Project - Westerwood Hotel
"We were happy to work with Thomas Johnstone again for the major refurbishment and extension project at Westerwood Hotel. It was carried out over five phases to ensure that we remained trading. We appreciate the difficulties of this, however TJL managed extremely well, and tailored their approach to ensure minimal disruption throughout and clean handovers."

Martin Cotter, Graven Images
Project - BBC Scotland, Pacific Quay
"Thomas Johnstone worked with us, along with the technical and sound engineers, to ensure that the Dubbing Theatres were just a bit special. The BBC is very pleased with the outcome as the best studios in Scotland. The Reception exhibits were ambitious but the many challenges were overcome by the team, with invaluable technical input to the design development from Thomas Johnstone."

Robert Carlisle, Hilton Project Manager

"Thomas Johnstone carried out works within the hotel, with minimal disruption, and a positive approach ensuring that both our own staff and our own customers were not affected by the works. A contractor that will go the extra mile to ensure such a smooth project is a breath of fresh air."

Project - Strathclyde University, Lord Hope Building
"Thomas Johnstone’s proactive approach to the job was a “breath of fresh air”. I am extremely impressed with the attention to detail, the resource provided in managing the job and the fact that snagging was closed out and additional works requested were carried out with no problems. I am extremely happy with their performance and finished product."

John Maskell, Hotel Du Vin
Project - Hotel Du Vin
"Thomas Johnstone worked hard to ensure that we got a hotel we are delighted with. Keeping the client and their design team happy, as well as the surrounding businesses and residents, whilst managing the large number of suppliers and subcontractors, was carried out professionally and effectively by the whole team. Thomas Johnstone listens and understand their clients' needs and will always go the extra mile, and we would be delighted to work with them again. "

Willie Shaw, MACE
Project - RBS Gogarburn
"TJ’s was awarded this job because of their reputation and track record. Their early involvement during the procurement period developed details that were more cost effective while not jeopardising the architect’s aesthetical expectations. They delivered the project in a style rarely found within today’s industry providing a superior and professional service, with exceptional workmanship quality both insitu and from their factory. We wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them and will definitely be using TJ’s in the near future."

David Wither, Montpeliers (Edinburgh) Limited
Project - Tigerlily
"The creation of our “flagship” development posed a unique set of challenges for the Montpelier group, and we needed to have a contractor on board who would work with us to provide a totally innovative venue of outstanding quality, whilst adhering to tight budget and programme constraints. Our previous excellent working relationship with Thomas Johnstone Ltd led to us entrusting them with the delivery of “Tiger Lily and Lulu Nightclub” on a negotiated basis. We are absolutely delighted with the outcome, and the pro- active attitude and service levels experienced throughout the contract. We look forward to working with TJL again on a future occasion."
