Our knowledgeable contractors are able to offer advice on a variety of matters including repair schedules, technical solution, site surveys, architect specifications, the procurement of sustainable and locally sourced materials. We also offer a dedicated project management service to monitor and observe larger works which may impact upon the historic environment.
We are able to immediately draw upon the services of our in-house building archaeologists to work alongside the site contractors. In addition, we can advise on the protection and management of protected species which will avoid lengthy and costly delays to your project. We offer a full pre-application assessment of the structure in advance of any planning application which will guide the client and mitigate against of any unforeseen issues. Our technical knowledge and experience, allied to awareness of Scheduled Monuments, Listed Building and Conservation Area legislation, gives us an ideal background to discuss and agree matters of detail with the relevant planning authorities. The company ethos is to source materials locally to reduce the carbon footprint and any specialist sub-contractors utilised during the project will be obtained from the surrounding regions in order to create and maintain traditional skills.
