Bespoke joinery and fit out: Elmwood
Thurso’s historic Town Hall has long been a much-loved landmark on the Caithness horizon, and in 2007 a £4m redevelopment project was undertaken to breathe new life into the Victorian building. The vision? A multi-purpose community, visitor and information centre with museum.
Nominated for the full interior fit out, Elmwood manufactured and installed the plinths and all associated museum set works, the module Q-system frames for graphics and lighting, main reception desk, retail areas and food servery, along with coordinating the supply of the museum quality display cases.
“As a main contractor, Elmwood successfully managed all sub contractors and ensured a high standard of workmanship. Very quickly we formed good relations with the Elmwood site staff, from contracts management to the men on the ground, joiners, brickies, labourers all of whom became part of the family.”
