21st-century facility that places the visitor at its heart.
The architect-led Multidisciplinary Design Team (MDDT) will deliver the following services from RIBA Stage 2 to 6:
— Architect (lead consultant),
— Structural Engineer,
— Building Services Engineer,
