Moving glass wall for WH Malcolm Glasgow

Moving glass wall for WH Malcolm Glasgow

When the Malcolm group contacted us, asking if we could advise them in replacing a balustrade for a glass wall, in the Donald Malcolm Heritage Centre just south of Glasgow we were keen to get to know the place.

The Heritage Centre was built by Andrew and Walter Malcolm in memory of their father, Donald Malcolm. Donald started the company in the early twenties  with a single horse and cart. It was a small family-run business that collected coal from the railway station and distributed it around the local area. Today the Malcolm Group is a large logistic services company active in road and rail transport, warehousing, and terminal management. 

A great place for truck lovers and petrol heads!

Movable Glass Wall Glasgow

The beautifully made balustrade that had to be replaced with glass was an excellent example of craftsmanship, but it unfortunately meant that the whole museum had to be heated when the meeting room was in use. At the same time Malcolm wanted to maintain the open connection between the meeting hall and the exhibition centre.

The removable wall starts left from the entrance door in the picture above or right in the picture below.

Our fit out team were excited at the prospect of working in this great environment and also the photographer (a diesel head himself) was chuffed to bits when he learned where he was going. The story of W H Malcolm is inspiring and to have the privilege of working here ticked all the boxes.

Office fit out Edinburgh

Amos Beech has just completed a challenging office fit out in the heart of Edinburgh. The offices of Scottish Salmon needed an upgrade. The Georgian splendour of Edinburgh’s new town always makes for an interesting challenge when our customers require alterations and changes to their offices.

Here we were asked to create an additional cellular office space in Edinburgh and make use of as much glass as possible.

When we carried out our initial survey we discovered an original archway had been plaster boarded up in a previous alteration and we were able to reinstate this with a glass door and adjacent frameless glazing panels.

This in conjunction with the glass wall separating the new office from its adjacent space has given a very bright aspect to a room that could have been very dark as it is right in the centre of the building.

New carpet and a fresh coat of paint have lifted the room in to something much more modern. A bespoke desking solution was selected by the client to provide sufficient storage space and enough primary work space for a busy PA to the Directors, allowing her to carry out her duties efficiently and effectively.
