RBA’s fearless, considered and confidential advice will give you the advantage to make informed decisions.
The stewardship of a culturally significant heritage place can be a complex and daunting responsibility. RBA have extensive experience in assisting owners and managers of heritage places to shepherd the process of care and reinvigoration from project inception to a new sustainable future relevance. We have the capacity to sort the wheat from the chaff. We are not box ticking or code-compliance directed – instead we are forensic, lateral, creative and sustainable solution orientated.
We offer a broad range of heritage advice services which we adapt to suit your particular requirements. Popular services include:
- Due Diligence / Pre-purchase Advice
We clarify statutory imperatives and provide guidance in relation to development opportunities and constraints.
- Appraisals of Heritage Value
We assess cultural significance and articulate the specific heritage values that belong to a place based on the eight recognised heritage criteria.
- Design Advice
We work independently or alongside other architects to help resolve design solutions that capture and enliven inherited legacy to achieve good heritage impact outcomes.
- Peer Reviews
We undertake peer reviews of work prepared by other heritage practitioners.
- Submissions to Authorities
We prepare reports to accompany submissions to authorities in response to proposed actions such as planning scheme amendments.
