Last week, our building surveyors were involved with several interesting projects involving listed buildings.

Listed building surveys

Listed Building Survey in Greenwich, London

A Grade II* property surveyed by Whitworth

We were asked to provide ongoing services for the interior refurbishment of a Grade II* property that we had surveyed last year. A Grade II* listing defines a building as particularly important with more than special interest. Whitworth has worked on a range of Grade II* listed buildings, such as a property on Angel Hill in Bury St Edmunds and a historic timber framed building with a Scheduled Ancient Monument moat.

Heritage Statement consultancy

A second property involved the preparation of a Heritage Statement in connection with repairs and some replacement of windows. A Heritage Statement is usually required by local authorities alongside proposals affecting a heritage building. The statement contains an analysis of the significance of heritage assets, and the potential impact of the proposed development upon its historic value.

Pre-purchase inspection

The third property was a pre-purchase inspection, providing advice to the client on what they need to consider when purchasing a property of this type and age. Pre-purchase inspections will reveal elements of a building that may not be obvious to potential buyers, such as structural damage, asbestos and rising damp.
