On behalf of Historic Scotland, Victor carried out extensive stone repair and conservation work at St. Mary’s Cathedral in Edinburgh.

The building, which dominates the city’s skyline, was designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott in the Victorian gothic style, and it has remained the focus of an active faith community since it was first consecrated in 1879.

To ensure that stone-built churches and cathedrals are well-maintained, it’s vital to have in place a programme of stone repairs.

Victor is trained to undertake the sensitive work which ensures that these buildings remain in fine condition, and fit for purpose, in the twenty-first century.
