We worked harmoniously with main contractor Sir Robert McAlpine and other contractors over a 40 week period to assist in the delivery of the new City of Glasgow College – City Campus building.
We undertook 3 different joinery packages: general joinery, bespoke joinery and specialist joinery. These 3 joinery packages ranged in scope from high level atrium panels to doors to bespoke reception desks; each in turn completed to an exceptionally high quality of finish.
Works were undertaken within the large 10 storey campus building, with circa 12,500m of timber skirtings fitted along with over 1,100 doors. We had to work together with other trades to ensure that the building was complete in time for the students to start.
A unique element of the project which caused complexities was the high level atrium American White Oak Panels as well as the stair wall panels, stair treads and hanging stair panels. We ‘bled Scotland dry’ of American White Oak due to the amount of panels that were installed within the City Campus! Our team had to work within tight constraints, 7 storeys high on a crash deck scaffold to install the atrium panels, which is a feature of the City Campus atrium.
We were also commissioned to install various bespoke and specialist joinery items including reception desks, mirrored wall panels, feature hanging ceiling units, coffee/tea prep units and Lamelle metal mesh panels within the canteen area.
During the project our team built rooms, decks and various other mock ups to mirror real life construction scenarios. These were constructed within the Construction hall to enable apprentice students to learn the tools of the trade within a controlled working environment.
Our collective efforts delighted the client and the project is a fantastic showcase of the skills of our manufacturing and specialist fit-out teams.
