Historic Buildings and Conservation
Campbell Rees Associates Ltd specialise in the repair, adaptation and
extension of historic buildings and their settings. Our projects range from modest
extensions and barn conversions to major refurbishment.
Owners of historic listed buildings, in partnership with local planning authorities,
have rightly demanded that repair work use the best techniques available and that
alterations and extensions be carried out in a manner appropriate to the architectural
quality and historical significance of the building.
Our knowledge of architectural history, planning law and practical conservation
building construction enables us to offer expert advice on all aspects of historic
buildings. Our service can include design, cost evaluation, choosing the appropriate
contractor and administering the contract through to completion of the work.
Most importantly we can liaise with local authority conservation departments
to obtain the necessary approvals. We can negotiate with English Heritage and
other agencies over the grants which may be available and may be essential for
the project to proceed. We can also ensure that the vat payable is kept to the
minimum. Our services can be as limited or as extensive as the client requires
and would be agreed in writing before any work commences.
Graham Campbell has a Masters Degree in Historic Building Conservation and is
an approved architect to the Ely Diocese.
