Conservation and Restoration
MOVABLE ARTISTIC AND CULTURAL HERITAGE
Conservation and Restoration of Works of Art and Heritage Assets
Among the services we offer at GRANDA is the Conservation and Restoration of Works of Art and Heritage Assets. The department is made up of a group of professionals who are specialists in all fields of restoration, backed by their official qualifications. We have built up a solid track record that has positioned us as one of the leading Spanish companies in the field of Conservation and Restoration.
Our interventions range from comprehensive projects, which require the setting up of an on-site workshop, to small-format individual works, which we treat in the studio of our facilities. We undertake the restoration of easel painting (canvas and panel), mural painting, altarpieces, wood, stone and bronze sculpture, furniture, gold and silverware (silver and bronze), textiles, hand-painted wallpaper and porcelain.
Conservation and restoration experts
One of our differential values is our extensive multidisciplinary team: conservators, restorers, historians, architects, chemists, photographers, archaeologists, lighting engineers, who together with our artisan silversmiths, bronze workers, sculptors, carpenters and stonemasons provide us with valuable knowledge of traditional techniques.
Their expertise is essential to carry out interventions, following international guidelines and recommendations in accordance with current legal regulations.
Specialists in Church Heritage
GRANDA's Restoration Department was born with the aim of completing the vocation of service to the Catholic Church with which Don Félix Granda founded our company. In our interventions on ecclesiastical heritage assets, we always bear in mind the particular needs of these works due to their liturgical or devotional use. This aspect, whose importance is also recognised by UNESCO as part of the Intangible Religious Heritage, is always considered among the intervention criteria for the conservation and restoration of the works. We also offer a consultancy service prior to intervention on any cultural property.
In addition to works in private or institutional collections, we also intervene in pieces from public collections, through contracts with public administrations obtained in competitions. Our prestigious clients and contractors include the Ministry of Culture, the Spanish Cultural Heritage Institute (IPCE), the Regional Government of Castile and Leon, the Regional Government of Extremadura, the Community of Madrid and National Heritage, as well as numerous Cathedrals and Religious Institutions.
