Tilley and Barret have a long successful history working on historical and listed buildings. From the Old War Office, the V&A Museum, to The Ritz Hotel, we are trusted to work with the building, understanding their heritage and importance.

When working on historical or listed buildings, we start by understanding its history, how it was built, and its significance, both structural and culturally. By gaining a deep understanding of the building, we can then put in place plans and programmes to work with it, and around it. Ensuring any deconstruction or alterations are performed as delicately and precisely as possible. We have successfully altered numerous listed buildings, and we are frequently asked to retain facades of importance. We also know that not everything can remain in place during the works, and we have in place a tried and tested system for cataloguing any materials or furnishing, and then placing them in specialist storage so that on completion of the project, they can be returned to their rightful place.

We work closely with Historic England and other governing bodies to ensure that all our work is performed to the highest standards, safeguarding listed and historical building so that they can be enjoyed by future generations for years to come.
