The historic environment is all around us and few construction projects do not impact in one way or another on a historic asset somewhere along the line. It is important to understand the full significance of a heritage asset before making any attempt to change it or affect its setting. A thorough appreciation of the historic development of an asset often shapes the best design solutions as they will be inherently “organic” to the asset. An understanding of historic construction methods and materials is also important in shaping the best solutions for its future.
