Freelance heritage consultant

Chantal Danieli is an award winning heritage consultant available for hire in Sydney. Leverage nearly 20 years of experience for heritage evaluation, adaptive re-use and conservation.

Through our numerous years of experience I strongly believe in striking the right balance between the private’s right to develop land and protecting the public interest concerns for heritage.

Any decisions about heritage items/places should be practical and viable whilst retaining heritage values and identified significance.

Client reviews about our consultancy work

“I contacted Sydney Heritage Consultants, with very short notice, to prepare a peer review.
The peer review was excellent, very detailed and extremely professional. I could not have asked for a better job. Chantal was friendly, knowledgeable and professional. I highly recommend their services.”

David Little

“I commissioned Chantal’s services for preparation of The Heritage Impact Report required for my DA.

I was very impressed with the extremely comprehensive report I received from Chantal. A lot of research had gone into the preparation of the report and to anticipate and address any concerns the council may have regarding the conservation of the heritage elements in the proposed renovation.

The DA application was approved without any issues by my council which is usually very fussy with any DAs on heritage listed properties.

I got several quotes before choosing Sydney Heritage Consultants. I was surprised at the wide variance in quotes in the industry.

Very glad I chose Chantal, as not only did I save a lot, but also got a very comprehensive report.”

Kannan Subrahmanyan

“I have recently had the pleasure of working with Sydney Heritage Consultants on a number of projects that required heritage impact statements.

Being a town planner I often require a number of consultants involved in my projects and have worked with a number of heritage consultants in the past.

Chantal has impressed me from our first project together and I hope to work with her on many more projects in the future. Chantal has always been professional, helpful and efficient in the way that she conducts her work.

It has been a pleasure working with her and I would highly recommend her to anyone who requires assistance with a heritage matter”
