We are an Architects Practice based in Nottingham and we have worked on a number of conservation and refurbishment projects involving Listed Buildings across the country.  Historic Buildings require skills and expertise beyond those of a normal architectural service, and over the years, Allan Joyce Architects Ltd have developed the necessary conservation techniques to be an AABC registered practice (Architects Accredited in Building Conservation).  We have completed projects with the aid of the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF), grant funding from Historic England (formerly English Heritage) and most recently Natural England, with funding from their Higher Level Stewardship Scheme.  All these funding bodies require the architect to be AABC registered as part of their criteria.

We work extensively with the National Trust and various PCCs (Parochial Church Councils) throughout the East Midlands where the projects could be of a pure conservation nature or look to extend and adapt an existing Listed Building in a sympathetic or contemporary way.  We prepare Statements of Significance and Heritage Impact Assessments (HIAs) to support the Listed Building Consent applications, to highlight what needs to be protected and what can be changed.  Other services we offer are preparation of Quinquennial Inspections & Reports, measured & condition surveys and Stage 1 & 2 grant applications.

Once the thorough research and reporting is complete, the meticulous preparation of specifications, drawings and sourcing of materials needs to take place.  We have a number of experts we can call upon for more specialist advice and core of conservation craftsmen to turn drawings into reality.
