Heritage Buildings

PMR Architecture has a wide range of experience in working with listed buildings, historic projects and buildings within conservation areas. From sensitively reinstating historic fabric, to extending a heritage building to create much needed space, PMR can help you complete your project in a way that is sympathetic to the character of the existing building.

A holistic and creative approach to design and build constraints

Few construction projects present as many challenges as listed buildings and other sites of similar cultural and historical importance. A heritage architect from a RIBA Chartered practice is essential if you are to manage this daunting process.

The first challenge is to assess the feasibility of the project, which is likely to involve some compromise. By thinking outside of the box, our talented team of architects can often find solutions within the most challenging design contexts.

Navigating planning permission and building regulations

We are experienced in working with listed buildings, conservation areas, historic building materials and heritage buildings.

We can help you with listed building consent, planning permission, provide drawings to the appropriate level of detail to expedite the planning process and give your project the best chance of being given the go ahead.

To ensure the project goes smoothly we will liaise with a heritage consultants, structural engineers and other professionals. Hiring the right construction team is also critical, and we can take care of the tendering process if needed to ensure your project is in safe and thoughtful hands.

Clear and effective communication throughout

We are committed to making the journey from feasibility to completion as simple to understand as possible. We will also communicate clearly and provide regular progress reports throughout. This is especially important where listed buildings are concerned, due to the financial and reputational implications of mistakes.
