The condition assessment process is a vital component of a successful conservation treatment. It is during this phase that individual objects are more thoroughly examined, detailed conditions noted and appropriate conservation solutions addressed. Components of the preservation plan, such as theoretical parameters of preservation vs. restoration, guidelines for the replacement of missing elements, structural and setting requirements, etc., are addressed and discussed with the client. The resulting reports serve as planning guidelines for treatment, the development of bid specifications, and allocation of resources. Project costs are kept within anticipated budgets by providing comprehensive line-item expenses per treatment phase.
