As consultants we do not undertake works, but provide our clients with a cost-effective appraisal of their buildings, often saving substantial amounts of time and money.

Our conservations approach to timber decay and the promotion of holistic building conservation principles has led many projects funded by the world’s leading conservation organisations.
