Conservation Register

Posted on Thursday 23 May 2013

Late last year, Conservation Director Cathy Littlejohn’s experience and professionalism in the field of conservation was recognised through accreditation (PACR) with the Institute of Conservation (ICON). This summer Hare and Humphreys, under Cathy’s lead, have been placed on the Conservation Register.

The process of accreditation is not simple and reflects the high standards required by ICON.  It is awarded not only to those who demonstrate care and best practice in conservation, but those who also undertake on going development, adherence to professional guidelines and identification and implementation of conservation options amongst other requirements.  Assessment is made based on the application form and a visit by at least two PACR assessors.

Following accreditation Cathy began the process of entering Hare and Humphreys on ICON’s Conservation Register, providing four recent client references, which showed the breadth of conservation work undertaken by the company.  Projects included the conservation of numerous mauroflage canvases at the Café Royal, London, uncovering and conservation of a 19th century painted scheme at The Cottier Theatre, Glasgow and to the historic interiors at Bentley Priory, Stanmore, recently opened by the Prince of Wales.

Hare and Humphreys are extremely proud to be on the Conservation Register and demonstrate our continued dedication to the historic environment.
