Conservation and Restoration

Stonemasonry has always made a significant contribution to the conservation and restoration of the UK’s built heritage.

Sympathetic conservation means choosing sustainable materials – in addition to making the most of new technologies and processes. In the current eco-friendly climate, we are passionate about carefully preserving historical buildings.

What’s more, it’s a sector that never stands still. From the refurbishment of Cambridge’s oldest hotel to the unveiling of a conference centre in listed parkland, you’ll find us highly experienced in conservation and restoration projects.

Feel free to ask us about the contributions we’ve recently made to specialist projects. You’ll find a selection of them below.

Preserving a legacy

“Conservation means the wise use of the earth and its resources for the lasting good of men.”

Gifford Pinchot

How do we protect those historic buildings that future generations will inherit? It starts with preserving their character. Sensitive conservation. Restoring cathedrals, historic houses and public buildings requires specialist skills – as well as time-served experience in this sector.

In addition, we recognise the need to work collaborative. It’s the best way to conserve, restore and refurbish our beautiful buildings – especially those which are protected, listed or simply vulnerable.

You’re in safe hands

First of all, you’ll find us familiar with the latest building guidelines and industry standards.

This is where specialist expertise counts. We’re no strangers to helping restore prestigious buildings across the UK. The same stone that was specified at our West Court development at Jesus College has been supplied all over the country – to places like Windsor Castle and York Minster. Due to the popularity of our stone, you’ll see it used extensively in other Oxford and Cambridge colleges, too.

Design expertise in conservation and restoration

We don’t just provide the materials. Our expert team excel at working closely with contractors and architects for the best outcomes.

You can rely on our full support at every stage of your project – from concept to completion. As a result, many well-known companies come to us, time after time.
