Beech Cottage

Working in Conservation areas is something that we have lots of experience of. Our conservation work has included historic dock buildings in Gloucester, Grade II listed buildings in central Birmingham, Coventry and Colchester, and listed terraces in Royal Leamington Spa.

In the case of Beech Cottage in Hampton In Arden we were asked to increase floor space, while maintaining character, and taking care to work around an existing timber frame and roof truss. The undiscovered underground spring that lay below the planned extension was something else to consider a bit later on.

Working closely with local authority conservation architects, engineers, ecologists and a client with a background in very advanced engineering, we were pleased to help deliver a project where it really is impossible to see the join between new and existing.
