There are over half a million listed buildings in Britain. Conservation areas are found in every borough, with a large proportion of our housing stock pre-dating 1914. It is a sector which provides an enormous business opportunity for architects. Working on Historic and Listed Buildings helps all architects - whether conservation specialists or not - to make the most of that business opportunity.

Exploring the essential differences in approach when working on historic buildings compared to normal projects, it explains how to negotiate both the legislation protecting historic buildings and the practicalities of running a project.

Chapters explain all the designated types of protection and guide the reader through making a successful application for consent, while practical project-related matters range from reconciling both building regs and sustainability with conservation needs, to the intricacies of fees and cost control, H&S, and contractor selection.

Aimed especially at the mainstream of architects who do not consider themselves specialists in conservation work, this guide will allow readers to grasp the challenge of the re-use and refurbishment of our historic building stock. Includes an appendix explaining the RIBA's new Conservation Architect Accreditation system.
