We help our clients make informed decisions about their historic buildings and sites, enabling them as the custodians who connect heritage with the future. We provide professional advice and a comprehensive range of technical services related to historic and culturally significant buildings, their settings and archaeology.
Collaborating with clients in both the public and private sectors, our work ranges from large scale redevelopment projects such as the transformation of Canada’s parliament building Centre Block, to smaller projects such as evaluating the climate risks to historic Antarctic monuments.
Our locally dedicated teams draw on international expertise to deliver complex projects using both traditional building methods and highly technical solutions. Working closely with our clients and other stakeholders, we develop innovative solutions that will safeguard our historic places, while also ensuring their future viability.
Reusing historic buildings
Retrofitting our existing building stock is integral to creating a more sustainable built environment. Reusing historic buildings comes with added challenges – balancing the heritage significance of the building with the need to adapt them to suit user requirements and meet net zero sustainability targets.
Our design solutions aim to give these buildings a new lease of life, sensitively incorporating digital and sustainable technologies, while retaining the unique characteristics that make them so special.
From feasibility studies and planning applications to building systems upgrades and structural engineering, we help our clients to realise their ambitions: revitalising older buildings to meet their needs for today and for tomorrow.
