The Practice Background

Founded in 1994 by John C Goom, the practice, based in Evesham, Worcestershire, is now well established with active projects throughout the Midlands and the South of England working in sensitive environments in both urban and rural contexts.

Our work is not limited by scale, and ranges from large conservation projects to small domestic works. It includes the repair and conservation of churches, large country houses and the conversion and re-use of redundant buildings. Our pragmatic approach to repair and conservation is balanced with the needs of the client to provide uniquely crafted and sensitive projects.

We also have experience in the design of new buildings in sensitive & historic settings  - see Studley 900 Project and Upper Spon Street – and can offer conservation accredited building surveying for clients looking to purchase listed properties.

We work closely with all our clients who range from private individuals and developers, parochial church councils to trusts and other corporate bodies. We have been commissioned to undertake work at several National Trust properties including Charlecote Park in Warwickshire; Snowshill Manor in Gloucestershire and Croome Park in Worcestershire and we are currently involved with a project for the Landmark Trust at Llwyn Celyn near Abergavenny in wales.


We currently look after twentyfive churches, some of national importance including Dore Abbey in Herefordshire and Berkeley Church in Gloucestershire. In addition to inspections and repairs we have been involved with several re-ordering projects and design of new structures and fittings. We have also prepared reports on properties for the Churches Conservation Trust and the Historic Chapels Trust.

The practice has been involved with several successful grant applications to the Heritage Lottery Fund, English Heritage and the Getty Grant Programme. We have a good working relationship with English Heritage, local conservation and planning officers and amenity societies and John Goom undertakes voluntary casework for the SPAB.

The practice also works with several building preservation trusts including, Hopton Castle Preservation Trust, Woodchester Mansion Trust, Spon End Building Preservation Trust and Wychavon Building Preservation Trust.
