Façade ‘appears to be structurally solid’
The Mac’s façade appears to be “structurally solid” according to initial assessments made from the street, the leader of Glasgow council has said.
Susan Aitken said it looked like what was left of the Mackintosh Building after the weekend’s devastating fire could be saved.
“We are certainly not writing off the Mackintosh building yet,” she said in an interview with BBC Radio Scotland.
Her optimistic view runs counter to early suggestions that the heat from the blaze plus the gallons of water sprayed by the fire brigade might have damaged the walls so badly the building would have to be demolished.
