Bespoke joinery, fit out and build works: Elmwood
The aptly named HUB building is located at the very heart of the University of Glasgow campus, providing students with a place to congregate whether to read, study, eat or relax. So when it was being redeveloped in 2009, interior designers Nomad sought an integrated approach to its range of student services.
Using an oak ribbon throughout, the vision was to tie one area seamlessly with the next. On hand to provide the bespoke elements was Elmwood – a task that involving detailed drawing and setting out ahead of manufacture and on-site installation.
Our involvement in the new-look HUB building didn’t stop there. In partnership with Page & Park Architects we also provided some of the build works including main entrance panelling, kitchens and storage cupboards.
“It has been an absolute pleasure to work with Elmwood for the first time on this project.
St Enoch Fit Out was particularly challenging due to logistics and restrictions due to Covid but Elmwood and the rest of the team rose to the challenge and delivered a first-class cinema with minimal fuss. Organization, attention to detail and willingness to work along side a well-established team meant that we delivered one of the best cinemas we have completed.”
