Restoration Projects Create a Successful Niche Building Service
The restoration of historic buildings requires specific skills and extensive building knowledge. One company is now using these qualities as the basis for a niche building refurbishment service.

"Restoration requires the use of modern construction knowledge in the interests of making old buildings safe and secure, and giving them a future."
This work involves a great deal of diligence with respect to sourcing materials and applying them in such a way as to retain the unique character of the building concerned, while addressing any long-term flaws or deterioration.
As Michael explains, "We've sourced wooden flooring from overseas and reclaimed brick in order to ensure that the materials are correct for the job. Top-end restoration work requires this kind of attention to detail, whether it's finding original material or aging the contemporary to perfectly match."
Restoration Projects is now applying these techniques and this way of working further afield. With the UK property market continuing to thrive, many property owners are looking to add value with specialised refurbishments.
Michael says, "This is an area we're developing for what we can offer people. We can provide a suitable bridge between old and new, making the two work together."
Both domestic and commercial property owners are looking for a unique selling point when it comes to property development. Restoration Projects can provide this by mixing modern with restored with an expert eye for detail.
Michael has had a long career in restoration, particularly churches, and this has given him a specific skill-set and a huge amount of experience when it comes to working with building materials and using them to enhance and improve existing structures.
"Refurbishments, conversions and extensions may seem commonplace nowadays but this is exactly why we can bring added value to the process, Michael remarks. We can ensure that any building has the sort of features that give it a special quality and a unique character. We're perfectionists because we have to be in order to do the work we do. And our clients are, rightly, perfectionists too."
