Construction has begun on a new office development for two professional service companies in Louth.
The 10,000-square-foot addition to Fairfield Industrial Estate will be shared by East Midland’s accounting and consulting firm Duncan & Toplis and Grimsby with headquarters at Wilkin Chapman Solicitors.
Representatives from both companies joined design and construction partner Stirlin Developments for a groundbreaking ceremony, after agreeing to co-locate in September last year.

Duncan & Toplis CEO Adrian Reynolds said the new office – which it will own with Wilkin Chapman as tenant – will help both companies expand their offerings to businesses in the area and help them support local and regional economy:
“I am absolutely thrilled that construction is now underway at our new offices in Louth, and I am very pleased that our friends at Wilkin Chapman are joining us in this ambitious project,” he said.
“Since we bought our Louth office in 2007, we have supported hundreds of companies in the area, and our team members in the city have supported many more customers throughout the region and beyond. The number of people we employ in the area has also increased, which “This means that we have reached capacity on our current premises. This new office is a major investment, emphasizing our dedication to the region, and it will also create a much better working environment for our team members, many of whom live in and around the city.”
When completed, with expectations for the end of the year, it will provide modern open-plan office space built over two floors with a parking space of 61 spaces next to Micronclean.
It is to replace both companies’ existing premises in Louth and should be completed by the end of the year.
For Wilkin Chapman, partner Flora Bennett said: “We can not wait to move into our new offices at Fairfield Industrial Estate with Duncan & Toplis, so it’s great that construction is underway now. This will give us a modern, flexible environment from which we can better support our customers and our colleagues. Our new Louth office will enable enhanced collaboration and communication between our colleagues and customers across the Wolds region. “

Designed by Lincoln-based contractor Stirlin Developments, the company is also a leader in its construction.
CEO Tony Lawton said: “We are excited to begin work on this bespoke new premises.
“The design is unique, with credit to our customers for the detailed description and our design and development team for their ability to deliver on the customer’s requirements. While we were hoping to start construction on this a few years ago, the pandemic put the project on hold. “However, this has given the team a chance to further improve its plans to ensure that it fully supports a more flexible, hybrid approach with improved ventilation and additional parking spaces.”
