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.
“Elmwood and Redman have the creative vision to help us realise our objectives with this ambitious project. They have really gone all out to enable us to meet our deadlines and budget requirements.”
