Readers of our page on Working in the Educational Sector will notice a certain similarity between the two. This is neither coincidence nor laziness. Both environments and everyone within them (patients or students; medics or teachers and other staff) require and deserve the same special attention, care and respect from third parties working among them….

Working in the Healthcare Sector

Of course, as a building, a hospital, clinic, rehab centre or care home is not inherently different to a house, monument or office block made of the same materials. In one sense brick is brick, stucco is stucco and concrete is concrete and the same technical expertise, craftsmanship and professionalism is required regardless.

However, working in a healthcare facility is very different…

The safety of patients and staff cannot be compromised for a second and everything that can be done is done to keep the facility functioning safely and efficiently during the works – it also saves time and money.

Prelude Stone offers both the technical expertise to carry out the work efficiently and affordably and the vital experience of working in special and demanding environments.

We are always happy to discuss how we may help, now or in the future.

Respect, Expertise, Reliability – A Statement of Best Practice

Full DBS

Because of our work in schools and private homes, all our craftsmen have a full, current DBS Certificate.


Our work with well over 100 state schools demonstrates our affordability – that sector’s rigorous tendering process places as much importance on value-for-money as it does on workmanship, efficiency and genuine customer care.

From Scheduled Works & Maintenance to Emergency Call-Outs

We undertake one-off repair and restoration projects; pre-planned maintenance and offer, by arrangement, a 24/7, 365 days a year emergency service featuring fast response.


We will gladly supply references of our work in sensitive environments.

All building Styles Covered

We work across all architectural styles: from historic stonework to Victorian and Edwardian brick; from 20th century concrete, glass and steel to today’s high-tech new builds.
