Efficiency, customer service and quality.
Application of On-site/Off-site Patinations

Classic and contemporary patinations may be applied to Brass, Gilding Metal, PB102 and Cast Bronze. To deliver your project/scheme successfully there may be a requirement to combine on site and off site patinations, i.e. from lift openings, skirting, and architraves to reception desks and entrances.

Conservation of Sculpture and Architectural Metalwork

With experience of over 35 years Laurence has worked on sculpture from Rodin to Henry Moore and was directly involved in the conservation of the Royal Artillery Memorial. He has successfully delivered numerous other projects throughout the UK including the Russell Institute Paisley architectural metalwork railings, handrails, windows and sculpture.

Production of Samples
Many of our contemporary patinations are borne out of innovation required by artists and architects. If inspired through an image or a vision we are happy to take on the technical challenge.
Application of Modern Lacquers

We have formulated our lacquers to complement our patinations for an enduring look. They are low in polyurethane allowing light to pass through them giving an incredible natural feel.

Whether it is for practical solutions or for a better understanding of our patinations, you can trust our experience. If your concerns are budgetary or maintenance driven we are able to manage these issues during the specification process.
Surveys and Conditions Reports
A published survey to the client and contractor is supportive in opening channels for discussion and consultation for local authorities or stewardship in seeking Listed Building Consent, conforming to legislation and practical solutions in conservation and restoration.

Bronze, stainless steel, granite and marble all require some form of on-going maintenance through cleaning or waxing. We provide assistance at every stage through a programme tailored to your requirements.

Research and Development

With an extensive library and through personal knowledge and experience we have developed new ways of achieving traditional finishes involving both modern systems and a modern approach. We are expert artisans working from a modern facility.

DOFF and JOS Cleaning

Both systems are manufactured by Stonehealth Ltd. DOFF is a superheated water cleaning system which can be used for the cleaning of bronze without compromise to the substrate or original patina. JOS is a gentle yet effective swirling vortex cleaning system. Choosing calcite as our medium in the right hands we are able to pinpoint and remove corrosion from the alloy without unacceptable metal loss from the substrate. Our skilled workers have thousands of hours of experience. Contact us for help.

Overhauling of Windows and Openings, Freeing and Adjusting Ironmongery, Winding Gear, etc.

This service has been successfully delivered most notably to the Land Registry Office, Lincoln’s Inn Fields, Cripps Building at St John’s College Cambridge and the Russell Institute Paisley all within Listed Building Consent.

Replication of Missing and Stolen Rolls of Honour & Plaques
Unfortunately metal theft is a scourge of modern society. We are able to replicate stolen items producing exact replicas. Patterns are produced and bronze cast in the traditional method. The patination may be sympathetic with other elements within the monument with the use of modern techniques and invisible fixings; we also offer the service of reinstallation.
