Motivated by creative design solutions, Nairita provides expert and frank advice to clients on development affecting historic buildings and places. Her experience ranges from adaptation and conversion of listed buildings to heritage-led regeneration schemes and strategic housing and infrastructure projects within sensitive historic landscapes. Working closely with architects and engineers, she has a contemporary approach towards conservation, encouraging modern designs and construction solutions to achieve compatible uses. She has also worked on strategic master planning for regeneration and housing schemes, public realm designs; prepared borough-wide characterisation studies, townscape analysis, conservation area appraisals & management plans.
Having worked in three local authorities in the past, Nairita has first-hand experience in the challenges of ensuring sustained use of historic buildings whilst delivering large scale regeneration, housing and infrastructure projects. At Haringey, she was the sole conservation officer during a time when the borough witnessed a significant growth in development sites. Here she advised on a number of large scale applications in support of sustainable development. Along with architects, planners and other specialists, she worked closely with Historic England, planning committee members, local councillors and neighbourhood groups; presenting at stakeholder meetings, and public talks including NLA.
