The Historic Building Advisory Service

The Historic Building Advisory Service

The Historic Building Advisory Service is a specialist heritage consultancy providing independent advice and assistance on all aspects of work to historic buildings, man-made structure or landscape dating from before 1945. From iron-age forts, through medieval churches and Georgian houses to 19th C factories and art deco flats.

There is no size constraint to what we help with, varying from open landscape to small cottages and large communal spaces. We work for property owners and managers, together with professional construction and property teams across the UK and Europe in all sectors of the built heritage.

We work holistically with you to understand your requirements, ambitions and any constraints of the project, such as lifestyle arrangements, budgetary matters, ecological aspects, and other ideas or concerns you may have. With that background we are best able to tailor our advice and services to help you to achieve what you want.

We provide a range of services at any stage of the project such as:
development of concept proposals and ideas
pre-purchase assessments
condition surveys
re-use and redevelopment appraisals
designs for alterations and extensions

Further services includes
listed building and other planning applications
heritage impact assessments
repair specifications
statutory regulation submissions
party wall matters
archaeological recording and investigation.
