Our building restoration services

A building restoration service is any work that returns a property to ‘a known earlier state, on the basis of compelling evidence, without conjecture’ – according to Historic England. There must be compelling evidence for the need for building restoration work. It must respect previous forms of the place, maintain the heritage values of the building, and be sustainable.

The scale of our building restoration services ranges from replacing a missing wall to restoring a roof to a roofless building. While conservation involves the preservation of existing structural elements, building restoration is about returning missing parts (though the lines between repair, restoration, and conservation can become blurred).
