Work begins on 10,000 sq ft office scheme

What the office building will look like

Building work has begun on a new office scheme in Lincolnshire which will house two of the area’s best-known professional services firms.

Stirlin Developments has broken ground on a 10,000 sq ft site at Fairfield Industrial Estate in Louth which will be occupied by accounting and business advisory firm Duncan & Toplis and Wilkin Chapman Solicitors.

East Lindsey District Council granted planning permission for the scheme in 2019 but construction work was delayed by the pandemic.

The two-storey building will stand next door to a facility owned by Lincolnshire firm Micronclean.

Adrian Reynolds, managing director at Duncan & Toplis, said: “I’m absolutely thrilled that construction is now underway on our new offices in Louth and I’m very pleased that our friends at Wilkin Chapman are joining us in this ambitious project.

“Since we acquired our Louth office in 2007, we’ve supported hundreds of businesses in the area and our team members in the town have supported many more clients across the region and beyond. The number of people we employ in the area has also increased, meaning we’ve reached capacity on our current premises. This new office is a major investment which underlines our dedication to the region and it will also create a far better working environment for our team members, many of whom live in and around the town.”

Flora Bennett, partner at Wilkin Chapman, said: “We can’t wait to move into our new offices at Fairfield Industrial Estate alongside Duncan & Toplis so it’s fantastic that construction is now underway. This will provide us with a modern, flexible environment from which we can better support our clients and our colleagues. Our new Louth office will allow for improved collaboration and communication between our colleagues and clients across the Wolds region.”
