One of Irons Foulner’s principal specialisms is work with historic buildings. Commissions involving buildings of historical significance have included conservation projects in the strictest sense (where the building is to be preserved as found) and projects to incorporate modern facilities within or extensions to historic buildings, while preserving the significant features of the historic fabric and integrating modern engineering services sensitively. Many of our projects have received prestigious conservation awards.
Whether it is conservation, refurbishment or conversion, Irons Foulner understand the special problems posed by historic buildings, and we have the expertise to address these within the guiding principles of conservation ethics, allowing the nature of the building to determine the engineering solutions whenever possible and producing designs that minimize intervention, are reversible and do not interfere with the enjoyment of the historic building.
