Client: British Dyewood & Chemical Co.
Authorship: Authorship category 4 (Office) (Office)

This utilitarian, two-storey building, 15 bays long by four wide, was an addition to the Carntyne premises of the British Dyewood & Chemical Co.. in Glasgow's industrial East End. Honeyman, Keppie & Mackintosh's job-book entry reveals that it had a roof supplied by the Clyde Structural Iron Co., but also that it contained a large amount of joinery. A brief description written before demolition says the main materials were red brick and concrete. 1 No drawings appear to survive.

Authorship: This is one of over 270 jobs carried out in the office of John Honeyman & Keppie (Honeyman, Keppie & Mackintosh from 1901) during Mackintosh's time there. Mackintosh undoubtedly worked on many of these, but there is no specific evidence for his involvement in this case.

Cost from office job book: £1942 7s 10d

Status: Demolished
