As part of our 25 year celebrations, we've identified 25 iconic projects that have helped shape our history at International Conservation Services. Over the next few months we'll be sharing more stories and information about these iconic projects both on this website (so check back regularly), and via a range of other media.
Selecting 25 iconic projects was very difficult - and we cheated a bit in the end! Several of the ‘projects' are actually relationships - where we have carried out a series of projects over many years for a single client or institution. The organisations include Old Parliament House in Canberra, and the National Trust of Australia (NSW).
Then there are projects where we contributed to the conservation of a significant heritage place. These projects include the Capitol Theatre in Sydney, the Parramatta Justice Precinct and the Sydney Harbour YHA (Big Dig in Cumberland Street, The Rocks).
We've also included projects where we developed new conservation techniques, acquired new skills, or ventured into new fields of work.
And of course, there is one of the first projects worked on by Julian Bickersteth when he started the business - the ‘Treasures of the Holy See' exhibition from the Vatican for Expo 88 in Brisbane.
All of the projects and objects we work on have stories to tell. But the projects we've selected as our 25 icons have particularly interesting stories, and they also have special ICS stories that we treasure.
