This work has included statements of significance, listing rebuttals, certificate of immunity applications and the full suite of documents to support the appeal and public inquiry process. Fiona has worked on buildings designated at the very highest level including several Grade I and Grade II* listed properties. This includes the restoration of the Banqueting House (Grade I), refurbishment of St James’s Palace residential apartments (Grade I), the conversion of Ironbridge power station (World Heritage Site) and the extension of Kensington Palace Orangery (Grade I). She has also undertaken several townscape assessments to support tall buildings in Lewisham, Willesden Green and Mortlake.
Consequently Fiona is adept at managing sites with an array of intersecting designations, often resulting in a complex interplay of associated significances. As such Fiona has developed a robust project management style, adhering to timescales whilst mindful of the intrinsic long term nature of conservation projects
