Listed buildings and scheduled monuments represent the country’s best heritage assets and it is a privilege to work with them. The most successful projects understand the building or monument and its setting fully before embarking on any changes. This helps to inform future management and makes sure that changes do not inadvertently damage the building through the wrong materials, or badly designed development within its setting. Importantly our approach also ensures a smoother passage through the planning process.
We have developed a methodology that rapidly researches the evolution of buildings or monuments within their setting, identifies their most special characteristics and those elements which could readily be changed. This then highlights how designated heritage buildings and monuments can be adapted to meet modern day requirements while still being national treasures and nationally important.
