Our national heritage is one of our most valuable assets, so we take a sensitive approach to the preservation and regeneration of our built environment.

Our experience extends to every type and scale of conservation work (and all listed grades) and ranges from the grandest castle to the humblest greenhouse, from church spires to Victorian public toilets.

Our first task is always to ensure that we understand a building’s historic and architectural significance.

This is carried out by our conservation-qualified chartered building surveyors and architects, some of whom are also accredited in conservation. The Strides conservation team can provide a complete service including:

  • Preparation of historic building assessments or statements of significance
  • Conservation management plans
  • Historic building impact assessments
  • Conservation area appraisals
  • Preparation and management of planning and listed building consent applications
  • Ad-hoc specialist conservation advice

We are experienced in preparing designs for new buildings in sensitive and historic environments and our designs always complement and respect the historic context. Our conservation surveyors, who also appreciate the aesthetic qualities of historic buildings, are highly skilled in conducting historic building surveys and in specifying and managing appropriate repair work contracts and maintenance programmes.
