About the Project

We were called in during the winter of 2018 in order to inspect and report on a collapsed cob barn that formed part of a Grade II Listed farm complex in East Devon.

Following our initial inspection we were instructed to provide a detailed specification and schedule of works for the repair and rebuild works, which included a sympathetic repair using cob blocks and traditional techniques such as lime plastering. The repair specification was discussed with the Conservation Officer and a Listed Building Application was submitted.

The project was tendered to specialist contractors, and we were on hand throughout to carry out site inspections and oversee the works on behalf of the client, who was extremely pleased with the end result.
