refurbishment and regeneration

hmh architects have significant experience of refurbishment and regeneration projects. We have built up a breadth of knowledge and expertise working on a range of projects, from large-scale master planning of mixed-use developments, refurbishment and conversion of existing, historical and listed buildings.
With our in-house Passivhaus and energy assessor skills and accreditations, we are able to adapt the new build criteria to suit existing buildings and provide solutions for reducing carbon emissions.
hmh architects can help Clients with large property portfolios to maintain, manage and plan maintenance work, with space, access and energy audits, to assess the long-term fitness for purpose and use of the building for decades to come.
We have the experience needed to enable us to assess more accurately the scope of work required at an early stage which informs a better cost estimate and viability options for a proposal.



Building Information Modelling (BIM) is the process of creating and managing both 3D (model, drawings) and 2D information (schedules, specifications) throughout the buildings lifecycle. A key output of the process is the Building Information Model, co-ordinated with the client, design team, contractor and end user, to create a 3D representation of all aspects of the building.

This collaborative BIM approach aims to reduce risk, conflicts and changes during design and construction, saving time and money. Speak to us for more information about our services and how BIM could help you and your project.
