Vincent started his career as an antique furniture restorer in the famous Brighton Lanes at the age of 16. Realising his passion for the techniques and traditions unique to this declining trade, he started his own business in 1989, and soon built a loyal customer-base through his superior standard of work and dedicated customer service.
Over the years his projects have focused on all aspects of wood conservation and restoration and the buildings in which he and his team now work range widely. Vincent’s expertise has been called upon during the restoration of a number significant public buildings, including consulting on the interior woodwork at the old Headquarters of Midland Bank built in 1925 by Edwin Lutyens and currently being transformed into a 6* Hotel in
the heart of the City.
Vincent is regularly called upon to lecture for The Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) as well as the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings (SPAB) and Conservation Officers, imparting his knowledge and skill to educate on the correct methods and techniques for the conservation and restoration of period woodwork.
