Typical building projects range in construction budget value from around £80,000 to over £5m. Planning and design projects can be of any size or scope.  We excel in building and area conservation, urban design, new buildings in historic settings and expert witness services. Commissions include the Government's historic estate and areas of world heritage value. We take the long view, reflect shared regard for heritage as public and private assets and believe without the past there is no present, without the present no future.

We are registered with or members of relevant industry bodies, including RIBA, RTPI, IHBC, and the Urban Design Group on whose sites our relevant projects and information can also be seen.
