Demonstration projects

A demonstration project seeks to provide a customised assistance package to owners of buildings that pose particularly large, complex or significant conservation challenges.

Generally, this type of project will have one or more of the following characteristics:

  • buildings with multiple heritage elements of high conservation value
  • visually prominent, with strong contribution to streetscape character
  • multiple and/or complex ownership arrangements
  • a history of under-utilisation emphasising the importance of viable re-use
  • requirement for continuity of funding support over more than one year
  • estimated value of professional advice and documentation and conservation works exceeding $100k
  • buildings with high heritage value but with marginal or nil economic return.
