Story

Owing to our considerable conservation experience – gained over many years on projects like London’s Bedford Estate – we were honoured to be appointed by Hammerson’s to oversee the full restoration of the famous Victoria Quarter facades. This special building includes ten terracotta domes and three principal facades, all originally built with faience blocks from Burmantofts Pottery in Leeds.  This project has involved significant terracotta restoration, and the domes have been fully replaced. The final phase of this project is due to complete this year.
