Advice and Guidance
Taking an holistic approach when considering the most appropriate methods of repair and protection.
As part of the conservation process we consider the underlying causes for the loss of historic fabric and formulate action plans to prevent and minimise further failure. Conservation treatments are specific to each individual project and may typically involve environmental control, housekeeping measures, consolidation and stabilisation, cleaning, repair and reintegration.
