What is the listed building?

Listed building is a structure of great historic or aesthetic value.

listed buildings

What buildings are listed?
  • All buildings older than 300 years.
  • Most of buildings between 300 and 175 years old with exception for buildings altered extensively.
  • Any other buildings as long as they are over 30 years old.
What kinds of structures are listed?
  • Any structures and items such as road signs, telephone boxes, sheds, barns, houses, farmhouses, etc. Historic England has got 20 categories of structures. Owners can find guides for each of the section regarding maintenance of such structure. Please find guide for England here
 Categories of listed buildings:
  • Exceptional interest – Grade I.
  • Particular importance – Grade II*.
  • Special interest – most common for listed homes – Grade II.

Owners cannot alter or demolish such structure without a permission from local planning authority so that it stays in same shape for future generations.

The only exemption from above rule is provided for buildings currently in use for worship. Owners are still required to maintain structure and repair under the threat of prosecution.

List of all listed buildings is available to view on “Historic England’s” website under this address:

Ancient Monuments Protection Act 1882

Very limited number of structures still falls under protection of much older legislation called “Ancient Monuments Protection Act 1882”. It was the events of WWII and Nazi Blitz bombings that triggered Royal Institute of British Architects and The Society for Protection of Ancient Buildings to prepare a list of buildings that required to be rebuild. Later, that process transformed into Listed Buildings list as we know it today.

In the meantime, we invite you to have a look at our case studies where you can see great examples of listed building restorations carried out by Restoration Projects! Case Studies >>here<<

Restoration Aspects – refurbishments and conversions

Restoration is a key way of maintaining historical buildings and making them fit for purpose. What if the professional aspects of restoration could be used for other construction projects? Such as refurbishments and conversions and extensions?

Restoration in Action

Creating a new lease of life for old buildings is specialised work if it’s done sensitively. It’s not just about repairing faults and correcting long-term deterioration. Most of all it’s strengthening what’s there and ensuring its continuing survival.

To do this, the materials have to be correct and appropriate for the task. There has been a recent case in Cadiz in Spain where the job of strengthening the tower of Matrera Castle resulted in being crude and inappropriate.

The key to restoration is in proper planning. Involving matching the right materials and sourcing key components.

Project management involves combining traditional craftsmanship with modern building techniques. All this needs to ensure that the finished result is in line with the character of the building.


Applying the Restoration Approach

Property conversions, extensions and refurbishments can indefinitely increase property value on market. The key thing to ask is how a building project can maximise its impact?
Our answer is to look at quality. Using the attention to detail and specialist techniques of restoration result unique effects.

People are recognising that altering property is not simply about adding space or refreshing a look. It can be far more fundamental than this. Property prestige comes from creating a real sense of character.

Finally, a property doesn’t need to be a listed building to deserve the same degree of diligence when it comes to refurbishment. This is the key.

We are combining an artisan business model with economies of scale and, in doing so, realising the aesthetic ambitions of our clients.

If you are a perfectionist and planning your next project, please contact us.

Curtains Close on the First Phase of the The Royal Exchange Theatre Restoration in Manchester

Restoration Projects, have completed phase one of a two phase The Royal Exchange Theatre restoration in Manchester.

The Grade II listed building resides within Manchester’s cultural hub. Therefore it boasts thousands of visitors every year and as such restoration in Manchester was very challenging project.

This listed building has suffered a lot over the years from poor maintenance works. Due to failure of valley gutter  several leaks has caused further damages.

Following water ingress, many sections of the ornate plaster cornice were damaged thus Restoration Projects were tasked to undertake the necessary repairs to the damaged features. With the help of Structural Engineer and The Royal Exchange Theatre Management Team we have managed to complete works to satisfying level.

Works included soffits, cornices and corbels as well as resin flake paint analysis and the formation of new moulds to rejuvenate the damaged area.

The scheme has gained significant acclaim and as a result featured in “Refurb Projects” magazine.
