heritage assessment

Heritage assessment work undertaken by DASH Architects includes:

  • Heritage impact assessment
  • Due diligence assessments pre or post-purchasing heritage listed properties
  • Self-assessment of National Heritage places
  • Significance assessment for Local, State or National historic heritage places
  • Site Heritage Management Plans.

Our work extends from the assessment of Local, State or National heritage value of individual places, to the impact of projects on identified places of heritage value,and broader to cultural landscapes. Assessment of State and Local heritage value is undertaken against the criteria established by the relevant legislation, while the assessment of proposed works considers potential impacts to the heritage place, as well as to its landscape and setting.  This approach results in holistic and flexible advice that is readily integrated into wider project objectives and outcomes.

DASH Architects have undertaken many self-assessments for impacts to National Heritage places, which is a separate process to the State’s planning system. We also prepare Site Heritage Management Plans, which assist mitigate the risk of damage to heritage places during construction works.
