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.
“With Phase 1 we had a traditional build tenement style contract which sold out very early thanks to positive feedback on quality. Phase 2 was more complex in construction but retained the element of quality finish which was so important for purchaser satisfaction.”
