Heritage services


A specialist claims service that has been crafted through years of experience in handling claims for churches, historic properties, and listed buildings.

We are particularly proud of our heritage claims service. We have a long association with one of the largest insurers in this market, to whom we have provided claims services for over 20 years. 

Our team has a wealth of experience in successfully navigating the considerations around heritage properties. We are accustomed to working collaboratively with interested parties to plan, agree, and oversee repair works. We appreciate and respect the influencing factors and dynamics surrounding heritage properties, their importance to local communities, funding considerations and the involvement of volunteers.

Our heritage claims service also includes access to our managed contractor network, Quadrassist. Our careful selection and rigorous vetting of contractors, surveyors and other suppliers reflect the nature of work we specialise in and the value we place on caring for heritage properties.
