H+R are specialist independent building material defect surveyors.
We focus on building material condition and performance. We do not usually advocate proprietary remedial systems, including chemical treatments, as they can be potentially harmful, destructive of original material, expensive and prone to failure in the longer term. Rather than just treat the symptoms, we prefer to identify root causes of problems and avoid product led solutions.
Our surveyors have professional memberships, including RIBA and RICS (conservation accredited), as well as higher degrees in building conservation and other relevant areas. H+R are corporate members of a variety of organisations including the HHA (Historic Housing Association, IHBC (Institute of Historic Building Conservation), SPAB (Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings), ICCMOS, TRADA, BRE, BSi, and the AECB (Association of Environment Conscious Building).
