If you have a listed building or a period property in need of repair, refurbishment or renovation, it makes good sense to use a company of reputable builders. Arundel & South Downs Renovations Ltd has experience in this type of work. We have completed a sizeable number of listed building renovations in the past. We use our knowledge of conservation to provide customers with a considerate range of services.
We are a trusted name for listed building work in Chichester, East Preston, Pagham, Pulborough, Wittering and in all surrounding West Sussex and South East areas. Arundel & South Downs Renovations Ltd combines a series of trade disciplines with a genuine project management service.
This means we can handle the job from conception to completion as a single company of builders and tradesmen. We work inside an agreed budget and timescale to deliver high-end results. Because we already have such vast experience in property refurbishments and renovations, making the transition to listed building work comes naturally to our team.
A listed building is a property which, due to its special architectural or historical interest, has protected status. The status covers the entire property, inside and out. This can make listed building renovations particularly sensitive, so some builders prefer to avoid this type of work. At Arundel & South Downs Renovations Ltd, we embrace it and will renovate listed properties anywhere in Arundel, Chichester, East Preston, Pagham, Pulborough, Wittering, or the surrounding areas.
Because buildings of this type vary, we check which features the listed status covers and then plan our work accordingly.
Listed properties are subject to additional planning control so any building work undertaken on them could require special consent as well as standard approval. If alterations or repairs might affect the special interest of a property, they will need consent. Our builders comply with all regulations related to listed building renovations, working closely with local authorities across the region at all times.
Arundel & South Downs Renovations Ltd can help and advise on listed building consent and planning approval.
Like most types of building work, listed building renovations include a broad range of services which cover structural alterations, refurbishments, repairs and retrofitting. One of the prerequisites to gaining planning approval on a listed property is the use of materials which preserve the original appearance, and the authenticity, of the build.
The windows and roof tiles are just two features on a listed building that will require like-for-like replacement materials. We have a talent for sourcing such materials, even those other builders see as hard to find.
To see what previous customers in the Arundel, Chichester, East Preston, Pagham, Pulborough and Wittering areas have to say about our work, please take the time to read their testimonials.
An extension makes for a great addition to any home but if you live in a listed building, you have additional factors to consider. The extension shouldn’t dominate, and the exterior appearance must match that of the main part of the property. This means builders have to use materials which complement those used during the original build. In some cases, local authorities and building control departments may consider modern materials with a traditional aesthetic as acceptable.
Like listed building renovations, extensions of this kind need bespoke building work. This presents challenges for some companies. For Arundel & South Downs Renovations Ltd, this is all very much in a day’s work and a welcome challenge.
Most work to the inside of historic buildings, unless there are major structural alterations, will not require planning permission. It is always important to check with your local authority in Arundel, Chichester, East Preston, Pagham, Pulborough, Wittering or West Sussex first, just in case the work needs approval. Our builders can perform repairs, replace fixtures, retrofit features, and install kitchens and bathrooms.
Most types of building work should be straightforward. With our many years of experience in listed building renovations, we work with you to make sure the status of the property stays intact and that our services never compromise heritage values.
