Building Conservation

Historic Building Conservation

Building conservation advice including: building and condition surveys; defect analysis; advice on the care and repair of historic buildings. An historic buildings consultancy and advice on buildings at risk.

In the above case we carried out a pre-purchase listed building survey for this 16th Century, Grade II* listed building in Hertfordshire. Originally an open hall house with cross wings; later alterations, extensions and new front wall. After completion of the purchase we provided practical building conservation advice for initial repairs to the building. We then prepared the drawings and specifications for extensive repairs and alterations; prepared a heritage statement and obtained listed building consent. This was followed by contract management advice and ongoing building conservation advice.
