Architects 4 You

We have more than 30 years of expertise in the conservation and repair of traditional buildings and Churches, skilled in using traditional building techniques.

For alterations, additions or repairs, we are experts in the field. We have the right experience in almost every aspect of work involving the historic structures and are deeply committed to protecting our built heritage. Looking after a historic church can be a daunting responsibility and leave people wondering where to turn when work is required. Getting the right advice from the right people who genuinely care about both the needs of the custodian and building is vital. The correct care of an old building can be expensive however costs can be greatly reduced if regular maintenance is carried out. When repairs are required it is easy to panic and work is often unnecessarily done in a heavy handed way which both costs much more and detrimentally effects the character of the building.
