QUALITY CONSERVATION FORUM – ADDITIONAL TO CONFERENCE PROGRAMME
Wednesday 4 November 2015, Adelaide
Australia ICOMOS has been working with the Association for Preservation Technology International’s Australasia Chapter to promote the concept of an Australian Heritage Quality Framework (AHQF) for sustainable heritage conservation.
An AHQF adopted by Australian heritage stakeholders would provide incentive for improvements in conservation quality by requiring adherence to quality benchmarks and training to achieve higher standards.
At this stage Australia ICOMOS supports the idea of self-certification, with benchmarks for all common conservation works and for self-certification to be mandatory for all statutory conditions of approval or government funding.
An Australian Heritage Quality Framework has the potential to:
- Achieve higher quality conservation works to Australia’s heritage places
- Provide property owners with more certainty that physical conservation works to heritage fabric will be carried out using appropriate sustainable methods
- Encourage the development and application of nationally recognised benchmarks for heritage construction projects
- Provide for improved employment opportunities and training in traditional trades. ?
This workshop will provide a forum to explore how quality measures can be developed and applied to the conservation of heritage fabric.
