Listed Buildings

Listed properties require an entirely different approach to normal building stock. The older a building is, the more likely it is to be listed. All buildings erected before 1700 that “contain a significant proportion of their original fabric” will be listed. Most buildings built between 1700 and 1840 are listed. After 1840 more selection is exercised and “particularly careful selection” is applied after 1945. Buildings less than 30 years old are rarely listed unless they are of outstanding quality and under threat.

The main reason to employ the services of a specialist heritage builder is that the listed property spectrum spans almost one thousand years. During this time building techniques and practices changed considerably. Our team is comprised of building experts whose experience ranges from Norman churches through modern day.

Below you will find some recent examples of listed properties that we have been involved with.
