CONSURV have long term experience as one of Ireland’s leading Conservation Practices. We specialise in non-destructive investigative techniques in the interest of preserving the historic fabric of our building stock. We have vast experience working with and understanding historic structures. The Conservation Principles applied by CONSURV have proven invaluable to many historic projects such as Farmleigh House, Castle Leslie, Castle Hyde, Cork Court House, Medieval Walls and Towers of Waterford City, Sligo Court House and indeed many smaller projects such as thatched cottages and terraced houses.

We offer a broad range of services including fabric analysis and documentary research to the execution of condition surveys, architectural services, independent expert advice relating to corrective action for building decay and detailed specifications for carrying out specialist conservation work on site. A full Project Management Service from inception to completion of projects is offered. Planning and Development AdviceWe are able to assist clients through the planning process based upon our range of skills and experience. Using a Conservation Plan approach to establish an understanding of a designated site, it is possible to show that new development and conservation need not be mutually exclusive and that sympathetic solutions exist for sensitive sites. Heritage Appraisal and AssessmentIn assessing a site or building, we look to understand its significance across a number of headings and in the context of relevant statutory designations (protected structures or monuments). We examine the Archaeological, Art-Historical, Historical and Cultural values associated with the location. We then recommend Conservation Strategies to protect and mitigate impact based upon a thorough understanding and analysis of the site as a whole.
