Building Conservation and Period home restoration

Do you require and architect experience in building conservation for your period home restoration? At CPR Architects, we have the experience and RIAI accreditation to work as Grade 3 Conservation Architects. The restoration and adaptation of a historic building requires skill, care and a detailed knowledge of the statutory requirements that this entails. A large part of our work is concerned with repair, restoration and conservation of the existing building fabric. Our clients are drawn to the beautiful features craftsmanship and materials which come with such buildings. But the demands of modern lifestyles often necessitate remodelling and reimagining a building while retaining its key characteristics. This in our experience, can be a daunting project for our clients. Planning permission is needed for work carried out on a Protected Structure that would materially affect its character. Owners or occupiers of protected structures are legally required to make sure that the structure does not become endangered through neglect, decay, damage or harm. By consulting a conservation architect at the outset about restoring and adapting a building you may avoid costly mistakes. But the reward is a beautiful historic home to be enjoyed for many years. So, to encourage you on your journey we present here our residential conservation projects to demonstrate to you the potential of a historic home.
