Heritage & Adaptive Re-Use

Heritage buildings encompasses a wide range of functions from education (National Art School), art galleries (Art Gallery of NSW), museums (Justice & Police Museum) and residential (Government House) which all require the same respect for the building but also require adaptation to suit improved or different uses. This approach does not necessarily confine the work to heritage listed buildings but can involve any building where the intent is to maintain the building in a way that reflects its original intent and which may involve interpreting aspects of the building that have been lost or will be lost as a result of the new works. In many instances the need for the new works is to ensure that the building can continue to be used, albeit with a change of use as the demand requires.

Our involvement in adaptive re-use projects includes the National Art School Building 11 which converted a semi derelict building into additional student studio space and Chris has previously provided the cost advice for the conversion of the railway workshops in Redfern into the Carriageworks performing arts centre which has become an extremely successful example of the re-invigoration of an underutilised asset whilst maintaining the original integrity of the building.
