Structural Restoration & Conservation

Shepley’s first major restoration project in 1985 involved the faithful repair and replacement of the cast iron oriel windows at the Grade1 listed facade of the Dorchester Hotel, London. We completed the project ahead of time, under budget and to the great satisfaction of English Heritage who had imposed very stringent conservation constraints on the project. 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 an extremely experienced and appropriately qualified restoration team supported by large facilities which can accommodate all aspects of the restoration operations including the various cleaning and painting processes. Although we rely heavily on traditional craft techniques during the execution of work, we have also embraced sophisticated survey and recording technologies which are now embedded in our management of these historically significant projects.
