Stephen McConnell from the firm introduces them:
“Knox McConnell Architects are historic buildings consultants and conservation architects based in the world heritage site of Saltaire in West Yorkshire. We believe that old buildings should be used and enjoyed. Preserving our heritage and adapting it for the future is important to us. Old buildings give people pleasure, connecting us to our history, events, and memories. We like to integrate and promote heritage skills and training opportunities into our projects, trying to engage young people in developing an interest in the heritage industry.
We really enjoy suggesting new uses for forgotten spaces to help invigorate buildings and the communities that use them.
We provide full architectural and historic building services for heritage projects and can put together a team of building professionals tailored to meet specific needs. Our services include;
• Feasibility Studies and Options Appraisals
• Building Conservation and Repairs
• Alterations and Extensions
• Interior Design
• Design of Furniture and Fittings
• Historic Building Analysis and Reports
• Condition Surveys and Quinquennial Inspections
• Conservation Plans and Heritage Impact Assessments
• Tendering, Specifications & Schedules of Work

We are currently halfway through a two-year project carrying out major repairs at the grade 1 listed Towneley Hall in Burnley.

We are delighted to join the Heritage Trust Network to learn more about what other people are doing to preserve our heritage.”
