At C Jackson & Sons we are regularly contacted regarding older buildings that are required to be demolished to make way for something else. This was the case when we received an enquiry from Rochmills who own the plot of land that the former Charles King Showroom sat on – they asked us to completely clear the site in order for a 106 unit care home to be built in its place.
The Charles King Showroom, located in the Broadway area of Bedford, was widely regarded by locals as the town’s biggest eyesore. The demolition was welcomed by many residents including the Mayor, Dave Hodgson, who commented that it was coming “not a moment too soon”.
This is the latest in a long line of redevelopment projects in the Bedford area and we are proud as a local company that we could help play our part in the regeneration of the town. Demolition work on the site started at the beginning of November and is now complete, ahead of schedule.
