Jennifer Chambers BA (hons) B(Arch) RIBA SCA IHBC
Jennifer Chambers established Chambers Conservation Ltd after 13 years with Donald Insall Associates in nearby Chester, following her chosen specialism in historic buildings work. She qualified as an architect in 2002 and gained valuable experience in architectural design, specifying repair works and report writing. She is an RIBA SCA (Specialist Conservation Accredited) Architect.
Although interested in all building periods, Jennifer’s greatest passion is for Victorian and Edwardian architecture, in particular that of the Arts and Crafts Movement and associated with Industrial Heritage. Jennifer particularly enjoys the attention to detail required when conserving, repairing and adapting churches. She is an active member of the Victorian Society (formerly sitting on the Northern Building Committee) and a full member of the Institute of Historic Building Conservation (IHBC).
Millie Thompson has recently completed her university education and is working towards full qualification as an architect. Millie is a very talented architectural illustrator and enjoys learning about the repair of historic buioldings in a 'hands-on' way.
Seirian Tranter joined us having lived in New Zealand and Australia for over ten years. She is half way through her architectural education and is particularly keen on studying the history of buildings and sites.
Millie and Seirian are founders of 'Heritage Connect', a new organisation aimed at sharing knowledge and experience amongst young heritage professionals.
Tegwen, as a key member of the team, is in charge of spreading leaves around the office, inappropriate behaviour at lunch times and generally maintaining a positive working environment!
