Onwards and upwards as Lawson Group team move on up to Sheffield for latest project

Lawson Group have started work on yet another site across the UK, this time in Sheffield on behalf of Client Acorn Properties.

The project, which includes a large amount of soft stripping, and demolition which requires retention of a number of historial features has just commenced in the Kelham Island area of Sheffield.

While work has already been done to start stripping the premises, which include a former garage and a builder's yard, the project is due to continue for a couple of weeks. The site has been disused for so many years that the Royal Mail no longer list the postcode; therefore the demolition of the site will no doubt be a welcome development to the local area.

Martin Wilson, Director at Lawson Group Ltd said: "We are delighted to have been selected by Acorn Properties to carry out demolition works on the site in Kelham Island. It is a challenging project, but we are looking forward to working on it, and looking forward to once again working with Acorn Properties".
