Cost of rebuilding Glasgow School of Art could top £100 million

North of England Correspondent

The cost of rebuilding Glasgow’s much loved School of Art could be at least £100m, experts say – describing the damage caused by Friday’s fire as “overwhelming”.

Channel 4 News approached the company carrying out the restoration work at the Mackintosh building – Kier – to ask about the sprinkler system. In a statement they said they are working closely with the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service in their investigation and as such “it would be inappropriate to comment further”.
