Client: Glasgow School of Art
Architects: Glasgow School of Art
Fit out and move management: Elmwood
The iconic Glasgow School of Art had ambition plans to transform nine separate academic buildings into one contemporary urban campus. First though, their priority was to ensure students the best working environment throughout the redevelopment.
Skypark with its high quality studio space and office accommodation was selected as the ideal temporary home, and Elmwood was appointed main contractor taking us into our 10th year of working at the site.
Responsible not just for the fit out of the temporary accommodation but also for the move management of highly specialist plant and equipment, Elmwood ensured a smooth and coordinated move.
“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.”
