Schedules of Stonework Conservation & Repair Works for Contract Tender


For many years, it was common practice for those charged with responsibility for scheduling stonework repairs to heritage buildings to engage the services of a masonry contractor to provide advice as to what repairs ought to be carried out. Whilst the contractor may have been a skilled and knowledgeable mason, it has been an inescapable fact that he or she would always have – or could at least be perceived to have – a vested interest in the nature and quantity of works scheduled.
