Peter Cox have over 65 years experience working with historic, national and regional landmarks across the United Kingdom.  We are regarded highly with heritage and conservation bodies, their professional advisers and property guardians such as the National Trust and English Heritage.

Our teams operate out of branches across the United Kingdom, with over 75 CSRT or CSSW qualified surveyors and over 100 technicians able to complete projects on time at an exceedingly high standard.

We are also sensitive to the special needs of historic fabric and understand the importance of developing the most appropriate repair specifications and treatment formulations, because of this we are continually researching new products.
