For the last two summers we have been restoring a selection of historic school crests and plaques at Rugby School. The paint layers were heavily blanched and flaking, and it was clear the existing scheme was a poor quality, modern recreation.
Towards the end of 2015 we began work on a fabulous project at the Church of the Sacred Heart, Caterham, where we were invited to undertake the conservation and restoration of the beautiful painted decoration by Joseph Aloyisius Pippet (1840-1903).
After conducting a detailed condition assessment of the Cable Street Mural alongside one of the original artists, Paul Butler, we were delighted to act as main contractor for the project to stabilise and restore the mural in the summer of 2011.
The magnificent painted timber ceiling in the nave of Ely Cathedral was painted between 1858 and 1862 by Henry Styleman le Strange, a gentleman artist from Hunstanton and completed, following his death, by Thomas Gambier Parry.
The Grade I listed former Midland Grand Hotel is a resplendent Gothic style building dating from 1873-1876, by the renowned architect George Gilbert Scott. Having first worked at the building back in 1998, we returned in 2004 as part of the team involved in the huge restoration project.
