Restoration can be considered for the vast majority of damages, but our team can also offer risk assessments to avoid any issues occurring. This includes our team visiting the location of an artwork or collection to assess the environmental conditions and offer solutions for their safe preservation.

Our studio conducts condition reports on all manner of artworks for their records, as well as helping to discover more about their era and artist. You can read more about these assessments here.
Assessments for restoration, as well as quotations for conservation treatments, can be taken out prior to a purchase in an auction house or gallery. Our team can base this on photographs of the artwork or an on-site visit to give your client further information on the condition before the sale is completed.

Storage solutions, specialist removals and art handling
Typical removal companies may not be well acquainted with fine art and specialist items, which is why our conservators can step in to provide packaging, transportation and storage services with methods of a museum standard. Shipment advice can be provided, as well as the creation of made-to-measure crates and packaging.

Storage within a conservation-approved environment can be provided, this will ensure that all manner of artwork or specialist contents are cared for by trained professionals, as well as fully insured with appropriate measures in place. Temperature and humidity controlled environments are important for artworks such as those on paper, which may not be possible in a standard storage facility. Our studio offers not only a secured environment, but close proximity to trained conservation staff who will regularly check conditions.
