Listed buildings, or those in conservation areas, need specialist care and require the use of the traditional materials and techniques, as well as expert knowledge on restrictions regarding amendments and alterations. Alterations to historic buildings often result in requirements for recording as part of the planning and development process. Andrew McColl has extensive experience in producing the necessary surveys and reports.
Whether the listed property you own, or are planning to purchase, is Grade I, Grade II* or Grade II, we can advise on the advantages and disadvantages, processes and pitfalls of owning or buying a listed or historic building. We can advise on building and maintenance work you should and should not carry out on your property, giving details of materials and traditional techniques which should be adhered to, to ensure the property is in a good state of repair and well maintained.
Andrew McColl has a particular passion and interest in dealing with historic and listed buildings, and is a longstanding member and support of SPAB. We can provide tailor made structural building surveys to assist with your important decision of whether to buy a heritage listed building.
