HISTORIC BUILDING ADVICE
When undertaking work on historic buildings professional advice is required to ensure that the appropriate materials and skills are utilised to complete the work to the correct standard. Our team can ensure that you receive the right advice and guidance to make your project a success, completed on time and within budget.
OBTAINING GRANTS AND FUNDING
Getting the money to complete your project is no easy task with many funding options being available, competition is often high with the application process needing to be carefully completed. We can source the correct grant for your project then complete the application process for you and provide any specific reports and architectural plans which may be required.
PLANNING & CONSENTS
When undertaking work to a listed building be this grade I, grade II* or grade II listed building consent will be required and an application made to the local authority in your area, currently local authorities do not charge a fee for this application. It may also be necessary to obtain planning permission and building regulation approval for the work for which the local authority will charge a fee. These applications will often require detailed architectural drawings and reports and in some cases will attract input from organisations such as Historic England, Cadw, SPAB and others. We can help with obtaining permissions and approvals for your project by completing all of the applications and providing all of the required information.
