Historic England has commissioned Harlow Consulting to conduct a survey into the supply and demand of heritage building skills, to help identify skills gaps and shortages.

Construction companies that work on older buildings are invited to participate in the survey, which will be conducted this month and next.

Harlow Consulting director Jennifer Brennan explained: “This work will map the profile of the workforce and relevant training provision, identify skills gaps and shortages, and make recommendations about how best to preserve and protect our heritage building skills.”

Tess Gale, sector resilience and skills director at Historic England, added: “The skills needed to maintain, repair, adapt and retrofit England’s traditional buildings are specialist. This research project will help Historic England, and partners in the sector, to better understand where skills needs are most pressing, enabling effective and collaborative action to address these.”

NuGen Properties built an extension to the rear of my property, replacing the old conservatory. I am so pleased I chose this company. From the initial quotation, through the build and after they were professional, polite & well mannered. They kept the site tidy throughout the build and kept me informed of each stage as it happened. The work was finished to a good standard and I have had nothing but compliments on their work. I am already planning for them to come back and do some more work for me in a few months. I would 100% recommend them.
