Chiverton has undertaken the restoration and refurbishment of innumerable historic and ecclesiastical properties. These include Harbour Meadow, the 1930s Peter Moro designed 'modernist' style home, England's most impressive piece of 18th Century defensive architecture, Fort Cumberland owned by English Heritage, as well as various historic buildings on the Goodwood Estates and West Dean Estates.
A number of projects have been recognised with Architectural, Historic Building or Civic Trust Awards.

Nothing was too much trouble, with the works being completed on time and on budget. Having dealt with numerous construction projects, this was the easiest project to handle due solely to Chiverton’s.
