Helping to keep the historical context of social architecture alive
Janice Gooch MSc CHE AssocRICS IHBC ACIfA.
At Janice Gooch Heritage Consultancy, we focus on historic building. We work with other consultants, planners, architects and home owners to ensure that a full understanding of the building or heritage asset is known. This enables us to recognise what is and is not significant. By understanding this, and your requirements, we look for the best solution.
