When an existing oak frame needs to be repaired, we offer a survey and drawing service to meet these needs and satisfy listed building requirements.
A barn conversion is a typical example where we would initially visit the property to assess the condition of the existing timber frame on site. As a result of this inspection a repair schedule would be created which includes a detailed drawing of the frame elevations. The repair schedule is laid out in a logical manner, making it easy to understand and ensures that both the Conservation Officer and Client can see exactly which timbers need to be repaired or replaced.
At times, works to historic buildings will occasionally require a historic building report to highlight the important architectural and historic elements of the structure, including its development and previous alterations. We have experience at producing historic building reports with our specialist focus on the timber framed element of the building.
“ I have used Anthony Hicks three times now on projects and I have recommended them to several friends who have also used their services. There are many people professing to build this type of structure and the magazines are littered with such adverts. However none of them in my opinion match the design and finish that Anthony Hicks can provide. I definitely think they use more timber and bigger sizes in the construction. The last building was almost entirely constructed without any metal fittings on the frame as it would have been hundreds of years ago . I am now looking for a site for a new build and I will be speaking to Anthony Hicks in the future” Mr & Mrs Andrews
