Barr began work in August on a £23.5m contract to refurbish the building, part of a wider £60m development that will see it become home to both a museum and a sports centre.

Around 30 contracts are still available to subcontractors and interested businesses are invited to attend a ‘meet the buyer’ event next week. It takes place from 4pm to 8pm on Thursday 13th November at the Mitchell Library, Glasgow Room, North Street, Glasgow.

Barr representatives will be available to discuss the contracts available, which range from construction to fit-out, interior to exterior and from plastering to catering.

Barr Construction managing director Barclay Chalmers said: “The Kelvin Hall is a significant building in the city and the redevelopment is an extremely important project for Barr Construction.

“We want local people to benefit from this project and we look forward to hearing the local supply chain coming forward to discussing the possibilities of working with us to deliver this first class facility.”

There is no fee for attending the meeting but registration is advised. For more information or to register interest, go to
