Vallis & Hall has considerable experience in managing change within the historic environment, providing expert advice to assist in understanding heritage sensitivities and capacity for change. Working alongside our design and architectural services, we are able to advise on the significance of historic buildings and their settings, as well as provide advice and support throughout the design process to ensure proposals are responsive to ‘significance’ and inform the consent process.
We have extensive experience of dealing with a wide range of issues affecting heritage assets, including listed buildings, non-designated heritage assets, historic landscapes, Conservation Areas and historic townscapes. Our experience ranges from alterations and extensions to new development within historic contexts, as well as more strategic work in the form of conservation management plans and whole estate plans.
