Shepley became established as a specialist restoration and conservation contractor in 1985 when we completed a major iron project on the Grade 1 listed Dorchester Hotel on Park Lane, London. Since that time we have been engaged as the specialist contractor on numerous large high profile restoration schemes as well as a vast array of smaller private commissions. We have made significant investments in the specialist resources which are essential to deal with the unique challenges within this sector and this includes the promotion of trainees through the various key craft skills. We have also made significant investments in our facilities which are capable of dealing with all aspects of the work from the initial cleaning processes, through the various restoration tasks to the application of a range of protective coatings. In all cases our approach is carefully considered to provide a sympathetic solution which can involve a blend of conventional craft skills along with technologies which help us protect the historic fabric.
