There’s a simple reason why Artefact was appointed to the Sydney Opera House Heritage Consultancy Panel: our expertise in built heritage. Demonstrating the depth and quality of our assessments and advice, we have been entrusted with working on this World Heritage Listed icon of the nation.

Jørn Utzon’s masterpiece isn’t the only house we’ve worked on. From suburban homes to major residential developments, clients value our thorough knowledge of the relevant legislation and planning controls. We also understand architectural history and heritage materials, ensuring that our advice is compliant with current codes and hands-on best practice. For this reason we’ve provided built heritage advice for railway stations across the Sydney network, to enable maximum passenger accessibility and rail fleet upgrades while retaining local character.

Whether you require built heritage assessment, cultural landscapes analysis, a detailed history or mapping, we understand your priorities. Our pro-active risk management approach helps you deliver compliant and attractive adaptations, particularly when timing is tight.
