Based on surveys and analysis Cliveden Conservation can provide specifications for work on a wide range of projects.
Trials can be undertaken to determine methods and produce workable specifications. We can prepare documentation to specify cleaning, consolidation, limewashing, securing, pinning and repointing. Specifications and scope of works are presented in report format with an estimated cost for the works to be carried out.
Here are some examples of recent projects:
- East Porch at Charlecote Park, 16th century – mortar, stone and lichen analysis, cleaning techniques and materials, stone replacement samples
- Aphrodisias, Turkey – repair and conservation
- Gate Tower at Ightham Mote, 15th century – lime mortar shelter coat to protect stone work and blend with existing colours
- University Church of St Mary the Virgin – cleaning and consolidation trials
