The Heritage Studio has considerable experience in the production of heritage assessments using a range of evaluation criteria for both public and private clients.

An important foundation document, a heritage assessment identifies the significance of a place (or area) by evaluating its heritage values against a set of criteria.

It requires an understanding of a place’s history through detailed research, an appreciation of its architecture through on-site inspections, and a comparison of its historical and/or physical qualities with other similar or related places.

Understanding the heritage values and significance of a place is considered one of the important first steps in identifying its future management.
