CIOB Heritage Delegation

In keeping with our commitment to Continuing Professional Development, Senior Project Manager Arturs Legzdins MCIOB was in Malta last week with the The Chartered Institute of Building as part of the delegation for their first ever international heritage field trip.

Arturs spent 3 days examining important work where conservation meets measures to mitigate climate change. Expert speakers included Dr Stefan Zrinzo Azzopardi, Rory Cullen FCIOB & Ed Morton as well as field trips to historic gems such as the Grandmaster’s Palace in Valletta, dating back to the 16th century.

Arturs is now back in the UK and says “I am extremely happy to have had the opportunity to take part in this conference. The format worked well listening to the expert presentations about climate change and how it is affecting our industry coupled by visiting Maltese heritage sites as live case studies.

The discussions involved all stakeholders in the Maltese heritage setting, which provided a full picture of the climate change issues there and the various, but not always obvious aspects. At the same time UK expert presentations provided a broader point for debate between the delegates. It is so important such events continue in the future to ensure honest and continuous discourse concerning climate change and how it is affecting the industry.

I cannot thank the CIOB enough for organising this conference and look forward to welcoming the delegates to London in near future.”

With thanks to the CIOB and to Arturs for representing Restore London and for sharing his experience with the wider team.


“Restore London brought a level of quality craftsmanship and skill that is rare in today’s construction market. They worked collaboratively, bringing their wealth of knowledge to every detail. Their contribution to the National Portrait Gallery can be seen wherever you look in the project. ”

“It was a pleasure working with the Restore London team. They showed good team spirit coupled by a highly pro-active approach to problem solving & were able to resource the project during unforeseen circumstances, such as the funeral of the late Queen Elizabeth II. The quality of their workmanship was excellent. ”

Divisional Director, Curo Construction

“I have used Restore London for a number of projects & find them very reliable & cost effective, with excellent workmanship – which is particularly important when working on a number of the Listed buildings we have here at RHC.”


Stephen Crampton

Project Manager, CBRE

““Restore London made our specified repairs so that they are almost invisible when viewing the room as a whole but are sufficiently different that an educated viewer could see where the mosaic had experienced areas of change when looking in detail. Perfect!” ”


Liz Smith

Chairperson & Regional Partner, Purcell

“Restore London’s works were undertaken to the highest standards. The team’s attention to detail has been second to none & we would recommend Restore London to anyone seeking a strong team who can deliver.”

“Restore London cleaned and restored the facades of the building including the courtyard all to the complete satisfaction of our Client’s team. The quality of work was matched by the professional and pro-active approach of the entire Restore team, we would certainly recommend them.”
