The report was extremely detailed and well set out with excellent photographs, which is very helpful for someone who is not an expert in the subject. The survey was conducted in a very professional and friendly way and Matt has been very generous with his time in talking it through and identifying priorities. The report is really helpful in allowing me to plan repairs. I would have no hesitation in recommending Hutton + Rostron to anyone looking for a similar survey.

Historic Building Specialists

At H+R, we understand the delicate balance between preserving the historic integrity of a building and finding an economical and practical solution to managing the cause of its deterioration. Our listed building surveys provide detailed information and recommendations, while our building scientists can offer sustainable solutions that eschew damaging interventions or chemical treatments.

The focus of our work is to preserve the original building materials and methods of construction, particularly where these are of architectural or historical significance. Wherever possible, we use non-destructive methods to investigate a problem, from piloting drones to employing our trained Rothounds. In cases where the intrusion is unavoidable, we take care to use minimally invasive techniques to limit the damage.

Diverse Team Expertise

Our team members come from a variety of disciplines and have a wide range of skill sets that include special interests in traditional materials, timber identification and strength grading, damp management, heritage and listed property, fungus and insect classification and conservation methods and material science, to name a few.

Our staff are conservation accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and are members of the Institute of Historic Building Conservation (IHBC).

To support the in-house expertise of the H+R team, we frequently work with a wider network of specialists, academics and laboratories to provide every client with the most accurate and thorough property report. In the long term, our work makes remedial work easier and keeps client costs down by helping them to avoid unnecessary or ineffective solutions.

Varied Client Base

We have worked on a diverse range of properties across the country, including national landmark buildings such as the Tower of London, Windsor Castle and Brighton Pavilion, as well as churches and stately homes, terraced houses and barns, ancient monuments and standing ruins.

Among our varied client base are a large number of heritage organisations including The National Trust, English Heritage, Cadw, Historic Environment Scotland, as well as The Royal Household, Crown Estate, Church Commissioners, Natural England and central and local government bodies.

In addition to providing a range of services to the heritage sector, we regularly advise private householders and property owners as well as the commercial property sector on both historic and contemporary buildings.
