Generally, the strategy development process involves the identification of heritage values for the place or places, the compilation of a list of assets and the development of procedures and protocols. The results are designed to be embedded in a client’s project management systems, ensuring compliance with statutory requirements and best practice. The focus is on heritage place management and advance planning. Many strategies are designed to be delivered over time.
Our skilled heritage asset management team can:
— Work with complex site types
— Work with single, multiple or dispersed assets
— Undertake large scale assessment work
— Provide advice on heritage issues, risks and advantages
— Develop a new strategy, or work with an existing one
— Identify works priorities to facilitate budgeting
— Ensure strategies are developed in accordance with statutory and policy frameworks
— Write a heritage procedure manual
Strategies can be tailored to facilitate broader forward planning — including planning for maintenance and capital works, and, on occasion, lease or divestment of assets. They can also be used as a base for facilities accommodation reviews and master planning work.
We take a flexible approach when it comes to the format in which an outcome is to be delivered, working closely with clients to integrate strategies into existing management systems.
We work with public and private sector organisations, and with many of them we have developed long term relationships.
