Heritage Consultancy

We understand that the historic environment presents sites that are unique and quite often complex. Our specialist conservation knowledge allow us to meticulously examine every detail of a building to ensure that the solutions devised preserve and enhance prestigious properties.

Our experience also means we recognise the importance of these heritage structures in contributing to the quality and identification of places, as well as their role in the health and well-being of communities.

With consideration of their special value, we are able to restore, conserve, and adapt the historic environment.

How does HPA create new lives for the most modest heritage structure and the most complex World Heritage Site alike?

We bring the same enthusiasm, creativity and knowledge to each project
Conservation is concerned with the bigger picture and the minutiae of a project at the same time. Our approach is the same, irrespective of scale and complexity, and is based upon thorough understanding and years of experience.

On every project we will advocate for our clients and for the heritage structures
We seek to create positive outcomes that benefit both.

Through positive conversations we provide information, consult with stakeholders, and engage authorities and communities
We work together to support our clients and design teams at key stages of development.

Our team includes accredited conservation architects, technologists, and heritage consultants
We collaborate across the studio to share our deep understanding of conservation and heritage.

Our conservation expertise is concerned with the philosophy of repair as much as it is with technical detail
We consistently question and resolve issues in a creative and respectful manner, based on a sound understanding of the significance and condition of the building or place.
