about us

Guild AR is an experienced building restoration company and design-led custom build service with an emphasis on vernacular & traditional skills. We offer a wide range of restoration related services and solutions for ecclesiastical and other historic buildings and structures. We also work directly with clients on home restoration to both Town & Country properties nationwide.

Founded in 2015 after working for almost 20 years as both freelancers and employees, alongside industry leading principle contractors, surveying and architectural practices, English Heritage and Conservation teams, we decided to form Guild Architectural Restoration Ltd and offer our combined skill set under one point of contact.

Our background and experience range from hands-on restoration skills, artisan crafts, art & design to heritage consultancy and project management. We have accumulated the requisite skills and knowledge to restore, conserve and maintain historic buildings and structures and are proud to be involved in undertaking the restoration and conservation of the built environment.
