TDR Heritage are well qualified in history, archaeology and building
conservation and have over 30 years of experience as practitioners in the
heritage sector in a variety of roles. Our expertise covers the conservation and management of both the urban and rural historic environment,
and we have worked extensively in both the private and public sector.
Our experience in heritage management in the public sector includes time working on a wide range of activities - from Historic Environment Record (HER) enhancement projects, aerial photographic interpretation and Conservation Area Appraisals to Extensive Urban Survey, the development and delivery of heritage aspects of agri-environment schemes, and being at the
‘coal-face’ in development control, providing archaeological and building conservation expertise
and advising on the implications of development on the full range of heritage
assets - historic buildings, archaeology and landscapes.
In both private practice and the
public sector, TDR Heritage have substantial experience of working on the investigation
and interpretation of the significance and conservation of archaeological
sites, buildings, historic towns and townscapes, alongside the development of
schemes for new uses in historic buildings, advising on condition, maintenance
and management, the eligibility of projects, risk management and the coordination
and negotiation of appropriate reuse, repairs and alterations. Our extensive background allows us to make deliverable and realistic Conservation Management Plans and we also undertake project management.
Our principal consultant, Victoria Hunns, is a full member of the Institute for Historic Building Conservation (IHBC) and the Chartered Institute for Archaeologists (CIfA), and served on the CIfA Council for 6 years.
TDR Heritage is also a recognised Historic Environment Service Provider '
(HESPR)' by the IHBC, which means that we are a quality-assured body that works to the conservation standards of the IHBC.
