We will not pretend that our work does not have an environmental impact. Of course it does. But we do minimise that impact...

True Sustainability

We believe nothing is more sustainable than extending the life of something already built and capable of serving its purpose long into the future. We recognise the importance of environmental and historic protection and are committed to operating in compliance with all legal requirements related to conservation, repair and restoration on heritage and contemporary buildings as well as new commissions. It is our policy to operate with and to maintain excellent relations with all regulatory bodies.
