Heritage, Arts and Culture fast facts

A wealth of experience

From Royal palaces to theatres, opera to cinema, Churchill’s war time bunker to ancient castles, our experience across heritage, arts and culture is as broad as the type of visitors these extraordinary places attract. We are working with some of the UK’s most prestigious sites as they work to enrich the lifestyles of the nation and also attract millions of visitors to the UK each year.

Preserving our heritage

Our work in this sector spans many decades. We have carried out renovation work at some of the UK’s most famous buildings such as Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle, Hampton Court and the Tower of London. In Wales we maintain castles and ancient monuments and we also provide facilities management services at the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden and the Imperial War Museum. Many of the locations where we work house priceless artefacts which can be sensitive to light, humidity, heat and vibration, such as in Churchill’s war time bunker deep under the streets of Westminster.

Together with the work we undertake on high profile sites, we apply the same level of care and attention to any building which contains heritage features. For example, many head-office buildings, town halls and universities are also steeped in history and require a specialist and sympathetic approach to fabric maintenance and renovation work. Our historic building and heritage experts manage complicated aspects of design, building, renovation and maintenance on heritage sites, such as retaining historic facades and managing work on ancient monument, as well as listed buildings.
