Conservation / Heritage

(Christ Church)

Over the years The Damp Store has been involved in a number of important heritage/conservation projects, these include;

Christ Church Crypt,
Iveagh House
City Hall, Dublin
Basement Leinster House
St. Catherines Church on Thomas Street
The Clock Tower
Dublin Castle
Castlebar and Limerick Court House


We have also worked on numerous protected structures in both city and urban areas. We have been involved in building contracts on industrial, commercial and residential projects. We have built up a vast knowledge of the countries existing structure types and forms of construction.

On each of these projects we have endeavoured to apply the principles of conservation to our proposals for dealing with the problems of dampness, insect and fungal decay.

The principals of minimum intervention, reversibility of methods, separation of new from old and minimum removal of original material are articulated from centuries of research, application and progress. These principals can only be applied with a thorough knowledge of the causes of the problems and the systems, methods and products available to deal with these problems.

We at the Damp Store have kept abreast of the ever-changing solutions to the various problems of decay and dampness. Even with modern technology the solution to or at least the slowing down of this deterioration presents a major challenge particularly when corralled by the principals that govern the organisation and application of conservation intervention.

Over the years we have developed conservation skills to know when a particular system, method or material is or is not suitable and to work with a design team adopting and put into action the most suitable solution to be able to respect the architecture, arts and crafts of the past. But at the same time endeavour to prolong the life of a structure for future generations.

No two projects are identical; each project has particular conversation issues and particular moisture and decay problems. We apply our knowledge and experience to each project and strive to put forward the best possible solution.
