Conservation Philosophy

John McAslan + Partners' award-winning conservation team prides itself on offering an understanding of the significance and value of historic buildings and sites combined with an informed perception of their potential for change.

Our philosophy is to use our knowledge, experience and specialist skills to unlock the value of historic fabric.  Intellectual rigour, a strategic understanding and an all-embracing approach ensure that a building's special characteristics are retained and enhanced while future requirements, which many entail extensive interventions, are carefully and sensitively considered and developed.

Guided by the tenets of conservation best practice our input will range from strategic advice on statutory requirements to meticulous analysis of historic materials and finishes.  Our expertise, practical approach and ability to work with a variety of stakeholders, from international bodies to local groups equips us to work on projects that range from the refurbishment of the worlf-famous Burrell Collection in Glasgow and the redevelopment of the Grade I listed King's Cross Station and its environs to the conservation of a Modernist jewel such as the De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill-on-Sea and the careful dismantling and transplanting of a historic house in the Arabian Gulf.

Working with a variety of designers, we create strikingly innovative architecture, ensuring vibrant and sustainable continuity for our historic inheritance.
