Works to Listed Buildings, Buildings in Conservation Areas, Buildings in World Heritage Zones and Sites of Special Scientific Interest

Aditus regularly deals with listed buildings and works in conservation areas and World Heritage Zones across all types of development.  We have established good working relationships with local conservation officers, archaeological officers and service providers and are versed in modern and traditional building techniques, enabling us to propose sensible and innovative solutions for developments where there are conflicting priorities between clients and statutory bodies.  We always aim to maximise the design benefit for clients whilst balancing the need for conservation and enhancement of our country’s unique built heritage.
