Weir Phillips Heritage and Planning undertakes a full range of heritage services. Our approach to heritage issues is holistic, guiding clients through the heritage process in order to provide the best outcome possible.

We work closely with Weir Phillips Architects to ensure that heritage solutions take into consideration key architectural issues, allowing for the appropriate balance between heritage requirements and the creation of quality built environments.

We work in cities and rural areas around Australia on a wide range of projects, including residential projects, public buildings, hotels, hospitals, public gardens and urban areas. Clients include private individuals, the state government, councils, developers and institutions.


Weir Phillips Heritage and Planning has a carefully curated architectural library of over two thousand volumes. The library contains architectural histories, architectural and product catalogues, local histories, street directories and construction guides dating from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

The collection sets us apart from other consultancies, providing us with a wealth of information that is not available online.
