First Peoples Cultural Heritage and Cultural Values
We work with Registered Aboriginal Parties, Traditional Owner organisations and other First Peoples to understand cultural values and develop cultural heritage management plans and interpretation plans, which respect First Peoples’ cultural heritage and align with legislative requirements. Our team includes Heritage Advisors listed with First Peoples – State Relations. We are committed to truthtelling and inclusive histories of heritage places, and to enabling First Peoples’ voices to be heard.
By applying a balance of strategic thinking, technical knowledge, and landscape and horticultural expertise, we help our clients to understand, manage, renew and conserve significant cultural landscapes, parks,
gardens and trees. Our expertise can help identify important landscape heritage places and advise on sensitive ongoing management.
We deliver a full suite of historical archaeology services, from desktop assessments and research methodologies to excavation and curation. Our methods and standards of documentation are industry leading, and align with legislative requirements and consent conditions.
Across all types of historic buildings, from vernacular to iconic, our heritage assessments, planning, management and conservation advice has ensured important places across Australian neighbourhoods,
suburbs and towns and cities are protected and contribute to life in our communities. We excel in providing peer design review and heritage advice to help our clients and their design teams tailor their proposals
to sensitive heritage contexts.
Many of the projects we work on require historical research. Using documentary and physical research, our narrative and thematic histories provide insightful understandings of places and lived experiences in the past. Our thematic environmental histories and heritage histories underpin and evidence the cultural significance and archaeological assessments of all types of heritage places.
We can work with you to develop interpretation strategies and plans that creatively present the significance of places, with engaging themes and storylines discovered through our research. We can lead you through the interpretation planning process from concept, through design development and installation.
