Since being established in 2010, Masonry and Lime has become the contractor of choice for many organisation’s who have the privilege to be custodians of some of the finest architecture that our nation has to offer. In addition, we can boast a wide array of clients in the private sector, health care, construction, education and property owners who regularly call on the services of our team to get the project delivered safely, on time, within budget and to their exact requirements. Not only are we highly skilled in working on historic buildings, we also provide new build properties using traditional materials, whilst utilising modern methods – this can provide a unique and cherished building with a modern and traditional feel.
There are no shortcuts when working on historical properties. A rushed job results in poor workmanship, which does not do the beauty of the property justice. Workmanship is of paramount importance, but so is liaising with the client and properly planning the project. We offer un-rivalled expertise in this area and communicate with our clients extensively before and during a project.
Our experienced and qualified staff is able to offer advice on a variety of matters including surveys, schedules of repair, technical solutions and specifications, procurement and project management. Our technical knowledge and experience, gives us an ideal background to discuss and agree matters of detail. These skills and our expertise in our highly regarded industry is what has established our directors as instructors at The Scottish Traditional Skills Training Centre.
We engage with our clients to identify their exact requirements, no two projects are alike, and each has their own criteria to incorporate into our finished product. If you are looking to restore, renovate or rebuild vernacular buildings, barns and outbuildings you can benefit from our expertise and care in the use of traditional materials and methods.
We pride ourselves on the delivery of each project we undertake, our management team and colleagues have a passion for the work they carry out and this is shown immeasurably in the finished article. Our core values of innovation and transparency allow us to find new solutions to age-old problems, and lovingly restore historic buildings.
Using our highly experienced project management team, we can co-ordinate the services of all trades associated with your project. Whether you need plumbers, joiners, electricians, slaters, painters & decorators, we have worked with a wide array of contractors over the years and have an extensive database of trusted tradesmen at our disposal.
