Conservation & Heritage

When it comes to heritage engineering, a detailed knowledge of historic materials and techniques is essential. Here at renaissance, we have several conservation-accredited (CARE) engineers with the skills and knowledge needed to work with buildings of cultural and historic significance.

We’re passionate about our built heritage and work collaboratively with other experts to develop solutions that are sympathetic to the original construction. We always work in conjunction with the client team, conservation officers and other bodies including Historic England to ensure that everything we do is in the best interest of the building.

By undertaking detailed surveys at the start and where necessary, proposing opening up work and material testing, we can develop a clear understanding of the capacity of the existing structure. Based on this understanding, we can advise you and your design team on how new interventions can be accommodated to minimise structural works while providing buildable solutions.

With renaissance, you get peace of mind that your heritage project will be given the respect it’s due throughout its delivery.

The conservation and heritage engineering work we did on the award-winning The Press project perfectly highlights our considered approach.
