Fusion starts work on Lawton warehouse

Work has started on a £4 million warehouse for Lawton Copper Tubes in Coventry.

Contractors have just moved on to the site in Torrington Avenue, on the outskirts of the city centre, where the 80,000 sq ft warehouse is to be built.

The design by architect Pinnegar Hayward Designs includes offices and a warehouse, with the design incorporating copper fins on the front elevation to reflect the heritage of the 97-year-old family-owned firm.

Birmingham-based Fusion Building Consultancy has been appointed project managers, health and safety advisors, and quantity surveyors for the scheme.

Partner Gavin Stephens said: “Lawton Copper Tubes appointed us to project manage the entire scheme from start to finish and we spent three months on remediation work before bringing constructors on site to start the build.

“By keeping to a tight schedule and a keen eye on budget, we anticipate a completion date in November.”
