A building recording may need to be undertaken if a structure, considered of archaeological or historical importance is to be demolished, altered or promoted as an attraction. This may for example, include a photographic record or elevation drawings along with detailed descriptions of the building’s fabric and chronological phasing.
We have considerable expertise in this field, with particular interests in medieval ecclesiastical and defensible buildings, along with domestic vernacular architecture and historic farm buildings. Since 2003, nationally renowned historic buildings expert, Peter Ryder, has worked as an associate of the Archaeological Practice, contributing to over 200 building recording reports with us, many equivalent to Historic England Level 3.
