We are delighted to announce that Karl Grevatt, a carpenter working from our Buckingham -shire base, has been awarded a place on this yearís world renowned SPAB Craft Fellowship. He will be joined by two masons from Scotland for the nine month intensive building conservation course. Fellowship alumni can be found working at the highest level in building conservation.
