We specialise in external and internal stone cleaning, complete façade restoration, masonry repairs and conservation for listed and heritage buildings. Building Transformation provides a complete solution so your building can be restored and maintained for the future.
Initially we provide you with a detailed structural and building survey to identify issues and propose the best solution. By working closely with you we can build a clear vision of how we can support you while working within any listed building (all grades), conservation guidelines, planning issues or restrictions.

Façade cleaning and refurbishment on listed and heritage properties should only be undertaken by conservation specialists. Before starting a project, we work with you to ensure all the correct planning regulations are in place, conservation guidelines and all relevant BS standards have been observed. For one building we may need to undertake multiple projects or workstreams in order to restore, restabilise and refurbish the building façade or roof back to its original state.
Our priority is to restore your listed or heritage building back to its former glory.
