Preserving the past by designing for the future

We have over 30 years’ experience in the repair and conservation of historic buildings. Our clients include Building Preservation Trusts, universities, churches and private owners. We have worked on many fine historic buildings, from university colleges and Georgian houses, to listed churches and war memorials.

Our conservation team is headed by Rob Harrington and comprises two AABC* accredited conservation architects, and one RIBA** conservation architect.

“BTP understood our vision from the very first brief. The team has extensive previous experience, which instilled a level of confidence that the restoration of Swarthmoor Hall would be treated sensitively. We are most impressed with the final result.”
