Heritage & Conservation Work In Edinburgh

Img 3712

Edinburgh is a fantastic place to be based. We’re spoilt by an array of amazing landscapes, history and architecture which means we are lucky enough to be able to work on some really interesting projects.

As specialists in heritage and conservation work we are often asked to work with owners of buildings with some fascinating stories behind them but often with complex needs. It’s a real honour to be part of these projects and we know there is a lot responsibility and trust on our shoulders, but these are the kind of challenges we thrive on.

The New Town

We are often asked to work in Edinburgh’s historic city centre where the New Town has a wealth of beautiful buildings. Some of these are Georgian, some Victorian, and most are listed.

Our expertise in bespoke joinery and our understanding of listed buildings means we know exactly what we’re doing when it comes to restoration and repair.

Not only do we know our stuff when it comes to the legislation surrounding these special buildings, but we also make every effort to source and work with the right materials for each job to replicate and/or manufacture existing features e.g. architraves, doors, cornices and windows etc, ensuring the maintenance of the original character of your home or business space.

Sash & Case Windows

Often, windows are an area of real specialism in these types of buildings. Sash and case windows are acknowledged as a key feature of traditional Scottish architecture and can be found in all sorts of properties but they require a special kind of care and attention to keep them in great working order.

For the repair, restoration and replacement of sash and case windows, we work alongside our sister company Sash & Case Windows Direct. They offer an expert, quality service for all aspects of maintaining and replacing these eye-catching home enhancements.

We’ve delivered lots of work in conservation areas, on listed buildings, on grant assisted projects and with heritage organisations. This means we can anticipate any special requirements and offer knowledgeable advice to homeowners, architects and project managers.

Historic Environment Scotland

We understand that it can be daunting to be responsible for a historical building, but there is lots of advice and support available. If you are looking to do some research, Historic Environment Scotland can help with a wealth of information and archives. They can also advise on grants and funding which may apply to your project.

If you have a historical building and would like to find out more about our services to restore or renovate your property, please get in touch. We’d be delighted to have a chat about how we work, and how we can help you from the planning stages right through to completion making sure your project complies with all the regulations from the relevant planning authorities.
