By working closely with clients on a diverse range of historically interesting heritage projects, our engineers have acquired considerable experience in traditional construction techniques and sensitive methods of repair for older timber, masonry and iron buildings.
Commissions include: advice on gas holder restoration in Cardiff for Wales and West Utilities; assessment of defects to a Welfare Hall in the Rhondda Valley; conversion of an Italian convent into flats on the shore of Lake Como; advice to Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council on the historically important Cyfarthfa Iron works and an Ice House at Cyfarthfa Castle. For Natural Resources Wales’ visitor attraction at Coed y Brenin we designed an enclosure - intended to look derelict - for a ‘Britten Pan’ used to crush rock for the extraction of gold. Our wide-ranging portfolio also includes two farm restoration projects involving buildings from the eighteenth century and requiring traditional techniques to be used for the restoration of masonry and timber.
