Condition Assessments

As an organisation whose business is digitisation, a thorough and rigorous condition assessment of materials is vital before any work is carried out.

On digitisation projects we carry the assessment out an in depth pre-capture assessment and provide advice and expertise around how best to handle and support the material and capture the items.

In all cases, if materials need treatment, we create bespoke treatment plans in consultation with the client, tailored to their specific project goals. We also provide treatment reports for all projects, keeping the client informed at all times.

Finally, we source and plan rehousing solutions for archival materials, preventing the recurrence of any potential damage.

Max Communications and the RSA Archive have a successful, long standing working relationship. We have undertaken several digitisation projects together to scan our numerous large sized artworks, prints and diagrams. More recently we successfully migrated to Max’s archive management and digital preservation services, DRYAD and SOTERIA. I cannot fault either the consistent quality of the digitisation or the quality of professional service provided and would recommend, Max Communications, without reservation.
