Our Story

The group is comprised of a construction company, Living Heritage, and a development company, Gr8Space, that together have built a collective portfolio of over 1000 homes. 


Founded in the 1980s by Chris and Anne Liddell, as forerunners in regeneration, the company specialised in individually-designed bespoke homes created from disused and semi-derelict listed buildings.


They were later joined by their son Nick (a Structural Engineer) and daughter Faye (an Architect) as Construction Director and Design Director respectively. 


Nick took over as Group Managing Director in 2010 and launched our main contracting company in 2012. He has since forged new links with clients including the design-led retirement property developers PegasusLife (part of the LifeStory group) and urban regeneration specialist Eutopia Homes, while still continuing our listed building developments. 

What began as an ambitious vision to transform neglected properties, has grown into an established regional business, with a solid reputation for quality, service and excellence.
