The Historic Building sector is one we thrive in. We have enjoyed the challenge of successfully restoring and renovating Listed and Historic buildings across Devon for many years, and the unique challenges and constraints these projects offer. Our company prides itself on restoring the history of our community and working to traditional methods which we have become specialised in. Over the years we have built a wealth of experience in these environments working in various churches, manor houses, and high profile historic buildings such as the Royal Albert Memorial Museum in Exeter. Below is a small preview of our Historic Buildings sector portfolio:
