Heritage Conservation

What is heritage conservation?

Heritage conservation is the maintenance and management of changes to a heritage asset such as a building or memorial. This can be for significant enhancement of the asset such as a structural addition or, general maintenance and cleaning to preserve the assets structural integrity and appearance and importantly retaining the cultural significance and original fabric of the asset.

Purpose of heritage conservation

Maintaining and enhancing heritage assets has a big impact and benefit to the economy and the assets local community. From tourism to jobs, education to recreation. Heritage conservation ensures the quality of life within its neighbourhood is improved. There are many policies and legislation regarding the protection of heritage assets.

Cost of heritage conservation

The cost of conservation to a heritage asset can vary quite dramatically. Unfortunately, there cannot be a set or flat price as there are a
number of factors that determine how much the conservation will ultimately cost. Some of these factors include:

Level of Decay

If the asset has been preserved and conservation carried out regularly the level of decay will vary. The age of the asset and how often it is exposed to the elements will also affect the level of decay.

Construction Material

What the asset is currently made of and how hard it is to source the same material as well as the state that the current material is in will factor into the costs.

Construction Type

There are many different ways to carve a stone, just like there are many different ways to lay them. Depending on the type of construction used during the asset creation this will also be a cost factor.

Man Hours

Due to the level of decay, construction material and construction type will determine the number of man-hours needed in order to complete the conservation.

At a recent meeting of St Paul' Presbyterian Church Committee of Management, the great service and generous support you continue to provide to ensure that our heritage buildings are restored and maintained was acknowledged.
As you would be aware, we are very proud of our beloved "Kirk on the Hill" but the cost of restoring and maintaining it can be overwhelming at times. However, the knowledge that we are receiving such a high standard of service from your company accompanied with such acts of great generosity and good will continue to encourage us.
