Purcell was commissioned by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission to advise on the repair of a number of war cemeteries in Asia Pacific, including Kranji War Cemetery in Singapore, Delhi War Memorial in India, Jakarta War Memorial in Indonesia and Taukkyan War Cemetery in Myanmar.

Providing detailed and precise condition surveys, together with the repair schedules, enabled us to align closely the identified defects, the remedial works required, and delivery of practical solutions. The results have assisted the client to maintain the architectural quality and integrity of these fine memorials.

With Purcell, we have helped our teams worldwide develop in-house skills to assess the significance of our approximately 25,000 sites in over 150 countries.
