Our skills and experience enable us to work with equal confidence on listed buildings, ancient monuments, private houses and modern developments.More on Stone Consultancy
Building conservation projects demand a different approach to other types of building project and this is where our knowledge and experience are best utilised. We provide comprehensive project management services for historic building projects from inception to completion. We are happy to work as part of a client appointed team or to assist in bringing together the specialists required.More Project Management
