Historic Property Restoration Limited was formerly the direct labour arm of English Heritage. Certainly with respect to the conservation and repair of Scheduled Ancient Monuments, the evidence suggests we are now the preferred contractor.
Our experienced and qualified staff are able to offer advice on a variety of matters including survey, schedules of repair, technical solutions and specifications, procurement and project management. Our technical knowledge and experience, allied to awareness of Scheduled Monument and Listed Building legislation, gives us an ideal background to discuss and agree matters of detail with Conservation Officers, English Heritage Inspectors and the like.
English Heritage, The National Trust and Northumberland Estates at Alnwick Castle are three of our key clients with whom we work continuosly. Ecclesiastical work also forms an important part of our business. We are proud to have recently completed a major re-ordering and stonemasonry project at Durham Cathedral, and have just been awarded the £3.7M contract for the Common Ground in Sacred Space project at Newcastle Cathedral.
Main depots and workshop facilities in Ripon and Prudhoe support our Head Office in North Shields. Smaller bases in Doncaster, Hexham and Central Lancashire afford us the flexibility to service projects throughout the UK.
