listed-building-developmentWe are well versed in the necessary liaison with heritage and conservation bodies, their professional advisers and property guardians such as the National Trust.

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 where we are continually researching new products.

Quality of workmanship is paramount too, and Peter Cox technicians can handle specifications as varied as:

  • Horsehair plastering
  • Sourcing reclaimed timber
  • Reconstructing traditional oak framing
  • Strengthening floor beams
  • Stabilising masonry facades
