TJL wins Construction Award of Excellence

Renfrewshire-based Thomas Johnstone Ltd scooped the Best Building Contractor prize at last week’s awards ceremony in London.

Specialist fit-out contractor Thomas Johnstone Ltd (TJL) received the Scottish Building Contractor of the Year Award at the Construction Awards of Excellence in London.

The Construction Awards of Excellence, an independent competition from the National Federation of Builders, recognises the best companies and projects throughout the UK construction industry. TJL was named the winner of this prestigious award by a panel of expert judges.

Celebrating its 155th anniversary this year, TJL was founded in Glasgow in 1868 and has grown steadily into the £70m+ business it is today. The Specialist Fit-Out contractor won the prestigious award based on their reputation for delivering excellence and providing exceptional quality as main contractors on impressive projects, including the recently completed construction and fit-out of the Virgin Hotel, Edinburgh.

The brand’s first hotel to open outside of the USA, the Virgin Hotel Edinburgh, the project involved the careful refurbishment of a mixture of Listed Buildings on a tight site within the UNESCO Edinburgh Old and New Towns World Heritage Site. As well as restoration and refurbishment, the project included constructing a new build wing occupying a tight position that maximised the site location.

David Haddow, Joint MD, remarked, “We are honoured to have been recognised within the industry with this national award. TJL is dedicated to delivering excellence in every project we undertake. Seeing our team’s efforts acknowledged by the judging panel, especially during this historic year for our company, is gratifying.

The Virgin Hotel, Edinburgh, is our largest project completed to date and is a testament to our team’s unwavering quality and diligence shown during the construction and fit-out of this new luxury hotel.”

With this latest award, TJL continues establishing itself as a Scottish construction industry leader. The company looks forward to continuing to deliver excellence to its clients and contributing to the growth and success of the industry.
