Simon Swann Associates


Simon Swann Associates is a small conservation practice working in East Anglia with specialist knowledge of the area and the local materials used in construction. The director, Simon Swann, is an accredited conservator with over 20 years experience in the conservation of historic buildings. Unlike the directors of larger companies, Simon's role as the principal accredited conservator allows him to carry out both condition assessments and the on-site conservation works required. This ensures a high quality of work, continuity and the flexibility for projects to be adjusted easily as conditions dictate.


The practice uses local craftspeople and supports training with internships and apprentices whenever possible.


Simon Swann Associates was established in 1995, becoming a limited company in 2009. In recent years the practice has grown considerably, while retaining the considerable benefits of being a small specialist practice.


Simon Swann is an accredited conservator (ACR) having achieved accredited status with the Institute of Conservation (ICON). The practice is listed on the conservation register. Prior to working independently in East Anglia in 1995, Simon worked for several national conservation firms including Cliveden Conservation, St Blaise and Induni Conservation. During the early 1990s he worked on projects at Chastleton House (Long Gallery ceiling), Stowe Landscape Gardens (Temple of Venus and several other temples). Simon has also worked in France and carried out short contracts in Europe and the Republic of Ireland.
