We understand old buildings and the people that use them or live in them.   Whether it is the replacement of a rotten lintel or the conversion of a Listed barn, we use our experience and relationship with the local Conservation Officers to deliver ‘common sense’ and sympathetic solutions utilising sustainable materials and methodologies where possible. 

We have a wide range of experience, a sample of which is as follows:

  • Structural surveys of historic barns to support planning applications for conversion
  • Structural surveys of Listed buildings
  • Detailed repair schedules for all material types
  • Site supervision of conservation work
  • Detailed sympathetic concrete repairs to Listed concrete framed buildings
  • Detailed analysis of complex structural forms to prepare cost effective repairs
