Listed building renovations to London’s heritage property
Preserving and enhancing period detailing is a critical part of any renovation project, and our experts know exactly how to get the best out of a listed property. Deciding what should be kept and what can be removed with integrity is not an easy task. However much one loves the old, progress still has to be made. OLBC has the experience to achieve a reasonable balance which is crucial not only to obtaining statutory consents but also as period features are highly prized by most buyers and are heavily marketed in estate agents’ prospectuses.
We have an exceptional group of craftsmen and women capable of wide-ranging and intricate works and we are a particularly good choice for your project if you have any specific concerns with regard to the safeguarding of any material of your property, or require any advice on sensitive restoration or conservation work.
We are highly skilled in restoring period features, such as plasterwork, stained glass, eglomise glass, natural stone, cut brickwork, mosaic and specialist paint finishes or carpentry. We are passionate about modernising heritage properties with the latest technologies whilst maintaining, enhancing and restoring their architectural integrity.
