TECHNICAL SERVICES

Condition Surveys
A detailed assessment of the condition of the fabric of existing buildings from which schedules of conservation works can be prepared.

Archival Recording of Heritage Places through measured drawings and/or photographic surveys
Archival quality photographic recording of heritage places can be provided to carefully record the fabric of a place prior to changes being undertaken. Preparation of basic or detailed measured drawings to record the built structure and/or to use for future documentation can also be supplied.

Conservation advice and documentation
Through many years of experience providing technical advice to owners of heritage places we are well placed to advise on appropriate methods of treatment and/or repair, as well as prepare documentation and organise suitably qualified specialist consultants and tradespeople to undertake the works.

Resolution of regulatory issues such as universal access, emergency egress and services.
With our extensive architectural experience on a variety of building types in the city and country, we have developed a practical and pragmatic approach to resolving complex regulatory issues such as the provision of emergency egress, fire services and universal access and associated facilities.

Development of sustainable solutions for heritage places
The retention and adaptive re-use of heritage buildings is becoming increasingly recognised as one of the most effective approaches to produce a sustainable future. Reducing demolition waste, the necessity to produce new materials, and retaining embodied energy in existing building materials enables an ongoing and enduring use for heritage buildings.
