We are pleased to have recently been appointed to the latest English Heritage Framework, continuing our longstanding relationship with the organisation as it goes through a period of significant change. The framework will ensure that the collection of properties for which English Heritage is responsible are conserved with the appropriate professional skills. This will be the twelfth year that Buttress have been appointed via framework to English Heritage, and we look forward to being a part of future projects.
Until 2019, Buttress will be party to two lots: the North Territory (Northumberland, Cumbria, Cheshire and Yorkshire), as well as the East and London Territory (London, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire amongst others).
2015 marks a significant change in the structuring of English Heritage: from 1st April, the organisation will split in to two separate parts. A new charity set up under the existing English Heritage name will manage the 420 heritage sites and monuments, their collections and archives; and the remaining current English Heritage services, including expert planning, conservation services and advice, will operate under the new name of Historic England. We look forward to working with the organisation as it continues to care for and protect our built heritage.
