Conservation and Storage

Max Communications conservation department continues to accumulate expertise and is able to offer clients a broad suite of conservation services, whether as standalone projects or as a preparatory process prior to digitising materials.

Specifically we offer general and pre-digitisation collection and storage assessments, photographic conservation, paper conservation, book conservation, mould and mildew remediation services as well as secure storage and housing solutions. In addition, we offer specific advice and conservation services for digitisation projects.

In addition to our physical conservation and storage services, Max offer comprehensive digitisation, digital preservation, archive management and digitisation project management solutions.

Please use the button below to expand the article and find out more about what we offer. Alternatively, please feel free to use the buttons below to contact us or speak to us directly on 0208 309 5445.

Our conservators work from an on-site studio stocked with a range of specialist equipment, and our working processes are integrated across departments, meaning that our in-house conservators are on hand to provide advice and assistance to technicians, particularly when handling fragile or potentially "high risk" materials as well as providing comprehensive handling training to all Max staff whose roles include the handling of materials.

Max clients can also be reassured that their material is held in an environment which is monitored for temperature and humidity and that an ongoing and rigorous pest management regime is in place.
