Monuments and memorials are structures that commemorate a person, event or, an important remembrance of historic times or cultural heritage. It is often applied to buildings or structure that are an important piece of historic architecture.
HSR has undertaken numerous conservation projects on Memorials and Monuments, liaising with architects, councils and conservators in an effort to maintain historical monuments with a high standard of workmanship.
We specialise in understanding the various fabrics used in monuments and therefore using the latest technology to ensure that the cleaning process is carried out carefully. HSR also looks after the dismantling and relocating of monuments, designing specific lifting devices to aid cranage when relocating monuments without dismantling – therefore reducing possible damage, repointing joints in traditional lime mortars, lime renders, lime crack injections, and special consolidation process of friable limestone sculptures to delay deterioration.
