Steeped in history as the first university after Oxford and Cambridge to receive a Royal Charter in 1828, Edwards Hart were appointed by the University of Wales Trinity St. David to work on the original university Grade 2* Georgian building in the rural West Wales town of Lampeter.
A mixture of halls of residence and much grander public areas which includes a chapel, Edwards Hart were appointed to undertake a complete condition survey and an historic significance analysis which included a comprehensive ‘statement of significance’ report. Edwards Hart are also advising on any adaptation work and developing and refining proposals through a series of heritage impact assessments.
Leading the project team at Edwards Hart is John Edwards who commented: “Such important historic buildings deserve the right approach and it is pleasing to work for a client who is also professional in their approach”. John added: “In all respects from technicalities to significance analysis we have followed BS 7913: 2013, as well as Cadw’s conservation principles”.
