Restoring, RESPECTING and evolving: our approach to historic buildings
The UK’s heritage and history – particularly its historic buildings – are the envy of countries across the globe. Our clients understand the responsibility that comes with owning an historic building and we help them to preserve these unique assets while exploring their value for the long term.
We work with clients including the National Trust, the Imperial War Museum and Cambridge University colleges. They come to Bidwells because they want a property partner who has respect for, and understanding of, our built heritage.
We start by assessing your site’s level of heritage significance, then we suggest various development and enhancement opportunities that you might explore. We highlight the potential value that each scenario would bring, as well as the possible challenges involved. Wherever we need to, we introduce the expertise of specialist colleagues from across our firm to support your project.
Some of the ways we can help with your heritage project:
Providing strategic planning advice on heritage matters
Handling proposals for new development, alterations or extensions
Helping to unlock issues that may come up during the planning process
Overseeing the tendering process prior to construction or conservation projects
