ALMS HOUSE - A GRADE I LISTED BUILDING IN EAST LONDON

We obtained listed building consent for the removal of mid 20th century alterations to a grade one listed mariner's almshouse and refurbishment of the interior. 


Designed by christopher Wren, and built 1695 the almshouses are arranged in two terraces either side of a communal garden and overlooked by a community chapel. They were badly damaged in the second world war and then repaired and upgraded in the 1950's without respect for their unique history. 


Using the combination of our design drawings skills, CAD experience and hands on restoration expertise we helped the client to obtain the necessary consent and chart a path through the complicated consent process to enable a sensitive upgrade on a tight budget which rescued the neglected but nationally important historic building . 


"I'd highly recommend Ecovril. They were very helpful in explaining he planning process and negotiating listed buildings regulations,and kept me well informed on the application's progress through the local council's antiquated system. 


They went above expectations with advice on budget, building materials and timescales and were invaluable to the whole project."
