Preserving and maintaining our built heritage requires a level of expert knowledge, skill and care which results from experience and dedication. Inappropriate methods of repair and lack of understanding of the behaviour of materials are common causes of defects in historic buildings, and may lead to damage or the loss of important historic elements.

Watts provides specialist conservation advice to a wide range of clients who are responsible for the practical care of historic buildings including central government, local authorities, independent schools, theatres, hotels and property investors and managers.

Watts can deliver the complete spectrum of historic building services including historic building surveys, quadrennial and quinquennial inspections and reports, planned maintenance, post-fire damage reconstruction, restoration of historic facades, planning and Listed Building Consent applications, specialist project management and contract administration services, defect analysis, archival research and above ground archaeology.

Watts’ building conservation team has a full understanding of the need for sympathetic repair with minimal intervention to the building fabric to prevent deterioration and prolong the life of our cultural and natural heritage both in the UK and in continental Europe.
