Preserving Heritage,
One Building At A Time

Every heritage building tells a story—a tale of time, history, and culture. Time, however, can take its toll. Stonework that once shone bright is now dull. The detail of intricate carving is lost beneath a layer of biomass and dirt.

At Hennessy-Ward, we understand the significance of your building’s legacy and are dedicated to helping you keep its narrative vibrant and visible.

Providing A Solution That You Can Rely On

At Hennessy-Ward, we’re not just façade cleaning experts; we are passionate conservators of history. With decades of experience working on some of Ireland’s most prized heritage buildings, we have developed our S.A.F.E.R. System to give you peace of mind that your building will not be damaged and it won’t cost the earth either.

The Challenge Of Heritage Preservation

Heritage buildings stand as testaments to history, carrying stories and memories within their walls. However, preserving their grandeur is no simple task. Traditional cleaning methods risk damaging delicate facades, stripping away character, and compromising the very integrity of the structure. Moreover, many solutions available today aren’t environmentally conscious, posing a threat not just to the building but to our surroundings. Every owner wants their building to shine without the cost of its historical significance.

Biodeterioration of stone, slate, and all external substrates happens when microorganisms and biomass colonise the surface. Our temperate climate encourages the prolific growth of algae, moss, lichen, fungi, cyanobacteria, and myriad microorganisms. This growth is called biomass. This makes a building look “dirty”!

This is a normal, natural occurrence, and Hennessy-Ward uses a natural approach, working with nature!

We recommend protective, preventative, and preservative maintenance for all buildings.

How do you ensure a pristine façade without risking the rich legacy it upholds?
