Refurbishment of existing extension

Architects Hibbs & Walsh Associates have worked on the many Listed Buildings throughout Essex, Hertfordshire and Suffolk. The area is rich with timber framed and thatched cottages. This cottage had to have much of its sole plate replaced and the existing extension restored. Listed Building Consent is required for practically any alterations to a Listed Building including the replacement of sole plates and the restoration of historic timber frames. Hibbs & Walsh are familiar with the many traditional construction techniques and materials which are essential for the preservation of historical buildings. Hibbs & Walsh Associates feel strongly that the architect has a ‘responsibility to a building’ and will always try to work closely with the Listed Building Officer to achieve the best desired – and permitted – results.
