Niche Historic can provide:

HISTORICAL RESEARCH AND ANALYSIS

Niche Historic can advise on the age and history of a building, a room, or simply an architectural detail. Some buildings may require the advice of specialists to give very accurate results. Much of this is forensic including wallpaper or paint analysis. Niche Historic can advise and recommend the most appropriate specialists for any job.

CONSERVATION STATEMENTS AND STATEMENTS OF SIGNIFICANCE

Using Planning Policy Statement 5: Planning for the Historic Environment (issued by the Government in March 2010), Niche Historic can produce conservation statements for any type of building that is seen as a heritage asset as well as statements of significance for buildings that are viewed as archaeologically, architecturally, artistically or historically significant.

MEASURED DRAWINGS

Niche Historic can survey the existing site and supply measured drawings and plans on any scale. We can work with our sister company Niche Interior Design and with established architects to provide proposed detail drawings and visuals for planning and conservation applications and listed building consent.

DESIGN AND RESTORATION

Niche Historic can advise on the restoration of historic buildings of all types and periods. We can also advise on the most appropriate materials and architectural details and source suitable architectural salvage items, which are historically accurate and authentic.

Together with Niche Interior Design we can create unique design solutions that are sensitive to the historical nature of the building and understand the parameters within which new designs must work. We also enjoy the challenge of marrying old and new so that these buildings can continue to be enjoyed with the comforts of contemporary living.
