CONSERVATION

CONSERVATION

Our architectural conservation work is underpinned by an ethical and intellectual approach to repairing, enhancing and re-using historic buildings and sites.

We work in partnership with Historic England, Historic Environment Scotland, Cadw, planning authorities and other conservation bodies to best understand the significance and value of each historic asset before work is carried out. Our conservation-accredited architects have considerable experience of collaborating with other heritage professionals including archaeologists, conservators and stone, lead, slate and glass specialists.

If required, a conservation management plan will be produced before restoration or intervention takes place.  We treat each historic building or site individually, seeking to interpret its significance, context, social history and original and evolving architectural concepts.  We prefer early consultation with key stakeholders from the heritage sector and local community to inform our approach and make decisions that are consensual and appropriate.  Fundamentally, we believe that old buildings have enormous potential for ongoing and future use and, where suitable, can be re-invented with considered modern alterations and extensions.
