George Square, Taken in January 2021, Glasgow City Council has recommended that John Maxlan & Co. award the design contract for the George Square District Project, also known as Block C for the £ 115m downtown program. The work is funded through the Glasgow City Area Deal. The tender attracted 91 expressions of interest and 17 requests, with a shortlist of seven teams finalized on quality and price parameters prior to selecting John McAslan & Partners with a score of 92.39%. There will now be a 10-day downtime before the project design contract is awarded. The project focuses on developing a new design for George Square, Glasgow’s major civic and cultural space. The George Square District Strategy project will also include George Street and St. Vincent / Place Avenues, as well as John Street, Dundas Street and the Dundas Line, and a new pedestrian link from Queen Street Station to Argyle Street, passing through the square, Hanover Street and Miller Street. The contract award worth £ 2.293 million sees a consultant and multidisciplinary team be appointed to provide design services in full phases according to RIBA Phases 0 through 4 (Technical Design Preparation). The team will also provide ongoing design and technical support during RIBA 5-7 phases, which cover the construction period. Construction work is scheduled to begin shortly after the UCI Cycling World Championships in the summer of 2023. The design strategy will also take into account the findings of the 2019 public consultation on the arena’s future. The project will also look to develop connectivity between George Square and Queen Street Station, with adequate public transportation, active travel facilities and infrastructure. The scope of work for the project will be determined as the design process progresses, with details developing through an additional analysis process and public engagement with stakeholder groups.
