CONDITION ASSESSMENTS &
CONDITION REPORTS

 

A CONDITION ASSEMENT IS PART OF GOOD PREVENTIVE CONSERVATION PRACTICE

A condition assessment will establish what condition your bronze is in at this point in time and what factors have caused it to degrade.

Analysis of corrosion products or coatings might be involved to put together a clear picture of the bronze’s situation. 

A condition report goes into even more detail than a condition assessment. It might include historic research, samples, options for bronze conservation, bronze maintenance, bronze restoration, and budgets. 

The aim with our condition assessments and condition reports is to give our clients good advice  so they can make the best decisions for the bronzes in their care.

Do you write specifications for Tenders?

Are Condition Reports only relevant for historic features and statues?
Definitely not! It can be incredibly valuable to have conservation advice on a new build projects too. Often bronze finishes degrade in ways that project managers and architects would never have predicted. The result is a high restoration bill for their clients.
