ABOUT SAM HALE CONSULTANCY

My approach is simple - providing practical pragmatic advice based on understanding. Having worked professionally in the conservation sector for over a decade I have a good background in both the legislation and planning side of conservation as well as the practical side working with materials, contractors and architects to deliver successful projects. 

 

I have worked in Wales since 2011 and have expertise in and passion for Welsh vernacular architecture.

I work across Wales and into Shropshire, Herefordshire, Gloucestershire and the South-West. 

I provide a range of services listed below:

 

  •   Specialist materials advice

    • lime mortars, plasters/renders

    • limecrete floors

    • vapour permeable paints

    • natural and vapour permeable insulations (woodwool, woodfibre, cork, sheep's wool, etc.) 

    • insulating plasters

    • stone repair mortars

    • timber-framing and infill

  • Building condition and repair surveys/reports, including pre-aquisition reports

  • Advice on damp in buildings

  • Liaison with national heritage bodies, conservation officers and contractors

  • House histories and historical research into sites including map regression

  • Heritage statements and impact assessments

 

My own conservation project, a 17th century Welsh longhouse & farmstead, has welcomed individuals and organisations from across the sector from contractors and homeowners to the Landmark Trust, National Trust Bursary Scheme, Historic Farm Buildings Group and Brecknock Houses Group.
