Welcome to the Building Limes Forum

The Building Limes Forum exists to encourage expertise and understanding in the appropriate use of building limes and education in the standards of production, preparation, application and after-care. The Building Limes Forum is a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation with over 350 members in the UK and overseas, the majority being actively concerned with the repair of historic buildings or in the use of lime in new build.

There are independent Building Limes Forums in Ireland (Building Limes Forum Ireland), Scandinavia (Nordisk Forum for Bygningskalk), Italy (Forum Italiano Calce) and Switzerland. The Building Limes Forum has a chapter, not yet independent, in Australia.
