Conservation works

Lovell Chen offers specialist heritage and architectural services for the restoration and reconstruction of buildings and structures.
Our work is underpinned by a thorough understanding of building fabric and how it performs. Recognising that time and cost are key factors in project delivery, our approach is always strategic — involving analysis of project costs, the prioritising of works and, when needed, providing for staged delivery.
Lovell Chen’s conservation experts are part of the architecture team, and we work closely with an extensive network of experienced specialist contractors, to address the complex challenges of heritage places.
As well as requiring in-depth knowledge of traditional and modern construction techniques, works to older buildings often means bringing them into compliance with current building regulations, especially in relation to environmental sustainability, disability access and fire safety. We look for imaginative ways to address this and aim to achieve a balance between client/user expectations, statutory obligations, successful heritage outcomes and long term viability.
