All suppliers in the Directory pay a fee to be included and although Cathedral Communications does not formally approve or recommend them we do screen out inappropriate suppliers and products to maintain the established integrity of the Directory. This ensures that it remains a useful and credible forum in which appropriate suppliers can promote their businesses. Directory users should seek more detailed information and advice from suppliers before undertaking any sensitive project. WELCOME TO THE 25TH EDITION Since the first edition was published in 1993, The Building Conservation Directory has helped bring specialist products, conservators and consultants to the attention of many thousands of owners of historic buildings and their specifiers. By combining this information with articles by leading specialists, details of conservation courses and training, and other essential information, the Directory has helped to ensure that the nation's heritage is looked after in the best way possible, using the most suitable technology and the most appropriate products and materials. Over 500 articles by leading conservation specialists have now been published in the Directory and on our website, BuildingConservation.com, contributing to one of the largest online conservation resources in the world. We are enormously privileged to have worked with many of the the foremost authorities on conservation in the UK, and we are most grateful to all those who have contributed their time and their specialist knowledge over the years, and to all those who have supported us as advertisers.
