Thanks to the breadth of our experience and the range of skills available we have excelled in the conservation and restoration field for over 50 years. Our multi-tiered, multi-skilled workforce covers every aspect of metalwork which means that our expertise is not just centred on cast iron but also includes wrought iron and steel, restoration techniques, cleaning techniques, site assembly and the use of cast iron in modern construction, landscape planning and architecture.
Our experience covers all the full spectrum of Victorian engineering ranging from gates and railings, staircases and balconies, sculptures, fountains and bandstands, to canopies, glasshouses, windows and structural ironwork. Architectural cast iron can be difficult to restore and, as such, it is important to have specialisation in this field. Where repair works are required, this should be done with the intention of retaining as much of the original cast metal as possible using techniques that are sympathetic to the original structure. Sympathetic restoration and conservation is important as it will guarantee the condition and future preservation of the cast ironwork for generations to come.
Notable jobs have included restoration of all of the canopies at Buckingham Palace, casting and erecting over 200 tonnes of ductile iron parapets for Albert Bridge in Glasgow, casting and erecting over 4 kilometres of railings for Baxter Park in Dundee, refurbishing the famous Black Boy Fountain in King’s Park in Stirling and the restoration of over one kilometre of cast iron railings at Duthie Park (Aberdeen). No matter what scale the job is we can guarantee the best possible restoration services available in the UK.
We also provided consultancy on the restoration and conservation of cast iron objects and provide reports for public and private organisations alike. If these services are of interest please get in touch by calling 01506 822 721 or alternatively get in touch via our contacts page.
