Listed building consent

It is imperative that the importance and significance of a listed building, whether it be listed grade I, II* or II is understood by all parties of the design team. This importance is not only architectural significance but is also historic importance which has help shape our society throughout the years.

Before any building work can take place on a listed building like so many in York and Harrogate, listed building consent needs to be grated first. That includes even repairs as well as alterations, extensions and conversions, so it’s an important service to understand.

At CK Architectural, we understand the massive importance of listed building consent as well as all other areas of planning and regulations which may need consideration following consent too. We’ll work with you and in harmony with your property to give your project the best possible chance of success and feasibility.

It is imperative that the importance and significance of a listed building, whether it be listed grade I, II* or II is understood by all parties of the design team. This importance is not only of architectural significance but is also historically important too, which has helped shape our society dramatically throughout the years…

The success of any project which involves a listed building is researching into the history and background of the building. We uncover its former uses over the past centuries whilst also revealing any significance to historic events that we need to know.  Working with you through this process, we will identify the planning issues that may be in place, enabling us to restore and enhance your property to meet modern life’s expectations and requirements and get the listed building consent and any further planning permission too.

Projects/buildings with a listing means there will be extra control during the process over what changes can be made to the building’s interior and exterior. We can provide information to the local and national authorities (such as English Heritage) which will allow the projects to be approved.

In many cases, the main issues with historic buildings are technical issues i.e. damp, deterioration, damage etc. Our technical experience allows us to provide complementary solutions to any such problems.

Working closely with our team / other consultants we can offer a full range of expertise to a project which enables us to deliver designs that work with a listed building but also ensures the economical control and sensitive design solutions have been derived fully incorporating budget, structure, services, Health and Safety etc from the early stages of the project.

Whether your design taste is either paying tribute to the existing building or is sensitive but contrasting/different to the building, we offer a full architectural design package with offers both. This process is from building inception through to completion, covering all RIBA work stages.  This can begin with feasibility and concept design, to planning and building regulations approved drawings with specifications ready for tender/construction.  This is also complemented (if required) by contract administration services which include site inspections and monitoring the build on-site to ensure the contractor is building in compliance to the approved construction drawings, specifications and the building contract.

From basic design to full project management,  you can tailor your service to you

Highly recommend CK Architectural. Chris and his team did a great job gaining planning permission for a new build and renovation of an existing property. We hit some dead ends with the planning officer but Chris found different ways of getting around the problems without going over budget.

For someone far removed from the building / planning industries the thought of where to start when thinking of a big extension project to my house (two story to the side and wrap around of semi-detached 3 bed) was a little daunting at first. Luckily, after obtaining a competitive quote, I enlisted the services of CK Architectural and have been very impressed with not only the service received but the ease at which they have made the whole process. After listening to my thoughts and the reasons for needing the extension work doing, the architect came up with a great design that encompassed everything that was needed. Even when I changed my mind over a couple of aspects, Donna, Chris and the team were quick to administer any alterations. Every visit to the house for measurements / planning etc has happened without a hitch with all members of the team we've encountered being punctual and professional at all times. The best thing has been by far the ease at which CK have made of getting all council and local authority sign off for the project. All I have needed to do is pay the fees at the required time, no stress involved and all went through seamlessly. I'm now at the stage where I have the drawings to hand and have submitted them to builders to obtain quotes. Importantly, the feedback so far from the builders indicates the project to be within the budget specifications I explained to CK during the first consultation. Very happy customer 🙂 Carl.

Excellent Service and prompt!! I have taken CK's service twice. Chris and his team is very helpful and most importantly have enough patience to accommodate my frequently changing mind set. I would happily recommend any one to CK Architectural and wish them all the best.
