Our Technical Conservation Expertise

The work of each of our Local Offices is underpinned by the expertise of our Conservation Teams working nationally, which include specialist architects and surveyors, structural engineers, architectural conservators and quantity surveyors.

Our Conservation Department specialises in dealing with the practical, technical and scientific aspects of deteriorating building materials and systems of all types and their treatment.

They do this by developing and promoting evidence-based technical policy, standards and best practice and providing specialist advice within Historic England and to the heritage sector on the conservation of the wider historic environment. They also manage consultant scientists, academics, building professionals, conservators and craftsmen who assist with this work.

Opportunities for engaging our Conservation Teams which provide specialist technical support and advice are prioritised locally, so please address any enquiry to your Local Office in the first instance.
