Howden's Engineering Works in Scotland Street, Glasgow, are next to the Mackintosh-designed Scotland Street School. Howden is now a huge company, but this is where they started, building turbines and various other heavy engineering. Some of the last things built at Scotland Street were the tunneling machines for the Channel Tunnel.

The first of the large sheds:

A giant map of Scotland, in one of the offices:

The way through to the second, larger and newer shed:

The longest part of the building - this is, I think, where the Channel TBM was assembled:

A smaller room, used, it looks like, for painting:

The walls are quite brightly painted:
