JW Evans Silver Factory, Birmingham

Ian Clark Restoration was awarded by competitive tender the contract to supply specialist engineering and metals conservation consultancy specifically tasked to work in partnership with English Heritage and the project stakeholders to deliver a bold and intellectually challenging conservation philosophy for the JW Evans Silver Factory project. 

ICR was contracted to carry out an extensive machinery audit and condition survey and to propose a pragmatic and sensitive conservation method statement. This statement had to be able to satisfy the core preservation mission statement which positively embraced both a policy for conserved static machinery as well as one that was able to be refined to promote live operation as an integral strand of any future interpretive enhancement.
