National Centre for Restoration

The Restoration Workshop of Nidaros Cathedral is a government appointed national centre for the conservation and restoration of historically significant stone buildings.

This means that the restoration department has the responsibility for the restoration and preservation of the Cathedral and the Archbishop’s Palace. In addition, our skilled workers have to maintain and further develop the traditional craft practices that their different workshops represent. Thus, our older and more experienced staff teach and share their skills with the apprentices. Interdisciplinary knowledge has always been of great importance at our workshop, so this kind of traditional education is still a source of great pride amongst the employees. Today, we combine our internal training with a bachelor degree program in Technical building restoration at NTNU.

The Restoration Workshop of Nidaros Cathedral:

-General advice concerning the restoration of historically significant stone buildings.

-In depth reports discerning the present condition of historic buildings and what kind of preventive measures are needed to maintain their upkeep.

-Guidance from craftspeople within our fields of expertise and quotations for traditional restorative projects
