With a 30 year lease now in place The Pipe Factory is delighted to announce that work is starting on the first phase of the development, to make extensive repairs and replacements to both the buildings roof and windows. Following a £360,000 capital grant from both Glasgow City Council and Glasgow City Heritage Trust, with bridging finance awarded by The Architectural Heritage Fund, the proceeds are being used to make the building wind and watertight with a view to removing the Grade B listed building from the Buildings at Risk Register.
We have worked extensively with our design team 40 Osbourne (a combination of INCH and Marc Kilkenny Architecture), Armours (quantity surveyors) and Design ID (structural engineers) over the last few months to bring the plans to fruition. The contract work will be primarily carried out by both Archibald McCorquodale & Son Ltd and Timber and Lime Conservation Ltd in regards to the roof and windows respectively.
