Architects Worcestershire

Planning permission granted in Worcestershire, KODA architects are proud to report. The worked include extensive repair of a 16th Century timber framed cottage as well as a significant open plan extension to the rear of the property. 

The property was built in the 16th Century, around the time of the Tudors. At this time, most of the properties in the country were formed of timber framed houses, often with a number of families living together. The small two and two down property has undergone some significant alterations in its life with much of the roof being replaced. However, with the original carpenters still evident on the frame, the building has an excellent storey to tell. Being grade II listed, the building has been at the forefront of village life since being built. The site occupies a key location within the village and conservation area.

Over the period of 400 years, the original timber frame has been altered and following an inspection by conservation architect, Fred Hamer, it was found that the sole plate to the timber frame had been cut in a number of places to allow for new door ways or just where it has rotted away. As a result, the timber frame was displaying signed of movement and KODA architects repairs include reinstatement of the missing frame and new works to prevent this structural monvement progressing. 

The works are currently progressing through the technical drawing stages where the final elements are being detailed. KODA architects are working closely with other consultants such as structural engineers and contractors to help realise the clients brief.  

Having listed building consent and planning permission granted in Worcestershire is excellent and KODA architects have worked very closely with our client. The next step is to discharge any planning conditions and progress through tendering and onto onsite works.
