Who we are

A little about us

We are independent remedial consultants. That is, we are a consultancy which prescribes ‘remedies' for buildings, and we do so independently of any commercial agenda.

The consultancy was established in 2005 and benefits from almost 50 years of experience in the remedial treatment sector.

We are members of the Property Care Association (formerly British Wood Preserving and Damp-proofing Association) and the Ulster Architectural Heritage Society.

Ray McCleery CSRT

Ray commenced his career in the remedial treatment industry in 1974, when he joined Rentokil. In 1992 he and a colleague formed a new property care business, trading as McCleery Mathison Ltd. The company rapidly developed an enviable reputation, and became regarded by many professional clients as the foremost remedial treatment provider in Northern Ireland. As a result, the firm was entrusted with inspecting, repairing and treating countless buildings, including many important and historic structures.

In 1999, Ray qualified with the BWPDA as a Certificated Surveyor in Remedial Treatment. Following the retirement of his business partner in 2005, he then recognised that his experience, knowledge and skills could be used to meet the local need for an independent remedial consultant. Ray has since been commissioned to survey and report upon a multitude of diverse properties in the UK and Ireland.
