Early in the life of a project of restoration or alteration, we can prepare Conservation Plans and Statements as well as Heritage Impact Assessments to identify what makes the building important and how any impact due to the works can be managed or mitigated.
At the beginning of a project, we prepare Conservation Plans and Statements to identify and define what makes a building significant. This process guides the owners and their design team using international conservation charters and stakeholder engagement.
At development stage we routinely prepare Conservation Plans and Heritage Impact Assessments to allow an assessment of any potential conflicts between proposed plans and the architectural and historic significance of the building. This then allows us to suggest mitigating works to allow development to proceed without impacting negatively the significance of the site.
At all times, Chris aims to provide a pragmatic view of conservation making it accessible to everyone.
