Pendock provides column casings for Castle School canteen refurbishment

Column Casings

Few indoor spaces present a more challenging environment than a school canteen, which was one of the reasons the design team responsible for a far-reaching refurbishment programme, recently completed within ageing premises close to Scotland’s second city, elected to install six bespoke column casings produced by encasement specialist, Pendock Limited. Mearns Castle School, located on Waterfoot Road in Newton Mearns near Glasgow, has undergone a full interior refit as well as other works by Marshall Construction, with Advanced Refurbishment Ltd. the contractor undertaking the installation of the half dozen, laminate column surrounds.

Pendock boosts retail environment at Booths


When an ambitious and enterprising grocer said in 1847 that his aim was “to sell the best goods he could buy in shops staffed with first-class assistants,” it is not perhaps surprising that this philosophy remains at the heart of a business that has survived two wars and several recessions.

Ordinary steel stanchions to support the roof at Booths were simply not … Read More »
