HTN Partner Member in the Spotlight

The Temple of Bacchus

Our latest HTN Partner Member in the spotlight is Cliveden Conservation.

Cliveden Conservation exists to conserve our heritage by fostering sustainable relationships that value buildings, objects and the people who use them.

They provide expert advice and practical conservation treatment of stone and brickwork, plasterwork and the decorative arts including statues, mosaics and wall paintings.

Their regional workshops in Berkshire, Somerset and Norfolk give best practice advice based on research and analysis to provide exceptional practical solutions to clients across the country: this ranges from working with private individuals through to acting as specialist sub-contractor and principal contractors for both private and public sector heritage projects.

STONE
They repair, clean and aim to protect buildings from the ravages of age, using their specialist knowledge to establish best practice in repair techniques. Their stone masons and carvers can make and install monuments, sculpture, lettering and architectural masonry. They have extensive experience of in-situ protection of historic objects, along with moving, storing and reinstating historic collections and artifacts, from Egyptian Stelae to modern sculpture.
PLASTER
Cliveden Conservation has a dedicated skilled Plaster Section who play an integral role in the cleaning, repair and reinstatement of ceilings, architectural features, statues and decorative pieces. They use a unique blend of modern and traditional plaster techniques for projects which require new castings, freehand modelling and repair work.
DECORATIVE ARTS
Their highly skilled team, many of which are ICON accredited conservators, carry out the repair and conservation of stone, terracotta, church monuments, mosaics, statues, gilding and decorative surfaces and polychrome.
They provide ongoing conservation and care of house collections and garden sculpture such as the National Trust Country House collection of antique and 18th century garden sculpture, including major collections at Petworth House, Waddesdon Manor, Cliveden, Anglesey Abbey and Powis Castle.
ADVISORY SERVICES AND MATERIAL ANALYSIS
They investigate the structural stability of buildings and objects to identify areas of decay and failure. Using their in-house laboratory, they further examine materials and carry out mortar analysis. Their comprehensive Condition Reports record findings and detail the appropriate conservation treatment.
