City of Glasgow College

3 different joinery packages (general, bespoke and specialist) for the City Campus Project, with works ranging from high level atrium panels to reception desks to doors

Works were undertaken within the brand new 10 storey campus building where we installed high level atrium American White Oak panels as well as stair wall panels, stair treads and hanging stair panels. Our team had to work within tight constraints, 7 stories high on a crash deck scaffold to install the atrium panels – a feature of the City Campus atrium. In addition, we installed a variety of bespoke and specialist joinery items including reception desks, mirror wall panels, feature hanging ceiling units, coffee/tea prep units and Lamelle metal mesh panels. Circa 12,500m of timber skirtings and more than 1,100 doors were fitted.

TJL also built mock up rooms, decks and various other mock ups to mirror real life construction scenarios. These were created within the Construction hall to enable apprentice students to learn the tools of the trade within a controlled working environment.

This project was completed successfully, despite its complexity and the extent of the works. Our team delivered exceptional quality finishes throughout and effectively worked together with other trades to ensure that the building was complete in time to welcome the College’s students.
