Heritage and Conservation
As part of One Group Construction, we have some of the best craftsmen in the industry.
This is coupled with good relationships within our supply chain of specialist craftsmen within the wider heritage industry, who are on-hand to preserve and restore landmark buildings across the region with a high degree of sensitivity and attention to detail.
We have delivered projects including refurbishment conversions and renovations for buildings such as libraries, care homes and public buildings.

Mill Street, Mildenhall
Known locally as an eyesore, we were tasked with restoring this derelict builder’s merchants and yard located on Mill Street, Mildenhall into a collection of flats, apartments and houses.
We negotiated and took on the site towards the end of 2012 and developed it on behalf of Havebury, who own the land. The buildings had previously been empty for almost five years.
As the site is built over an aquifer (a body of saturated rock through which water can easily move) we worked closely with conservation officers over the course of the project to ensure that the existing barn structure on the site is preserved and sympathetically restored, including the use of traditional elements including limewash to allow the buildings to breathe.
Scott Bailey, Head of Development at Havebury, which has offices in Bury St Edmunds, said: “There is huge demand for affordable housing and this development was very well received by the local authority.”
Scott added: “We’ve been able to transform a derelict site into stylish and attractive homes and help rejuvenate the High Street in the town.”
Withersfield Road, Haverhill
In early 2016, MP for West Suffolk Matthew Hancock officially opened the development at Withersfield Road in Haverhill, which was completed in 2015.
The project involved the construction of 27 new dwellings to provide facilities for the ‘over 55s’ community and communal areas for the residents to socialise and interact with each other.
Existing derelict bungalows were demolished at the front of the site and the new buildings were traditional masonry construction. The project made use of land that was landlocked, due to the brook, to provide much needed homes for the Haverhill area.
