CONSERVATION

CONSERVATION

We are highly practiced in carrying out masonry works using a wealth of traditional stonemasonry skills and materials.

Specialising in the conservation of traditional town war memorials, historic monuments, ecclesiastical building and listed properties, we take pride in prolonging the life and integrity of architectural heritage.

ABOVE: We use only state-of-the-art equipment to aid in our conservation. Here a spider crane makes light work of dismounting a precious war memorial.
