Conservation and Heritage Architecture

Conservation and Heritage Architecture

The conservation of historical buildings, design and materials is an integral part of prolonging our heritage. At Inkpen Downie we have in-depth knowledge of conservation practice and extensive experience working with historic buildings.

As a RIBA Chartered Practice based in Colchester, Essex, we have a dedicated team who specialise in the conservation, restoration and development of historic buildings.

We understand that each setting requires a bespoke approach, whether that is the repair of historic stonework on a Grade I listed building such as, St. Catherines Church or sensitive conservation and repairs to 18th century designs like that of Little Court

We believe that both design and repair should relate to the context of these heritage and conservation settings and our Historical Building Consultancy services help greatly with this. Drawing on our knowledge and understanding of traditional materials means that as conservation architects we are able to sensitively work alongside important buildings. 

Our Director, Ben Downie, has been listed since 2006 as an Architect Accredited in Building Conservation (AABC) in recognition of his expertise in working with historic buildings. 

The assessment requires demonstration of professional expertise and active experience of building conservation and adaptation. 

The register was set up to assist clients in finding architects with specific historic buildings experience. Both Historic England and Historic Scotland have imposed conditions on grant aided work, making it a requirement that works of repair and conservation are expedited under the direction of a registered architect accredited in building conservation. 

We have award winning experience in Conservation and Heritage Architecture in Essex, Suffolk, London and beyond.
