Hub deal for construction firm
Kier secures contract for Paisley Town Hall revamp
Impression of how Paisley Town Hall will look
A contract to redevelop historic Paisley Town Hall has been awarded to Kier Regional Building Scotland.
The company has been appointed by hub West Scotland, delivery partner for Renfrewshire Council, to carry out the pre-construction phase of the £22m transformation of the 19th-century building into a modern facility which will help safeguard the historic venue’s future.
The redevelopment work will allow the Town Hall to host a broader range of events as well as improving the performance facilities and visitor experience, including new catering and conference facilities, better physical access, and improved mechanical and electrical systems.
Kier Regional Building is currently working on the refurbishment of the Burrell Museum and has just completed the technically complex redevelopment of Scotland’s oldest concert venue, Aberdeen Music Hall.
Brian McQuade, managing director of Kier Regional Building Scotland, said: “We are pleased to work with Renfrewshire Council, operators Renfrewshire Leisure and hub West Scotland as we help to protect and transform Paisley Town Hall into a modern, vibrant venue. Activity will see a wealth of improvements for performers and visitors alike.”
Work is due to start on-site in early 2020 and be completed by the end of 2021.
