ENGAGE A CONSERVATION ARCHITECT?
old building is unique and benefits from individual assessment - general advice available in the media
can only go so far and there are few 'one-size-fits-all'
can provide a full 'beginning-to-end' architect's service - or examine individual building problems, however small
- we are keen to find the solutions that fit our clients' budgets
and benefit their buildings
the conservation ideal is minimum intervention using traditional
materials - which can often translate into less cost and a more
sustainable result than conventional approaches
happy to provide initial - or ongoing - specialist conservation input to assist other
architects and consultants, in-house teams or
even homeowners' DIY - whichever is appropriate
