Special Projects

Complex heritage restoration and signature new build projects call for a different degree of care.

Expertise and passion combined.

Complex heritage restoration and signature new build projects call for a different degree of care. They often require targeted and highly bespoke solutions. Our Special Projects team is dedicated to providing those schemes with the technical excellence and expertise they need.

Combining traditional, established skills with a contemporary approach to design, we work in partnership with our clients, designers and architects. This is to ensure that the end result is beautiful in every detail, reflecting the best of both old and new designs, techniques and finishes. Also at our disposal, is the wide range of technical knowledge and engineering skills available across Sir Robert McAlpine and a network of some of the finest artisans and specialist craftsman operating in our profession.

We undertake bespoke and highly technical schemes. Many of our clients view themselves as custodians of these properties. Work often needs to be carried out in either occupied spaces or complex locations, ensuring minimal disruption to ongoing operations and the surroundings.  The experience of our people draws together conservation, signature new build, refurbishment, highly technical building services, and complex engineering.  To complement this expertise, we also rely on our knowledge of stakeholder and community management for some of the nation’s finest residences and landmark buildings.

We are leaders in BIM level 2 for heritage projects and can provide holistic expertise. This encompasses design, pre-construction, the management of temporary and the management of conservation works, fine bespoke finishing and sustainability solutions. It also supports the handover and aftercare of the buildings.

As a stand-out service in the industry, our Special Projects team of passionate experts offers you the luxury of a managed, considered and competent approach.
