Hampton Court Palace

We have been delighted and honoured to work at this significant site for over 10 years. Our role has been surveyor and lead consultant on a number of repair and decoration projects to the East Front Railings. We have assisted the Surveyor of the Fabric’s Department in their Quinquennial surveys, and been involved in a number of repair projects that arose from the survey. We were also involved in the survey, repair and recovering of the roof to the Royal Tennis Court, and designed a new set of railings and plinths for the Southern Section of the West Front to create a more uniform appearance to the main entrance of the palace while still respecting the historical alignment of the perimeter fencing. We have been especially excited to be involved with an ongoing series of projects involving the repair and conservation of the historic brick elevations and chimneys of the Palace.

Apartment 39

From the initial survey of the building, we provided the lead consultant services in the project which required the recording of the brick elevation before it was completely dismantled and rebuilt, while retaining the roof and internal floors.


Our initial survey of the East Front Railings provided the basis for a number of repair phases which have helped retain these important wrought iron railings in good condition. For DIA.

Tennis Court

The Grade 1 listed Royal Tennis Court has been the home of royal participation in the sport of real tennis for centuries. Investigation into the condition of the roof and external elevations led to a major roofing and brickwork repair project. The historic tiling patterns picked out in black tiles were carefully recorded so that they could be replicated when the tiles were re-laid, including the historic anomalies!  Dendrochronological analysis undertaken on the roof structure identified it as being attributable to Inigo Jones, and represented a rare new discovery of his work. For DIA.


The “Wolsey” Chimneys are just one example of the chimneys stacks that have been repaired with our assistance.  The existing chimney crowns had broken free of each other and were loose before they were recorded, carefully dismantled and rebuilt, using new ‘cut and rubbed’ bricks to replace fractured and decayed components.  The project was a finalist in the Restoration Category of the Brick Development Association Awards that year. For DIA.
