This year commemorates a particular year for Lawson Demolition. We are delighted to announce that today marks Lawson Demolition’s 30th year in business.

In 1991 the world was a very different place, the Gulf war had just ended, business was difficult, the economy was still in a recession primarily caused by stubbornly high-interest rates, falling house prices and shortage of work. Unemployment was at an all-time high. While the economy struggled competition within the demolition world remained forever difficult driving tenders and pricing down to an all-time low.

Despite this Lawson Demolition went on to become a leading demolition and asbestos removal company, established today as a member of the Lawson Group.

30 years on and Lawson Group boasts completion of some highly prestigious projects, from demolition of a Docklands and Marinas to MOD sites such Arborfield Garrison and the former GCHQ headquarters in Cheltenham, and everything in between – Lawson Group truly has seen it all.

Over the years we have worked with most of the UK’s major construction companies to help with prominent redevelopment sites all over the country. We have also played our part on the environment with involvement in major environmental projects, protecting habitats and building flood defences for local communities.

We would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank our Clients for their custom and support, it has been a pleasure to work with innovative developers and industry leaders in providing our specialist services bespoke for each project. All of which have contributed towards the growth and success of Lawson Demolition. As we have evolved, we have become experts with an entire host of services including:

  • Demolition
  • Licensed asbestos removal
  • Remediation
  • Dismantling & soft stripping
  • Façade retention
  • Non-licensed asbestos removal
  • Recycling
  • Waste management
  • Crushing & screening
  • Emergency works

Lastly, but by no means least, we say thank you to all our staff over the years, without whom, building one of the most successful demolition and asbestos removal companies in the UK would not have been possible. We at Lawson Group have always believed in investing in our staff’s training and futures and we continue this today, forming one of the most experienced and qualified technical teams in the industry.

Throughout 2021, we will be sharing our history with you on various platforms, along with discussing how the demolition and asbestos removal industry has changed over the last three decades and looking forward to the next thirty years.

Here’s to another 30 successful years as we continue reshaping the future.
