Heritage Consultancy at Buttress is a positive and forward-thinking service that helps clients identify how the past can inform the future.
We work with internal and external clients, and together with them identify how our in-depth understanding of heritage, significance, and place can help unlock the potential of projects.
Our services are offered to the most modest heritage asset and the most complex World Heritage Site alike. To each, we bring the same enthusiasm, creativity and knowledge.
We bring a balanced offer that has positive outcomes for you, your project, the asset, and the wider place.
Buttress Heritage Consultancy
Buttress’ approach to Heritage Consultancy is about providing you with information that helps you do your job. Plain and simple. Our skilled and experienced team bring authority and enjoyment to the process which will be done with you, collaboratively.
Through positive conversations we provide information, consult with stakeholders, and engage authorities and communities to support clients and design teams at key stages of development.
You can be confident that our reports will be accurate, and insightful and reference all the right policies and standards. Much more than an end in themselves though, our outputs are evidence of the process we have gone through with you; that is where the value of heritage consultancy lies.
What might I need to support my project?
