Historic and Listed Public Buildings

 

We have worked on a wide range of Graded listed buildings and public monuments in use as community centres, museums and galleries, tourist information points, and holiday accommodation. We make the structure of the buildings fit for use, present them in good decorative and comfortable order and make sympathetic improvements to access, fire safety and facilities. Local people are sometimes curious about the changes happening to their local landmarks and we are happy to set aside time to speak with them about the work underway in their community.
