Understanding the history, context and significance of a site is a key factor in securing successful planning applications, Listed building consents and many types of funding.
We assess and balance each building’s historic significance against its physical condition and vulnerability. We can advise of opportunities to maximise the heritage value, provide guidance on the management, maintenance and environmental protection of buildings and sites. Having completed several award-winning conservation projects, we understand heritage is about the context and not just the building fabric and this is the starting point for us to ensure that the unique story of its use is maintained.
Our approach to conservation architecture is very much focussed on retaining and highlighting the innate features of the building, working closely with English Heritage and other regulatory bodies to translate the fabric of the building for its new use.
