REA Ltd have extensive experience of working with heritage and listed properties across a wide range of different building types, including country houses, churches, and cottages. We work regularly with historic buildings of different construction such as brick, stone and cob, as seen in the diverse range of buildings in the New Forest area and beyond. Our aim is to conserve and enhance our built heritage for future generations and help owners and those responsible for historic and listed buildings.

We work with special attention and care when working with heritage buildings, providing our clients with expertise and technical advice for both heritage planning applications, repairs and renovation, and work proactively with Conservation and Planning Officers. Whilst the historic environment is a complex subject, managed by a range of planning legislation and planning policies, we have a good understanding of local and national conservation guidelines, ensuring that our work aligns with the standards required in this field.

As each historic building is unique, we tailor our services to the specific needs and requirements of each project. Our IHBC and RICS conservation accredited staff would be pleased to advise on extensions, alterations, defects and repairs, and can guide your project through the appropriate stages, such as Listed Building Consent.

If you are planning a renovation or repair to your listed or heritage property and need consultancy and guidance, please get in touch.
