Building Recording

Alterations to historic buildings can lead to requirements for archaeological recording work. On these occasions standing building surveys are often required by the planning authority to allow any information to be recorded prior to alterations or restoration work taking place.

Our team of building surveyors are highly skilled in the recording and analysis of historic buildings. We can develop recording strategies, in conjunction with the planning authority archaeologists, to ensure buildings are adequately recorded using the most appropriate digital technology. We can also work with conservation architects to provide you with advice on the treatment of historic buildings, and we can assist with applications for listed building consent.
