People, skills and resources

A talented team of directly-employed resources.

“We would like to compliment you on the members of the crew you put on the job. Without exception they were professional, conscientious, good natured and tidy.”


In addition to two Project Directors and dedicated office-based support teams, Ward & Co directly employs a variety of conservation and repair craftspersons including stonemasons, joiners, oak framers, bricklayers, carpenters and plasterers.


As a long term model for building conservation contracting, Ward & Co places great importance on training. We have a rolling programme of apprenticeships in lime plastering, carpentry, stone-masonry and brick-masonry to ensure that both modern and traditional skills are carried into the future.


Our offices and yard in Buckinghamshire provide all the resources and support necessary to tender, win and administer major and minor works to historic buildings.
