Heritage Consultancy

Heritage plays a key role in society. It improves our wellbeing and quality of life, and the way we perceive places. It engages us, giving us a sense of belonging and identity.

A huge proportion of our buildings are historic, and bring specific challenges – both in making them accessible to everyone, and in reducing their energy usage. It takes understanding, care and creativity to do this without damaging what makes the building special.

We unlock heritage assets by understanding their past significance, present use and future potential. This knowledge helps us to decide whether buildings should be adapted for new uses, sensitively restored, or enhanced with contemporary additions.

Our specialist experience includes:

  • Grade I, II and II* listed buildings
  • Undesignated heritage assets and work in conservation areas
  • Listed building consents
  • Historic assessments
  • Conservation management plans
  • Significance plans
  • Adaptive reuse
  • 20th century historic assets
  • Working with Historic England
  • Funding application support
