Lorna Harrington is the ‘H’ in BCH! As a founding Director in 2006, she remains an Owner, Director and specialist in the Insurance Valuation of Historic Buildings.

After beginning her career as a Lloyds Broker focusing on art, museums, collections and historic houses, Lorna worked for leading insurers including Chubb and AIG, managing teams of appraisers specialising in large scale residential property and listed risks. Lorna’s focus at BCH is now leadership and strategy across the business; with a specific focus on residential and historic buildings. She also manages key account relationships and continues to ensure BCH are the “go to” experts for all things Reinstatement Cost Assessment. Her knowledge and experience has lead to her sitting on the BCIS Heritage Data Steering Committee.

Having completed an MA in History of Art & Architecture at the Courtauld Institute and a Postgraduate Diploma in Conservation of the Historic Environment, Lorna particularly enjoys visiting historic buildings, especially those from the 18th century, as well as anything very contemporary and may have appeared on Grand Designs. Away from work, Lorna enjoys amateur dramatics and musicals, because ‘life is a cabaret’!
