Heritage Architect

There are nearly 400,000 listed buildings and other heritage assets in England alone. A heritage architect is essential when extending, refurbishing or renovating such sensitive pieces of our national culture and history. You can trust PMR Architecture to oversee your heritage project and take it from feasibility to completion.

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

Our architects are experienced in working with listed buildings and within areas of outstanding natural beauty and conservation areas.

We can 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.

We will also supply a set of detailed drawings to the relevant local authority, and this will usually involve liaising with a heritage consultant, 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.
