Client: University of Glasgow
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.
“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.”
