Who We Are

Abacus Stone Conservation specialises in work to ecclesiastical, historic and listed properties in and around Exeter, Devon & the South West.

The business is based just outside Exeter and is owned and run by David Cornick. After completing a degree in Architecture, David pursued a career in stone masonry. This has led to both an academic and practical approach to all masonry and conservation work.

David has worked for over 16 years as a stonemason and has worked throughout the mainland and Channel Islands. Throughout this time he has accumulated experience and knowledge of a wide variety of materials and buildings.

Abacus Stone Conservation is experienced in providing advice and undertaking architectural stonework repairs, lime mortar pointing, lime mortar repairs, lime renders and lime plasters.

All work is carried out to a high standard. Communication with the client is maintained throughout the programme of works allowing time for discussions about important details and overseeing and maintaining the project budget.

We work with a wide range of clients include English Heritage, Local Authorities, parish churches and private clients.
