Historic Building Repairs Edinburgh



Rope access techniques can be a key for economically and non-intrusively carrying out essential work on historic buildings, allowing for safe access to problem areas which are often nearly-impossible to get to otherwise.

Efficiently applied rope access techniques are just the beginning. Working with historic buildings requires knowledge, skills, experience and a real passion for sensitively dealing with the original architectural fabric.

At HiSolution, we have built our reputation working on Scotland's historical architecture, from Edinburgh's Georgian tenements with their complex high roofs, cupolas, chimney stacks and decorative features to churches, baronial castles and medieval bridges.
