We are a network of experienced businesses, working collaboratively in Aotearoa New Zealand, dedicated to the delivery of specialist Heritage Conservation and Museology services to the sector.

AICS-NZ was set up in the wake of the Canterbury earthquakes in response to a demand for a collective approach to the conservation and preservation of both built heritage and valued Taonga.

Member organisations come together as projects demand to provide a service on individual items or even major redevelopments.

Contact us to have a team of the most respected practitioners in the sector working on your project.

The AICS-NZ is group of conservators and specialists working in the preservation of cultural heritage in New Zealand.

We are available to take on heritage conservation, collections management and museum exhibition related projects in New Zealand and the Pacific region.

AICS-NZ members are businesses that offer multi-disciplinary expertise.

Conservators in the AICS are full members of the NZCCM and work collaboratively with selected specialists on projects where skills and knowledge complementary to the conservation profession are required.

AICS-NZ members are represented as individuals or small companies throughout New Zealand. We are largely flexible on where we work, we are committed to the preservation of our New Zealand heritage because we are New Zealanders by choice or birth and we have developed strong relationships with our communities. This enables us to work very effectively together, to pool resources and to find New Zealand solutions to New Zealand issues.

Key companies involved with AICS-NZ are Emily Fryer Conservation, Graham Stewart Stained Glass, Mark Whyte Art Projects & Stone Restoration, Studio Carolina Izzo, Manawatu Museum Services Ltd, Grant Collie Associates Ltd, Exhibition Engineering, Klein Lawrence and Tan, The Conservation Workshop, Sabine Weik Conservation and Source Design. We also welcome our latest collaborator Ana Machado Stone Conservation. Links to companies websites are on the Member Practitioner Page.

AICS-NZ members are committed to the Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice of the NZCCM, Museums Aotearoa and ICOM.
