Over the past few years it has become apparent that the knowledge of cob structures and applications of lime products on historic buildings are gaining momentum, however, too many contemporaries remain unaware of the correct and effective implementation of these specific areas of construction and application.

We liaise with Cornwall Council, Architects, Surveyors, Insurance Companies, Home Owners and other external parties to ensure Cob is correctly repaired/rebuilt, the correct applications are applied and that incorrect advice/assessments can be contested.

Having gained years of knowledge and experience from our numerous successful Completed Projects, all of our work is passionately implemented and carried out to the highest standard.

Our work has not gone unnoticed and we pride ourselves on our knowledge of historical building conservation in Cornwall and Isles of Scilly, and hope to further educate the benefits of Cob and Lime applications in the future to all generations.

As well as the above Assessment/Advice Services, we can also help you with:

  • Appropriate Building Applications in Cornwall and Isles of Scilly
  • Appropriate Planning Applications in Cornwall and Isles of Scilly
  • Listed Building Consent Applications in Cornwall and Isles of Scilly
  • Full Cob Structural Diagnosis in Cornwall and Isles of Scilly
