Stone Masonry & Lime Conservation
Gary has worked in the Natural Stone industry as a self-employed practitioner for 30 years. Through a combination of engineering design discipline and rigorous craft skill he has successfully undertaken and co-ordinated specialised repair work to both new and historic structures. In 2009 he graduated with a First Class Honours degree in Building Engineering (to add to a degree in Industrial Design, PGCE and Masonry Advanced Craft qualifications). He is an Incorporated Member of the CIOB.
He works closely with architects, archaeologists, Historic England, suppliers, engineers, trades-people and clients providing sensitive and practical solutions. Much of Gary’s work has involved responding with flexibility to complex situations (structural and practical as well as ethical), which requires not only problem-solving and analytical expertise, but also extremely high levels of practical skill.
