The consultancy provides planning and design advice to property owners, developers, designers and local planning authorities that promotes the concept that, while historic buildings and sites are a finite, precious resource, ‘once lost they are gone forever’, they also need to have a viable use so that they can be properly maintained and remain in good condition for future generations to enjoy.
The consultancy helps clients to find the balance between preservation and change by thoroughly researching a building or site’s history to provide an understanding of its heritage significance and then designing and obtaining the necessary permissions for changes that will both preserve the identified heritage significance and satisfy the client’s needs.
The consultancy supports development at all stages, either as a sole practice or as part of team: heritage appraisal, design, impact assessment, planning applications, justification statements, appeals, expert witness and implementation.
