The Coode Conservation Partnership (formerly Heritage Blacksmith Partnership) brings together a team of experienced and qualified metal conservators as a response to the growing recognition that the conservation and restoration of historic metalwork is a specialist area.
Drawing on our backgrounds in traditional blacksmithing, fabrication, fine metalworking and conservation we blend these skill bases to provide both conservation services and modern metalwork for a variety of contexts.
Specialists in both ferrous and non-ferrous metal conservation for the UK heritage industry, we offer sensible, sensitive and responsible conservation and restoration of important metalwork. Our extensive metalworking experience allied with a firm knowledge of conservation principles means that clients involved in heritage conservation can be assured that all our projects will be undertaken to the highest craft and conservation standards.
We work with a diverse range of clients, varying from large contractors on complex listed building conservation projects to one off projects for individual clients. Examples of completed projects can be found throughout our website.
We are often involved in projects from beginning to end, reflecting the fact that our specialist skills can be utilised at all stages of a project. Our skills and experience are regularly called on when writing tenders and specifications, we may liaise with other craftsmen (e.g. stonemasons) to co-ordinate and carry out the installation of metalwork – often one of the last stages of the conservation or redevelopment of a site. Our commitment to traditional quality of workmanship and our informed knowledge of modern conservation practice is what drives us to deliver the highest standard of conservation and restoration of heritage metalwork, as well as the design and making of new metalwork.
From our traditionally equipped blacksmith’s workshop to our clean painting and conservation warehouse, your conservation or new build metalwork project is in the hands of skilled metalworkers and conservation specialists.
