Southside Housing Association is looking for an architect capable of transforming recently-acquired Strathbungo bedsits into one-bedroom flats - at a cost of around £400,000.

The contract winner will fit out six buildings in Bowman Street, Calder Stret, Chapman Street, Craigie Street and Allison Street, redesigning the existing interior layout and fitting all necessary plumbing, heating and window features.

The brief for the project specifies that the architects carrying out the work will manage the whole scheme “as if they were being delivered by yourselves in-house”, and the deadline for applications is October 12.

The move is the latest in a series of Pollokshaws housing projects designed to fill shortages in the available stock for single residents.
