Historic Buildings 

We provide expertise in historic buildings to assist with their conversion, repair or demolition. The impact on the setting of historic buildings also often needs to be reviewed as part of the planning process. 

We provide: 

  • Heritage statements and assessments 
  • Assessment and analysis of historic structures 
  • Recording and monitoring at all levels, as required by Planning Authorities 
  • Advice and assistance with Listed Building Consent 

Our historic building work ranges from the conversion of historic farm buildings to the recording of World Heritage sites.
