As Norway’s national competence centre for the preservation of historic stone buildings, the NDR has a wealth of expertise in a number of areas. We often assist with external projects.
Advice on the restoration of historic stone buildings
NDR has unique expertise in the field of stonemasonry and stone carving. We can also help with craft disciplines associated with stone buildings, such as carpentry/joinery, blacksmithing, lead glass and plasterwork.
Structural surveys and remedial work reports
A professionally well-founded structural survey or remedial work report can play a key role in gaining the approval of the national and regional heritage authorities for proposed building work. Such reports can also be decisive when applying for financial assistance for the actual performance of building works.
Advice to individual craftsmen and women
NDR can also train local craftspeople in specific skills, thereby helping to build centres of local competence that can be of use in subsequent restoration projects.
Courses and lectures
We hold courses and lectures, with or without practical demonstrations.
