Architects Framework: 2015 - current
In 2015, Buttress was appointed by English Heritage to its quantity surveying and architects framework to undertake conservation and design work to properties across the North of England, London and the East Midlands.
Asset Management Programme: 2012 - 2015
Buttress was reappointed to the EH Asset Management Programme framework and assisted in piloting a development of the original Asset Management survey approach. We undertook a number of surveys to English Heritage properties across the country under this framework, including 28 individual surveys across Hadrian's Wall, Belsay Hall, Castle and Gardens in Northumberland and Plymouth Citadel.
Asset Management Programme: 2007-2011 with a one year extension to 2012
During this period, we were appointed to a framework agreement for conservation architects delivering condition surveys to English Heritage properties in the north, north west, west and east midlands regions of England. This followed a long standing relationship with the organisation and commissions under previous term agreements for conservation architecture services. Under this framework, we undertook over fifty condition surveys on English Heritage properties including Kenilworh Castle in Warwickshire, Beeston Castle in Cheshire, St Mary's Studeley Royal and Ironbridge in Shropshire.
Framework for conservation architecture for Yorkshire and North East England, and framework for major projects: 2002-2006
Within this framework we undertook a number of individual projects for English Heritage including individual condition surveys, packages of conservation repairs and new design development. Individual projects undertaken under the frameworks included:
• Helmsley Castle Visitor Centre and access improvements
• Thornton Abbey Gatehouse restoration, access improvements and new visitor facilities
• St. Peter’s Barton on Humber conservation works, ossuary and new exhibition areas
• Mount Grace Priory internal restoration and new visitor facilities
• Byland Abbey Museum development and stonework investigation
• Rievaulx Abbey extended visitor centre
