HEAD OF CONSERVATION
Matthew joined Austin-Smith:Lord in 2018. An accredited conservation architect, he has worked on conservation and regeneration projects across sectors, for public and third sector clients. His expertise in the conservation of historic building fabric extends to stonework, brickwork and timber repairs and internal decoration as well as introduction of sensitive interventions in historic settings.
Many of Matthew’s projects have required the assembly of complex funding packages. He has secured grants for clients from bodies including Historic England, the Architectural Heritage Fund and the National Lottery Heritage Fund. He is presently working on two of Wales’ largest NLHF grant funded projects, the revitalisation of Grade I listed Old College in Aberystwyth and the conservation and refurbishment of Grade I listed Newport Transporter Bridge.
