Protection of our building and cultural heritage through the correct building materials and adaptive re-use is an area of expertise for which Lindsay Dynan has been recognised for more than 30 years.
We offer a thorough understanding of the performance of materials and past building methods, as well as a practical recognition of what can be realistically achieved.
We have worked on some of NSW’s and WA’s most important heritage buildings, won a coveted award for engineering excellence for the adaptive re-use of a heritage building in Newcastle East, and contributed to a number of award-winning architectural projects.
