new specialist division - daedalus conservation

R W Armstrong is pleased to announce the recent formation of a specialist historical repair and conservation division, Daedalus Conservation. 

Based in the South West but operating throughout the UK, Daedulus Conservation will specialise exclusively in the repair and conservation of historic buildings, providing expert consultancy, as well as offering all of the associated principle services; stonemasonry, carpentry and fine joinery, plasterwork and brickwork.

Gary Jones, who was previously with the renowned conservation company St Blaise, heads up Daedalus and is joined by another former St Blaise expert Andrew Housley.

Daedalus Conservation brings together their wealth of specialist heritage and conservation expertise, including experience on many prestigious projects like the restoration of Windsor Castle, with the already established reputation for quality craftsmanship of R W Armstrong.

Gary began his career in heritage conservation and repair over 21 years ago.  He has been responsible for many important projects including: Plas Mawr for Cadw; the Temples of Concord & Victory and Venus at Stowe Gardens; The National Trust's Scotland Headquarters; The British Museum Great Court Project; Victoria & Albert Museum; St Georges Church, Bloomsbury; Castle Drogo, Devon; St Johns College Chapel, Oxford; and Pembroke College Chapel, Cambridge.

The new division's services are already in demand, with work commenced on the conservation of a National Trust property in Berkshire. 

Why Daedalus?  In Greek mythology he was a skilled craftsman and artisan.
