Historic Buildings can offer unique development opportunities, enacting a sense of ‘place’ while simultaneously serving as focal points for social interaction. Our heritage specialists can provide practical advice on the treatment of historic buildings and their incorporation into a scheme of works. In whole or in part, the historic environment is valued as a cultural, social and economic asset that makes a major contribution to the quality of peoples lives.
The preservation of historic buildings and areas of architectural or historic interest is a fundamental aspect of the government’s commitment towards the protection of the historic environment. Effective management of such structures often relies on detailed programme of archaeological building investigation and recording (ABIR).
Historic Buildings are valuable community assets, offering unique development opportunities and focal points for community cohesion
ABIR assessments can be a complicated and time-consuming process, however, the use of modern recording and survey technology, 3D modelling and GIS based mapping MOSPA can significantly reduce the amount of time required. Once the initial data has been collected detailed structural plans can be used to highlight areas of archaeological interest and historical value alongside recommendations for conservation and management.
