Training Course Update

Due to ongoing expansion works that are to be carried out in our customer accessible yard area, we have had to take the regrettable decision to cancel most of our training programme for late summer and Autumn. Despite thinking we could still run these events operational requirements dictate otherwise, and clearly, we have to consider the safety of our delegates during such works.

All June and July courses will still be going ahead and our Lime Pointing Course will continue as scheduled throughout the year. Rest assured, we’ll be back in 2025 with our popular Lime in Building and Lime Rendering & Plastering Course with Sean Wheatley.

We have a large library of information and our technical team are happy to offer guidance with both application and product assistance – please don’t hesitate to contact us if you would like to discuss your project.
