Pre-Purchase Surveys and Statement of Historic Significance
A pre-purchase survey is one of the most valuable documents that any potential new owner should have in their possession before completing a building purchase, even more so when it relates to a period or protected building.
A requirement for listed building applications is a statement of historic significance which charts the history of the house.
Repairs & Maintenance
Historic buildings require a different approach to methods of repair compared to their modern counterparts. C20th products such as cement and water-proofers accelerate the decay of old buildings.
Renovation & Conversion
The renovation or change of use of an historic building requires great care, a sympathetic approach and a thorough understanding of the building's development.
Court Design & Conservation undertake commissions to design new buildings as well as extensions to existing structures. Their philosophy is one of good design, good use of space, and integration with the surroundings, both by the use of traditional and contemporary features.
Court Design & Conservation was established in 1997 by Andrew Hayes, a Chartered Building Surveyor, to advise and assist owners of period, listed or historic buildings with appropriate methods of building repair and to develop and adopt a sympathetic approach to alterations, extensions and conversions.
Court Design & Conservation can provide an extensive range of professional services from individual survey reports to a complete building project package.
