For many years we have undertaken projects for the National Trust including tunnels, lime kilns and bridges on the Calke Abbey Estate, together with remediation of historic houses at Keddleston Hall and Clumber Park.
Working alongside architects and National Trust surveyors, we have built a reputation for innovative structural solutions which assist in preserving our national heritage.
Other work carried out by Kingfisher Consulting includes church and mosque extensions and rehabilitation projects, together with sympathetic restoration of farmhouses, barns and industrial buildings in National Parks and conservation areas.
We were responsible for the design of the Cae Du Caravan Park facilities and administration building in Beddgelert in the Snowdonia National Park which is now recognised as an outstanding example of how to empathise with the local vernacular architecture and surroundings in an area of outstanding natural beauty.
Our ecclesiastical work includes a large extension to St. Matthews church in Hayfield, High Peak, the location of the recent BBC television drama “The Village”, and an important conservation area within the Peak District National Park.
