PBWC’s longstanding experience in building conservation includes the RIBA Design Award winning refurbishment and conversion of its own office, in the heart of the St Ives Conservation Area, in 1989.

PBWC’s conservation services are tailored to match the needs of each project and include the repair, alteration and reuse of historic and listed buildings in both the public and private sectors.

In major conservation projects the design and specification process will be preceded and guided by analysis of the historic building or structure and its setting.

This may result in the preparation of a Conservation Plan involving extensive research to arrive at an understanding of the asset, an assessment of its significance, definition of the principal issues, preparation of conservation policies and strategies to implement and review them.

The practice’s conservation expertise was strengthened in 2003 to include architect Paul Perry, who holds a Post Graduate Diploma in Building Conservation from the Architectural Association. He is included in the highest category of the RIBA Conservation Register, Specialist Conservation Architect and is also included in the Register of Architects Accredited in Building Conservation.

Specialist Conservation Architect (SCA). Suitable for those working on historic buildings of outstanding national importance, such as Grade I and II* listed buildings or scheduled monuments, and with highly specialist skills in one or more aspects of conservation.

(The Commissioners of English Heritage declared that from April 2003 control by an accredited professional is a requirement of grants being awarded for repairs to historic buildings).
