At Shape Conservation we have spent years training and gaining experience in using traditional techniques and materials to restore historic buildings to their former glory. Where others may modernise, using updated techniques, we believe that the finest historic buildings deserve to be restored sympathetically and in the mannar in which they were first created. This is how we can truly respect our cultural heritage and preserve our wonderful history for generations to come.
