Practice & People
Working with historic buildings requires a specific set of skills and rigorous attention to detail. With over 40 years’ experience across a broad spectrum of projects between our senior partners, Chedburn Design and Conservation offers a serious alternative to the larger practices in this field.
Operating throughout the southern part of the UK, we are committed to the principle of hands-on project management, and our personal experience and expertise is brought to bear across the entire portfolio.
Alongside the senior partners, George Chedburn and Angela Dudley, the company employs a small and enthusiastic team to provide technical and support services. Our modern offices just outside Bath have full studio facilities equipped with CAD and integrated office management systems.
Our specialist skill set, combined with the accessibility and commitment of a relatively small company, has attracted a diverse range of clients – see projects for examples.
George has established a reputation for his capabilities with both historic buildings and new-build designs in sensitive sites and conservation areas.
He qualified as an architect at Newcastle upon Tyne with a first class honours degree. He has additional qualifications in Building Conservation from the Architectural Association and is a member of RIBA.
George is a panel member of the Bath and Wells Board of the Diocesan Advisory Committee; he also acts as Consultant Conservation Officer to a Welsh local authority.
He founded Chedburn Design and Conservation in 1996.
Angela joined Chedburn Design and Conservation in the year of its launch. Her architectural training was undertaken at Cheltenham College of Art and Plymouth Polytechnic, followed by a diploma in Architectural Conservation at Heriot Watt University in Edinburgh. Prior to joining George, Angela worked in the buildings department of a large estate management company, and with a specialist conservation practice.
Angela provides the critical management impetus that links on-site works with the backroom services provided from the office.
She is a member of IHBC and is Grants Secretary of the “Friends of Somerset Churches and Chapels”, as well as being a committee member of the Trust.
