Heritage Team Goes from Strength to Strength

Heritage Team Goes from Strength to Strength

A real success story is our venture into offering a full range of heritage consultancy services to the property market.

Over the past two years, we have won prestigious new projects working on historic assets and have built a team of experts to deliver the workstreams.

In 2019, we identified an opportunity to expand our services into specialist heritage consultancy.

We appointed Senior Conservation Architect Helen Walker in a strategic move to cement their position in the market.  The team has been bolstered by the recruitment of Joanne Harrison, Architect & Heritage Consultant and Robert Sharples, Architect, who joins Colin Briggs on the RIBA Conservation Registry.

Bowman Riley is currently working on landmark buildings comprising the redevelopment of the impressive Grade I Bootham Park site in York for Enterprise Retirement Living and the refurbishment of the iconic Grade II* George Hotel and the Grade II Estates Buildings in Huddersfield for Kirklees Council.

These significant projects are alongside the inspection, surveying, refurbishment, restoration, repair and repurposing of listed churches, pubs, banks, mills, and a whole range of buildings within conservation areas.

In recognition of her achievements, we promoted Helen Walker to Head of Heritage.  This role will empower Helen to lead the team into further success as the workload increases in the months and years ahead.

Helen Walker commented:

“I’m proud of our team’s achievements in really establishing Bowman Riley as a leading provider of specialist heritage consultancy. A big thank you to everyone at Bowman Riley from senior management to the business support team for their continued support in the development of our heritage services”.

Michael Feather, Managing Director, said:

“It has been a positive move to establish conservation architecture and heritage consultancy as core services to enhance what we can offer to our clients.  I am excited to see what the coming months and years bring.”
