Historic Buildings Consultancy

Our dedicated consultancy service provides strategic advice on development in the historic environment.

Donald Insall Associates offers a dedicated Historic Buildings Consultancy to advise clients on development in the historic environment. The team provides creative and practical historic buildings advice, based on thorough research and analysis.

The team comprises architects, designers, historians, former conservation officers and Historic England inspectors. We discover what is special about a building or place, identify opportunities for improvements, guide interventions, and provide advice throughout the planning process. We contribute to masterplans, strategic analysis and feasibility studies, provide reports for listed building consent and planning applications, undertake conservation plans, and generally support clients who seek to revitalise historic places and require historic buildings advice.

The Consultancy’s expertise is trusted by a diverse range of clients, including The Crown Estate, The Grosvenor Estate, The Cadogan Estate, The Royal Opera House, the Museum of London, the University of Oxford colleges, NHS trusts, major retailers and developers, and individual owners of listed buildings.
