Assessments and Statements of Significance

Granta Heritage provides Assessment of Significance for buildings, their contents and setting. Assessments describe the building as a whole and summarise what each element contributes to the character of the building, especially those areas where change is proposed.

This information assists clients to assist decision-makers and advisory bodies in understanding the impact of proposed changes.

However old your building is, we can help to assess the following:

  • The architectural and historic interest of the building
  • The aesthetic qualities and interest of its design and character
  • Its archaeological interest
  • The materials used to build it
  • Identify the age, rarity and quality of internal furnishings and fittings
  • The building’s footprint, including its external composition and internal plan form
  • Its spatial qualities and decorative schemes
