Restoration

Existing assets need periodic renovation and maintenance. Visionstream are specialists in undertaking external  and internal regenerative and restorative works. Using our stonemasons, specialist joiners and skilled lead workers we are used by a growing number of Block Managing Agents to undertake restoration of external parts and communal areas. Our works policy is one of retention and restoration where possible rather than renewal of structures, this is particularly important with older buildings to maintain their authenticity.

Visionstream undertake repair works as part of the restoration and refurbishment processes. Depending upon the age and style of the building we work closely with our clients to agree the preferred methodology of repair.  Clients, Conservation Architects and Heritage engineers are a vital part of the decision making process when determining the most sympathetic route to achieving the desired result. Visionstream are proud of our relationships with Architects, Chartered Surveyors, Designers and Specialist Engineers.
