Heritage Conservation

"Historic preservation" has been described by Wikepedia, as an endeavor that seeks to preserve, conserve and protect buildings, objects, landscapes or other artifacts of historical significance. Other names for the discipline or sub-disciplines include urban conservation, landscape preservation, built environment conservation, built heritage conservation, object conservation, and immovable object conservation. "Historic preservation" is also generally used to refer to what is known as "heritage conservation" or "heritage preservation". In most growing cities, heritage structures, are under serious threat. Building activity, expansion of cities to accommodate a growing population, pressures for increasing FSI and general apathy towards our heritage has led to neglect, damage and destruction of many structures possessing architectural, historical, social and artistic qualities. One area of our specialization is Heritage conservation and restoration.
