About Us

We appreciate that taking a decision to conserve, renovate or restore even just part of your property is stressful. It is a major investment in time and money and no-one wants to waste either. Choosing APT as your contractor will ensure that your restoration project is stress free and completed to the highest standards – the preservation of your historic building is central to our operation.

Why choose APT?

We are driven by the the four D’s:


We are known in the industry for our Dedication and Desire to achieve outstanding results even on tight timescales, we see it simply as a commitment to Deliver on our promises; our clients see it as exceptional. We believe that our clients Deserve nothing less.

We have extensive commercial and industrial experience and unrivalled knowledge in the use of all our technology, having been in the industry for over 25 years working on many sensitive historical buildings and monuments, as well as industrial, commercial buildings and highway structures.

Passion for Preservation

We have a wide range of the most up-to-date soda blasting equipment and environmentally friendly materials with fully trained staff to use them. As the number one soda blasting specialists in the UK, our cutting-edge techniques and equipment ensures that the preservation of your delicate architectural features, stonework and brickwork is guaranteed.

Our versatility and expertise has enabled us to successfully tackle jobs where other companies fear to tread. For APT, complex building renovation is second nature. We have successfully completed preservation projects on some of the country’s most complex historic buildings, including St Fagans National History Museum, where we removed centuries worth of tar and smoke residues from the inside of a 30 foot chimney. This demanded very careful work as the acidic conditions rendered the interior surfaces of the chimney extremely delicate.

It doesn’t matter to us if you need a paint stripping, food machinery cleaning, an historic building or monument restoring to its former glory, APT soda blasting teams have the expertise and techniques to tackle your project, however complex it may be.

Our division is proud of the many blue chip and smaller companies with whom we work. We deal with many architects, restoration companies, housing authorities, educational institutions, public sector, government bodies, asset management companies, and more. We are CADW approved and companies such as Savills, Jones Lang Le Sal, Opus Consulting and Overbury regularly use APT.

Communication and Teamwork

We believe in listening to our customers in order to understand your objectives and requirements enabling us to deliver the most effective solutions. Each cleaning project is different and is overseen by a dedicated project manager. You will therefore benefit from having a single point of contact, making it easy for you to follow progress.

We enthusiastically support our staff, creating a positive interpersonal atmosphere of mutual trust, reliability and ownership across all levels. You benefit from a cleaning team who genuinely care about delivering top-quality results.

Pride and Passion

Our cleaning teams take pride in their work; you can take pride in the results.

Our staff are carefully selected for their knowledge of architecture, monuments, preserving the integrity of buildings and their skills of restoring and conserving a wide variety of surfaces including stone, brick and wood. As a company, we are proud of our track-record for implementing innovative solutions.

You benefit from seeing your building, monument or other property expertly cleaned and restored by a team that works with enthusiasm and respect for your property.

Integrity and Safety

We will communicate openly and honestly with you, providing a realistically priced and detailed quote. There will be no hidden surprises and you can trust us to carry out exactly what we promise.

Maintaining your day to day Health and Safety as well as complying with environmental regulations is hard enough, without adding the extra stress of those specific to a restoration project. When you hire APT as your contractor, we take care of it all from ensuring the safety of staff and the general public to the legal disposal of materials, leaving you free to carry on with your own work.


Over the years, APT has taken existing technologies and developed them, moving not just the company, but the entire cleaning industry forward. Take for example, low pressure steam cleaning. After several years of using conventional steam cleaning equipment, our site operators and engineers put their heads together to produce the “Hot Box” system. This overcomes the main shortcomings of existing systems, making cleaning more efficient and effective.

The company ethos is to deliver ecologically sound cleaning that preserves the architecture, however delicate. To that end, we were among the first to use soda blasting in the UK and have taken it to the next level by developing our own specialist range of blended eco friendly, natural organic compounds to deliver outstanding finishes on almost any surface either wet or dry and at very safe low pressures of just 0.5 bar.

Consultation and advice

The name APT is synonymous with excellence and therefore we are frequently employed to act as independent consultants.

On a more informal level, we love what we do and are always willing to offer help and advice on the most appropriate and sympathetic methods for cleaning, restoring and preservation of historic and delicate brickwork and stonework.
