Following the Governments, statutory guidance Marshall Brown (Windows) Limited has taken the difficult decision to temporarily cease production at our Glasgow factory from the close of business, Wednesday 25th March.  We would like to reassure customers and partners that it is only our production which is closing. All members of staff who can work from home effectively are doing so and all of our support departments are continuing to work as normal. Our Commercial, Contracts, Estimating and Design departments are still working to ensure the full support of our customers on all current and future projects.

We will, of course, be monitoring the situation closely and will be resuming full production as soon as Government guidance permits.

Our priority has been and always will be the safety, health, and wellbeing of our employees and partners.

We would like to thank all our customers for their understanding and continued support through this challenging time and will be keeping everyone updated as soon as we have anything further to report.

Yours Sincerely

Derrick McKenna

Scotland’s largest new hotel is now open for business in Glasgow after successful completion by Ogilvie Construction.

The new Motel One Hotel in Oswald Street, Glasgow, which offers 374 rooms, is the first in Glasgow for the European budget designer brand.

Marshall Brown designed, fabricated and installed the entire glazed façade on the project


Marshall Brown are delighted to have secured their 13th Student Accommodation project with valued client, Watkin Jones.

This order comes on the back of our recently completed projects at St Mungo Avenue, Glasgow and Market Street , Newcastle for the Welsh contractor.

Marshall brown will be designing, fabricating and installing all the windows, doors and curtainwall on this  401 student bed accommodation which is on the site of a former printworks at Kyle Street, Glasgow.

Positing their design principles Fletcher Joseph Architects wrote: “The basic form of the building is a cuboid with a chunk removed to the south west to allow for a protected courtyard. This was the result of extruding the basic footprint of the currently consented scheme – which reinforces the existing urban block with building frontage to Kyle Street, Stafford Street and Calgary Street – over the required height to form a protected courtyard to the rear.

“The protected courtyard forms the heart of the development, providing an external amenity space that compliments internal social areas along with breaking down the mass of the development.”

Faced predominantly in brick with deep reveals the scheme also includes areas of light composite stone panels, dark grey metal and green living wall gables.

Glazing installation will commence in September 2018


Our University of Edinburgh project constructed with valued client , Mclaughlin & Harvey, was officially opened by The Princess Royal, who is Chancellor of the University and Patron of the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies on May 1.

The 7000m2 sustainable building was completed at the end of 2017 with the project overseen by the Estates Department and designed by multi-disciplinary firm Atkins. The building provides shared facilities for students, staff and research scientists, consisting of state-of-the-art facilities for use by the Vet School, teaching and exhibition space, as well as ancillary accommodation including a gym, shop, support services and a multi faith contemplation space.

It is also home to The Roslin Innovation Centre; which provides flexible, open plan, cellular office and laboratory space for rental to start-up companies undertaking strategic, commercial and collaborative research in the Animal and Veterinary Sciences; Agri Tech and One Health industries.

With its western side clad in local stone and a ‘living green wall’ and its eastern side appearing to float above the ground, it is hoped that the building will become an icon for the University. It will also act as the gateway to the campus, which as well as being home to The Royal Dick Vet School and its newly expanded equine hospital, also houses The Roslin Institute, the renowned animal sciences research institute.

The building has been named after Orlando Charnock Bradley, one of the foremost veterinarians of the 20th century and Principal of the Royal (Dick) Veterinary College (as it was then known) from 1911 until his death in 1937.

Following on from the recently completed Hampton by Hilton at Springside, Edinburgh, Marshall Brown are delighted to have been selected by Mcaleer & Rushe to design,  fabricate and install the curtainwall and entrance facades on the new Hampton by Hilton Hotel Edinburgh airport.

The project is currently being developed as a 175 bed Hampton by Hilton hotel with planning application pending for an increased 240 bed hotel. The building will be 6 storeys with all hotel services at Ground floor level and bedrooms above ground on level 1 – 5.

Works have commenced on site with glazed facades expected at the beginning of February 2018
