Listed Building Success!


Architecture Listed Building



We recently obtained Listed Building & Planning Consent for replacement double glazed windows and doors to a Grade II Listed farmhouse near Liverpool.

Pre-application discussions with the Conservation Officer, prior to our involvement, were not positive. The existing farmhouse is cold. Thermally improved windows are the simplest way of providing a more comfortable home.

Ecosash recommended us to see if there was a way of achieving double glazing and the associated consents.

After a detailed assessment, it was clear that the existing fenestration had little architectural merit. New configurations constructed from painted timber & cast bronze were proposed which respected both the buildings age & evolution but crucially incorporating double glazing.

A positive pre-application consultation raised no concerns over the designs or double glazing!

Following the formal process, Planning & Listed Building consents were granted without a hitch. Our delighted client is now gearing up to start a programme of replacements.

Through a careful & pragmatic assessment of the building, listening to the concerns of all parties and intelligent design solutions, the process of dealing with Conservation Officers need not be daunting.
