How We Work
The major tenet of this conservation practice, and one that informs all we do, is every object must be assessed on its own merits, and treatment tailored to the unique needs of each one. Each window we care for, in any capacity, will receive an individualized assessment aimed at finding and reaching the best possible conservation outcome. These assessments take into account the window (or windows), its size, setting, techniques used, condition and location, as well as the conservation requirements of all aspects of the buildings and surrounding elements. Additionally, we always seek to work cooperatively with all parties involved in a project -- from stakeholders to architects, conservation experts to community members -- to come to an ideal and and effective conservation result, while consistently remaining an advocate for the needs of your stained glass.
We are committed to actively pursuing the highest of ethical principles in everything we do. This includes following the ethical and practical guidelines of the Corpus Vitrearum (the international body for research into stained glass history, technique and conservation), the International Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works (IIC), the American Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works (AIC), the Secretary of the Interior's Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties, and the international charters on the conservation of historic properties.
