WHO WE ARE
We have wide-ranging experience in all aspects of conservation and the heritage sector, we provide advice and consultancy to help you care, manage, display and store your collections safely.
Established in 1985, the LV.Greyes Partnership is based in Calgary, Alberta. The partnership brings together the expertise of two conservators, each with over thirty-five years experience of work on cultural property, within Canada and the United Kingdom. Both partners began with academic studies, followed by specific practical training, and this background permits a comprehensive approach.
WHAT WE DO
We specialise in two separate but related fields –
Conservation – Preventive + Remedial
Collections Management – Registration + Documentation + Collections Care
This dual specialism allows us to provide advice and consultancy on a wide range of issues faced in the management, conservation and interpretation of heritage material.
We work independently, or as required, with other experienced conservators. We also collaborate with specialists in other fields, drawing on their expertise to ensure a comprehensive approach to the work. It is a principle of the company that one partner is always in control of day to day decision making.
