About Us

We believe in the power of adaptive, creative thinking; in the idea that most things are possible; and in the fundamental proposition that the pursuit of excellence in design and workmanship will always be worthwhile.  We bring these ideas to the business of finding new, sustainable uses for historic buildings and sites.

Preferring to channel our energies in a focussed way to deliver the best possible development outcome, we consciously limit the number of projects we handle at any one time.

Together, the management team has more than sixty years of accumulated business experience, in all aspects of property.
