heritage & conservation

All sites have a story and the appreciation of the history of the canvas we work on is a key driver in the sustainable design approach of epd.

We specialise in assessing any potential impacts of a design on the setting of a heritage asset. We are adept at working with fellow design professionals and statutory consultees to achieve a design solution that augments the history and helps to breathe new life into an asset for the benefit of the whole community. We consider education and interpretation as a key catalyst for our design decisions.

Working on projects encompassing rural to urban heritage assets, we work closely with the wider landscape team to provide a robust framework that responds to local, national and international policies of conservation, education, enhancement and revitalisation.
