Ablett Architects has an established record of working on repair and conservation works in Dartford for historic buildings of differing periods, many being listed. We have AABC accreditation.
We analyse the defects and the decay mechanisms to understand the reasons for decay and commission specialist reports as necessary. We also seek to understand the importance of the various parts of the structure. After that, we prepare proposals for repair, adopting a minimal intervention ‘like for like’ repair approach, overseeing contractors and specialists through to completion.
We are passionate about historic buildings. We seek to understand the phases of change and evolution, the intricacies of the building, the decay mechanisms, and the repair and conservation challenges, and working closely with client representatives to develop a longer-term vision.
A conservation architect is a professional who specializes in the preservation, repair and restoration of historic buildings or structures.
They have knowledge and skills in the areas of architecture, history, and preservation techniques, and work closely with historians, preservationists, and other professionals to protect and maintain important cultural sites.
The main objective of a conservation architect is to ensure the longevity of the building or structure while retaining its historical and cultural significance for future generations.
At Ablett we make the whole design process very simple
