The people of Heritage Building & Conservation are passionate about conserving Britain’s architectural heritage and proud of the heritage craft skills we nurture.
We are a team of individuals who through the application of the very best heritage hand, experience, knowledge and management skills, restore our country’s heritage buildings and monuments. We have a passion for training and we directly employ a core of tradesmen and women from the workface up to director level.
Their commitment is reflected in the outstanding quality of our work and it is this commitment that has helped forge the longstanding relationships with those we work with.
What we have constructed is a national supportive network of heritage craft skills, knowledge and experience within the HB&C group that shares its resources whilst maintaining the relationships and local connections to the business and wider local communities we inhabit – National Resource, Local Knowledge.
Proud custodians of the traditional crafts
Supporting the next generation of craftsmen
Being proud custodians of heritage craft skills, and being acutely aware that these skills are in short supply across construction, we take our responsibility for training very seriously.
Across all our operations, we encourage apprenticeships supporting younger people learning a trade and older people discovering one. We currently employ 15 craft apprentices and a further 13 employees are training for degree and professional qualifications. We champion continual development of our teams by way of external training with links to learning institutions and schools and our Directors also sit on industry and City livery company training committees, striving to increase and to improve training provision.
It is our duty to do all we can to support the next generation. Keeping these skills alive keeps our heritage alive.
