Now, one of the oldest and most established heritage consultancies in greater Sydney and NSW, with 3+ decades of experience to inform our approach to heritage issues, we can provide targeted insightful advice to achieve client objectives.


We have 'been there' and 'done that', whether it be research, design, planning, archaeology, interpretation, archival recording or community consultation. We have a specialised skill base of heritage experts -  historians, architects, engineers, European and Aboriginal archaeologists, surveyors, photographers, and historic landscape specialists, complemented by artists, designers, video and book producers - established over our many years in the industry, in fact from when 'heritage' as a profession was in its infancy.


Your project can be completed on time and on budget to the highest professional standards.

Sue Rosen:  Heritage Policy Analyst/Senior Research Historian

Draw on Dr Rosen's 35 years as a Sydney heritage consultant to enhance your project's chance of success. Born in Lockhart in the southern Riverina, Sue was educated at Mt Erin High School and Trinity Senior High in Wagga Wagga. She came to Sydney to attend Macquarie University in the mid 1970s where she undertook her BA Dip Ed. After a couple of years of overseas travel, she returned with a Canadian husband and American daughter to Macquarie to do her MA. Gaining employment as a historian and heritage researcher in 1988 she found her passion and vocation, becoming involved in policy and planning and design.  A decade into a consulting career, Sue expanded a commission by Pacific Power to investigate a convict stockade on the Road to Bathurst into a PhD thesis. In between there have been hundreds of studies, five books, another daughter, many enduring friendships and lots of adventures and discoveries.
