SJS delivered a sparkling performance in delivering the fit-out and refurbishment for Laing the Jeweller at its new three story Flagship premises on 72 George Street, Edinburgh.

The finished store is of the highest quality and is now the jewel in the crown of Edinburgh’s prestigious retail street.

In additional to the full fitout project, SJS produced and installed the highest quality bespoke manufactured joinery display cases, furniture, feature wall panelling, service counters and timber shopfront within our state of the art production facility, all of which provided the exceptional quality finish befitting of such an esteemed jeweller.

Careful planning, a proactive teamwork approach with the clients design team and good communication throughout enabled this project to be delivered in a very challenging city centre location with minimal disruption to neighbouring retail and residential properties that remained fully occupied during the currency of the works.
“We’re extremely proud of our new luxury showroom it’s a true celebration of timeless beauty and craftsmanship blending contemporary design with the traditional splendour of the Georgian period.” – Michael Laing OBE
