Our experience has taught us that the foundation of any good heritage project is a thorough understanding of the building you are working with. For church buildings the key to unlocking that understanding is a document called a statement of significance. This statement is a tool for exploring the history of the building, assessing the importance of its features, and evaluating the impact of your proposals on that importance. It will guide your architect in their design work, help you make a case to funders, and is essential for decision makers when it comes to gaining permission for your project.
We have the skills and experience to provide high quality, comprehensive statements of significance for church buildings of all periods and complexities.
We can also produce addenda to existing statements of significance where more information has been requested by the DAC or statutory consultees, for example examining the history of flooring or seating in more detail.
