A Grade II listed property constructed in 1558 in Cheadle Hulme involved replacement of an oak truss, front truss and tie beam all in green oak, this involved liaising with the local conservation officer and English Heritage throughout both the removal and replacement of the timbers and the reinstatement of lime plasters using traditional methods and traditional specialist paints.

A 14th Century building located near Ingleborough which was partly built off bedrock. The rear and left gable of the house were some 1.6m below the external ground level. Working in conjunction with Architects a solution was found to the damp problem that involved the installation of a vented membrane system and traditional lime plasters enabling the house to be re-occupied.




In-situ timber treatment works to timber lintels at stables in a listed building in Lancashire.



Work to a Grade 1 listed building in Sheffield which had suffered movement of brickwork and main timber beams partially due to historic builders work. The Engineer designed a scheme of steel beams and posts to support the old structure. The work involved drainage and concrete foundation work and all finishes had to appear to be part of the old building. We worked closely with the local conservation officer to achieve the finished effect.
