échafaudages Fondation du Château de Chillon
Restauration des façades

Conservation work

Chillon is an ideal example of a conservation and restoration building site. Since 1892 work has been overseen by a Technical Commission of architects, historians and heritage specialists.

Work on the buildings can be of very different nature and importance, from minor repairs to major restoration projects.

All work is carried out respecting the current ethical standards for heritage buildings. Anything added is done in a modern fashion, while conservation and restoration work are integrated discreetly into the fabric of the buildings.

A particular aspect of this work, as far as Chillon is concerned, is that the castle is open all year round, so the requirements of the work need to take into account the pleasure the public has a right to expect while visiting the castle.
