Our specialist team has strong experience in façade cleaning, brick repairs and repointing, structural repairs and wall ties, and full façade restoration inclusive of traditional roofing, leadwork, and external decorations for listed properties.
We work with you to ensure all the correct planning regulations are in place, conservation guidelines and all relevant BS standards have been observed.
Preservation and restoration of historic buildings require a delicate balance between preserving history and the required updates to secure its future. We embrace conservation and work in line with English Heritage and Historic England philosophies, using minimal intervention and techniques aligned to the history and the future repair and restoration requirements of the façade or roof.
From hotels, commercial properties, university buildings or residential blocks, we sensitively restore buildings bringing them back to life. You only have one chance to restore a façade – over-cleaning, aggressive methods or incorrect selection of repair mortars simply leads to failure, sometimes beyond the possibility of further repairs. Being façade restoration experts, we work with a delicate range of stones from around the UK, with a proven track record of masonry repairs for listed and heritage buildings. Some of our recent projects include the historic Grade ll Brighton Hilton Hotel, Grade II Listed Fairfield Hall, the 19th Century Grade II listed manor house and the iconic Northcote House.
Our skilled craftsmen understand and respect the sensitive nature of the materials we work with. From brick repairs and lime repointing, structural repairs and wall ties, or full façade restoration inclusive of traditional roofing, leadwork, we can help. We provide a detailed façade condition survey to identify issues and propose the best solution. We also offer specialist façade cleaning test trials to help build and approve the correct façade cleaning and restoration method.
Working with minimal intervention, utilising methods and techniques aligned with the building’s history and future performance needs, conservation and sustainability are at the heart of what we do. We can provide a complete external stone cleaning service, a complete façade restoration, masonry repair and cleaning solution for ecclesiastical, historic and listed properties.

Customer service is paramount to Building Transformation and they invested vast amounts of time in providing me with a programme to facilitate what was a very complex and time-specific programme of work for the site.

A 200,000 sq. ft., four-storey leisure venue in the heart of Nottingham city centre surrounded by major traffic routes needed work to be done overnight. The Building Transformation staff were flexible and able to work around dynamic operational issues completing the project within three weeks.
May & Co have worked with Building Transformation on a number of projects which have included external building cleaning and refurbishment. They provided a great service, supported by the high level of documentation from the initial quotation to books and industry-related guidance, all relevant to our project.
I am using Building Transformation’s work to help justify façade restoration works around our business. They have produced excellent presentations on what can be achieved and is a brilliant piece of informed marketing that is helping win people over in our business to take façade cleaning and restoration more seriously.
Building Transformation is always mindful of the environments they are working in and take the time to understand the restrictions of each site; whether they be physical or due to the client’s day to day activities. They are extremely proactive and ensure that any issues are flagged to a client immediately, and when doing so always make sure a solution is provided. I couldn’t recommend Building Transformation more highly.
I had a walk around today with Dave and am impressed with the work so far. Dave and the team have done a great job.
I’d certainly love to work with you in the future so perhaps before the job is completed we could look at what opportunities there are for the future.
At this stage, from my point of view your team has been extremely professional, informing us of what was happening at all times and most importantly no disruption whatsoever to our guests and business.
The team at Building Transformation understood our challenge of finding a facade cleaning solution that would initially restore the glazing to its original state, protecting our building for years to come. Through intelligent and thorough testing right through to the full restoration of Block D, we have been very satisfied with the project management and delivery of the cleaning programme.
