Project Management | Milford Cottage

Sillence Hurn was engaged by the client to provide Project Management and Heritage Consultancy services, managing specified works of a Grade II listed cottage in the New Forest.




Project Management/Cost Planning


Milford-on-Sea, Lymington


The client instructed Sillence Hurn to carry out a building survey prior to purchase, we assisted in drawing up a programme of works, submitting and gaining listed building consent for the works, improving energy efficiency and contractor selection and management.

To fully understand the scope of works, our team met with the client to establish a thorough brief for the scheme and level of refurbishment.

Our surveyors were to advise on and monitor compliance of specified works, in accordance with planning and building regulation approvals.


Project Outcomes: 

Where this cottage is a Grade II listed building, our team was sensitive to design restrictions and structural complications, adhering to specific requirements laid out by the client.

Our surveyors provided a detailed delivery programme, engaging with third parties on behalf of the client, and prepared tender reports in addition to carrying out a full measured survey of the property to enable production of existing floorplans and elevations.

The client commented; "We were delighted to use the services of Sillence Hurn . Their expertise in fully understanding the Planning requirements for a Grade 2 listed property were invaluable . Likewise, their on-going dialogue with the Planning Authorities was critical in reaching an agreement on the scope of work".
