Listed Buildings require specialist advice and Historic England, Cadw and other Statutory Bodies recommend that survey work should be carried out by those with Building Conservation qualifications and experience.
We are highly qualified and respected in the field of Conservation Architecture and have many years’ experience working with traditional properties from cottages to significant Estates. We have a large portfolio of Historic Buildings and add considerable value to projects that we are involved with.
A bank or building society survey exists simply for the lender to check the value of their security, it provides very little practical information for the purchaser .
Dyfi Architecture offer independent surveys that cover the condition of the building(s) and highlight work required with estimated costs, much as one would expect from a qualified surveyor involved in a detailed house purchase survey. The difference lies in that we work for our Clients rather than a mortgage company and we are also able to address specific points in relation to Architectural and Planning matters, ours is not a ‘box ticking exercise’ but a thorough investigation.
Listed and Traditional Buildings require a specific methodology, we can provide details and suggest ways this can be incorporated into future plans and maintenance regimes to ensure that the building thrives for many generations.
We produce a ‘stand-alone’ document that can often highlight problems, expose inappropriate works that have taken place and outlines a recommended process for proceeding with the Clients aims and objectives for their home.
