Conservation Architecture (RIBA Conservation Register)
Britain is renown throughout the world for its rich architectural heritage which stretches over thousands of years. Many historic buildings and heritage assets are protected by Heritage Protection Legislation (Grade I, Grade II*, Grade II etc) and therefore require careful, considered work and understanding to conserve the essential character of the building or asset. We can guide you through the process of working on a historic building, and ensure that your historic fabric is conserved for future generations to enjoy.
In addition to buildings protected by Heritage Protection Legislation, much of Britain’s building stock was constructed before 1919, and as such our knowledge of conservation practice, principles and philosophy helps to inform our decisions and enhance the essential character of your property.
The RIBA Conservation Register – an introduction
"The RIBA seeks to further the conservation, adaptation, restoration, protection and rehabilitation of monuments, buildings, groups of buildings and sites which, because of their architectural merit and/or historical significance, form part of the heritage of our built environment. It is RIBA policy to promote architectural conservation as an integral part of the practice of architecture.
To assist clients in the selection of an architect to provide them with professional services in architectural conservation, the RIBA has developed an accreditation system to recognise differing levels of specialist expertise."
The RIBA Conservation Register enables those looking to commission work on heritage buildings to find architects with the specific skills and experience they require, encompassing all aspects of historic building conservation, repair and maintenance.
