The Scottish Lime Centre Trust has been providing advice on the use of lime based materials for the conservation of traditional buildings since 1994. Our team can provide a wide range of consultancy services to the building conservation industry.
From basic visual surveys, through to specialist non-destructive investigation techniques, SLCT benefits from a multidisciplinary team which can draw upon additional specialised expertise when required, to ensure maximum benefit is achieved from any project.
We can build up a picture of what the building would have looked like both internally and externally including original paint, limewash or distemper finishes and indeed colours.
Specialist advice and recommendations for all, from lead professionals to homeowners
Preparation of specifications for conservation works for a huge range of buildings and structures, from cottages to castles, bridges to doocots, and ruins to mills (not an exhaustive list!)
SLCT Surveyors in conjunction with associated consultants can undertake building fabric investigations utilising a wide range of specialist techniques.
We don't just provide information on historic buildings, we can also advise on the correct use of materials in new construction.
Take a look at our project locations (below) and you'll see how broad our remit is from our home turf to the USA and Australia.
We have worked on well over 2,000 projects (the map is currently in development).
