Williams Lester has established a strong reputation for projects within the Conservation Sector. This has included extensive experience in designing within a historic setting such as Conservation and Special Character Areas, and within the proximity of Listed Buildings. When required, we have the in-house expertise to prepare Heritage Statements to support applications.

Whenever a project brief requires intervention, alteration to or restoration of a Heritage Asset, we always ensure that the appropriate research and analysis is undertaken, and that best Conservation practice is deployed. Where necessary, we work closely with respected Heritage Consultants to ensure this.

Conservation, of course, does not just relate to historic constraints, but also environmental and ecological ones. We are very familiar with overcoming the challenges of designing within sensitive natural settings such as SSSI’s, RAMSARS and National Parks, where, when required we seek the supporting advice of ecologists and arboriculturalists.
