These photos show the incredible transformation of a disused office building into the new 137 bedroom ibis Styles Glasgow Centre West hotel. As well as the extensive interior fit-out we also completed works to the façade of the building, totally renewing all elevations.
We think people would agree that the completion image closely mirrors the CGI!

This edition focusses on exciting changes within our manufacturing division, the handover of multiple sites which have received excellent feedback and examples of our bespoke work being publicly showcased. Plus, there is a chance to win a bottle of champagne!
As Thomas Johnstone Ltd celebrates its 150th year, our milestone is also shared with the renowned Scottish architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh. To commemorate his incredible work, an exhibit was created at the Mackintosh Club building in Helensburgh for which we manufactured 150 individual roses in the Mackintosh style to hang from the ceiling.
This project is a fabulous example of our manufacturing team’s work as well as a wonderfully artistic and intricate tribute to an acclaimed Scottish designer.
As we conclude our focus on our manufacturing division’s restructuring, we look to the future and our diverse team of employees who will continue to drive our success. Billy Hynes, our much loved Manufacturing Director who retired last month, helped to build the strong foundations of our successful manufacturing division and now the reins have been handed over to Michael Hillman, Manufacturing Manager, and Ross MacLeod, Workshop Manager. Both young managers have already had significant input into driving the division forward, but now they have a chance to work together to bring their vision to life with a brilliant team backing them:
‘’There is more drive than there has ever been. We are all one team - from the guy sweeping the floor all the way up to Michael - we are all working towards the same goal.’’
