We like old buildings. We also like new buildings. But what we like even better is ensuring that old buildings continue to serve a purpose and our aim is to ensure custodians of properties realise the full potential that their buildings provide. This can be achieved through a sincere respect for the past, coupled with an understanding that change has always occurred within the historic environment and an acknowledgement that it can be accommodated into the future. We believe this applies to conservation projects as much as to new developments in sensitive historic settings.
