Project Role: Principal Contractor

Client: Duncan & Toplis

Completion: February 2023

Estimated Project Value: £1.8m

Stirlin completed a 10,000 sq ft office development for accounting and business adviser Duncan & Toplis, which is shared with Wilkin Chapman Solicitors, to support the continued growth of both companies in the area.

After reaching full capacity at their current premises in Louth, Duncan & Toplis approached Stirlin to design and build a contemporary office facility with the appropriate visual impact that will better accommodate their team.

The building provides a reception area, open-plan office space, meeting rooms, separate offices, staff welfare facilities and over 60 car parking spaces, including two Electric Vehicle car charging points. Duncan & Toplis occupy the ground floor and Wilkin Chapman occupy the first floor.

Built with hybrid working and sustainability in mind, the new offices provide an ideal working environment for team members who live locally or support businesses and individuals in the local area.

Managing director of Duncan & Toplis, Adrian Reynolds, said the new office will help both companies to expand their offering to local businesses, helping them to support the local and regional economy:

“I’m absolutely thrilled that construction is now complete 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 local 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 local area and it will also create a far better working environment for our team members, many of whom live in and around the town.”

Location:

The new premises is located on the popular Fairfield Industrial Estate, near to a premises owned by Lincolnshire firm Micronclean, a new McDonald’s restaurant Starbucks Drive Thru and a KFC, with easy access to Louth and the wider region via the A16.
