Muirfield Golf Club Completion

We are thrilled to announce the completion of the clubhouse and starter’s accommodation at the Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers, Muirfield. This project consisted of a new build extension and extensive refurbishment throughout the iconic clubhouse plus a new build of the starter’s accommodation. This highly anticipated project was completed in phases, to ensure the clubhouse remained open at all times to members and visitors.

As the Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers celebrate their 275 year history, Thomas Johnstone Ltd feels privileged to have developed the facilities at this renowned establishment.

Paslode Nail Gun Training

Another productive morning here at TJL’s 30,000 sq.ft factory as our team took part in a training course for Paslode Nail Guns to provide safe operating skills and knowledge to those who will be working with the guns.

The Paslode Nail Gun course consists of both theory and practical sessions which include the legal responsibilities and requirements, hazards and identification of causes, misfire procedure, safe work area requirements and the correct tool and accessories to use when working with the guns (including Personal Protective Equipment). All attendees from our factory thoroughly enjoyed learning the purpose and effectiveness of this tool which they will now safely utilise on future projects.

Many thanks to Brandon Hire Station
for the delivery of the training.



Launch of Bo & Birdy Restaurant

After much anticipation we are thrilled to announce the opening of Bo & Birdy, the new dining and drinking sensation located in the Blythswood Square Hotel, Glasgow. Under the culinary guidance of Scotland’s first female 5-star hotel Executive Head Chef, Gillian Matthews, Bo & Birdy is a modern brasserie with traditional Scottish influence. The phrase “Farm to Fabulous” defines this immersive drinking and dining experience and Thomas Johnstone Ltd was privileged to undertake the fit out of this new hospitality haven.

From the feature lighting in the main dining area to the individually hand crafted terracotta fish scale tiles which envelop the bar, the intricate details and attention to detail on this project, like every other, is what makes Bo & Birdy a true dining experience in the most sensational setting.

Having a long standing relationship with this iconic hotel, we are delighted to further deepen our association with Bo & Birdy and we are certain it is going to be Glasgow’s most sought after dinner reservation.

First Year Joinery Apprentice Attends SkillBuild 2019

A massive well done to our first year Joinery apprentice Jack Green who was nominated by his college to take part in this year’s UK-wide SkillBuild competition hosted at City of Glasgow College, a project in which we undertook general, bespoke and specialist joinery in 2017 (as seen in the image below).

Jack was one of two students nominated by New College Lanarkshire to attend yesterday’s event in which 17 trainee joiners had their skills put to the test. All of us at TJL are extremely proud of Jack and await the same success for him again next year when he returns to the competition!
