If you’re looking to preserve and adapt New Zealand heritage buildings to meet your changing needs, we can help.
Conservation, in terms of buildings, is all about the management of change. It’s about understanding what makes a building significant and endeavouring to ensure that particular features or elements are retained in any change of use.
This is vital to maintain the eclectic mix of architectural styles that form the backdrop to our towns and cities.
Poor maintenance, inappropriate alteration and, in some cases, the complete demolition of historic buildings have led to the irretrievable loss of fabric within New Zealand.
Whether you are seeking to repair, alter, maintain or purchase a heritage building, our highly experienced team will guide you through the process and help conserve the nation’s heritage. We have a high level of experience in this field with team members having worked as building surveyors and craftsmen on heritage buildings in New Zealand and the United Kingdom. We will use this experience to ensure your building retains its historical significance while meeting your needs as well as those of the New Zealand Building Code.
Services we offer include building condition and measured surveys, architectural photogrammetry, 3D modelling, conservation plans, architectural design and contract administration.
