Outstanding places of worship

Caring for and restoring places of worship is at the heart of what we do. Our founders have become leading authorities on stone conservation, church restoration and community engagement.

For eight decades, we built on our USL legacy and conservation philosophy, blending detailed knowledge and in-depth understanding of ecclesiastical reordering and refurbishment to breathe new life into secular buildings, cathedrals, memorials and places of worship.


We are frequently involved in providing new facilities, whether enabling equal access to entrances and within churches, providing toilets, new tea-spaces, kitchens and storage cupboards or assisting with induction loops, audio systems, lighting and heating systems.

At USL, we understand the importance of preserving and engaging with your community to galvanised support.
