Heritage Works secures income from project management fees for its own projects and for managing others' building contracts. It also receives property management fees from rental income or service charges for the buildings that it owns. Work for third parties enables the Trust to share its expertise and educate others in the processes of historic building conservation and regeneration, thus contributing to fulfilment of its second charitable object.
The Trust is an independent, heritage charity whose aim is to provide solutions for historic buildings that have become liabilities, identifying the means of turning them into assets. Clients may be building owners or the statutory authorities responsible for ensuring that listed buildings are maintained. Heritage Works builds teams of consultants to respond to tender opportunities, or is able to form part of another lead consultant's team.
