Buildings and works

One of the important ways our Conservation staff protect the heritage values of the Port Arthur Historic Sites is through the conservation of standing historic structures and the management of supporting infrastructure.

Much of this is done through the skills of our Buildings and Works Crew. Tasks include the initiation and implementation of large work projects, and ongoing minor and maintenance works programs.

Initiatives such as technical workshops, and promotion and use of traditional building methods allow us to work with the broader conservation area and Tasmanian community.
