Midland Conservation Limited have built themselves a reputation as one of the best contractors in the specialism of conservation. They have tradesmen of the highest quality in all the traditional crafts, and a management structure of lean efficiency. They have a rare understanding of, and respect for, historic buildings, and I have no hesitation in recommending them for large repair and conversion contracts as well as small and delicate building conservation projects.
