Emma Heaver Architect's practice specialises in bespoke contemporary extensions, new build houses, green oak frame, barn conversions and listed building extensions and alterations. Emma has worked as an architect for 25 years and she has over 15 years experience in working with green oak frame buildings.
Emma tailors her service to your needs, whether you require a full architectural service from inception through to completion on site, or just achieving listed building consent or planning approval. She is committed to looking at the most sustainable yet affordable alternatives for new builds and extensions, to provide the most suitable solution for each individual project.
Designs are hand-drawn in pencil at the planning/listed building application stage, then developed either in pen and ink or on the computer for the working drawing stage, depending on the complexity of the project.
Emma's Experience working for Roderick James Architects in Totnes has led to a specialist interest in Green Oak Framed Construction. Working closely with expert framing companies such as Carpenter Oak Ltd of East Cornworthy she ensures that the frame and building designs are seamlessly integrated.
Emma works alongside a dedicated team of local building professionals: Structural Engineers; Quantity Surveyors; Renewable Energy Consultants; Planning Consultants and Ecological Experts to deliver a comprehensive service for her clients encompassing all aspects of the build.
With a M.A. (Distinction)in Architecture Conservation from the University of Plymouth, Emma is well qualified to liaise with Local Authority Conservation Officers on Listed Building projects. Together with her husband and children Emma converted a listed barn and Linhay to be her home and office. She therefore has a great deal of empathy with Self-builders and homeowners and is able to guide them through what can be a complex and stressful building process.
