Investigation, Survey & Technical Advice
Stonewest’s involvement at the inception stage of any project results in significantly greater clarity amongst all stakeholders through our ability to provide strategic and costed options and a fully considered project scope from the outset.
From project conception, Stonewest offer a variety of surveys and cost planning options tailored to suit all requirements and budgets. From initial binocular surveys through to itemised and prioritised condition surveys and defect analysis with annotated elevational drawings and photographs, to abseiling, drones and BIM modelling our survey reports are designed to be presented in a format that makes them accessible and easy to use.
Our experienced team can advise on the most appropriate cleaning methods and establish the most practical repair techniques enabling us to produce a project design and specification in line with the client’s programme, budget and needs.
Our team is highly skilled in the use of traditional materials such as stone, brick, terracotta and stucco. Whilst we always seek to adopt a ‘minimum intervention’ approach to repair, sometimes replacement is unavoidable and Stonewest’s expert teams are able to provide detailed analysis of existing building materials and use our international network of suppliers to source new material to match existing.
