I am a conservation architect with over thirty years' experience of making repairs and alterations to listed buildings, including many listed Grade I and Grade II*. I am also an ecclesiastical architect caring for over 40 parish churches in the Ely, St Albans, Chelmsford and Peterborough Dioceses. I am registered with, and also an assessor for, Architects Accredited in Building Conservation (AABC) and I am an RIBA Specialist Conservation Architect (RIBA SCA) and on the committee supervising the RIBA conservation register.
Trinity Hall Cambridge: I was lead consultant for this scheme (illustrated below) to repair and replace the roof coverings of one wing of the college, including replacement of the clay plain tiles, installation of a new flat copper roof and miscellaneous repairs to chimneys and windows.
Barrington Church: I am Inspecting Architect for this Grade I listed church and have carried out numerous repair and reordering projects, including restoration of the 14th century windows, using clunch taken from the nearby quarry, and a new lighting scheme.
Bawdsey Radar, Suffolk: One of several structures that were of great significance in the development of Radar. Built in 1939 it was the first operational Radar station in the world.
I was the lead consultant appointed to write a conservation plan and design the conservation works and improve visitor facilities. The Grade II* listed block had been on the Buildings At Risk register and was featured in the BBC programme 'Restoration'. Repairs to the concrete blast walls were carried out by a specialist and coated with a clear microporous finish to preserve their original aesthetic.
A prefabricated toilet pod in Corten steel was made off-site and lowered into position between two of the blast walls.
Fitzwilliam Museum Cambridge: I was the project architect for this refurbishment of the Dutch Galleries in the University-owned Grade I listed building. Work included substantial roof works to improve energy efficiency and the installation of new ventilation systems to improve the environment inside the galleries for the artworks, visitors and staff.
