Glasgow School of Art will be rebuilt

The good news is that that Mackintosh Building at Glasgow School of Art will be rebuilt.


Model of Glasgow School of Art - Mackintosh Building
Below is essentially a summary of what's being reported elsewhere following the announcement by Tom Inns, the School's Director on Tuesday.
  1. “We’re going to rebuild the Mackintosh building." - but part of it is unstable and will be dismantled
  2. Building was insured and rebuild costs will be covered by insurers
  3. c.50% fixtures and fittings were in storage at time of fire
  4. A detailed digital model was developed as part of the work done after the last fire. This now provides an immense amount of data about every aspect of the building and how things were
  5. The process of dismantling the building and removing dangerously unstable sections began on Tuesday afternoon
  6. Kier Construction has now "concluded its relationship with the art school". Their statement that adequate fire safety strategy was in place has been 'professionally checked" by school
  7. An ongoing investigation by the Scottish fire and rescue service will determine what really happened to start the second fire - and why it burned out the entire school.

  1. That really is good news. I hope that our artists in Bridport will get similar results. Artists studios at St Michaels centre in Brudport were burned out last week and all their work and equipment destroyed. There USA fund raiser ongoing on Fb to help them. I know how deverstated I would be .
