Church of St Margaret, Westminster 

Dædalus Conservation will shortly work within the grounds of Westminster Abbey. The contract involves roofing and external façade repairs under the instruction of Ptolemy Dean Architects. 


Portsmouth Cathedral 

Dædalus Conservation has recently commenced works to this iconic cathedral, dedicated in 1180. Our role involves repairs and alterations to the tower and dome, including the bell and ringing chambers. We will also carry out repairs to the external Eastern chancel walls, which form part of the original medieval building. 


Glynde Place 

This property was originally built in 1569, and has been lived in by only three families over the past five centuries. Our work involves external repairs, structural repairs and the re-roofing of several bays.


Hampton Court Palace 

Dædalus Conservation recently completed work at the historic royal palace. This includes external façade repairs and roofing works to the Tudor grange.


Ashdown House, Berkshire

Dædalus Conservation worked with the National Trust on an extensive external fabric repair programme to Ashdown House. The works included stone tile roofing and leadwork, repairs to the cupola, and the repair and replacement of the chalk stone façades using stone quarried from a local source.  Click here for more photographs.


Guildford Guildhall, Surrey

The iconic Guildhall building in the centre of Guildford had significant works undertaken by Dædalus Conservation to stabilise the bell tower, and repair and re-roof the main hall and council chamber. Working under a large temporary roof scaffold, the team repaired roof timbers and carried out structural repairs to the bell tower before re-tiling the roofs.

St Giles' Church, London

Dædalus Conservation worked with Caroe & Partners to undertake external fabric repairs to the 15th Century tower and clockface of this historic church located in the City of London. The tower is constructed from Kentish ragstone; a common stone used in London's medieval churches. 


Clouds House, Wiltshire

Dædalus Conservation completed specialist repair and redecoration to the decorative plaster ceilings, panelled walls and fireplaces in the dining and reception rooms of this 19th Century country house. Widely believed to be one of the finest designs of renowned 19th century architect Phillip Webb, Clouds House is now home to the charity Action on Addiction.


The Keep Military Museum

Built in 1879, this military museum was originally the gatehouse for the depot barrack of the Dorchester regiment. Dædalus Conservation carried out specialist stone repairs, stabilisation, re-pointing and grouting to the external Portland Stone façade.


All Saints Church, Kingston

Dædalus Conservation was the main contractor for the extensive renovation and redevelopment works to this historic Grade 1 church. The project was completed on schedule, despite delays due to the discovery of lead coffins, which resulted in the appointment of a resident archaeologist. The church now provides a revitalised centre for heritage and community in the town. It was subsequently highly commended at the RICS Awards for Building Conservation 2015.

Guildford Museum

External repairs including structural stabilisation were undertaken to the Grade II historic buildings that make up Guildford Museum.  During works a section of the original castle wall was discovered and the site was categorised as a Scheduled Ancient Monument, as its origins date back to the late 12th century.  Dædalus consequently worked on the conservation of this historic wall with English Heritage and the Monitor Inspector.
