ObjektCare provides comprehensive a preventative maintenance programme called the ObjektCare Programme which ensures your sculptures and art objekts are always looking their best – regardless of factors such as:

Sculptures that have lacked attention for some time may need minor or major repair and restoration work carried out. ObjektCare have a commitment to high quality restorations – whether it be a smaller fix or major restoration that includes stripping and applying a new patina (chemically induced colour applied to a bronze sculpture) to a large sculpture.
The ObjektCare team are experts capable of broad range of sculpture installations anywhere in New Zealand. Be it a single multistory high sculpture or 100+ hanging art pieces – it’s likely we can help.
