Throughout his career, Eugene Raeside has been involved with older buildings in relation to refurbishment, conservation, extending and remodelling. Old buildings really do require special consideration and expertise as today's modern materials and methods of building are usually totally unsuitable. These buildings were built in a way that most design professionals and builders have little knowledge of and, as such, it is often the case that repairs, improvements and additions carried out today can have a serious detrimental effect on the longevity and functioning of the building in the long term.
With R.I.A.I. accreditation in conservation at Grade 3 level, we can advise and follow through with architectural services for projects involving old buildings. Please click on images on this page to see some examples of projects involving older buildings where we were involved from initial consultation to the finished project.
