At SCL Construction we are expert builders who are fully capable of project managing complex building, construction and refurbishment works on Grade I, II* and II listed buildings. Also known as heritage properties, their unique and exceptional status requires specialised planning and design, whilst there are limitations on the type of alterations you can make.
Grade listed buildings are:
- Protected buildings of special interest
- Properties deemed to have value worth preserving for future generations
- Important historical sites
As a result, it’s essential you’re permitted to carry out any proposed building works on a listed building, whether it is a private or commercial property. To undertake building works you will require Listed Building Consent from your local planning authority – we are available to help you through this process including submitting plans that adhere to all requirements.
Listed building works – London, Kent and Surrey
Our team of experts will work carefully and creatively to ensure all work remains true to the history of the property, adding value and style in a respectful and complimentary way.
Work we provide includes but is not limited to:
- Upgrading the structure
- Introducing sustainable technology
- Mechanical changes
- Ventilation installations
- Applying new insulation
Careful conservation designs can restore a building to its former glory and even help to sustain its quality and make future maintenance a more streamlined process. In a small number of cases, it may be appropriate for a heritage organisation to oversee specific aspects, particularly if a building has previously shown signs of deterioration.
At SCL Construction we are proud of our work on listed buildings, and we would be delighted to help you with a renovation or extension. To enquire about working with us on your project, please call 01737 420126.
Our process for listed buildings
We appreciate that this process is unusual and even daunting to some, but we ensure that it is simple and rewarding for our clients. Once our team and a client have secured permission to complete proposed works on a Grade Listed building, we ensure all aspects remain true to the history of the property and add value in a respectful way.
Our priority is always client satisfaction. By choosing us, you are deciding to establish a comfortable, understanding working relationship, which keeps you clued in on every stage of the project taking place.
From conception to completion, we will talk you through exactly what to expect, so there will be no surprises and you can be safe in the knowledge that you fully understand the extent of the work taking place.
We are always more than happy to answer any questions that you have along the way, and our team will always work hard to overcome any challenges that may occur when working with older properties.
Alterations made easy
At SCL Construction we take great pride in the work we provide across the field, including our conservation work. We carefully restore buildings to their former glory, adding a refreshing take to sustain the property’s quality.
By working with us, you are assured that the work we provide is in keeping, and will be beneficial for years to come. We are passionate about providing only the best services with great customer satisfaction.
Highly skilled approach
We have worked on many listed buildings and take the utmost care to ensure our work adheres to all guidelines whilst meeting your requirements.
Most recently, we provided an office strip out and refurbishment of a Grade II listed building in Westminster, London. Taking 20 weeks to complete, we transformed the space into a spectacular facility. The results celebrate the historic features, but with a refreshingly modern and spacious interior.
