News: Eton to build new town centre office development


Rotherham-based Eton Construction has secured a contract to build a new landmark office building on the edge of the town centre for J Parkinson & Sons.

The Wellgate contractor is continuing to expand its portfolio and will construct a purpose built office and workshop for the undertakers, who at present occupy an adjacent older property on Wellgate.

J Parkinson & Sons was established in 1875 and today the fifth generation of Parkinson funeral directors operate the business. It has now outgrown its current site.

Adjacent to the former Wellington boot pub, which now operates as a music academy, construction recently began on the site for the three-story building which has been designed to fit in with the surrounding area as it lies within the town's conservation area.

When completed, it will provide 350 sq m of floorspace with an office and reception plus workshop and preparation space.

Cain Green, commercial director of Eton Construction (pictured, centre), said: "We are pleased to have been awarded the contract and pleased to have formed a partnership with J Parkinson & Sons, a long established company within the borough. The town centre will no doubt benefit from the investment in a new development."

Established 2010, Eton was trading as Harris Construction (Yorkshire) Ltd as a residential developer. Following a management reshuffle the firm rebranded as Eton Construction Ltd, to concentrate on commercial contracts. The first major contract was the refurbishment of Swinton Grange nursing home, Swinton.

Other contracts include internal fitout work to an industrial unit in Meadowbank and an office refurbishment and extension for a solicitor in the town.

Cain added: "Being a small company we are very competitive in similar sized projects and we provide a full professional service working closely with our clients at all times, with the main aim of producing a quality finished project."
