Heritage Structure Approval

It is crucial for all members of the design team to comprehend the immense value and significance of a listed building, regardless of its grade (I, II*, or II). These buildings hold not only architectural significance but also embody a rich historical legacy that has significantly influenced and shaped our society over the years

To ensure the success of any project involving a listed building, thorough research into its historical background is essential. This investigation uncovers the building’s past uses and reveals its significance in relation to historic events. Our collaborative approach empowers us to navigate this process effectively, identifying planning issues and devising strategies to restore and enhance your property to meet the expectations and requirements of modern living.

Undertaking projects on listed buildings subjects them to additional controls, both for interior and exterior modifications. Consequently, the planning application process becomes more intricate and is referred to as Listed Building Consent. Our expertise lies in providing comprehensive information to local and national authorities, such as English Heritage, which ensures the approval of these projects.

At our core, we understand the importance of historical preservation and seamlessly integrate it with contemporary needs. Our meticulous approach, backed by our collaborative efforts and extensive knowledge, guarantees a successful outcome for your listed building project.

We provide comprehensive advice before any commitment

When it comes to historic buildings, technical issues such as damp, deterioration, and damage often pose significant challenges. Leveraging our technical expertise, we specialise in providing comprehensive solutions to address these specific problems.

Through close collaboration with our team and other consultants, we offer a comprehensive range of expertise that enables us to deliver designs tailored to work harmoniously with listed buildings. Our approach ensures both cost-effectiveness and sensitive design solutions, taking into account factors such as budget, structure, services, health and safety, right from the early stages of the project.

Our architectural design package caters to various design preferences, whether it involves paying homage to the existing building or creating a contrasting and distinctive design. This comprehensive process covers all RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) work stages, starting from feasibility and concept design, progressing to planning and building regulations approved drawings with detailed specifications ready for tender and construction. Should you require it, we also offer contract administration services, including site inspections and ongoing monitoring to ensure the contractor adheres to the approved construction drawings, specifications, and the building contract.

With our expertise and commitment to delivering high-quality outcomes, we offer a seamless journey from the inception of the project to its completion, ensuring that your historic building receives the necessary care and attention it deserves.

Highly recommend CK Architectural. Chris and his team did a great job gaining planning permission for a new build and renovation of an existing property. We hit some dead ends with the planning officer but Chris found different ways of getting around the problems without going over budget.

For someone far removed from the building / planning industries the thought of where to start when thinking of a big extension project to my house (two story to the side and wrap around of semi-detached 3 bed) was a little daunting at first. Luckily, after obtaining a competitive quote, I enlisted the services of CK Architectural and have been very impressed with not only the service received but the ease at which they have made the whole process. After listening to my thoughts and the reasons for needing the extension work doing, the architect came up with a great design that encompassed everything that was needed. Even when I changed my mind over a couple of aspects, Donna, Chris and the team were quick to administer any alterations. Every visit to the house for measurements / planning etc has happened without a hitch with all members of the team we've encountered being punctual and professional at all times. The best thing has been by far the ease at which CK have made of getting all council and local authority sign off for the project. All I have needed to do is pay the fees at the required time, no stress involved and all went through seamlessly. I'm now at the stage where I have the drawings to hand and have submitted them to builders to obtain quotes. Importantly, the feedback so far from the builders indicates the project to be within the budget specifications I explained to CK during the first consultation. Very happy customer 🙂 Carl.
