Architectural conservation is just one facet of our practice. Our philosophy for conservation is to prolong the material, historical, and design integrity of built heritage through carefully planned interventions. Two members of our staff Russell Trudgen and Richard Jaques are architects accredited in conservation and make design decisions of appropriate intervention based on our critical experience of working with our cultural heritage.
At Shelley Methodist Church the priority was to make this Grade II listed church roof structurally sound and waterproof. The photographs below illustrate the process of protecting the interior of the church while the stone roof tiles were removed, and the timber trusses repaired before recovering.
