List of Reports and Services


The work of Helen Wilson Heritage Conservation Design covers reports and services on a wide range of types and eras of historic buildings and sites, including residential, commerical and industrial properties, both private and public. The work is both large and small scale and includes heritage impact statements, conservation management plans and strategies, interpretation plans, archival recordings, and schedules of conservation works. Some very small projects have been undertaken that make a big difference, such as colour schemes and conservation and reconstruction works to house frontages.
